So, I've decided to get serious about the business of losing - reset my SparkPeople account and now have a diet plan that I am going to stick with. My biggest problem is thinking that I don't have the time to work out during the work week, having to enter all of my food and not planning ahead.

My solution? Changing the menus provided for MySparkDiet, but still keeping the suggested calories and proportions, entering my recipes into the system before making and eating them, and ...

To your husband's sore calf: why is it that he only can exercise at 10% incline? Of course It will get sore (try it for just 10 minutes).
While I was on the other side of 200lbs I also used the incline feature to get tired because I wanted to avoid running and injury, but 5% incline at 7 km/h speed was enough then. At 10% incline he can even get injured. I think he should not do it.
45 minutes of walking 5 times a week should be plenty of cardio for him, he could start strength training as well.
Healthy diet is the most part of weight loss.
