Hi SHAGGYD -- you've found a great place for help in achieving your goals! Spark People has loads of information and tools, as well as a very supportive community. The nutrition tracker gives you a chance to see where you're getting off track with your eating, and by entering what you're planning to eat before you actually do so you can adjust the amounts and/or items so that you stay within the recommended calorie count and balance of nutrients. Be sure to check out the articles under the "healthy lifestyle" tab above, and there are LOTS of healthy recipes to be found at sparkrecipes.com. Quite a few people find the site a little confusing to navigate at first, so don't be afraid to ask questions if you need some help -- we are here for you!
