Hi there. Good for you for making a commitment to follow the meal plans and the nutrition tracker. I am sure that will make a tremendous difference in your progress!
I have never used the meal plans that sparkpeople provide. I have a lot of allergies and food preferences/likes and dislikes, so I find it much easier to eat my food that I usually make, and track it after the fact. Over time I have come to know how much I can eat at one time, and still remain within my calorie, fat, protein, carb levels.
You may find it easier to do that as well.
Alternately, if your husband is joining sparkpeople as well, he can set up his own page as well, and begin using the trackers the same way. Presuming your dh is bigger and stronger than you, he will need a higher amount of calories, protein, carbs, etc. than you (bigger people have higher nutritional needs as they burn more calories, and also, the more muscle mass you have, the more you burn as well).
As Sam says, if you want specific nutrition questions answered, it is a good idea to post to the main message boards. The experts on the site can then answer.

The smallest good deed is better than the grandest intention.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
