25 was my hardest-my doctor had just ordered some heart testing since my dad had a heart attach at 38, and that really depressed me.

50 so far was my happiest-at 45 I was diagnosed with melanoma and if my lymph nodes were positive, then the prognosis was 5 years. Fortunately my lymph nodes were negative, I was stage I and have had no more issues at this point. So 50 was sweet!

I haven't found any birthday number particularly difficult. What I realise as I get older is that there is still so much that I still want to achieve. I am determined to lose some weight so that I boost my energy to keep walking in wilderness areas.

For me 37 was the worst for some reason- I was in the midst of raising a family, and was not working outside of the home... I can remember looking into the mirror just before my 37th birthday and really *seeing* myself- I was noticing the subtle changes that were beginning and I was sad to think that this was as good as it was gonna get and from this point on it was downhill as far as looks were concerned. It didn't help that hubby was out of town on business and I was home alone with 3 kids... That night was TOUGH...

Turning 30 was my hardest. That is the age my mother was when she died. and I am not sure why it was such a thing with me. I am now 55 soon to be 56 do not think of my self as a senior or getting close to that except on the days my body tells me different. I have now been married 38 years. they all just seem to be numbers.

So far no birthdays have been difficult. The older I get (I'm 57) I realize that each phase brings new advantages with it (yes, disadvantages too) that I really like. I think 60 may be a wake up call for me because it seems that when people think of retiring. But I am lucky to be working with several very productive, contributing co-workers who are 67, 70 and 72! So, I say---bring on the next birthday. Age is only a number and the more numbers I get the more body parts start to fall apart but I'm still going strong!

Turning 30, only because I was not where I wanted to be in my career as a nurse. I was hoping by the time I was 30, that I would have B.S.N. after my name, instead of L.P.N. which I still have behind my name. However, I am back in school now that I have a son in college, and a daughter in high school. I will get that B.S.N. asap!

I am going to be turning 60 in 8 months. Even though I started gaining all this weight (up to 100 pounds) when I turned 40, no birthday has been really hard for me until I suddenly, it seemed, "woke up" a few months ago and realized my entire "middle ages" had passed me by. I have been successful at work, but I have been completely isolated socially for 20 years. 60 is a HUGE wake-up call for me, and a big motivating factor in my determination that it is "now or never" for weight loss. NO MORE, NO MORE...... The rest of my life will be at "normal" weight.... and that is that....

Believe it or not, 25 bothered me! I thought I should be an "adult" at 25 and know what I wanted to do with my life...and I didn't know.

Now birthdays are just a number. They're getting to be a BIG number, but they're just a number.

50 was a realization of time passing; 60 that it was really going fast. My mind is still full of the same dreams, feelings, and longings of my youth but there's a melancholy now - an awareness of age and vulnerabilities. God has been good though, and we are blessed.

I don't remember the exact birthday (I believe it was in my 30's) but it was my worst birthday ever because my Mom was getting older and she forgot it was my birthday. She had never forgotten before and it was very difficult to see her getting older.

I will be 57 in two days and I gotta say, the only one that upset me, for some odd reason, was 31!
I think it was when I was having difficulties in my marriage, so did like most of you posted, what had I accomplished??
If I knew then, what I know now,post-divorce, I would have smiled at the person in the mirror instead of crying,, I still remember the moment,,
alas, another chapter in the book that is our life,eh? I'll be smiling Wednesday!!

60 wasn't hard at all! My husband loves me fat or thin and so do our kids - what a blessing. Now losing weight is my challenge. Having a buddy who is your same place really helps. My friend talked me into our town's version of "biggest loser" and I am really motivated and hope I can stay that way. we'll see how I do in 12 weeks!

why does turning 60 distress us so--it is just a number. I am fairly healthy dispite the weight which is a good thing. I am finding my job a little more tiring though (work in a school cafe) I come home and feel like not making dinner at all.

The worst was about two weeks after I turned 30. I couldn't define myself as a recent graduate yet I didn't feel truly accomplished. The reality and responsibilities of being an adult really hit me hard. 40 was easy and so was 50.

I am turning 59 this year. I haven't minded any age so far but turning 60 scares me a bit. I don't know why because it is just a number. As long as my health holds out--it is ok. It helps to talk to people going through the same things. You feel the same as always only have a few more aches and pains. I think losing weight will help a lot!

25 was the worst for me--that quarter of a century thing really threw me for a loop too!
I loved turning 40, and for my 50th my younger sisters threw a special surprise weekend for me to celebrate so that was cool too.
I was surprised to see I'm not the only one who automatically adds a year to their age after they've had their birthday, in anticipation of the next one.
And although my body certainly reminds me that I'm over 50 now, I think my brain is still back at that quarter of a century! It can't believe that I'm this freakin' old!

Same here. On my 25th birthday a friend pointed out that I was a quarter of a century old, and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I Couldn't believe how OLD I was then. Over the years, I've smiled to myself when I remember that. Now, I tend to forget my age because on my birthday, I start looking forward to the next, so I add another year before time. It's really just a number for me as I feel I younger and more adventurous every year. Thank God for one more day!!

Thank you all for your insights. I must agree staying positive, finding pro's and thanking God everyday is really the key. My kids are 9 and 12 so I have a ways before they are on their own. I really enjoyed hearing from everyone. It is amazing how diverse and unique we all are. I wish everyone peace, joy, love, contentment and sucess in their continued journey of life.

After breezing through all of my previous birthdays, my 61st birthday hit me. Maybe it was because I found myself divorced, and also realized that retirement will not be an option for a very long time. I think losing some weight will help me make it through the long haul!!! Maria

I found that turning "30" was the most difficult for me. But on the other hand, when I reached "50" I celebrated with my family around me. I am now "56" and even though I can't do what I use to do after having back surgery, I am enjoying life more. emoticon emoticon Birthdays now, are a celebration to the fact that I am still alive and walking and enjoying everything that life has to throw at me.

Like a few others that have commented, 25 was the hardest for me. I thought that I was old, but I didn't feel it. I couldn't make sense of it. I am now 51 and loving it. Isn't it funny how years pass so slowly when you're younger, but the older that you become the faster the years seem to pass?

I found 30 to be just totally devastating. I had spent 7 years living like there was no tomorrow. I decided that I had done all that I had been put on this earth to do, and I went to bed the night before my 30th praying to God that I was done, He could take me now.

Here I am 31 years later. I went on to graduate from college, get married and widowed, have a successful career, retire and go on to work in a rewarding job for another 5 years before retiring again.

I am happy to continue to live each day to the fullest and enjoy all that God has to offer in my life.

I find it so interesting that as children we can't wait for that next birthday, many times saying we are 6&1/2 or whatever. As we age we don't usually add to our age. I quess 65 made me stop & think, but since I am still healthy it doesn't bother to be over that now. What amazes me is that it feels like my children are catching up in age, but I don't really feel that much older. Tell your young grandchildren your age & watch their faces! Each age has its pros & cons, look for pros.

6 months before the 60 birthday, I started falling apart physically and I said I refuse to get up out of bed on the day I turned 60. 60 came and went and I did get up and had a wonderful day. Since turning 60 I have been told to wear oxygen when up and moving about and had surgery on my arm and shoulder. I have also had 2 great grand sons who light up my life. 60 is a great age.

I thought 30 was supposed to be bad, then 40 & 50 - still not so bad - number wise - health not earth shattering either, except for the gradual weight gain. But when 60 started approaching - it was PANIC/ANXIETY time!! This past year was just traumatic!!! Now 61 is around the corner and I'm still dealing with 60 and hoping to be more fit - mentally, physically and emotionally to get into and beyond this decade. Now, lately, it's eternally on my mind. I haven't anything good to say about it though I am greatful for everything else in my life.

I do not focus on the numbers, but how I am feeling and I must say that I have been blessed with a God fearing man and three handsome, charismatic, productive young men. I take each birthday as a blessing and look forward to what God has in store for me.

Twenty-five was hard because it was 1/4 a century. It just FELT old. I didn't really struggle again until I turned 40 and my mother and sister gave me 40 black balloons at the restaurant, my husband had a party, etc for me.

I did get even with my hubby and sister and threw surprise parties for both inviting 100-200 of their nearest and dearest friends.

My marriage wasn't good and I was struggling with fitness. I guess 40 was a hard age.

When I turned 50, I had changed some things in my life and was stronger, younger, and single. A lot of the stress that marked 40 was gone and I felt great! I guess my goal is to glide into the next decade healthier than ever.

Yes, men do go through the same thing. For me 50 was the toughest. I got my first correspondance from AARP when I just turned 49. It upset me so bad that I ripped it up in little pieces and threw it away without opening it. I just turned 61 last month. That wasn't bad. I still feel a lot younger than I am. I decided to lose the weight because I'm not getting any younger and I would like to be around for awhile.

Interesting topic, 49 was like oh no! 50 is next. and truly 50 was my hardest. My marriage was dying a slow death for a few years, and definitely headed for divorce so I'm sure that added a lot to the mix. I've been on and off the diet roller coaster and the emotional heavies ever since. I turned 57 at last Thanksgiving time, and honestly I am determined to make my goals and be healthy by 58.

God bless everyone!

Hi Everyone,
I turned 50 this past August and it was the most difficult Birthday ever. I thought 30 or 40 would be hard but it was no biggie. Turning 50....wow. I don't feel 50 in my head. I wonder if men have trouble with truning a particular age? With all this weight on me my body feels way older. I think turning 50 was a motivator for me to get this weight off. At least my hair isn't gray...well not yet anyways. I want to be active and keep doing the things I love. Which is hard when you have 80+ lbs on your frame. I love to scuba dive, snorkle, Kayack but haven't been able to do any of those things for a while now. I like to go for long walks and can't even do that without pain. So I am on a mission to get this weight off me so I can be active and play with my kids and do all the things I love to do. I've decided my 50's and 60's God Willing, will be a new me and lots of activities I haven't been able to do for years!
