The calcium goal is definitely attainable with good planning. Breakfast is easy, because it nearly always includes cereal with either milk or plain nonfat yogurt. I added 8 oz. of skim milk to lunch and with the peaches coming in now, I'm making a 'peach shake' consisting of yogurt, a peach a little bit of imitation vanilla nut flavoring (1/2 teaspoon?) and 3 ice cubes in a blender. It's very tasty. That gets me real close to the bottom of the calcium range, and with other foods that have small amounts, I've done it. I have an 8 day streak going.
Now the old dress. It fits. It's a turquoise blue shirt waist and I've got the coordinating shoes to go with it. (Odd for me to write this, 'cause I'm definitely not a fashionista!) So I wore it to church on Sunday. I've worn it to church many times before, albeit several years ago. Well you might have thought it was brand new from the reaction I got. It wasn't so much the dress folks were reacting to but the obvious weight loss. What a lark!
So even though the scale isn't moving much, the inches are dropping and I'm extremely entertained by the reaction!
