The only thing I can do at least for myself to boost self-esteem is to keep my weight under 95 lbs. I am 5’1″ in height and currently weighs 93 or sometimes 92.8 in the mornings. I am happy with that but I wish I can do more in my midsection. Although it is not bulging but it is soft like jelly.
I tried some abs exercises weeks ago and stopped due to the lack of energy at the end of the day and busy schedule juggling my household chores, motherhood, online tasks and couponing. I almost have no energy left to do that anymore. I know I can do it if I don’t have any excuses but geeezzz I look skinny compared to those who got two children just like me. Anyway, I am happy of my current weight, if I lose some more pounds… that would be great too.
