I am now 78 years young. Just discovered that the culprit that has not allowed me to lose weight all these years was salt! I was eating over 5 times more salt than I should be for my age and heart. I cut back a few days ago, and the weight is dropping even though I am eating as much or more food than before. I had a couple heart episodes lately and decided to check out to see what could be causing it - turns out my body and heart were objecting to all the salt. Now that I've cut way back - under the recommended amount, I feel better than ever and know that I can finally make the weight loss happen. I want to stat exercising once I am under 300 lbs. Hopefully that will happen by the end of the month. Yay!!

My goals are to lose 160 lbs., and travel. I also like to usher in the theater, but need to be able to move.

My Program:
Keeping calories around 1400-1500/day. I am signed up at the local YMCA but haven't done much exercising due to heart issues. I also started using Faster EFT (Energy Freedom Technique) to help rid myself of negative issues that were causing me to overeat, etc. Works like a charm!! I can already feel a difference

    Hi! Just noticed on your comment on the Abraham group that you were into FasterEFT. Are you still tapping on yourself? or working with a practitioner? I am a practitioner, though my client list is short at the moment. I have only met one other person into FasterEFT on SparkPeople. Good luck in everything!

    Thank you for the advice about sodium free substitutes. My problem is more to many processed foods, I think.
    I work in a deli and try to eat a chefs salad every day with
    the ham and turkey, no cheese. Maybe I need to stop the meat part.
