30 is NOT the new 20!

I hate it when people say 30 is the new 20.  I mean I am 30 years old and def. don't feel 20.  I am more tired, have less energy and don't quite look like I did when I was 20,  Who agrees/disagrees?  And if you do feel 20 even though you are in your 30's, what's your secret?

Im only 27 but my guess is that not having kids is the secret : ) That or having enough money to spend on the great skin products

I will be 25 on sat.  and don't feel anything close to 20.  I feel more like 35.  So I do not agree.

Oh boy am I right there with ya!  I remember I hid on my 30th birthday.  I read somewhere that somebody told a lady on her 30th birthday not to worry so much and enjoy her day, that next year will be worse than this one.  Why?  'Cause then you'll be in your 30's.............  Greeeeat.  *lol*

I'm not quite 30 yet but after having 2 kids I oh so don't feel 20 anymore. Also, I'd like to add that my body looks like a pic out of a National Geo mag....not good.




The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people don't care that you don't have any tattoos.

i'm the other way around.  i'm 25 but feel 35.  why?  because being in the army ages you, kinda like dog years.  i think you have to add at least 3 years to your age for every year you were in the army, lol.

I am going on 29 very soon, and I have to say that I think look better than I did when I was 20. Having kids actually worked for me. Before I had kids, I was a size 0. Now I am a 2 and I feel better with a little extra weight..finally. I am tired alot though.

i feel young... might not look like i am, but in my heart i am... gotta keep the child inside you alive... i joined a gym to help boost my energy.  its my time away from my man and lil man... it helps so much, i am a motivated person, i get tired sometimes too, but damn when i was 20 i was tired all the time, i worked two jobs, school, etc etc, and now that im almost 35, i still feel like im 25, it helps to have positive people around you ... that is what helps me.. good luck...
