Hello everyone! My daughter is going to be 7 weeks old and I am going nuts not having the sleep that I use to and have the energy that i use to. I feel great otherwise except for my weight, I have gained like 30 lbs and I hate it because i dont want to do anything in my house. My boyfriend has 2 older kids that live with us and 2 younger ones that live with their mother. I feel better and more in control when the two younger kids r here with us, ( we have them everyother week) and feel so drained when we have the older ones. Is this normal? The two older ones r 16 (TREVOR, BOY0 and 13 (HAILEY, GIRL). It's like i want no part of the 13 year old that is always nasty to me and other people and i Dont want her anywhere near my daughter. My boyfriend doesnt know what to do with her anymore and it is hard because we use to be buddies when her father and i started going out ( 3 years ago) but now its like she is jealous of me and the baby. Her birth mother Died when she was 1 1/2 years old and doesnt really know anyone as her mother so to speak expect for my boyfriends ex-wife who her and her brother both HATE her. So when i moved in they took to me really quick and we all got along but trevor loves his lil sister and helps out more then anything. He looks foward to helping me with her Feeding her and holding her! BUt to be honest I dont want her by her at all!! Now the two younger ones LOVE HER TO DEATH!!! Will help me with everything around the house when they come, no questions asked.

So i guess my question is: Why do i feel so depressed around the older kids that we have all the time? Is that normal? I want to lose weight so bad but have no energy to do so, all I want to do is eat still and I want to walk but it is cold out. Is there any excercise's out there that i can do without really trying? Or is there any real encentives that will help me not be depressed anymore to want to CLEAN, or do stuff around the house? or even just be my old self?


Thanky ou melanie

As far as exercises that work....I find that Jilliam Michaels and Billy Blanks are good motivators. As far as being motivated...You have to want to get up and lose the weight. You need to motivate yourself! I know that for myself, I felt about the same way that you did after I had my first son. As sad as it might sound, I didn't want to have anything to do with him for quite awhile, and then my husband made me go to the doctor's and he put me on a antidepressant. It took about 2 weeks for it to take full effect, but when it finally did, I felt like a million bucks. I felt like doing things around the house, wanting to leave the house, etc....I felt like Super Mom. Nothing could hold me down! Maybe you should consider making an appointment to either talk toa professional or your Primary Care Docotr. Hope this helps!
