In brief: Longevity
You are doing well.
Keep up with your healthy habits, exercise, proper diet, decreased stress, adequate sleep. To try to predict the length of your life, look at your parents, grandparents, and other relative. Remember, smoking, poorly controlled diabetes, accidents, and cancers may shorten someone's "genetic lifespan.' most children live to about the same age as parents, because of genes.

In brief: Just an average
Some families are blessed with good genetics.
It sounds like you have taken good care of yourself. Unless you experience trauma or cancer, you should keep doing well, and hopefully recover quickly from illness. Working in loma linda, I have cared for 85 year olds training for marathons. Enjoy your good health and keep up the good work!
