Real Age

In reality, I am 40.1 years old. I mean by that, according to my birth certificate and on the calendar. But when I take a test at Real Age, I am 53.5 years old. How depressing. This number takes into consideration my family history, my health history, my current health, and my habits. I've successfully added 13.4 years to my life through all that. ::sigh::

Chel gets a daily email from Real Age. She loves learning about what to eat and how to eat it and what's good for you and what's not. I shake my head at every email. Seriously, if I ate what they've said to eat this month alone, I'd constantly be eating, just to get enough of what they say we need. Of course, I like food, so that wouldn't be a bad thing. But I want to choose the food I eat all day long. Forget this almonds, broccoli, tuna stuff. No thanks. Give me pasta, red meat, bread, and chocolate.

Seriously, it's a good site. Lots of good info, some good quizzes, ideas ... stuff I'll never use cuz I'm too heavy, too tired, and too busy eating. :)

Hello. I'm the guy that posted the Skidboot video.

In reality (whatever that is) I'm almost 50 (Nov 5th). I'm afraid to take the Real Age test. God knows I feel like 70 sometimes. I guess I'll just have to work up the courage and see where I stand.

I like your blog. It has a personal, intimate feeling I've yet to achieve although I've been blogging about a year now. Keep it up!

I've looked at your pictures too. Your cats look very much like mine - cute! I've got some cat pictures posted (unfortunately mixed with everything else - I've got to get organized!) - at http://www.flickr.com/photos/astroroach/ if you're interested.

Hey, Andy looks just like Soccer! And your dog looks like ours, too. We have yet to put a pic of her on here ... we will, I am sure!

Well, despite the fact that I get daily RealAge emails, with lots of great advice, I am sad to say that although my biological age is 33.6 my RealAge is 41.4 - I think I could bring that down a lot if I would just get off my butt and do even a little exercise. I know I feel better when I do, but right now I have neither the time nor the energy...ok, I do have some time, but not the energy.

I did the real age thing and it said I was the equivalent of 60 as I remember it. I'm really only 48 though. I also don't go much for that "healthy" stuff. I'm a meat and potatoes kind of guy. It's the way I grew up. I know I could eat healthier, but I like what I like.

I did the real age test a month or so ago. I guess being an overweight, diabetic smoker has not been the best lifestyle choice. (laugh)
