Thanks for being our trusty leader. Sorry to hear about your wife. That does throw us all for a loop .. when a family member has to be hospitalized. Even hospital cafeteria foods have higher levels of sodium then you would ever put in your own food. Keep watching what you eat.. stay away from pizza?? (THAT is my downfall lately.)

"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

It does sound like you have had it rough. Your wife and I have something in common--daaycare provider. I technically have two children I take care of (for money anyway). I have three grandchildren that are here quite often, but that's a long story. You can get back on track and you will.

Tough couple of months, with my wife getting to spend 9 days in intensive care with blood clots in her intestines, which in the aftermath cause her to have to give up her day care business as she could not lift kids for quite a while. But she was fortunate to get a FT job quite quickly right around the time she was cleared to work, and just as the rest of our $$$ was about dried up. So she is getting better and better, and things seem to be stabilizing.

Being the stress eater that I am, I find myself fortunate that I did not gain any weight. My BP spiked on me, as I kind of neglected to watch the sodium. My bottom number was what my top number should be, so had to go back on one of my meds.

But not feeling real motivated to track and all that, but trying to be a bit more conscious of what I consume, though I pigged out on some papa johns. If I have 0 sodium the next 10 days, the sodium I consumed tonight will average out to a manageable level. I thought about "OK, Monday I'll start it all again," then realized that Thanksgiving is next week, so maybe I'll start tracking afterwards.

Yes, I know I could just start, then enjoy Thanksgiving and take moderate portions and all of that, but I'm not wired that way.

I tried to pop in when I could, but guess I had missed enough to notice that I am the sole leader again. Not surprised. But it'll get me motivated to want to visit the page more often; thus log in and use spark again. But glad to see many of you involved.

Anyway, Thanksgiving ushers in the holiday season, but I hope we can all enjoy a low sodium season
