    Good goals - you mention sodium and one item under it is to eat foods that are higher in sodium - were you meaning you want to get more sodium or to eat less sodium - for me due to my weight and water retention I have to eat lower sodium.

    I like that you are setting goals for snacks. As you know I am not having snacks at all - all my food has to be eaten at meal time - and since November when I made this change I have found because I don't purchase soda, chips, candy I have been able to put that money towards frozen vegetables and I was surprised just how much I saved from not purchasing any of those foods. Makes a big different to my food bill.

    You are doing great Laura am proud of you
