What causes loss of sexual drive?

Hi I am 28 and I have struggled with weight issues most of my life. I know that I have to do something about my weight to help with my really low libido but in order to not diminish my husband anymore than I am now with my lack of sexual drive I am wondering if there are natural supplements that might help in the meantime. I have learned that talking myself into wanting sex just does not work. I also know that after 10 years I still love my husband and am attrracted to him but I dont seem to be attracted to myself.
