Should I Improve?

As I was looking online the other day at all of the things that people seem to consider as 'improvements' to themselves, I came across one I wasn't familiar with before. I've seen plenty of diet and exercise plans along the way, as well as lots of creams and vitamins intended to keep us younger for longer. One I hadn't heard before was a hgh supplement. Supposedly taking human growth hormones can reverse aging. Huh.

Sure, I'm as resistant as a lot of people when it comes to the idea of my skin wrinkling and losing its elasticity. And don't get me started on the aches and pains that seem to be creeping up as my body gets more worn out from carrying itself around. But reverse aging? I've earned my wrinkles, age spots and even a gray hair or two. I might try something to avoid the aches and pains, but I don't want an artificial body. I'm used to the one I've got.

What do you do to fight aging? Would you rather wear your age with pride (okay, to an extent, anyway), or leave this world looking like an airbrushed version of other friends your age? (Gee, hard to tell where I stand, eh?)

I like to feel good. Fish Oil, Flaxseed Oil, Calcium and Vitamin D3. I've used Oil of Olay with sunscreen for years and people are always saying how young my skin looks. My suggestion - keep it simple and affordable - otherwise, you won't keep it up.
