Lifespan calculator

Here's an interesting link someone sent me: a lifespan calculator.

This says I'll make it to 91 years old. Whoo-hoo!


  1. 88 here.

    I'm 60 now.

    My calculation was skewed somewhat by the fact that my father died at 62 of a stroke. However, virtually every other of my ancestors lived healthily into their high 80s and 90s. In other words, longevity runs in my family.

    And, fortunately, I don't take after my father in regards to cardiovascular issues.

    So, like Michelle said ... we'll see.


  2. YES!!! 100 for me. Just hope I'm a healthy 100. I plan to be.

  3. 97 here, of course, I'm almost 65 now and longevity runs in the family. Father's side all siblings died between 80 & 89, his father died at 91; mother's side, still have 3 aunts at 87,89 & 93. Need to keep up the exercise and lose that last 15-20 lbs, already lost 76 lbs. Another good on line calculator to use is the BMI. That, plus regular doctor visits, controlling weight, blood pressure and cholesterol and not smoking or drinking to excess and getting enough exercise are the keys to living a long healthy life - at least my doctor says so.

  4. 86 here .. I can live with that.

  5. my oh my, I should make it to 90 and I am 63..I would think with stress and helping run my husband's small tub repair business, I should last another year...HA HA And I do not go to doctors...Maybe that is why I will probably make 90.

  7. 95 years. Currrently 48 turning 49 next month. 95 would be awesome, we worry about our young (late in life) autistic daughter.

    Whew! 'Have until I'm 91 to get the house cleaned, learn to make bread, get caught up on the laundry and ironing, clean the coop, scoop the poop and weed the garden (again).

    Since I now have plenty of time left for the darn chores, I'm gonna make a cup of tea with honey, put my feet up and finish reading your great book!

    TTFN.... :0)

  9. Wow I will live until 93. I suppose that makes sense since my grandma is 91 and still going strong. I try to model my life after hers! Thanks for posting!
