My thirtieth birthday is in about six months, and last month I had that eye-widening OME moment: I have an unhealthy lifestyle, have never travelled, have a dead-end job... and am about to hit the big 3-0.

Needless to say it was time for a change. In one year I will be moving to another country for a work exchange --thus quitting the aforementioned job-- and during the twelve months leading up to that I'm going to start eating healthier and exercising more. Okay, exercising period. If I'm going to be a flirty thirty, I better start working on getting that beach body I've always wanted!

I bid farewell to my 20's. I've been wondering how the #30 will effect me, if I will have a "holy sh*t I'm old" breakdown moment. That thought has made me reflect back on the last decade to take inventory of my life to see if I should be happy to leave younger days behind or be sad that those days are over.

Over the last 10 years...

I have lived in: Ocean Springs, MS; Huntsville, AL; Thomasville, GA; Atlanta, GA; and Gulfport, MS. I have visited: NM, AZ, UT, CO, TX, LA, MS, AL, FL, GA, TN, NC, SC, and KY. I have worked at: JobCenter, Contam/Fox, City of Gulfport, FEMA, and SMPDD (The District)

I completed my Bachelors Degree. I have read over 500 books. I raised (well, I started raising) an awesome kid and was blessed with another. I hiked in the Smokey Mountains, waded in the Atlantic, and kayaked in the Gulf of Mexico. I have spent 10 great years next to my best friend and husband. I'm sure their were bad things that happened too, but those memories aren't as strong as the good ones.

I think after my inventory I can call my 20's a success but I'm excited to move forward and see what the next decade has in-store for me. I hope to learn new things and visit new places to enjoy this wonderful life as it comes.

Hi everyone, I'm new to the team. I turned 30 about 9 months ago, and to be honest I am SO excited to be entering my third decade of life! Initially, as I approached the big 3-0 I was feeling disappointed that I had not lived my 20s the way I wanted. However, I have since decided that I am going to make my 30s better than my 20s ever could have been. I'm ready to start living!

I just embraced it, went on holiday with my sisters and came back a different decade! I did use to see it as a low point, but I realise that it is a blessing to reach this age, not everyone gets here, so make the most of life and live it up. I'm not shy about my age, I am happy to be 30, and happy to get another 30 years +

I turned 30 in August 2012 and I was really unhappy about it. I was dreading it for several months before. It wasn't until the new year that I really turned my life around for the better. I am doing things I haven't done in years. It feels good to be active again. I'm still much younger than most of the people I spend time with and my friends too.

I turned 30 in December 2012 and had a tough time with it. I would have to say it started to hit me three or four months before. I was really bummed...dropped off from SparkPeople, stopped working out, and ate what I wanted. Luckily, I didn't get too crazy but I still put on a couple pounds.

Now that I am pretty much out of my "turning 30" funk, I am ready to get back to it. Looking forward to healthier me and some new dinner recipes for my husband and myself to enjoy!

Glad to be a part of this team and back focusing on a better me.

My thought on 30 is I finally feel like it is just a number. Until a month or so ago I dreaded my birthday which was last week. Now I see it as I'm in the prime of my life and will never have another chance to make the changes I want. I'm more "me" now than I have ever been before.

You are not getting old! My thoughts on thirty is that I am in a better place that I have ever been! I finally feel like I am becoming an adult. However, I need to remind myself to stay healthy

What are some of your thoughts on turning 30? What aspects of your life have you had to re-evaluate and what are some of your new goals?

Would also love to hear some success stories on those that accomplished your goals that were set when you turned the big emoticon
