It truly does make a difference. Everyone is so nice and very motivating. I have found that the articles are very informative and reading lots of blogs helps too, so that we don't feel so alone on this journey to a better life. I am also on a sodium restricted plan and I know it can be frustrating but hang in there and we will help you whenever you need it.
That is what sparkpeople is all about.

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.
