Used The Baby Weight Excuse For Wayyyy Too Long!!!

I am to the point that I am disgusted with myself.  I had a baby 4 years ago and am steadily gaining weight!!!  Until I had a baby I was always rail thin.  I never had to worry about what I ate, and I certainly didn't have to exercise.  Now I'm having a hard time and it seems like no matter what I eat or don't eat, I am slowly getting bigger and bigger.  I am only 5'2" and I now weight 131!!!  Before I had my son, I weighed 105.  I know some of you are probably thinking that I still don't weigh a lot but I am not happy or comfortable with my body any longer.  I need to get motivated to exercise and have some self control around food.   I'm at my wits end and maybe talking to other people that are struggling will help.   Since I've never had to worry about food growing up...I'm having a real problem controlling what I eat!   I LOVE food and having a toddler and some junk food in the house...I feel like I can't get away!!!  I'm also a stay at home mom  that lives in a very small town and am having a hard time with finding time to exercise or jog or something!!!!  I have a hard time looking at pictures of myself looks like a totally different person!  I think to myself...that can't be me!
