I don't want to cross the line of "marital advice", but maybe see if you can get your wife to help you with a 7pt pinch test. A single point is only telling you how much BF you're carrying in your abdomen. I happen to carry more there than anywhere else, so I would read high if I did a single measurement there, and low if I did a single elsewhere.

Those are strong lifts, looks like this log is gonna be full of win! Don't forget to find a form of cardio you enjoy to bump the fat loss along, and try not to push past your personal limits on diet right away. Better to gradually improve your diet than to try jumping in too fast and cheating more than you intend to.

Glad to have you on board, looking forward to seeing some great things!

Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:

Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.

Top Gym lifts:
Squat: 415lbs
Deads: 440lbs
Bench: 315lbs
