Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

At your weight, you should be fine on any frame, as long as it isn't an ultralightweight racing frame....
Ti is great, as is Aluminum. The only thing I have against Carbon Fiber is one crash that might only scratch up a metal frame could destroy a CF frame, or create hidden damage that can cause failure at a critical time (like when you are bombing down a hill!).
My personal preference is lugged steel, preferably Columbus or 531 and above alloy!
