Apologies if this is a post that already exists 

 

I'm 31, people seem shocked to find that out when they do, usually they think I am 20-25. Not going to lie, makes me feel great. 

 

Do you look your age or younger/older?

I still get asked for ID when buying alcohol (I'm 33) so I guess in some lights I look young, but honestly, the more weight I lose, the more I start to notice myself looking haggard.

I'm 23 and people guess me as 21, never older than that thank god. I feel like I look about 35 because of my sunken cheeks though...

 

Edit: Just realised I'm in the wrong forum, soz.

I used to REALLY hate looking young but it's finally caught up to me now where I want to look young so I certainly welcome it. PLEASE card me :3  I think being a petite person certainly helps though

I think my body doesn't really match the silhouette of woman my age ...
Though I personnaly think the skin can say that I am not a teenager.
My face has been groing tired due to ... too much hard times.

I probably look a very weird mix.

People have said I'm hard to age as I show 'lots of energy' in my job. I only get ID'd in bars, though, not shops etc.

I relate to that too; it's amazing how quickly looking young can suddenly end!

With a mask people think im in my 20s. Ouch. They guess my age close when they can see my face. A few guess younger but I assume they're being polite.

Yesterday someone thought I was 25 when in fact I am 32. They guessed my niece's age (20) correctly. I definitely take it as a compliment even though I feel as if my wrinkles have already started appearing but IMO being as skinny as a slim teenager definitely takes some years off.

I don't know. It is totally random lol. Online from my face a lot of people tell me I like older. Then again ... sometimes I get told I look younger. Irl (not in the internet) I think it also depens a lot on the clothes.  Years ago (I think I was already 30 or about 30 almost) someone wanted to see my ID when I wanted to buy a lotto ticket (counts as gambling and you need to be 18+) ... but I had very casual clothing (summer) and sunglasses I think. More serious looking clothing and I would have looked older.

 

I also have trouble noticing/guessing the age of other people. So I look somewhat my age to most ... and just every now and then someone that also has trouble guessing the age lol.

That's a really good point, clothes/makeup/hair matter A LOT

I don't have wrinkles (yet) so usually I get 25-26 as a guess (I'm 32).

 

Just a matter of time though. I use tretinoin and all but this is one clock you can't outrun. >_>

I'm 30 and I think if there was an encyclopedia with a picture of a 30yo woman I would be that one :D. I think I look exactly 30 (my boss and collagues were surprised when I told them but I think it's partly because I started working rather late in my life. Plus they said they thought "20's", and technically I was in my 20s a year ago). To be honest I'm happy about it because all in my teenage life I looked much older.


height: 177cm/5'9

HW: 68kg (BMI 21,7)

LW: (back in 2010...) 53,5kg (BMI 17,1)

SW: 65kg (BMI 20.75)

CW: 58.5 kg (BMI 18.7) (thighs: 53 cm / 21'')

Goals (310):

- Being under 18.5 BMI according to the newly proposed BMI - 59.3kg

- losing 2 BMI points - 58.7 kg (BMI 18.7)
- losing 10% of my weight - 58.5
- Being under BMI 18.5 - 57.95 kg

- Being under BMI18 according to the newly proposed BMI - 57.7kg

- Being under BMI 18 - 56.4 kg

- Being at BMI 17.5 - 55kg (I just put this here so that I can have 10 goals)

- Being under BMI 17 according to the newly proposed BMI - 54.5 kg
- Being under BMI 17 - 53.25 kg
- Having thighs under 20''/50.8 cm - 
52.5kg
