I to suffer from PCOS as a complication of having Fibromyalgia... The only thing you can do is just ask your Dr. which is the best excercise for you.. Or just walk, drink lots of water.. It is possible to get pregnant with PCOS and being obese.. I am considered severely obese and I am pregnant with baby number 4 but after 5 years......If you'd like to talk, feel free to hit me up, I have some really great websites for PCOS and getting pregnant

Cut out soda, cut down on simple sugars & simple Carbs. Smaller meals, balanced diet. Walk, ease into workouts. Think lifestyle changes instead of quick instant results. Losing weight for us PCOSers is difficult no matter how overweight we are. Don't get discouraged. As little as 10lbs can make a difference.

Walking helps. 30-60 minuets a day.
Cutting out excess sugars (simple carbs in moderation).
Small meals.
Two snacks a day with 3 meals.

I did all of that as stated above and lost at one point 62lbs.

Eating healthy helps too. If you walk for at least 30 minutes 5 times a week, it can help regulate your metabolism. What you should really do, is eat foods that are low in carbs, which women who have PCOS can't digest very well, and turns in to glucose-that in turn adds on the unhealthy weight. Most of the time, if you go to your doctor, they will perscribe Metformin to help with that. I don't have a baby yet, but we're starting Clomid this weekend!
