anjy99, I'm so sorry to read this. I haven't had the c-sections, so I'm not going to pretend to relate on those issues, but I have mentioned on here before that I struggle with my body image now that I've lost the weight. I'm just about to turn 36 and I'm not stupid enough to think that I would have revealed a bikini model body after being overweight my whole life, but it's still a bit shocking when I see myself naked. I seriously just stop and stare sometimes and think "What have I done to myself"?
HOWEVER, I feel you and I are young enough that time and weight training will resolve the issues with the saggy thighs, and good sturdy undergarments are available for the saggy tummy problems. (And for me, good padded bras give me the curves that breastfeeding three babies and a 60 lb weight loss took away). Looking good when dressed is a big deal and not something I could pull off when overweight. So I delight in that.
