100 lb. Club - Real Age

My mom pointed me to this website to find out how your current lifestyle affects your age.
Takes a little while to fill out but it is eye-opening.
My calendar age is 31.8
My real age is 27.7
Difference of -4.1 :D
lol Nelie....duh for me....brain fart!

I think I took that once, but it only works for people 20 and up.... I think I wound up being about 20. :lol: It would be fun to take if you were older though. Things like that are really cool.

What is the website?
10-11-2004, 10:13 AM

Kimberlie, thanks so much for sharing this....it was really interesting! I'm 40 -- real age 38. (It would be less if my partner quit smoking and I joined more group/community org's and, um, lost weight.) This was great...

Funny, the website said that I may be working out too much, HA! Anyway, it said my real age was 24 and I'm 29.4. It also said to lose weight and that I don't eat enough fruits or grains.

sarah mine also said i should get more involved with groups and stuff. LOL

my calendar age: 37.3
my real age: 41.0
I don't currently exercise at all, so that's part of the problem. I also don't eat enough veggies and I eat too much red meat. My yo-yo dieting has affected my real age, and (in a "well, duh!" revelation) I need to lose weight.

This is fun! Thought I'd add also that apparently I drive too fast. ;)
10-11-2004, 01:52 PM
My calendar age is 28.1 my real age is 28.0 I drive to many miles and too fast!
10-11-2004, 01:54 PM
I also drive way too many miles, but it's hard to avoid when it's 50 miles round trip to work.
I wish I'd lose MORE points to the motorcycle! My husband hasn't had it out in probably six months. I told him half-jokingly the other day that if he didn't start riding it, I was going to! (I need to learn how to shift out of first gear, though.)

Very interesting. I'm 67.1 but my "RealAge" is 60.1 and I still weigh more than 200 lbs. Wonder how much a good weight loss would change it all. I'd do a bit better on my driving but I sort of averaged the amount over the speed limit that I go and dh goes. HE drives really too fast much of the time. Of course, the lose weight thing. And I too should belong to more "groups". I didn't include 3FC as a group. Think I'll go over it again.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised.

It's been a few weeks and I took this. I'm 31 and it had me at 34.4 I don't remember what the analysis was though.
10-11-2004, 04:23 PM
I drive too fast as well, I have a collection of speeding tickets. I also wasn't social enough for it either. At first I was thinking "-5.4?! what?! but I'm not that unhealthy" then I figured - was good.

Anagram, I went back after my "honest" one and put in my goal weight as my current weight and it took even more years off. I like to go back and put in things I'd like to change and see the impact in years.
10-11-2004, 05:03 PM
I'm 51, and my "real" age is 44. Uh-huh.
10-12-2004, 03:06 AM
I'm 27 and my real age is 18.6!
10-12-2004, 07:13 AM
I'm going to have to try it again another day. When I put in 150 and then 140 pounds, my RealAge went up. Maybe I'll start from scratch and see what happens. Losing weight was taking a year off my RealAge. That can't be right.
10-12-2004, 11:47 AM
Anagram, maybe it thinks that 150 is a good weight for you? I don't know.
I went back and put in 160 (instead of 298) as my weight and it said my real age would be 23.7 which is only .3 off from my real age of 24 at my weight of 298. I think that is kind of interesting.

Im 37 and it said I'm 42. I really got hit in the fruit and veggie section plus the exercise. Guess I know where I need to work.
