Does my butt look f(l)at in these?

I don't always have the same issues as my body as some of the other girls. I don't understand when someone says "you have no reason to be worried about your body". We all have our reasons to be insecure. I have a flat butt. I have more loose skin and fat around my mid section and weigh more than I ever have before, other than being pregnant with the boys. I was not blessed with nice complexion. My hair today is so much different (curly and crazy) than it was 10 years ago, before I had babies and I don't know what to do with it. I have insecurities. I look in the mirror and see flaws. I also see the nice things... don't get me wrong. On the days when I don't feel good about me though, its hard to see what I've been blessed with.

I'm not a clothes hog. I buy easy fitting cheap clothes. I know I should buy quality but I feel mommy guilt and know I should be spending $$ on the kids and their clothes. I buy my clothes at Target and Old Navy and Murvyn's, when I buy them I buy them on clearance or when there is a great deal. I have this issue with inheriting clothes from friends. Most of the time they don't really fit. Wow I should send this blog onto Clinton and Stacey and maybe they'll put me on the show (that is serious invite for anyone to nominate me... hint hint). Anyhow I need clothes bad. I have 2 pair of jeans that fit me. 2, two, that is sad. I have two pair of capris that are not even close to flattering. I have one pair of jean shorts my mom bought me to take on my honeymoon, 9 years ago. I have tank tops, Old Navy tank tops in 4 different colors. I have t-shirts, loose fitting that I got at the AWBC walks and the Relay for Life and such. I have 5 pairs of $9 socks for running but only cheap white socks for any other time. I have running shoes, 2 pair of Fat Baby boots in two different colors and old navy flip flops.

Over at 5 Minutes for Mom (I spend much more than 5 minutes over there) they posted a blog about the perfect jeans for mom. Sometimes that feels like trying to find the Holy Grail. I had convinced myself that if they existed then I couldn't afford them anyway. After checking out the website at True Jeans and with a little work getting your measurements at home, I might even be able to afford a decent, good fitting pair of jeans. Now to get myself out of these over sized sweatshirts? Problem is that I LOVE THEM! Although I know they are doing nothing for my style. Who am I kidding? I have no style.

Hey, I am ALL about ghetto shopping...I love the ON, the Ross, and the TJ Maxx! Though, for me, I have the opposite problem from you, I have a ginormous ass...and really long legs, so, the ONE thing that I spend tons of money on is jeans, but that's only because Lucky Jeans are the only ones that will fit over my butt and still be long enough! :)
