Richedcook - Making a change

I'm a 40 year old father of two. I work 50-60 hours a week as a salaried retail manager at a store 30 minutes from home. I don't see my kids enough as it is, and have very little energy when I am home. I am right about 280 lbs, and want to lose 100 lbs. I know it will be a long, hard fight. My wife takes care of the kids, and loves me, but doesn't want to work out, and often gets upset when I make time for such things. (because I'm not home enough in the first place). With this in mind ...

With this in mind my last two attempts to lose weight, both of which involved a gym membership (and multiple months of dedication) just blew up at some point and I gave up. I have to make time for myself without taking time from my family. I want my kids to have a healthier dad. I want to stop being ashamed of my weight. I've also got to get my blood pressure under control before it kills me.
