I don't know if I would look that good in my seventies, but I think I look better at 42 than I did at 20 years old, hands down. I am more toned and stronger, more active, have more energy. Though I may be a tad more cautious and less adventurous lol. I am not quite as flexible as when I was 20 but I can still do the splits in at least one direction.
I also do not wear makeup and rarely have (save my sisters wedding in 1995 and dance performances on stage many many years ago). I am still mistaken for being in my twenties in some photos, though I think this last few years has been a trying time and aged me lol.
However, I do not like the shape of my body (short waist, very long legs, knock knees, large butt even at a very low weight). I can't really change that, but over the years I manipulated my weight and body fat to try to at least control it a little. One of the hardest things I think is for women to accept their bodies the way they are and love what you have right now. We are practically born taught to compare ourselves to others and live up to a certain standard. Health and longevity come not just with physicality, but with attitude and outlook.
In the end, only kindness matters. - Jewel
