Calcium Goal & an old dress

Wednesday, July 11, 2007

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!

    Awesome! Kudos! Yeah remember to measure as well as weigh.. and reflecting on things.. it's a great motivator and a more realistic view of how things are progressing. I find so much to be grateful for.. and when I take stock like that I think each day is a success with lots of mini successes built in.. anyway way to go on the old dress!

    Way to go Joan with the calcium! I have that problem too. I thought I was getting enough until I started tracking here at Sparks. I try get it by food, but usually resort to a supplement too. Thanks for your post on my possible moving to NC.

    Good luck to you!
