A 46-year-old mother has shared an album of incredible ‘then and now’ photographs that reveal just how little she has aged over the last three decades.
Fitness fanatic Shapprell Dallas, from Florida, looks just as toned and wrinkle-free today as she did while posing in a bikini in her early 20s.
The business owner claims she looks so youthful that strangers often mistake her for her 17-year-old daughter’s sister.

The striking similarity between Shapprell and daughter Destiny is clear in images taken of the pair on the beach together.
Shapprell said: ‘People say we look like sisters. Wow, unbelievable when I hear that. She’s soon to be eighteen and I’m soon to be forty-seven.
‘People are very complimentary now, or they don’t say anything at all.’

Shapprell admits she felt insecure about her body when she was younger after she was teased in school for being ‘too skinny’.
‘I felt insecure about different things about my body in my twenties because I was teased about my body as a kid and teenager,’ she said.
‘They used to tease me about being too skinny and make fun of me. I became a personal fitness trainer at the age of 21; my husband and I went into the fitness business when I was 22 and I never stopped working out and taking care of my body.’

Shapprell’s husband also appears to have hardly aged a day and looks just as young as his wife.
However their toned physiques take a lot of time and effort. Shapprell revealed she works out five times a week, every week.
She added: ‘I loved being healthy and fit; it gave me energy and confidence. I worked very hard to become my absolute best; I exercise five-days a week no matter what.

‘Maintaining my weight has been easy for me because I never quit; I never take a long break from working out.
‘I have a new-found confidence that I didn’t even know existed. I love everything about my body; including my flaws, imperfections, and weaknesses.
‘I eat lean and clean ninety percent of the time; I don’t ever eat fried food, I only eat white meat and I don’t drink alcohol.’
