As you get older, it is so important to integrate weight training as well as cardio for several reasons.  Muscle, unlike fat, is a very active tissue that continues eating up calories, even after your workout is done.

Weight training helps build bone density, which is so important as you get older.

If you stop weight training when you get older, you'll loose fat-burning potential.  You can loose up to 5 % of your metabolic rate every decade according to the American Council on Exercise

With strength training,  you enhance  your overall body composition, and look leaner and stronger.  Find a program or support environment that allows you to make strength training a regular part of your continued good health.
