    I agree. I read an article on T-Nation about butt exercises. At the top of the page was a photo of a slender woman with the shapeliest ass on Earth. I was like, yeah, I want that!

    And all the exercises were illustrated by a big, burly guy I wouldn't want to look anything like.

    Agree. OP, go and REALLY do a Starting Strength type program for many months. Eat clean Primal. There's basically zero chance you'll either look like a bodybuilder or look "fat".

    I lift VERY heavy things several times a week, and I look like comic book Spiderman. No one's ever said I'm "too big" or "fat" or anything else.

    Ripptoe is also 57. Just because you think he looks fat doesn't mean that you'll look like him if you do Starting Strength.

    I recommend Crossfit. Find a good box. They will beat you into shape. However, you may not like it if all you care about is appearance. Most people I know who really like Crossfit care about performance more than appearance. Most people also care about appearance, of course. But if ALL you care about is appearance, you may have a hard time with a lot of things. This is because performance improvements happen more quickly than improvements in appearance so if all you care about is appearance, you might quickly decide that it's not worth the effort.
