Dear Stretchmarks: GO AWAY

Thursday, December 01, 2011

So, I have reached the point in my weight loss where those buggerd stretch marks that earned carrying my darling daughter 8 years ago are starting to wrinkle and sag .....I totally did NOT expect it this early, and i am truly having issues with this. I don't have one or two...or 10, or 30 or 50....I truly looked like a a tiger striped basketball with red and purple stripes! I have pics of it somewhere....

My skin never returned back to normal after having the DD and the subsequent weight gain has NOT helped!!!

What am i gonna do with all the extra skin and scars?? Anyone have any ideas??
I know i am the only one it bothers (the other important people in my life don't seem to be bothered by it at all).....I dont have the money for surgery, and i don't have a Cadillac insurance company who will check the yes button for everything....

    I know what you mean and I also have a scar from a c-section that looks like a butt.

    I definitely feel your pain. I have stretch marks pretty much everywhere since my rapid weight gain after high school. Most are already faded, but they are numerous and don't look all that pretty. It certainly would be nice to do something about them, but as far as I know, apart from surgery, they won't ever go away. :(
