Over the last couple of years, I have steadily let my laziness and eating habits get the best of me (along with the fact that I tend to gain sympathy weight when my wife is pregnant... 2nd kid coming in September). My weight has ballooned up to 255 from my rather comfortable 220ish that I had been previously. (FYI I am 6'4")

In an effort to take back my self respect and be able to play games with my son without getting winded, I decided that I am going to start working out and eating right again. I would love to get your kids feedback on this plan to see how I can improve it (or if I am doing too much or eating too little).

My diet will be a high protein, low carb, low calorie diet consisting of mainly chicken, eggs, green veggies and protein shakes. I have done it before with success and know that my daily intake is 1200 calories, 160g protein, 12g of carbs. I also take dietary fiber to keep me regular along with plenty of water to keep me hydrated.

My workouts will consist of a quick morning workout (2 mile run and some calisthenics-based resistance training) and the evening workout will be mainly the P90X regimen. I have done this combination previously as well with success, but would love to hear your thoughts before I dive back into it.

Blast away.
You'll definitely lose a hell of a lot of weight on that. I'm a little dubious on the 1200 calories a day, because that's a really small amount, especially for a guy of your size. If you can do it, though, more power to you.

I'm sure others may suggest a better routine than p90x, but I think that it will suffice for your goals. I will say that there are more efficient (time wise) workouts than p90x that will give you most of the same benefits.
