Default I just turned 30 and I no longer want to be big.

In my twenties I ranged from 200-290. In Fact I weighed 290 a couple of months before July 7th when I turned 30. Now that I am 30 I have made it a personal goal to no longer "struggle." I realize now that it's not a struggle if you put your mind to loosing weight and think of it as a fun challenge to get to be healthy as the prize.

I now give myself one year from now to get to 230 that will be a total of sixty pounds. I want to loose healthy and if it happens faster it happens faster but I'm not counting on it and I think that will be its reward in itself.

I have many things against me Fibromyalgia,Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, and I'm on psych meds! I feel though that can no longer be an excuse.

I hope to be up there on the goal chart next year.

I turned 30 last August and I can honestly say, while I wasn't looking forward to turning 30, I have made this the best year of possibly my life. I got so many aspects of my life together this year, I feel accomplished, and more confident and happy. There is just something about that number 30 that finally lit a fire in me.

Here's to making your first year in your 30s great!

It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not.

I'm turning 30 in a couple of weeks and I know where you're coming from. The first half of 29 was particularly hard for me so I've spent the last 6+ months trying to get my weight and health on a good track. It hasn't been easy but every small step we take is a step in the right direction. Hang in there and keep your eyes on the goal! You can do this!

Good luck! I turned 30 earlier this year. it has taken me 5 months into it to really feel able to do something about the things im not happy with. I think you set a reasonable goal, and if you stick with it, you'll achieve it.
Start: 210 on Nov 5
Goal: 160 by Feb 24
Final Goal: 135

Congrats on making the commitment to healthy weight loss! I'm a step behind you--I'm 29 and will be 30 in 10 months. I want to start my 30's healthy. My 30's will not look like my 20's.

I'm 30 and I also can relate to your post. There's something about turning 30 for me that made me want to reevaluate my life and jump-start my diet and exercise plans. Sounds like the same thing happened for you. Good luck on your journey and keep us posted!

I feel so good about myself in my 40s with my weight loss, my fitness level, and my body shape (thanks to exercise) that I wish I hadn't wasted my 30's being fat!

Don't say you hope, say you WILL! You go girl!!

Congrats to you on making positive changes!!

I turned 40 in 2011 and when that January rolled around, I made the same decision for myself and I will tell you...my life has become more joyous, more interesting and more fulfillng than I ever imagined. I'm still working on my last few pounds, but almost every single day, I thank 2011-ME for taking the first step and sticking with it all this time. It's phenomenal to be a normal weight person!

You can do this!

I vowed to not spend my 30s in the emotional and physical upheaval like my 20s! I reached my goal shortly after turning 30 last fall, and I want to spend every minute of this decade feeling great!

There is no better time than now to change your life!

I'm turning 30 relatively soon and it's a pretty big motivator for me to get this weight off, too. Keep posting and reading, you'll get some great insight here.

I started my weight loss journey about 1 1/2 weeks after turning 30. I don't know what exactly clicked, if it was turning 30 or something else but I am so glad I did. I'll be 32 in August and although I am not quite where I would like to be - I am not spending my 30s like I spent my 20s!

You can do this!

Here's to our 30s!
