I am 84.  I have had 3 heart attacks and lung cancer.  I have COPD.  I try to walk between 2 and 5 miles a day outdoors in good weather, on treadmill in bad.  My mom died at 95.  My great grandmother at 97.  I'm aiming for 100.  But only if I am still in pretty good health, mentally and physically.

I am already 82 and I walk a couple miles out in the Country where I can get my heart rate up.

I walk my Dog and when I am not walking I am gardening.  My Mother lived to 92.  I only want to live as long as I am Healthy and so far I don't take any medications of any kind. I have a Centrum  Tablet once a day and 2 times a day I eat a Calcium Tablet.  I broke my hip a couple of years ago.  I was in the hospital for 3 days. A Nursing home for 3 days and then I had Physical Therapy for a few weeks and I have not slowed down since then.  I get a Prolia shot twice a year.  Staying active is the way to go. I can be out in the Country walking after 7 and 1/2 mile drive. Nobody around. I have to get up early and have breakfast and then go walking.  I weigh probably 121 lbs. I know I am lucky.  I don't do much shopping at the Grocery Store and I hate these masks.

105

with good health, good genes, healthy life style and excellent medical care I’m confident that I can live till 100 (67 now).  I understand after 100, each additional year is almost a geometric challenge therefore 105 is my stretched goal.

I'll try for 95.  I just published my fourth book on Amazon and Kindle at 92 and I've got two more to write.  It took about a year to write "There's Nothing I Can't Do - Fred's Story" so I hope to do a book a year.  As grandma used to say, "God willing and the crick don't rise." https://amzn.to/3cDKDHt

It is my intention to live to 100, since I am now 93, and will be 94 June 26 of this year. I am in good shape physically, continue to exercise daily, walk without a cane or other assistance. Very slight arthritis in each thumb and some in toes. My mind is clear, occasionally forgetting a celebrities name, a common thing in my residence in a leisure care facility. I still drive a car and have eyesight to have a drivers license with no restrictions. I write on my "travels blog" on my computer nearly each day and read non-fiction mostly on "quantum" science, aging, psychology and others. Good, nutricious food, staying relatively stress free through meditation, naps, and other activities keep me healthy and happy. Experiencing the death of two wives, the last six years ago, but meeting a new significan other at our mutual residence is really great for older people. Perhaps living to 100 is a restricted goal! I hope so.

As long as possible. I'll shoot for 100 years of age or older.
