* CONTAINS EGG** For the UpCalD – I’m not recommending this product in the “6 scoops” version. While people argue how much calcium citrate can or cannot be absorbed in one sitting, ( we believe it to be 500mg per serving) one has to wonder where any excess GOES in the body. If we did 6 scoops of this (1500mg calcium and 1200IU D) several times a day, WHERE will that extra 1000mg GO each time? We don’t know, so we don’t recommend it.

*** We recommend a combination of 2 scoops of UpCal D with 4 scoops of ProCel, which delivers 30g protein, 500 mg calcium citrate and 400 IU D, which is a great combination.

Lingerie Size and Fit

Bra size and fit Figure 1 Bra sizes are made up of two components
(always measure while wearing your own bra):
An even number that represents the back size(32, 34, 36, etc.)

determined by the size of the torso. (see Figure 1, line A)

A letter that indicates the cup size (A, B, C, etc.) determined by

the size of the breast itself. (see Figure 1, line B)

To determine the back size
(torso measurement):
Have someone stand at your side and bring a tape measure

snugly around your ribcage, directly under the breast (see A in

figure above).

Add 5 to the measurement (i.e. if “A is 29”, the back size is 34)
After 33 inches, only add 3 inches to the back measurement

(i.e. if “A is 35”, the back size is 38)

Verify the back size:
Measure around the top of your breasts (the line above B in

the figure above). This measurement should equal your

back size

calculation. For example if you measured 29 inches around

your ribcage, the calculation is 29 + 5 = 34. The measurement

above

your breasts should equal 34.
Hints:

  1. If the back size comes out to an uneven number, try
  2.  the next size up.
  3. If you are in-between sizes or you are having difficulty
  4. finding the correct fit, then if you go up in cup size come
  5.  down in
  6. band size or if you go up in band size come down in cup
  7.  size. For example, if you are wearing a 42D, but it is a
  8. little too
  9.  snug around the band, then you would move up to a 44C.

To determine the cup size (breast measurement):
Have someone stand by your side and bring a tape measure

loosely around the fullest part of the bust (see B in figure above).

Subtract the back size from this measurement (ie. if “B” is 37″ and

the back size (“A” +5) was 34, the difference is 3″). This difference

determines the cup size (see chart below).

The chart below should be used as a guide only. Sizes actually vary

slightly from one manufacturer to the next. Goddess, Fantasie

and Freya are the most generous in the cups.

For Fantasie, Freya only.
Your calculations will be a little different. First, measure the back

size as described above, if it is an even number add 4 to

get your

back size (32+4 = 36 backsize), if it is an odd number add 5 to

get your back size (29+5 = 34 backsize). Second, measure

the

fullest part of the bust as described above. When you have all

three numbers (first measurement, backsize calculation, and

bust measurement) subtract the first measurement (not the

backsize but the actual measurement) from the bust measurement

to get

your difference. For example if you measure 29 inches under the

bust, you have a 34 inch backsize. If you then measure

38 inches

around the fullest part of the bust, you have a 9 inch difference (38-29=9). Use the 9 inch difference to determine your cup

size below.

For a Perfect Panty Fit

  • Panty size should be determined by the size of the hips.
  • Measure the hips with a tape measure around the fullest part.
  • Then measure the waist.
  • The following chart shows the average relationship between
  • waist/hip measurements and panty size. Although the usual
  •  determining factor is the hip size, the waist measurement
  • should also be considered.

The Bottom Line

The greatest mystery of the female anatomy shows up in fitting

bottoms.

Waist, Hip, and Stride proportions are as unpredictable as women

themselves. You can use this chart as a rough guideline but the

easiest way is to follow your slack size.

Stride

You’ve probably dealt all of your life with pants that are

too long or too

short in the waist.

Because shapewear stretches…try…

  • If you are long – go up a size.
  • If you are short – go down a size.

  — By Rebecca Pratt

 

You’re a parent, school volunteer, Little League coach, and trusted assistant to your boss. You’ve been up since 6 a.m., made breakfast, packed lunches, cleaned the house, chauffeured the neighborhood kids, helped with homework, read bedtime stories, and finished extra work from the office.  It’s 11:30.  You’re exhausted.  And, in about six-and-a-half hours you’ll begin the whole 24-hour cycle…again.  

If you find yourself saying ‘Stop the merry-go-round, I want to get off!’ you’re not alone. Most of us—especially women, but men too (hey, there are reasons that men die younger than women)—have at some time found ourselves at the bottom of the heap when it comes to taking care of our needs. 

The problem with that is that if we don’t take care of ourselves, sooner or later we won’t be of much use to anyone else—or to ourselves. Just as the airline attendant tells you to put on your own oxygen mask in an emergency before helping a child with theirs, you must take care of your own basic needs before you can attend to the needs of others. What’s more, being busy is not necessarily the same as being productive with meaningful activity. (Do the workaholics you know really accomplish that much more in proportion to the time they invest?) 

 

 

If “putting yourself first” (a common admonition) sounds too selfish or too hard, try something simpler: put yourself on an equal footing with those you love and tend to. Do you insist that they get enough sleep? Start making that a priority for yourself too. Do you give them time for fun and socializing with friends? Then you do the same! Remember Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs: human beings must meet their basic needs before they can move on to higher-level goals. 

Since most of us already know that we should take care of ourselves—but often have trouble figuring out how to do it, here are some guidelines for getting there:

  • Preserve your physical health with adequate sleep, exercise, and nutrition.
  • Value your emotional health as much as the physical, with a support system of friends and a willingness to laugh—especially at yourself.
  • Schedule fun activities on a regular basis—it’s just as important to plan pleasure as it is to plan work.
  • Identify “busy behaviors” (or people) that drain your time and energy but aren’t really important, then dump ‘em, or at least minimize their hold on you.
  • Kill two birds with one stone, combining family time with exercise, for example, which benefits everyone involved.
  • Try to look at the problems in your life with new eyes to find solutions. If you’re a new mom, for instance, see if you can trade childcare with another new mom to get some time for yourself.
  • Learn to say “No!” Your “yes” is valuable and should not be automatic. Instead, reserve it for the things that are most important to you.
  • Don’t try to change every problem area in your life all at once. Start with one or two items, then expand as you get things under control.

Your life should be like a checking account, balancing out on a regular basis so that you always have assets to draw upon. By making even small deposits—taking care of yourself with a 10-minute walk or a nutritious meal—you’ll be amazed at the interest you’ll reap.

Random Acts of Kindness

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word,
a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring,
all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
— Dr. Leo Buscaglia

Be Worthy of Imitation

You must be careful how you walk and where you go, for there are those following you who will set their feet where yours are set.

– Robert E. Lee, Civil War General

Persevere

All:

I was reading this and it was particularly inspirational to me today
so I thought that I’d share it with everyone. I’ve been struggling
with my eating for 2 days now so, I really like the thoughts behind
this message. NEVER GIVE UP!!!

Persevere.

Some days you wake up feeling tired or distracted. You just
don’t have the time or energy to follow your WLS regimen at
that moment. So, you skip breakfast, or eat that slice of cold
pizza that you righteously avoided the night before. Days of
discouragement shouldn’t surprise you. They are reminders that
food will always be complicated — either a comfort or a
distraction.

The key to real change is perseverance. When you take a misstep,
for whatever reason, know that you will continue to persevere
in your WLS recovery. You will start over at the next meal — you
will overcome the temptation next time. That is how you’ll succeed.
Being perfect just isn’t going to happen. So persevere.

Action for the day: No matter where you are in your recovery,
today you will persevere. Start over every time you stray from
your plan. Start over as often as necessary.
