Photo Gallery: What 70 (and 80) Looks Like

These people over 70 tell you why they're happy in their own skin

Eduardo P. Camacho, 77

El Paso, Texas
Retired Railroad Worker

My wife and I have been married for 43 years. We're more passionately in love than ever. I feel more needed now that she has Alzheimer's. I try to take walks five times a week, but I'm not always able to. In this house we say, "Move it or lose it." So I move because I want to hold on to my mobility. I eat in moderation, I take medication for cholesterol and high blood pressure, but that's it. I get frequent haircuts and shave every day. I don't color my hair. When men dye their hair or wear toupees, you can tell right away. If I'm going to get bald, I'm going to get bald. Getting older doesn't bother me. I'm just grateful we're here.
