Thanks for the shout-out. I'm still obese, but I suppose all of those other things are true. And my physique has improved substantially, going from that of a competitive processed cheese eater to a body that is the envy of dive bar bouncers across central Maine.
Regarding the OP's routine - I don't think it matters all that much... yet. I didn't know anything about "conventional" wisdom when I started lifting, and I ended up on a 3 day/week full body routine that, had I posted it in the beginner section, would surely have been met with plenty of people telling me to do starting strength or 5/3/1.
Would I be some combination of leaner and stronger had I gone with conventional wisdom? Maybe, maybe not. Maybe I would have hurt my fat ass squatting 3 days/week as a beginner. Maybe I would have burned out and quit. Maybe I'd be benching 400 by now. No way to know.
More important than any of those "what-if" scenarios is the fact that I found a style of lifting that I learned to really enjoy. I've made lifting seriously and sensibly a part of my life.
I would encourage you to do the same, OP. If you believe in this program and want to run it, well, run the shit out of it and see where it gets you. Become a person who lifts weights! You have decades ahead of you that you can spend running 5/3/1, Sheiko, Westside, Eastside, Southside, some other shit you made up on your own, or just go back to the warm bliss of being fat, lazy and not giving a fuck.
The more time you spend under the bar the better-equipped you will be to make these choices on your own.
Good luck, and never, ever quit.
