My mom takes supplemental calcium every day under her doctor's orders. She is in menopause and started around 7 years ago. She (unlike me LOL) has a small slight frame and her doctor told her she was a prime candidate. She does weight bearing exercise about 3-4 times a week and does a lot of gardening, etc. I on the other hand have been advised that I am probably at the least risk for it (there goes the heredity/genetic thing out the window). I have a large frame (take after my dad), have lifted weights (not right now unless my 22 pounder counts LOL) and get the correct amoutn of calcium pretty much daily. I guess there is one reason to be thankful that I'm on the "bigger" side than the "smaller" side.
Thankfully I don't have to push the milk on my 3 year old, she loves it. Hope that continues.

runs this space station and bake shop down near Boomtown. She told
me that human beings are flawed individuals. The cosmic bakers
took us out of the oven a little too early. And that's the
reason we're as crazy as we are and I believe it." Jimmy Buffet, Fruitcakes, 1994
