Yes you can sure loose weight that too as much as 5 kg/month with a right combination of exercise & diet modifications. In your exercise regimen you need to add resistance training & flexibility exercise in combination to walking (cardio training). My advice is 20 minutes of push ups, sit up+ 20 minutes of brisk walking/jogging + 10 minutes of Yoga as flexibility exercise should suffice you. Additionally do some diet modification in form of adding high fibre diet like green vegetables, fruits & cutting down on high fat diet. Lastly you can consult your doctor about taking a drug Metformin which is helpful for reducing weight as well as for your PCOS. Good luck
