Okay, I'll be 70 in a few weeks, and my doctor just told me I look like I'm in my 50's. "Keep doing whatever it is you're doing" is what I hear. Yes, it's nice to hear compliments, but it's also nice NOT to worry about my shape (round is a shape) or TRYING to look younger than I am. I would probably look 70 if I let go altogether, but I'm only going to do as much as I comfortably can and want to.
