I found this article on MSN about a contest for women in thier 40's who look fabulous......... If this is what 40 looks like then I cant wait!!



Teruko Burrell, 46, Santa Monica California

Museum administrator, part-time framer.

Her diet: I've been vegetarian since I was 22. I just can't do the vegan thing -- I love cheese and fish and just can't give up Rice Krispies Treats.

Her workout: I'm a speed-walker, 30 minutes four or five times a week along the beach in Santa Monica. We also have a gym with treadmills where I work, and access to a personal trainer, so I don't have an excuse for not working out.



Janine Crisera, 43, Middletown, New Jersey

Hairstylist. Married with sons John, 18, and Michael, 7, stepsons John, 21, and Thomas, 12, stepdaughter Ashley, 18.

Her diet: I use lots of olive oil -- great for skin and hair. This will sound like a lot, but breakfast is old-fashioned oatmeal with blueberries. Two hours later, veggies: cucumber, carrots, and zucchini. Lunch is a huge salad. Dinner can be chicken and broccoli rabe or sweet potatoes. I cook dinner every single night for my family. It's a ritual and I love it.

Her workout: I don't belong to a gym. I prefer working out at home so I can do a set of weights whenever I like. There are free weights and a weight bench in my basement, so I sneak in 10 minutes here and there all day long.

Kim, you look fantastic! I don't know about you but I love being in my 40's (44 to be exact). No, I'm not the flat stomached, flawless skinned girl I was 25 years ago or so, but, with age comes a little wisdom and if you are happy with who you are and where you are in life I believe it shows on the outside, I kinda like my gray hairs and little wrinkles and I especially love to look at my husband and see how he has changed over the years, we have been together since I was 20 and I think he is more sexy looking now then ever.

I thought that was Diana too!! LOL

And Kim & Harley - you are sexy mamma's ... so no worries!

I would love to see what my b/f Leo would look like in 20 years - probably like his dad I'm assuming - being his dad looked JUST like him when he was his age. They broke out some old pics, and when his dad gave me a pic of himself from his army days... they all laughed when without a word, I just turn and look at my b/f in amazement- LOL TWINS!

I think there are probably several factors here but i think that two important factors here are good genes and a good diet. In reading their profiles most of them seem to have a diet rich in veggies.

I have commonly heard that 40 is the new 30, and I completely believe it. Women are thankfully taking much better care of themselves today. I also think there is a certain confidence in a 40 year old women that makes them very sexy and attractive, and this is something that you only get with age and experience.

Kim, there is nooo way you look your age, I would have never guessed, especially with that awesome smile! You give me something to look forward to!

Bad genes, poor diet??? LOL

There are quite a few men I know that look older than when they really are. My hubby for example is 3 years younger than me but actually looks older than me. Dont worry Tony, age looks good on some men!

Its the genes I am sure. MY dad looked 50 at 30. Then he died at 54. I hope I don't die that early. He did smoke 3 packs a day tho. I try to keep myself at only 2.5 packs /day. LOL

Just kidding, I have never even TRIED smoking. Nasty

I have kind of a "Lilly Munster" thing going on with my gray hair, a big chunk that goes down the sides in the middle of my part line, and gray streaks at the sides, in the front, above my ears, my daughters think it looks cool

I'm so used to looking the way I do - I haven't changed at all since I was about 16 - (except maybe adding on a few pounds lol) I don't know how I'll handle looking older...
