    Anyone else better looking than over a decade ago? or more?

    My sister recently burned a video of my wife and I on our wedding day 14 (I think ) years ago. While watching this morning with the fam I was a bit horrified with my overall nervous behavior, but even more horrifying - my pudgy head sticking out of a nice Tux. My 8 year old daughter kept saying "Dad, you look so much better now"

    Anyone else going through this "phase"?

    I was a middleweight (185lbs) competetive bodybuilder 10 years ago at 3-4% bodyfat. So I "looked" better back then.

    BUT... at my current husky self, I am WAY more fit now..

    My wife tells me that I keep getting better looking as I get older, but I think that is sort of one of those man versions of, "you do not look fat in those jeans" statements.

    When we met about 20 years ago, I was borderline fanatical about working out and riding. While no bodybuilder, my neck was 2" bigger, my waist was 3" slimmer and I could benchpress nearly twice my own weight.

    better?

    Well having gone back to work the 1st of September,(last worked March----June,forever out of work before that),I can say I look better now than than I did last year.Have lost 15lbs.A short bike commute is way better than sitting on your ass.
    I'm working for a pretty hip company that's quite bike friendly.
    The work is super cool.My attitude is sooo much better!
    Did I mention I'm working at Intel?
    What I was going to say at my age looking back a few years,there is no way you could look any worse.
    I'll be 60 in October.
    Cheers

    To whom?

    The ladies of my vintage seem to appreciate me. However I don't even exist to the younger girls unless it is as a dad, a coach, or a potential customer.

    Yea, I'm better looking. 10 years ago I was about 225 pounds ... on my way to 265. I'm now down to 185.

    Every time I look in the mirror I see a homage to Adonis, Thor and Brad Pitt. Who'd a thought one of the good things about getting old was failing eyesight?

    I've been married for 15 years now and let me tell you, I'm a FILF for sure. The ladies at work call me McSteamy. It's hard work looking this damn good, but it is a burden I am willing to bare.......no, really, I'm serious. Haha

    No.....

    I'm the same weight, and have been since I was in my twenties. So what do I look like now?

    Older.

    Wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, greying hair; sorry folks there's no escaping it.

    A long time from now I'll be really old.

    Then I'll croak.

    Great post Drew, count me in on that as well. The best thing is I still am in great shape compared to others my age (mid- 50's), and will continue to be as long as I can pedal the bike!
    Ride the bike.

    I'll still be ripping trails in my mid fifties, no doubt.

    Hopefully even my sixties!

    Weird, but I am the same weight I was twenty years ago, but I recently (last June) shaved my head (and still shave it), and a lot of people say I look ten years younger.
    Noticed I get smiled at by women more than I used too!

    Strange, but I not complainin'.

    Well, my eyesight is still good and when I look at pics of myself when I was in my 30's, it's apparent that I've been beat with the ugly stick. Still in good physical shape,though.
