Strech marks when you lose weight?

My freind said she didn't get strech marks until she lost weight. I thought you can only get them when you gain weight....Am I wrong? I really don't want anymore I have enough from being prego. :/

  • Maybe they just became more noticeable when she lost weight. I know the ones I got from being pregnant did not look as bad on my big pregnant belly as they do now. They seem more prominent to me now

  • I haven't heard of that before. I always thought it was from your skin stretching out.

  • You can get them from losing and gaining muscle mass or any mass in your body period. I got mine on my legs from losing my muscle mass after I had surgery
