Welcome! Try not to let it get you down & remember - all things in moderation. If you make yourself think you CAN'T have something, you will want it even more. Have a small handful or put some chips in a bowl - and that's ALL you can have!

Good luck to you!

Gord - I read about the changes you were making to your diet. They sounded great. Reducing salt is really important - so making great choices, you will do well...................Have a great week.
