I've been fighting allergies, sinus, whatever, for a few days now. Decided to pick up something to manage symptoms. Just grabbed one that promised relief from the symptoms that were irritating. Didn't feel like going to my weight loss group but stepped on scales just for a check. Weight up 3#. On my way past medicine box spotted "each tablet 476 mg of sodium". Since the doses involve 2 tablets every 4-5 hours, I had ingested tremendous amounts of sodium, no wonder scales were up. Lesson learned. Even have to check ingredient lists on OTC cold remedies. I have to admit that I'm feeling better, but the weight gain was quite a shock. Working to get it off by next Thursday.
Like the slogan that I saw on SP earlier today. Make one healthy choice. Then make another.
