I also work on computers all day. I have 6 kids to chase around though! I was always tired as well. Make sure you get your thyroid checked. Mine was at 2.7...I did a lot of research and took a supplement to get my metabolism in gear. Now, I have a whole lot more energy than I used to and I don't even take the supplement anymore.
I had a similar background (work in computers), busy parent (13 and 5 year old now), and used to be tired all the time. Once I lost the weight, my energy levels totally changed and I had energy to spare. It also helped with my sleep apnea (it got rid of it) and which also made a world of difference. At first, the changes weren't obvious but as time went by I could totally see the difference.
You can do this too. You'll be at your goal weight before you know it it!

Hello. I guess I am supposed to Introduce myself here. My name is John and I am 39 years old and, 100 lbs overweight. I work at a desk job staring at a computer all day and the only exercise I get is chasing my kids around the house (Ages 17, 3, and 1 month). I find that I am always tired and my friends say that if I lost some weight I wouldn't be so tired all the time. Also, I want to try and get in shape for my 10th wedding anniversary (Nov 2011). Hmm, what else to say? I guess that's all for now. I hope to make some new friends and find the encouragement to stay on track and finally take off the weight (been trying for over 5 years no with no luck). Wish me luck!
