Clyde-friendly saddles?

I go about 225 and am not in real bad shape, but I recently picked up a new CX bike and the saddle is killing me. I've always ridden a mountain bike, so in part, I'm not used to the skinny little road saddles. Plus, I didn't used to be 225 lbs. Any suggestions on a saddle designed for those of us who can't seem to adapt to the same saddles that the 125 lb. guys use? I should not that I'm not looking to break the bank here, nor am I looking to ride on a huge and heavy cruiser bike gel saddle either. any help would be appreciated.
