Consistent blisters are typically caused by either an improper fitting shoe (too loose or too tight) or lots of sweat (a drenched sock will allow your foot to slide causing blisters.)
Take the above advice and go to a running store. The people working there are runners and have seen just about every foot there is. They can also show you different ways to lace your shoes to prevent blisters.
If you just have excess sweat there are socks that will help you deal with this as well.
Typically, unless I'm going 10+ miles, I don't wear socks at all. Little vaseline in the right places, lace up the shoes and I'm running.
Congrats on the weight loss.
