www.wildmind.org/has good advice on posture, etc., for meditation newbies.
Do you get much exercise, like walking or running? Walking will definitely help increase your back strength and make it easier to sit up straight and have good posture for meditation, and in life in general. Walking at least 2 miles per day will make a big difference after a week or two.
