How is aging altering your appearance? Watching how people evolve physically is a transition that fascinates me. When I went to my 50-year high school and college reunions in the last two years, I loved seeing how people had changed. Most were mellower, some—like my friend Cindy—smiled more than I remembered, and others were completely unrecognizable. I don’t think I was so identifiable, especially with my beard. Would you have guessed it was me?

More important is being fit and healthy by eating right and exercising. Abs are a nice cosmetic benefit that are good for your core. Some defined muscles are also a visual treat. But toned muscles and the mobility to enjoy life and keep playing sports is the key goal…An inevitable part of the older-growing process is to wrinkle and gray (if we live long enough and don’t color our hair). I’ve observed aging with equines and canines. Now here are some famous feminines who’ve been affected by their years. MAYBE YOU SHOULD SEND IN PHOTOS OF YOUR CHANGES OVER THE DECADES. I will include them with pictures of celebrity males who’ve “matured.”
