    explanation of an unworldly sentence

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to explain to me in plain English the meaning of the following sentence?

    Of only someone had told me the body I loathed in my 20 s would be the body I wistfully longed for in my 30 s.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    As we grow older, so we regret that we did not appreciate the qualities we had when young.
