    Stretch marks

    Are fucking fail.

    So being a former fatty weighing in at 252 at 5"10. And now I'm at 173 shooting for low 160's before I start clean bulking I'm left with these damn stretch marks on my arms and even worst my stomach, it looks as if I had a baby.

    Well it being south Florida I'm almost sexy enough to prance around shirtless..

    Is coco butter really the only soultion?

    lol, in for alternative solutions. I got stretch marks in high school and they really came in during the early years of college. especially around my midsection :mad:

    Get some Mederma. It's expensive but it helps. Cocoa butter too, gotta use both of these religiously. Eventually they'll go away...mine took a couple years but they're gone.

    They fade but there isn't any real way to get rid of them. Bio oil doesn't work, coco butter doesn't work.

    Learn to love them!

    Also, you should be taking fish oil if you aren't already. 10g a day at least. It helps with so many things including your skin.

    Well, skin does heal a little faster when it's properly moisturized, which is what the oil/butter does. It's such a slight difference though :(
