Would you like to calculate your life expectancy? No identifying info is required so be honest with your answers if you really want to know. Before you start, it would be good to know the ages when parents, grandparents and siblings died. At the end, besides giving you an age, it gives you the things that you have going for you and what you need to change to live longer.

Not sure of the accuracy of this calculator, as it stands I will live to be 102. Not sure I want to live that long, we always said that we were going to live long enough to have our children change our diapers but that could be too much of a reality (sure I didn't spell that correct)

Hey, I supposed to be 102 as well! Not only that, I should gain 5 pounds to get to my ideal weight it says....um...I've seen myself in a bikini and I'm not thinking ADDING 5 pounds is the way to go here!

Well if this is true, my husband only has 3 more years to live. But I didn't know all of his family history, but I do know its not good.

I am only going to live to be 87. I need to lose weight

I'm not satisfied with mine. Because of my Dad living a reckless life and dying at 70, having a grandparent with diabetes as a kid, having a few aunts and uncles that believed the only exercise they needed was the remote control doesn't and shouldn't predict how long I will live. Their lifestyles contributed to their early deaths. I am nothing like them.
The calculator gave me 83, but i know i will get to 101 minimum.

The craps table is one place i wouldn't be at since ive never played it. When i get to 101 the last place i want to be is in a casino. I'd rather be on top of a mountain after a good day hike.
