Jan, are you using the nutrition page? I track my calories, sodium and other things on there, it sure helps keep me honest. I've been keeping my sodium around 1000mg a day, it's not that hard once you get used to it. I make most of our meals from scratch, even my bread, that is why I can keep it low.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil. 4:13

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

My name is Jan, I live on the coast of Northern CA, I have Hypertension, have had it for years, it has started to create some other problems, like Chronic Kidney Disease. My kidney doctor also treats hypertension and has gotten my numbers down to almost normal, he told me to try the DASH diet so that I would cut way back on the sodium. I started that diet today and did real well, hope I can keep it up. I found this team and hope it helps me stay on the right track.
May your day be filled with blessings, Like the sun that lights the sky, And may you always have the courage, To Spread your Wings and Fly.
