    They ******* suck. I have them on my thighs,

    boobs, and hips. They suck. Like I'm underweight and always have been but I still have them. It doesn't make sense.

    After having two sons at ages 15

    and 17, going from a size 0 to a 8 I definitely earned my share of stretch marks. I am very self conscious about them but recently I've been better about accepting that this is my body and I should be so proud of them since they represent my pregnancy journeys. It's hard but...

    I Have Stretch Marks

    They're really ugly and I wouldn't dare put on a 2 piece. But you know what? That's okay because I love what they represent. They stand for the beautiful 3 year old that I kiss and say good-night to every night before he closes his eyes. I wouldn't trade my stretch marks for...

    Everyone Gets Them

    I am thin, never had weight issues. I've never been pregnant. But I have stretch marks. On my butt and on my thighs and behind my knees. I drink tons of water and try to stay moisturized. It's horribly embarassing. I don't wear shorts or skirts and I never wear a bathing suit. No...

    Tons Of Them

    Anyone who looks at my pics can tell I have tons of them. I mean I'm fairly fat so it isn't surprising.

    I have stretch marks on my arms

    and my boobs and I absolutely hate it! I want to get rid of it but have no idea how to. I'm 17 and it affects the kind of clothes that I wear and social interactions since I see people's eyes zoning in on them everytime I talk to them.

    I hate them too but over the years they have

    become a part of me , they don't define who I am and it's just a small part of my body , and it's just marks at the end of the day really.... Shouldn't the right guy love me for ALL of me , even with all my imperfections? Because that's what I will do for him, love him for him...

    Maybe

    Since I have been gaining weight, I have noticed these weird lines on my waist. They aren't red or purple.. But they look almost like creases. And they kind of are at an angle to show my overhang. Does anybody know what these things are? I think they might be stretch marks. But I...

    Loads Of Them

    I've got so many that they are literally all over my thighs. Everyone says you only get them if you are fat or pregnant but I'm neither of those. They just appeared when my bum grew and it makes me scared of having sex or going swimming in case people laugh or think it's gross:/
