  • Beats me. I'm pretty ugly. Can't do much about it except hate it.

    I think for stretchmarks you can get that cream at least.

  • Its just a cross women bare when having a me, it is well worth a few stretch marks to see that child grow ....the stretch marks will fade in time......don't be so hard on yourself...

  • Unfortunately, our bodies never stay the same, especially after having kids. I was fortunate the first time, I went right back to the way I was, but not so fortunate the next time. It's been 22 years, and I feel like I still have the baby weight! LOL!!!!! Anyway, now that I am in my 40's, I am starting to gain weight around the middle, something I never did before. I can't stand it. I bought the book The Belly Fat Cure and am trying to stick to that. It tells you what to eat to avoid the belly fat. My husband followed it last year and lost 20 lbs! It really does work. But, you have to know what foods actually contribute to belly fat.
