    I have mine from a violent back injury

    that tore at my hips, shoulders and groin. I have permanent stretch marks and am lucky to be normal again.

    I have them on both of my moobs,

    both of my arms, both sides of my belly and on both of my inner thighs. Although I am still puzzled by how I managed to get them without gaining weight.

    I put on 40 pounds in the past few months

    and consequently I developed angry red stretch marks all over my belly, ***, and legs. I love having a huge belly, but I hate these stretch marks :(

    Rapid Weight Gain Caused Stretch Marks

    You can see stretch marks on my thighs and belly where they have had to accommodate my extra girth.

    I have stretch marks on my breasts,

    thighs, and hips. I didn't get any while I was pregnant but I did get some a year later when I was suffering from depression and gained weight. My boyfriend likes to trace them and I don't feel so self conscious when he does.

    mine are about ten years old in between my bits.

    They raise up in the summer months through sweat and in the winter when cold gets to it. It bothers me a lot when I walk around places I use a cream it helps some of the time. I suffer with great pain with this can't believe how much some days.

    shaming someone for something they can't change

    like their stretch marks or scars accomplishes nothing so why would you want to do it

    I used to be super thin so when I gained all this weight in the past few weeks i must have really stretched myself out 😉

    Well I'm not really ashamed of it,

    they're not cute but they don't bother me. Now of course most of them appear because I'm chubby, but the ones on my hips have been there ever since I was 6, and I was pretty darn skinny then. They vary in shades of red, pink and white, sometimes they bulge out, sometimes they...

    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 started getting my first stretch marks

    when I was a competitive cheerleader. I was 11-12 years old and pretty underweight. When I started gaining muscle so quickly, they came fast. I'm very ashamed of them. I recently started putting on weight as a symptom of a disease that I have and I've noticed a few new ones. I'm...

    I have them on my love handles,

    where pregnant women usually get them, but mine are from pure gluttony. I overindulge at every meal until my belly is stuffed and this constant eating is making me chubbier by the day.. Guess the marks are from my body making room for extra pounds.. :)
