If you can comfortably do 10 - 15 minutes of walking, that's a great place to start. But remember that you do need to challenge your body, so I'd personally increase it to the point where you can tell it's 'work' for your body. That's when you will start to see change.

I'm not a doctor or personal trainer, but I *am* someone who's been morbidly obese at various times in my life and talked to doctors, different personal trainers, nutritionists, and others who've exercised at various levels of health. I have known people who were well over 100 pounds overweight who did the Couch to 5K program after being cleared by a doctor with no ill effects on knees, etc. You just have to find something that works for you and challenges your body.
