I've been having the worst self-image issues over the last 4-5 months. I had my second baby in January '05 and after an awesome initial weight loss where I got down to 7 pounds below pre-pregnancy weight, my weight has gone back up and then some! I see it mostly in the inner tube of fat around my waist, and in my upper arms. I used to have an itty bitty waist...that was my defining feature. But now I'm up-and-down and flabby. Problem is, I work and I have two kids under 4. I AM EXHAUSTED every day. After work, I have no time to do anything other than the bare essentials like cooking and washing dishes. My house is otherwise a mess. I know I should be making time for myself and squeezing in a workout and eating less crap (damn those coworkers for constantly bringing in chocolate and cookies!). But I just can't get motivated to make those lifestyle changes. It seems so intimidating and, well, unappealing. At the same time, I'm hating how I can't fit into my jeans anymore. My love life with DH has taken a hit too...I don't feel sexy or attractive anymore. How do I snap out of this???? Thank you for any advice.
