to the Team!
there is a getting started program on SP. Look for the guide to running. Or google couch 2 5K. there are a few programs there. One gets you running a 5K in 9 weeks, there's another that takes longer which might be better for you w/ your hips.
I would think your hips are bothering you because of the stress of the extra weight and hopefully this will go away when you lose it.
please note, you might gain weight the first few weeks of running, this is normal. You body will be retaining more fluid to repair muscles.
