I agree whole-heartedly with KLSMOMMY.
Tracking your intake is going to be your eye-opener and your saving grace. Enter EVERYTHING you eat (even if you eat, say, an entire pint of ice cream in one sitting...not that I've ever DONE that, but you know...) ;-) you need to record it so you recognize where you are and how you can change your eating habits.
Remember there is an area where you can enter your own recipes to determine the nutrient content - it's under "Healthy Lifestyle" then "Sparkrecipes.com." I've found this especially helpful as I make chili, or recipes from a friend or from an old cookbook, etc.
There is also a free app for SparkPeople for your iPhone if you have one, so you can track your food while you're on the go.
