Yet another Noob

Howdy all. I am just starting into bikes. Or really just thinking about starting into bike. Really don't know a whole lot about them yet but learning fast. I am 59 as of next week and need something to get me back in shape and fight the aging monster. I have lost 20 lbs but really need to loose another 90 to 100. 5' 11" and 270lbs. I am looking to purchase I think a comfort or hybrid bike. Will be mostly riding on road and may begin commuting after a while. Commute 15 miles. Road bikes are nice and fast but my body says I can't really lean over enough to ride one for now, Tummy in the way. I am a maintenance electrician at a factory and ride a three wheel bike around the factory with my 30 lbs of tools in the basket. Anyway enough about be hope to learn alot here in the forum.
