i need to stop imagining scenarios in my head that have a -2% chance of actually happening it’s becoming a problem
Today I was out walking in short shorts, and I heard some girls whisper as they walked by. ‘Ugh, why would she even wear shorts if they are gonna show off her gross stretch marks?’ Hearing things like this makes me so angry.
Let me clarify that my stretch marks are not gross. They are little stripes on my skin that my loving boyfriend cannot seem to stop kissing or running his fingers over.
Everyday I look at them covering my thighs and bum, all I can think of is how I have now lost the weight that I had once gained so quickly, shedding it off with eating better and exercise.
Please, anyone, when you see someone out walking or doing exercise and they have stretch marks on them, don’t make fun of them.
Stretch marks are not something to look down upon. They do not always occur on people who have gained weight. People get them from gaining muscle too quickly as well, and losing weight too fast. They are not ugly. They are not ‘gross.’ They are a sign of growth.This is beautiful.
It’s true, this happened to me because I have stretch marks too, from losing 6kg in 3 weeks through crash-diets and excessive swim training. I finally got on the team I tried out for, and now I’m eating more healthily. Also, my skin is not naturally flexible, so that doesn’t help. It’s a natural thing, and happens also when you’re pregnant. <br/>Don’t judge someone for changing their body size, from bigger to smaller, or vice versa. It’s not fair, and unkind.
