I think my problem is that I am living too much in the past. I am only 5'2 and have always been little, slim and light. In my younger days (I am now 40) I could eat what ever I liked and always stayed slim.
So age, and having 3 kids in quick succession have really aged me and my appearance has suffered. Because we have been trying for another baby for close to 2 yrs I have really not bothered about the weight I have put on, and I now look in the mirror and really know that I have suffered the consequences. I was always one to be able to, say walk into a club and the guys would look at me (pls don't think that sounds snobby), but now because I am older and with a few more lines on my face and wobbly bits
that wouldn't happen right now. So partly my thing is from age, childbirth and just general wear and tear.
I find it hard to stop living in the past and accepting that I am getting older and don't look as young as I did before. But with my fitness routine going now, if I can get fit and healthy, I really think that will make a big difference. Everyone gets older, at some point
Best wishes to you all.
