How about you...

I was 110 pounds when i got PG and gained 60 pounds. Now i have nasty stretch marks on my legs, stomach, and books. I hate them. And i still weigh the same. No matter how hard i try to lose the weight nothing happens.. Anyone else like this?

Also my husband always tells me i could wear my pants from 4 years ago.. size 1 blah blah blah he makes me sick lol

  • I lost more weight than I gained when i was pregnant. My body looks awesome except for stretch marks. And what's awful is, they look worse with a flat tummy. They werent as bad when i had a little "extra".

    Not fair.

    Theyre not horrible, but i plan on getting pregnant again, and i know they are going to get worse.
    It makes me so upset.

  • How did you lose your weight?

  • With my first, I started at 120 and gained 55 pounds. That hurt! I have stretch marks all around my bottom, waist, legs (like shorts) and stomach. I have them on my tiny boobs. It looks so ridiculous. With my second, I started at 125 and only gained 35 pounds. I guess I just reused my stretch marks from the first pregnancy. I've lost all the weight, but stretch marks on a skinny person look simply foolish.

  • I started out at 130 when i got preg with my first and i gained 35. I lost the weight almost immediately but I praise breastfeeding for that. You lose 1000 calories day just nursing. I started out at 130 again with this one im five months and have only gained 10 so far, we'll see how the rest goes, lol.

  • There are creams that may help your stretch marks. One I use for scars, moisturizer, etc. is called "Kathy Dallas". You can only buy it on line. It is the only thing that has worked and does not break me out. I am told it help stretch marks.

    About the weight, I wish I had the best answer for you. I have tried diets. There is a new one out there. It is pretty pricey and is a two-part thing. You take Acai berry pills and also a colon flusher. I am not sure where you can find it. I got it when I was browsing a wesite called Allrecipies./com

    Good Luck!

  • With my first I weighed 120 when I got prego...I gained 22 pounds and then a month after I had her I only weighed 110. Then with my second I weighed 110 before I got prego and I gained 60 flippin pounds...grrr...its been taking FOREVER to lose the weight, but she's 11.5 months and I'm 118 pounds now. Honestly the best advice I can give very careful doing this...but take a multi vitamin EVERY DAY...and then only eat 1/3 or 1/4 of how much you think you could eat. Try to keep yourself busy so you don't snack and if you do snack...this is hard...but say you want some chips...only eat 5 and then go do something that will get your mind off being hungry and a few minutes later you won't feel hungry anymore after eating just 5. I know it sounds weird but it worked for me!!
