UGH..STRETCH MARKS!

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Ok, so my bikini days have LONNNGGG been gone, but in the back of my mind, I was still kinda' HOPING that I would be able to wear one one day after I met my goal size/weight...ya know, just to SHOW OFF! emoticon

PSHHH..Yeah RIGHT..not with all of these stretch marks everywhere...My tummy is a CERTIFIED STRIA PLANET! emoticon Sometimes, I hate to even workout in a sportsbra..even when I'm alone in the house..

Nothing seems to make them go away or even fade just a little, and I get really embarrassed if my husband sees my stomach, so I really try to keep it covered as much as possible. He acts like it doesn't bother him, but I can't stand to look at my stomach sometimes, so I KNOW he's GOT to be thinking "WTF" in the back of his mind.

Although my tummy is not as big as it once was, there's just so many stretch marks that, to me, it's very unattractive..I wonder if there are any other treatments out there or am I just stuck with my tummy like this?? emoticon

    OMG.... now you know I feel the same way you do! I just hope one day they will come out with something that will take them completely away! I've even bought this Strivectin cream for $130 and it has help some but not as much as I thought it should've with the price I paid for it. Hopefully one day we will get use to things and feel so comfortable that we can say oh well... I love my stomach anyways. Not sure when that will happen but it's just a hope and a dream :)

    since we cant get rid of it I have learned to embrace my battle wounds aka stretchmarks. What it took for us to get them Im sure we wouldnt change it for the world.

    Can't really do anything about them, I have them all over too, still looking for the solution.

    Hey ladies - have you tried massaging oils in the stretch mark areas? I started with Vitamin E, but I'm using castor oil now. (trying to stick with natural ingredients) I have noticed a HUGE difference. I had a baby almost 2 years ago now and I was one of the unlucky ones that got branded with a band of stretchies all on my belly - I heard they fade, but won't go away. The oils seem to be reducing them pretty significantly. Hope this helps and hope it works for you too!

    Looking for the same thing, i have some stretch marks on my chest if you know what i mean lol, because b4 i lost weight they where bigger, so now they are smaller but with the marks and although it doesnt show exageradamente i still see them and i want them gone too. I have a bit to in my thigh. Im looking for treatments too, if i find anything i'll let you. Let me know if u find something.

    On another note, my friend, remember you are still beautiful and your husband loves you the way you are! :)
