Wider is more comfy. Certainly, sleek racing saddles don't look comfortable but wider seats create more friction and chafing when you're doing lots of pedalling (say on the road, or in a race). In general, the more you ride and pedal, the thinner and less obtrusive a saddle should be.
Even more, can a heavy person ride a bike? If you are planning to start cycling, bear in mind that most bikes are designed for people who weigh less than 220 pounds. The warranties on many bikes are actually voided if the rider is too heavy. If you are significantly heavier than 220 pounds, think about getting a bike designed for heavier people.
However that may be, how do I make my bike seat not hurt?
Stand on the pedals once in a while (or at least shift your position on the seat).
Adjust the tilt of your saddle.
3 Grease Up.
Try a different style underwear.
Adjust your bike.
Get a pair of real bike shorts (and ditch the underwear altogether)
Lose weight... Eat less, ride more.
Change your saddle.
Where should you sit on a bike saddle?
Sit as far back as possible on the widest part of the saddle. Tilt the front of the saddle down slightly. Optimize geometry (SQlab recommends Body Scanning CRM)

Cycling one hour a day for weight loss is an excellent way to boost weight loss. A 180-pound individual cycling for an hour at a moderate intensity burns about 650 calories. If you ride six days a week for a year, you will burn about 202,800 calories, which translates to about 58 pounds of body fat!
It is easier to pass on a bowl of ice cream than to work out. However, even if you made no changes to your usual food plan, riding an exercise bike just 30 minutes five times a week would help you drop one to two pounds a month. If you eat a healthy diet and exercise, you can expect to lose even more.
