I was in denial... but I am now 30! So it's time to accept it and move on.. and into this group!

A little about me? I just moved halfway across the country with my bf of 10 years, we moved here for a career opportunity for him, and I have family here so it's been a pretty good move. Although come back to me on this in 1-2 months when winter has hit - we moved from Vancouver where it's very mild to Winnipeg where its very cold! I am taking this opportunity (I am working less, not willingly but trying to be positive!) to give it back to myself, and get this weight off! I have lost 14 pounds so far, with *just* 91 pounds to go! ;)

I look forward to getting to know you all! :)

I'm 29 but SHUSH, don't tell anyone! I've got way more in common with these ladies than with the college-aged kids, though :)

Don't worry, I'm also 29 and came here for the same reasons ;)

Denial...heh. My little sister just turned 30 today. I think I will have a harder time with 40, myself. :) Welcome!!

Hi SwimGirl! I'm 31 and had the same sense of denial... I think we all go through it :) Winnipeg *is* cold! I visited there 2 years ago in, I think, December for work. My first impression was the cab ride from the airport to the hotel... I dont think the cab driver ever *really* stopped at any red lights or stop signs, we just seemed slide into place because all of the roads were covered in snow... a little scary at first for sure!

Thanks gals for all the replies!

I definitely had next to nothing in common with 20-somethings, so hopefully I fit in here :) And as long I'm not the only one in denial.. heh ;)

lynnyloo - I've noticed that the cab drivers are terrible, one almost ran me over the other day! Another one pulled over, so I went around, and he pulled out forcing me into oncoming traffic. This city just hasn't mastered the idea of driving! :lol:

I am new to this group too- but I WISH I was still 29! Ha!!

I think this seems like a great place for support.

Hmmm....maybe I should migrate too. I will be 30 in 3 weeks but I feel so in between. Definitely past college but I don't have kids...
