I would definitely suggest buying and wearing a helmet, if you haven't already. But I think you're right that it's better to wait on the rest of the stuff if you're planning to continue losing weight.

If you're worried about your tailbone- and that's a legit concern- there are pads that are less bulky than hockey pants that can help. This is one (ignore that they're marketed to figure skaters, the company is really missing the boat there- they're useful to any beginner, particularly adults):

Another possibility would be to get a cheap pair of used hockey pants in your current size and get your own new pair when you're closer to your goal weight. Just take a good look at them to be sure the padding is still in decent shape; used adult hockey stuff has sometimes really been "worn to death" since adults don't outgrow stuff.

Congrats on the weight loss!
