Default car feels slower

When i fist got my accord it had a decent kick to it when i would accelerate on the highway but now it feels more like a 2 yr old pulling you back. My friends have told me that its prolly my belt for my vtec is getting stretched dued to over time or so. I also have another problem now when im accelerating steadly at about 3000-3500 rpms as soon as my car goes from 2nd to 3rd gear it jerks like my cousin's shifting skills on his car.

Umm...VTEC is engaged/disengaged with a locking pin on the camshaft actuated by oil pressure...there is no belt for it.
