  • Could I look better? Of course. However, I haven't changed my habits that much. I still put on make up, fix my hair (sometimes curls sometimes I straighten it), get dressed up, etc...of course I work so I kind of have to...but even when I stay home (vacation, holidays, etc.) I do all of this. DH works all day with women who take care of themselves and look nice. Why would he want to come home to a woman that's a mess (he would still come home, no doubt but why shoudl he have to?). He's the man I love and who loves me. Why would I dress up for anyone if not for him?

  • Oh most def. My youngest is 6. IM a good 40 lbs heavier then I was when I got preg. with her. I cannot remember the last time I went shopping for "wants and not absolute needs" for myself. Its a toss up every day to curl my hair or just pull it back in a pony tail. Slip on sweats and work out pants are much easier and faster to manage then jeans and a nice Yup My goshhhhhhh Ive turned into my MOTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • had my son and got married- and not completely let myself go but if im not going anywhere that day i'll pull my hair up and stay in pj's/comfy clothes all day. I don't do my hair and stuff just for hubby unless i'm in that kind of mood- I still have baby weight i want to lose though but i'm not fat or anything just not as skinny as i was..

  • So funny because I am the same way. My youngest is 7 and I really need to lose about 40 lbs as well. I always say this is the day I am going to start and then I don't feel like it. Not only that it is so cold here right now I don't even feel like taking the kids to school let a lone getting up to go to the gym.

  • I've been working for 2 years (since having my last) to get into some sort of shape and be healthier. So, no...I've not let myself go.

    However...I've not worked as hard as I could/should have, either! lol But I'm getting there! (I had 85lbs to lose, I now have 23)

  • No, I've always been this low maintenance.


    Answer by Pnukey at 9:24 AM on Feb. 5, 2009

  • No, I work and deal with people every day so I feel like I need to look good.
