I wouldn't wait due to your age. You don't want to take care of the weight issue only to find you've waited too long. I think an RE could set up a program or moniter you so that you are on a path to fertility instead of waiting until the weight issue is tackled. Who knows, maybe the RE would have other advice as well.
