All the woman over 29

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
SO I turn 29 tomorrow

I want to know is it true that the closer to 30 things start to, um, shall I say start heading south? I am not looking forward to it. This is the last year of my 20's. They were rough but over all I had fun. Is there anything I should start doing now to get ready for the big 3-0? My DH is 38 and he says its no big deal but he is a guy. Things don't start changing on them till closer to 40.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHhHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
I don't want to get older

Nah, I don't think so.
If you take care of yourself, your body will take care of you
Only thing I noticed was a drop in my metabolism, but not until 35.

And Happy Birthday

Well I have already stopped eating junk food and try to walk regularly. The good thing is my new job is anly about a mile away so I can walk to work, plus its a grocery strore and it requires a lot of lifting and oving so I will get a work out at work too.

Thank you Arlyn

Happy Birthday!

I'll be turning 30 in less than a month and must say this is feeling like the most dreaded of all thus far. A new decade just feels so...old, but I'm really trying to see it as just an irrelevant number. I'm really finding myself more focused on the accomplishments of my life..or lack thereof, rather.

In reference to your question, this is so not true! This is a great time in our lives to take a look at our lifestyles to be sure we're incorpating such things as exercise and a healthy diet. I also feel our emotional and spiritual health are reflected in our physical appearance, so these are vitally important aspects to consider, as well. Thank you for asking this, if nothing else, I really needed this peptalk, too!

Thank you for your comment dawnofsierra.

I have recently started a new spiritual growth thing. I think that has helped me in a lot of ways. I know I will start to reflect more on what mistakes I made in the last 9 years and how they helped me prepair for the future.

On a side note, in referance to the quiting smoking thread. I am a smoker and always said I would stop by 30. So this is the last year of doing things that are bad for me.

best wishes KarmasMom! and fear not your age! I am 34 and I don't even think about my age. Its just another day, another year. Its what you do within the time that makes life what it is and also how you feel about yourself. If you worry about whats around the corner you won't appreciate what you HAVE right now! allow the child within yourself time to play, kick leaves in the fall, make snow angels in the winter, pick flowers in the spring and run through sprinklers in the summer. Stay young at heart and have a Happy Birthday

THank you for the kind words Blueyes.

I do try to do that because you are right, you are only as old as you feel. I still collect Barbie dolls. Granted now I can get the really nice ones that I can't play with but they remind me of when I was a little girl and it helps. If I lived somewhere where there was snow I would be all ovver the smow angels but in SoCal we don't really get seasons at all.

I just tend to get all reflective and emotional around my birthday. When I turned 15 I cried because I was half way to 30. Now 30 is right around the corner

No, so far everything is staying where it should

As Arlyn said the only thing i really noticed was a slow down in metabolism and, unfortunately, a tendency to put a few pounds on

So best wishes for today

I am 38 today and I have never felt better about myself. My thirties have just been the best time. Through out all that has gone on in the last eight years good (marriage, new home) and bad (lost a business, family illnesses) I have been able to handle it with so much more grace and humor. Many of my older female friend say it just keeps getting better. I want to live like that loving every phase of my life.

Don't be so worried about turning 30 - truth is, it's all over after 25! So your best years are already behind you!
Just kidding, like the others, I have found life generally gets better with age.
And really, it's pointless to worry about aging as it's inevitable and natural and happens to everyone- unless they die young and that would really suck a whole lot more than a few extra pounds and a wrinkle or two.

As someone who has been 30 for 18 yrs now I thought 30 was a tough milestone. 40 was a breeze!! I do agree about the metabolism starting to slow down a bit in the 30's. You just have to watch the amt of "junk food" you eat and "alcohol" you drink!! Make sure you stay active. Also pay attention to the moisture content of your skin and "tanning" I think you can notice people in their late 30's at did lots of tanning earlier in their life at this time.
Don't think about what you have and haven't done with your life yet-I am making a major career/lifestyle change at age 48!!!
Take care and have a wonderful birthday.

Happy Birthday today.. I am 30 so far things are the same. Ok well after 1st son things went south I was 21 since everything is in position still.

I am 48 years old and nothing is where it was, 20 years ago. My middle is a bit soft and I have stretch marks (my first baby weighed 10 lbs). When I smile, there are lines around my eyes. If I don't keep up with the hair color, grey grows in, at my temples.

There are two cute little girls, who know me as the woman who can be counted on, for a hug, chocolate and a new pair of pretty shoes. They leave sweet, sticky kisses on my cheeks.

There's a grey-haired, slightly chubby man, who's eyes light up, when he sees me and will spend hours talking to me and actually LISTENING to what I say.

I wouldn't trade any of those, for a toned, skinny body and my (formerly) golden blonde hair.

please you guys!!! I just turned 50. I loved my 30's. I finally felt like a adult. Happy birthday. Don't fret, enjoy your life. If you keep worrying about how old you are you can't appreciate the present. Live in the moment. After all what's the alternative

Congratulations on being an elder, CKATZ! I get to join the club when I turn 50 this November! I agree with CKATZ that the most important thing is to enjoy the moment - it seems to keep one young! In fact, I didn't notice any real changes until my auto accident when I was 43, and I could no longer wait tables, rockclimb, ride horses, jog, etc. I think that the 30s are a great age to be - I had the time of my life!! So, enjoy your birthday & live it up!!

I turned 29 on Saturday and I have been telling myself that this is my last year of my twenties, enjoy it. I am soooooooooo upset, though. Have no desire whatsoever to become 30. Its depressing as hell!! I hear the ticking of the biological clock in the background...

I couldn't agree more! Lifes too short to be thinking about getting older. I lost a school friend when we were both in our 30's and i know she would love to be here right now.

At the end of the day, unless your prepared to pay for plastic surgery, botox etc... to stay looking younger, father time will win all the way!
