Join a team! There are tons and tons of teams on here who can help keep you motivated! And people aren't here to hurt you, only to help. It can be hard to get others on the bandwagon of support if they're not used to it.
I have a 19 month old, and I wish I could say you'd get more time to yourself, but you really don't, haha. I also have a desk job. So what do I do? I keep a 1/4 cup, 1 tablespoon, and 1/2 tablespoon measuring cups/spoons in my desk drawer. I measure everything I eat that isn't prepackaged (and if it is, I put it in my tracker). Then at lunch, I go for a walk. We don't have a gym like some companies, so I head to the neighborhood behind the office and walk. It's a great way to destress, get away from the office, AND get some healthy exercise in. (I also do squats in the bathroom. Ssshh, don't tell!)
Start small. Track everything you eat so you know where you are. Then make small changes: a freggie at every meal, or not going back for a second helping, or getting your 8 cups of water in before you have any other beverages. Make it sustainable, and you'll rock this!
