Need BRUTALLY Honest Opinions ASAP!!!
November 12, 2012 at 6:54 PM
I need the kinda honestly that only strangers on the internet can provide. Be honest, even if it's mean I really want the truth!

I've got an interview in the morning. I got ridiculously fat after having my last child (lol, who gains after they have the baby???), so my clothes from when I worked with my older don't really fit. So in the replies I'll post the 2 options I've got. How bad is it?? In the first, the sweater is too bulky, so I'm going to try to find a new one tonight and nude tights might help. The second one I think I need better shoes...
Don't hold back!!

    The shoes. Nothing special, but the 3 places I went to had mostly boots or something a supermodel waking in a fashion show might these were what had to do!

    I think you look great, period! I do like #2.  Need a picture of the new shoes! And I'm sorry your STBXH actions made you doubt yourself - you're a beautiful woman, excellent mother and all around good person (from what i can tell through the internet!) and he's a jackass - remember that.

    I sooooo wish it was just that's wasn't eating right or exercising, because that I could fix! I've been a runner for forever, but for the past 564 days I've run Plus I wear a pedometer and try to hit 10,000 steps not including my steps from my daily run. For the longest time I always had to take the younger 2 in the jogging stroller, so that added to the challenge!
    Yet still I've actually managed to gain. My usual diet I keep to 1500 calories a day, never more than 1800. Well in June I cut it down to 1200, never more than 1400. It did nothing. Did I mention I've also been breastfeeding for over 4 years continuously, close to two of those years tandem?

    So yeah, that's my story. I have pcos and Hashimoto's thyroiditis, so my metabolism is just messed up beyond help I guess :-\

    And seriously it's so much harder to have time to eat well and exercise when you add another kid to your life!! When I only had two kids and was pregnant with Grace I hiked my entire pregnancy. After I had her.... Pffft!! I have no time at all. Of course if she slept it would be a different story!!
