My Truths #80 (fanny or face?)
A little extra padding in the right places can make you look younger. I read that Catherine Deneuve gained a little weight on purpose after she turned 40 to keep a more youthful appearance. She is credited with the statement “After a certain age, you have to choose between your fanny and your face.” That is one of the sad parts of weight loss…it often comes off your face first then if you gain it back… your face is the last place it goes back on. Women can avoid this somewhat by maintaining a healthy weight and avoiding yo-yo dieting.
