I'm sorry ladies, I'm having a really bad day. I needed some insight from other mom's who know what this feels like, not my single childless friends who think they know it all. Have you ever just not cared? About how you look or just plain tired of trying to be someone you'd like to be but CAN'T? I'm 21 and I just feel so..sad. I'm tired of trying to loose the baby weight for no reason. I have no loss date,or target outfit. No event or reason to look like I used to. I'm so tired of trying to fit in with my friends, of trying having the latest fashions, of trying to even get my hair done. There is no point anymore in trying to be 21 . My SO works out at camp and is gone so who cares if I'm this slobby, fat mess? My daughter could careless what I look like.I just want to know if any other mom's feel this way too.
It's like I've lost the will to be anything other than what I'am now.

Well I think its a good and bad thing. You just have to find your balance. Its great to not care about frivolous issues like designer clothes and what you have one. But you should still care about your health and how you feel overall. Its probably time to get some new, more mature friends though. Look for some moms your age who have children. Plus, I think its important to show your child that mommy takes care of herself, but doesn't feel the need to be perfect. Its all about the balance mama. :)

I'm 28 and I'm in good shape health wise. I could loose 10 lbs but I'm not really trying. Before I was pregnant I had a ripped bikini body and I was completely self conscious, always working out and watching what I ate. Now I'm very healthy...I have a softer body that carried and is still BFing my DD at 8mos and I've never been prouder of my body. I wouldn't change a thing. It really is freeing when you let go of superficial things and clearly see whats important to you.
