Charting, cycles, meds, ad nauseum

I know I don't post here much (if at all. I'm still getting the hang of this down) but I would like, if I may, to get a little feedback. I've been diagnosed with PCOS since April of 2000 when I had my 4th miscarriage. Right now I am on Glucophage XR (1500mg a day) (Just got changed to regular Glucophage 1700mg because I wasn't digesting the pills) and Avandia (8mg a day). I am also taking Vitex (Chaste Berry), Evening Primrose Oil (full moon to new moon) and Flax Seed Oil (new moon to full moon). I have been thinking of adding Magnesium to my regimen. I am also about to start on the South Beach Diet. I weigh 283lbs and am 5'3" tall. I would like to get down to around 180lbs. I don't get much exercise as most of my time is spent sitting in front of this computer (My work). I just recently started charting my cycle because I got my first moon (period) in around 4 months on Xmas Eve. My hubby and I have been ttc for 9 1/2 yrs and as I said before, we've been through 4 miscarriages (possibly more). I've never charted before and am using FertilityFriend.com. I have a basal thermometer and as soon as we can save up enough money I plan on getting a Clear Plan Fertility Monitor. So, does anyone have any advice, comments, etc for me? (BTW, I also have acute asthma {COPD} and severe allergies {to cats which I have 4 of and they are my little babies}).
