I’m a 48 year old mother of three – all grown up now, aged 27, 25 and 21. I was always slim in my twenties but after giving birth to my third child at 27 I never got my figure back. I really hate my middle area i.e. tum and bum. I don’t look too bad clothed but am really self conscious of my less than perfect body. I imagine my partner admiring all the gorgeous girls in magazines and on film and know I cannot compare. I don’t let this affect my life too much but hate showing off my body in the summer months when it is much harder to hide inside my clothes. What’s more, all those gorgeous girls are out in force showing off their bodies in really skimpy clothes. This is when I feel particularly bad.
