In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

I use the nutrition tracker to help me keep track of sodium. It was slow going at first until I got a good list of favorites going. It really helps to see where I can make small changes that have helped over time. I am on 1 medication a day and my blood pressure started at 220/120. It is now down to normal. I am looking forward to the day I can get off of the medication.

I am a 57 year old woman and weights 323 lbs. I have been trying to lose weight since I was in my teens. In 2005 I was in Katrina then relocated to Chicago. That is when I found out that I have Diabetes, High Blood Pressure which have worried me since. I recently relocated to Arizonia where I now have found out that my kidneys is not doing too well and I am now on a low sodium diet of less than 2,000mgs a day. I have started eating right or trying but it is hard to do at times. I have been looking for help every where. All they talk about is just calories but I something that will help me in my sodium intake as well. I just was on the internet and saw this article about this lady using your site lost a lot of weight. I am also suffering from arthritis in my shoulders, knees, right hip which I hate I am always in pain everyday. I really need help and support so I achieve my goal of losing at least most of this weight and become healthy. I think this site might be just what I need.
