Ah honey don’t stress, they’re quite normal and they will fade. But to be honest they won’t ever go away.  Try plamers coco butter on them it will help fade them a bit. When you have  a bit of a tan they will be less noticeable as well.

 

 I think most women have them somewhere on their body after puberty, I have stretch marks on my thighs, hips and boobs and they really don’t bother me at all.  Sometimes I’ll get the odd new one appear if I’ve put on weight and yeah they do take ages to fade but they will. I’m about a US size 8 so not massively overweight, i think i’m probably quite an average size so you’ll probably find most women will have them somewhere. You probably don’t realise how normal and common they are because you only ever see women in magazines who are airbrushed beyond recognition. I’ll bet even the skinny models have them before they’re airbrushed away!

Although they’re really noticeable to you they won’t be to other people.  And even if someone does notice stretch marks they’re not going to bat an eyelid because that’s just how most women look.

Congrats on being happier and healthier now.
