Cindy Crawford's fit 40s
( femalefirst.co.uk ) - Cindy Crawford prefers her body now to when she was in her 20s - because she has had to work for it. The 41-year-old supermodel and mother-of-two admits her slender size 8 figure came naturally to her when she was younger, but appreciates it much more now because of the effort she has to put in to maintain it.
Cindy said: "When I was 23, other women could look at me and say 'Well, she's never had kids'. But now I have and I know what it's like to have to lose baby weight.
"I'm actually happier with my body now than I was back then, because the body I have now is the body I've worked for."
The catwalk beauty keeps in shape by sticking to a high-protein diet and a rigorous exercise regime of Pilates, cardio work and yoga. Cindy has previously confessed to having Botox and collagen injections since she was 29 to stay looking youthful.
She said: "I owe the quality of my skin to my cosmetic surgeon. I'm not going to lie to myself, past a certain age, creams work on the texture of your skin but, in order to restore elasticity, all I can really count on is vitamin injections, Botox and collagen."
