I turned 30 and my knees and back hurt already. Working out is getting harder, i can't just abuse my body anymore. Plus, all of the sudden i have these urges to watch Matlock and tell kids to get off my lawn.

The saying "age is just number" is a cliche but is very true. Who really cares about how old you may be as long as you feel as good or better than the day before. If you can accomplish that, than I can guarantee you will be content being 30, 40 or 95. I am looking forward to turning 30 because I will be able to tell myself that I feel better at 30 than I did at 29!

I was okay about turning 30. I didn't want to sound "old". I don't feel "30", but when I look into the mirror I just know that my 20's kicked my butt and that now its time to make that butt look good.
I have 3 children I was 160 on my wedding day when I was 21. Would like to hit that # again. I'm 5'9" and am big boned. So I'm happy @ 160. I look sickly thin @ 145, but too plesently plump @ 190.

I have given up on birthdays- kidding! I am really looking forward to mine. It's on Friday and I am going out with my friends and husband. I cried on my 22nd birthday- it was my senior year of college, and I wasn't 21 anymore. That was my saddest day- it didn't feel like I was a kid anymore. Of course, I still was. Who cares about getting a little older? Your birthday is the one day of the year that is all about you.

i have decided to make the most of it! look at all the celebs that are around our age and how great they look. Demi Moore for crying out loud, i can only hope and pray, well i dont even look that good now so i won't pray to look like that at 40!

i went crazy with the wrinkle cream but found some great products with my avon lady. i buy them when they are on sale and she lets me buy them at the sale price for two catalogs (i think they come out monthly?) so in two months when i run out i will still be able to get them on sale!

So far i can tell a slight improvement, though i know my expectations are a little unrealistic. Heres to being older and wiser!

I didn't cry when I turned 30 - I was in shock. I realize that 30 is still very young, and I'll freak out more when the 40s come.

There are always things that other people have that someone else might want, but I always try to remember that I have things that not many others have, and that puts a big smile on my face and my heart.

I was so happy when I turned thirty because I realized that I was still alive. I'm not old, not even mature. I still do many childish things.
But I'm just so happy to be alive and relatively healthy. Healthy as a horse in fact. Now if I can just get my head straightened out. . .

I could really care less about actually turning 30, its all the other stuff that comes with it i don't like so much. i have been so bad to myself it is all finally catching up fast. i have been an avid tanner forever, and i can finally see the horrible effects everyone warns you of. My skin is in horrible shape, and even with all of the botox in the world my neck makes me look like i am 50! my eye and forehead area are definitely showing lines more in the last few years. My vision is starting to go downhill (probably also from the tanning) and i continuously struggle with my weight from all of the partying in my early 20's.

I can deal with all of that though, i really don'e regret any of it. My husband is a vibrant 21 and his jokes get a little old but i know he is only kidding.

Lets hope i don't freak out on the big day!

Yeah, for me the 20s just kept going and going and going...well you know...so I wasn't sure how to react to turning 30.

Thanks for reminding me that we're still young. Maybe I'll live up to 100. Now, THAT, might make me cry, but in a good way.

My thirtieth was not any different. I did feel like I've entered a new section of my life and for me that is saying something. I thought I'd be "20 something" forever.

Chin up, though...we've got at least as many years ahead of us as we do behind...even more if we get healthy now.

I was surprised that I had a blast on my birthday. Turning 30 felt like any other birthday, but many people had warned me that I would cry. I did worry weeks before my birthday. Obviously, I knew life would keep going, but maybe I expected everyone to treat me differently? I don't know. The only people having an issue with my age are some members of my family. I am a single 30 year old Hispanic female with no children. This creates a bit of a controversy where I am from. But you know what? I have never been in a better place. I am confident, happy, and I get to focus on bigger things, like getting healthy.
