It's important to add some cardio in as well.  Fat does not turn into muscle.  They are two different things.  Situps will help build muscle, though.

Hey that was great advice.. start doing core workouts and yoga,I wouldn't worry about weights..watch the vids and exercise with a vid our two everyday..also my fitness pal app it's absolutely famous for counting calories effectively and ultra easy to use I suggest getting it, I'm doing it right now it's actually lots of fun..also dieting accounts for like80% of weight, start eating very healthy fruits vegetables all that good stuff

Building muscle is as much about what you eat as it is about how you exercise. Katie is right that fat doesn't turn into muscle. If you want to build muslce AND lose fat, you need to make sure you're eating right and pushing your muscles hard. If you're not even a little bit sore the next day then you're probably not working your muscles hard enough. They need to be torn to build. And they need protein and water to repair themselves after they've been torn.

Keep at it. Do some research. Find what works for you and hit it hard. Good luck!

Doing abb exercises are not recommended for weight loss and to get Abbs you need to lower your body fat percentage. Situps don't burn noteable calories and they build muscle way under the layers of fat which doesn't help anyone I'd say stick with hiit workouts and good diet with healthy omega 3 fats and all
