    Thats a potentially great idea! A little selfish but giving at the same time... worth a try if you can handle the needle

    I'm hazarding a guess that you can't sleep so random thoughts are popping into your head?!

    Oh and Happy New Year!

    There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.

    Being on this diet is like being on a wagon that goes at speed then slows down, but it may even stop or go in reverse for a short time, so dont get off the wagon! If you get off, get thrown off, or lose your place, run after it! If that doesn't work, get the next immediate wagon. Fight to stay on the wagon it will take you to your destination

    You may but they only take a pint so you'll lose whatever a pint of blood is

    Have you weight a pint of water to see how much it weighs just out of interest.

    But this will only work every 16 weeks, by which time you'll have other ideas for a 'quick fix' on WI day.

    BTW have you weighed yourself with a full bladder and then with an empty one, you can't believe how much you can lose by just going to the loo.

    I believe that 1L of water weighs 1Kg, that's how they set it..
    but even that is subject to fluctuation with whatever minerals are disolved into it and temp and air pressure etc

    however, the old saying is true and blood is thicker than water so a pint of blood is going to weigh more than a pint of water surely?

    it's never a pint with me either, I bleed fast for some reason and usually start filling the overflow bag before they get back round to check on me..

    I used to donate until about 6 years ago when work etc made it hard to get to the donations on time ( and if I'm honest then I was also a little affraid that I'd break those flimsy fold up tables that they use.. )

    I thought you could still go but there's a waiting period to make sure you didn't get anything from the transfused blood?

    There have been quite a few changes regarding blood donation recently & I think claracluck1981 is right if you've received blood you can no longer donate.

    ah, ok.. it's been a while since I donated..
    can't see why though, surely they can screen for whatever for those that tick the box?

    what if you don't know you've had a transfusion?
    you might have had one as a baby and not remember.

    I was born yellow ( jaundiced i think it's called ) but I have no idea why or what was done to rectify it..

    Well I'd have thought when you donate before it's passed on they'd do all the relevant checks, so if you have rec'd blood in the past it would be ok.

    If you remember it used to be if you'd rec'd blood outside the UK.

    I found this info on the National Blood Service website about people who've had a transfusion since 1980 not being allowed to donate:

    This step was implemented by all four of the UK Blood Services on 2nd August 2004. It is a further precautionary measure against the possible risk of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (vCJD) being transmitted by blood and blood products.

    vCJD is thought to be the consequence of eating contaminated beef, related to BSE (or mad cow disease) in UK cattle after 1980. Fortunately, vCJD is very rare. But, there is evidence that vCJD may be transmitted from an infected blood donor to the patient, via transfusion.

    Doubt it, think of all the nice biscuits and eat natural bars they offer afterwards!!!

    They never want my blood, my iron is always too low, but they still give me biscuits

    well that was an embarasing moment..
    I went earlier and filled in all the forms and spent 20 mins waiting to be called, they got me in a little booth to ask questions and test for iron etc and turns out that I'm too heavy for the tables so I couldn't donate..
