April 24, 2019 / By Aneta Question:
I had a rapid weight gain due to thyroid problems. It left stretchmarks on my stomach. How can I get rid of them as I lose weight?

you shouldnt be embarassed about this.
although trying cocoa butter helps.
i highly suggest palmer's cocoa butter
it helps get rid of stretch marks.
:) good luck
While I don't have the answers of how to get rid of them and lose weight, etc.. I would like to make a comment anyway...
You should in NO way be embarrassed by it. There is nothing wrong with it. I understand that the "norm" is for a man to be a certain size, have no gut and a hard chest and all that baloney.. BUT what is important to remember.. is that it's not the outside that counts.. it's the inside.. And if people think differently of you because of the outside.. let me tell you.. They're not good enough for you :)
People in this wold put FAR too much emphasis on the physical looks of people.. Now, of course, there has to be attraction between people when they fall in love, etc.. and sometimes that will involve the outside.. but even then, when someone loves the inside.. they will love the outside..
My point is .. You are you.. You need not conform to other peoples standards of what you should or shouldn't look like. You should do what makes you happy.. Besides, it was a medical condition that caused this.. There's no excuse for anyone to make any remarks about it!
Of course, you want to be healthy and if it's affecting your health, you will want to do something about it.. But if you feel good on the inside about yourself.. Then don't worry what others think! :)
You shouldn't be embarrased. A LOT of people have stretchmarks... but there's really no way to get rid of 'em. Your best bet is to use cocoa butter to smooth and tighten the appearance.
No of course not. people look past our flaws/ if they can't you shouldn't be interested in that type of shallow person!
