Default Too much sodium

So my weight hasn't really budged this week which I know can be for many reasons but I realized when I was looking at my food tracker that although I've been in my calorie range, my sodium has been anywhere from 3000mg to over 4000mg. Also I've only been drinking like a 24 oz of H20.
I'm thinking I might be retaining water. Has anyone experienced this? Am I eating way too much sodium?

I've found when it comes to sodium and water retention that I don't seem to have any noticeable effects unless I go over 5,000 to 6,000mg in a day... now granted my diet is low carb and I only drink water along with some coffee and perhaps some tea on occasion... and I get a fair amount of exercise as well... and I don't have high blood pressure, or any underlying heart or kidney issues because then of course that's a completely different story when it comes to sodium in your diet...

But I know some people are a lot more sensitive to sodium and it really does seem to cause some water retention issues... I guess the only thing I would suggest is to really consciously cut back for a few days and see if it helps the scale start moving again...
