I found an app(lication) on iTunes for my iPhone . . . Death Clock. (Sounds like a movie trailer, doesn’t it?)

Anyway, this handy little free app asks you a few questions, then computes the statistical average of your life span . . . and then ticks it down for you in remaining years, months, days, hours, and seconds.
Remember the other day when we were talking about the jar full of marbles? How you should fill a jar with a marble for every (expected) remaining week of your life just so you can be aware of time passing?
Well, I’ve discovered a new application for the Death Clock. I discovered that by changing my weight from what it is NOW to what it will be when I reach my weight loss goal, I gain twelve years! Do you know how many books I can write in twelve years?
Yessir, by simply losing weight and not changing another thing, I go from an expected life span of 83 to 95.
Which, for me, is a VERY good reason to stick to the diet plan.

    “Death Clock” – sounds ominous! I can just hear something with exaggerated ticking sounds!

    But I’m all for you writing until you’re at least 95!!

    Hmmmm…the clock’s name makes sense, but sounds like something out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie!

    Other web sites do similar tests and I’m averaging around 76 years or so. Not bad for the mess my body’s in!! *smile*

    P.S. I’ve lost 40 lbs in about 9 months! But I cheated…had bariatric surgery. Good for you for sticking to your diet! My only question: What happens when you go back to “people food” instead of your “program food”? Just curious.
