This post might offend, but I'm curious................

What is the oldest age that you have ever known of someone who was overweight most of their life to live to?

For me it is 72

However it seems like the mid to late 60's is the most common...

So, can I ask, if a 50 something year old refuses to try to lose weight is that the same as a 20 something year old refusing to get treatment for cancer (or diabets, or whatever)

My great grandmother was always very heavy. She was 5 foot 6 and weighed 325 at her heaviest.
She lived to be 97. Died of a heart attack

Yeah no shit.
That's the point I was making dumb ass.
Age really has little correlation with health.

My grandmother lived to 100. She ate at McDonald's for lunch and dinner most days. Her breakfast was a pastry and coffee.

My grandma lived until her 82nd birthday. She was a size 3x for as long as I can remember. Then in the last month she gained so much fluid we had to buy a 5x to bury her. She had lymphadema (sp?) so most of her weight was fluid not fat. And there was nothing that could be done to make her loose weight.

My Dad is 76 and is overweight and has been for years. He is not well though. I am not sure how much longer we will have him. My dh's great Aunt was overweight and lived to be 102.  So there is a lot that goes into longevity other than weight.

78, my grandfather.

Actually, scratch that. My great grandma was overweight and passed away at the age of 99.
