I’ve always been really underweight most of my life. I met Fiance, became happy and self confident and had great self esteem andddddd….gained 30 pounds. In a year. (Note: I am at a healthy BMI now and am where I am supposed to be for my age/height; I was super underweight before I met him.) So now I’m healthy, and I try! to eat right, and I am beginning to work out a little each day….but I have stretch marks on the outside of both hips and the inside of both legs. They’re red and very visible (to me, anyway) and I don’t know what to do! They’re supposed to fade, right? But they’ve been bright red for 6 months now and I haven’t gained any more weight since then!
Does anyone else have them? Does it bother you?
I wouldn’t care if we weren’t honeymooning in the Virgin Islands next June….and if I didn’t always feel so self-concious when Fiance tries to, well, you know. ;P
When we met, I became so happy. I was confident and actually ate because I was so comfortable around him. Now, the same thing that has made me happy has also made me LOSE self confidence again. UGH!
I’ve heard that creams don’t really work, and they have to just ‘fade in time’ but they’ve been bright red-purple for 5-6 months now and haven’t faded at all! In fact, they’ve gotten longer and bigger…and I stopped gaining weight! :/
