oh, I'm pretty sure you can do that by the end of the year!!! It'll come pretty quick once you learn what the tests are and how to do them.

I know how you feel. I just turned 29 and I am dreading my next birthday already! At least your wii age says you are your age or younger. Mine says I am 43! Not that there is anything wrong with being 43 but when your not even 30 yet..... it really depresses me! So I have set a goal that by my next b-day I will get much closer to my actual age! If not younger! It's going to take some work. I have a couple of weeks less than a year to do it. I think thats plenty of time!

There's a saying where I come from - "You're only as old as the girl/guy you're feeling" so if you marry someone 10 years younger than you, life is good! lol

Congrats on the big 30. I hope you had a great birthday.

If I'm a day ahead of you... Don't get confused. I'm just a time traveller... :D

Well, that just sounds stinky!!! But I'm glad that you're happy with yourself--because that's what REALLY matters. AND, you still have a few months before then!!! So, You go, girl!!

I have to get mine redone by Dec. 15. emoticon emoticon

I'm not ready for that. It's been 10 years since I've had to get the picture changed on my license. The last time, I was able to do it online.

Ten years ago, was when my weight issues began due to being sexually harrassed at work. I'm not back to where I was (weight-wise) yet. I'm not looking forward to this picture; but I need to remember that I am enjoying the person I am. I can't let a picture change that for me.

ha--next Nov. is when I have to do my license--and I'm looking forward to it!!! I've been wanting a newer one anyway (since it has my old glasses on it, and I've had the ones I've got for at least 3 years)...but also so that I can change my weight (since I had to raise it when I changed addresses in 2006, but it's not as high as I got to)....anyway..back to the age thing...(btw, I'll be 28 this Nov.)

I think I'm aging backwards--when I was in middle school, I got along better with my teachers than my peers. When I was in high school, I got along better with those older than me.

Now I feel that I relate to teenagers better than adults, course part of that is that most adults in this town are at least in they're 40-50's--NOT that I'm saying "that's old", BUT saying that most are beyond the having children stage of life. At any rate, they're old enough to not have grown up with computers, internet, video games, and praise music--all things that I LOVE!!! So it's a bit harder to have common interests/whatnot with them.

But it should be interesting hitting 30--I'm (for the most part) a "you're as old as you feel" person (course, that makes me about 60 as much as my back/hips go out of place...lol), but I'm also starting to worry a bit about age, because I still want a couple more kids. Other than that, I think I'm mostly okay with getting older in years, but I do want to reduce the getting older in health/accessibility part of it.

Happy Birthday. Good going on your young Nintendo ages - you are doing the right things to stay healthy.

30 was a tough one for me too, but my most difficult was last year when I hit 50. To me 50 tells me there is no getting around it, I'm AT LEAST middle aged. I'll be 51 in November and I want to drop as much weight as possible. Its the year to renew my driver's license, and they won't let me do it by mail this time. I have to get a new picture and everything. I'm dreading it.

My wii fit age is all over the board. I go from 34 to 45 regularly. Luckily I've only been over 50 one time, so that's good.

I don't think I was too happy with my 30th birthday either, nor a couple of more as they came up in my 30's. But not that I just turned 40, it doesn't bother me anymore! Not much of anything bother's me like it used to. It is definitely something that a lot of people go through and as the years go on, for many, it gets a lot easier. Happy Birthday and remember, you really are as young as you feel! :)

Thanks both of you. It helps to know that I am not the only one finding this milestone to be a difficult one.

I am 60 years old. I have never been bothered by a birthday more than the one when I turned 30. My husband still remembers how depressed I was months before it ever happened.
So, if you get past this one, you might just take the rest in stride.
Take it easy, and enjoy your young age...I envy you.

Good for you! Technically, on your birthday, you are only one day older than the day before.

With that being said, 30 hit me pretty hard, too. This year, I will hit the big 4-0 and it doesn't seem to be affecting me at all. I guess we just get a bit more comfortable with everything as we age.

I hope you had a GREAT birthday!

Hello all,
I had my 30th birthday Saturday, and to be completely honest, I wasn't all that enthused about it. It is a landmark, and because there are some things in my life that need changing, it wasn't such a happy birthday.

I had already done my workout for the day, and I was feeling ok, but just ok.

I decided to do my Wii age, just to see. I did it with Wii sports, and I got 25. Not too shabby. Then I also did it with the Wii Fit, and I got 20. Best ever.

So, while it may be a bit of coincidence, while it may be the fact that I have been really committed to my exercise lately, while it may be any number of things, it was a very welcome pick-me-up. So, according to Nintendo, I may be 30, 25, or 20, just depending on how I feel.

It reminds me that although 30 isn't completely welcome for me, age really is just a number.
