    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.

    Yeah. It happens when you get pregnant

    and gain a bunch of weight. It sucks, but whatever.

    I feel that stretch marks tell some story about

    yourself. During my teenage years, I lost a lot of weight. I was extremely chubby, I was never active. At 16, I started going to the gym, and from then I lost a lot of weight. Stretch marks developed since then and haven't done anything to get rid of them. Maybe I should do...

    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.

    Okay, so I'm a skinny person

    but I have a big butt so I have a lot of stretch marks on my butt and then on my outer thighs because I don't have to skinny of legs. I'm always concerned that I'm not attractive and that if I shows a stretch mark someone will judge. But my worst stretch mark is one that is...

    I have some nice stretch marks on my flabby ***.

    And they literally ruined my life,

    and I'm a darker complexion and you can see these white lines everywhere literally all over my body. My boobs, ***, thighs and even mad calves! There I hate them the most, I haven't wrote dress, shorts, or skirts in over seven years. I won't have sex or go out in the summer...

    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.. :)

    shaming someone for something they can't change

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

    Get over it. Four pregnancies,

    including twins, and I'm only 5'1" - something had to give. I also used to weigh twice as much as I do now. I'm half of me. They showed up when I was ten, I went through a massive growth spurt in one summer and they were on my breasts and thighs even as a skinny kid. Some of us...

    I have stretch marks all over my body-

    literally...all over my stomach, hips, boobs, back of my legs, thighs, upper arms & butt. I've been losing weight but it seems like they're getting worse not better. I've had them since I was young & I don't think it's fair!!!!! I'm not as big as a lot of other people I see that...

    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 :(

    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.

    So I got my stretchmarks

    when I was 12 and I have always been so subconscious about them.. I have them all over my legs and with years I got more on my knees, back of knees, thighs, butt. So I have tried a million things and I can say they are a lot less noticeable but still there.. I have always...

    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've never been pregnant before

    and I have stretch marks. I have them on my hips and my boobs. And very little on my legs(most people don't notice them because they blend in with me skin tone). I got them when I was about 12 or 13 years old. When there are fresh they are very easy to get rid of and at the time...

    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...
