comment How can an overweight engineer get back in shape?
You already got lots of info (BackInShapeBuddy's answer is really good) but just as a motivation story: my dad is in his early 50's and was over 70 pounds over weight. For his health sake he started eating less and healthier, and excercising, mainly jogging. He started slow but he can now run 10k+ and is now swimming to (jobs 5k and then goes and swims ~1.5k). He is better than ever (though people sometimes think he lost weight due to some illness, it really is an impressive change). He lost all this weight in a bit over a year. So yes, you can get in shape, in time and with effort
