Lovemylife--I have tried some "magic pills" in my lifetime and my husband always points out that they work with a "sensible diet and excercise program"
MrsJim--I try to give blood (I'm O+) at least 2x a year if my iron count is high enough. They also check blood pressure. The thing I hate about having my blood pressure taken is just because I am over 200 lbs they assume I have high blood pressure. I take after my Dad who has low blood pressure. My "normal" blood pressure is 100 over 60. I did have some trouble with it when it went up to 145 over 85 which the doctors didn't seem to bothered by since it is in the "normal" for most people range. Hubby pointed out maybe I should cut back on the diet pills and caffiene and it went back down.
