Ive always had issues with self confidence and was just beginning to accept myself the way I was when low and behold i found I was pregnant. After having my DS 9 months ago I have been struggling again with my body. On top of old securities I can now add stretch marks, and flab to the list. Doesn't help when I call my dad to catch up (he lives in tx I live in va) and the only thing he's concerned about is if I'm excersize and how much weight I've lost. I've lost 35 of the 45 lbs from pregnancy but my father clearly states "well, that's just not enough" and he commends my DH for in his words "he's a great husband, who knew he'd still love u after having gotten so much.. bigger." Wtf? I know, I'm married n I have my own child yet I'm still afraid and hurt by my own father. Working on getting over this, but I'm having so much trouble, I work one job full time, another part time, and I can't do much more than 3 30 minute exercises in the morning and between jobs. Any tips, or advise? I eat maybe once a day.cause I just don't have time to eat either...Answer Question

Hun, are going to diet and exercise do it for you and no one else, the benefits are outstanding and not just physical but emotional too. Your dad I am sure does not mean to hurt you but help you. It is hard it is very hard, but if you put up a sensible plan in place and it can be done, but you got to do it for you. 30 minutes of exercise every morning is great, if you are stuck then work on your eating habits to help loose weight, you can do this!
