Snicker. The fact that I never visit a doctor (because my health in general is good, I don't need to) knocked my estimated live-to age back from 100 to 99...

Yeah, that one year's gonna cost you,

all right...otoh, the birthday celebration for 100 is worth having. *G*

Re: Yeah, that one year's gonna cost you,

Might, if I really bothered celebrating another trip around the sun.

Personally, though, I'd have thought that not having to visit the doctor should add another couple of years. The inference (oops, that should be implication! Silly me!) seemed to be that you should have annual (at least) checks even if you were perfectly healthy. Don't see the point - only hypochondriacs visit the doctor for no reason. (Or is that being intolerant?)

Personally, I think we risk MORE by visiting the doctor! LOL! NOT visiting should add years. :)

Nice to know I will go until I am 96, and my Mum until she is 102. She will be pleased to hear that. But I think they are missing one or two vital questions. :-)

Yeah, I noticed a few

vitals missing as well. Guess they didn't want to *really* depress us! LOL!

says I have 25 more years (and even more if I lose more weight and become a little more active) so that's pretty good! LOL, just have to hope my mind lasts as long as my body!

YOU GO GIRL!

I should take it again with my old weight and see how much less time I'd have had...no, maybe not. :)

Okay, resetting to my old VERY overweight

self - I only lost 2 years. *looks around for a candy bar*

For two years - I'll have an extra helping of ... anything! LOL!

Re: Okay, resetting to my old VERY overweight

LOL, just re-did it with my target weight and it only gave me 2 more years for 80 pounds less. Hmmm, you know, I think you're right. The difference between 97 and 99 hardly seems worth the struggle. ::grins::

Re: Okay, resetting to my old VERY overweight

Just realized that I added wrong ... the site gives me 35 more years at current weight and activity levels, or 97 years. If I drop to target weight, and exercise every day, I can get to 100. Funny how little difference 80 pounds and three extra days of exercise a week would make. Of course, those three years might seem more important once I get to, oh, say, 97. ::grins::

Re: Okay, resetting to my old VERY overweight

I added more exercise and only bought 2 more years!!! *grumbles about loss of one year* OTOH, you're right - who wants to live to 97 anyway? Let alone 100. :)

Can't even imagine. Don't want to, either! LOL!

It says I have another 30 years. That seems fairly optimistic. But I better start saving better
alyburns From: alyburns Date: September 26th, 2012 12:20 am (UTC) (Link)

LOL!

Yeah, I'm thinking 20 more years may not be worth it! LOL! *shivers*

I think I'll start drinking and smoking and stop wearing a seatbelt. I can't afford to live that long!

*nods enthusiastically*

EXACTLY! *looks for chocolate*

I added twelve years to my total just by going back and changing eating habits to what they were for years from what they've been the last year since my father died. Uhmmm... need to go grocery shopping.

God, I have another 40 years to live? I suppose that doesn't put into account me killing my staff or killing myself to put myself out of my misery!!!
