too much sodium intake equals weight gain

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

I have learned by tracking once again that I am taking in too much sodium so I need to change how I make meals. No more sodium overdose. I am almost done with mom's shawl on less than half of the last skein than I am done. Will post a pic when completed.

    Your shawl pics are so pretty. I've made a couple of simple ones. My favorite is a fuzzy fuchsia with bits of cloth woven into the yarn. You can imagine how tough it was to work on. I should post a pic of my production.

    I watch the salt, but dh drives me crazy by adding salt at the table before he even tastes the food. He refuses to believe salt could be bad for him. Oh well, such is life. He has always been thin so I can't play the weight card on this with him.

    You are so right about that. Funny what you learn to pay attention to, huh? I too have issues with to much sodium. Wish you all the best!!

    I never realized how much sodium I ate until I started tracking. I am also watching my salt intake.

    It takes me days to a week to lose the water weight that comes from excess sodium in one meal. You'd think I'd have learned the lesson by now. Be sure to o.d. on your water. emoticon

    You are on the right track with that plan to cut down on salt intake.

I look forward to seeing the shawl that you have made for your mother.

God bless!

    not sure how many OTC meds you take or meds period but did you know that some have a full days worth of sodium intake, before you've eaten a thing? Check to see if you take anything OTC or any meds you maybe taking.....
