Need to accept my current body shape but it's hard

I've been overweight for most of my life. That is until 3 years ago when I decided to do something about it and lost 4st.

I had a baby 9 months ago and I'm still lighter than most of my life. I try to be sensible with my diet (proper diet is a bit of a no no at home because my husband thinks I tend to not eat and he's more or less right) so I mostly focus on exercise.

It's all good as I'm a "small" size for my height but given the type of exercise I've been doing my thighs and butt have become "perkier". My husband has always had a thing for my butt so he's delighted but I don't like the look. I feel like I feel shorter/bigger.

I know running will slim me down but with a baby and work I've only got homebased routines that haven't given the desired results. I'm struggling to get to terms with how I look I know it's not permanent. I'm strong and healthy and that's what matters but I'm always paranoid I'll get fat again one day.
