Stretch marks don't go away, do they?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Davidoc, Aug 23, 2005.

  1. I've always been a very skinny guy. Over the summer however I've started to gain some weight and have plateued at a comfortable 172 pounds. (I'm 6'1 tall.) I just noticed something. I have huge, obvous stretch marks all over my butt. I have no idea how long they've been there, but they're all over it. Will they ever fade or disapear, or are they scars? I didn't want to be very skinny forever, but this is ridiculous. I excercise all the time, yet I now have these extremely unsightly marks all over my rear end. Is there any way to make them go away?

    Welcome to old age.
  3. It's not as fun as I would have hoped. ;)
  4. I suggest more fiber/fruit in your diet. If you're waiting so long between dumps that you produce logrolls big enough to cause stretch marks, you're at increased risk from colon cancer.

    But its hard to tell. For an accurate diagnosis, please post pics. Its been said: "Its TB! We LOVE pics!"

    First, he said "all over," not just in a concentrated area. And second, that is just disturbing.
  7. Ain't that the truth!

    One thing that helps? Start wearing thong underwear. That way old age isn't the only thing creeping up on you.

    I guess you get strech marks on your ass from all that 'good' education you attended that wasn't at "crappy college."

    ^ went to a crappy college and has a few strech marks on his "love handles" from a big weight loss, but has a smooth, pristine butt.
  11. I might have had stretch marks on my butt until I fell on rollerblades at 18.8 mph. You can grind them off pretty easily, they're not permanent at all.

    Stretch marks do go away. At least mine did. I lost alot of weight when I was 16-17 years old, and had some stretch marks on the love handles. They eventually dissapeared, as did the love handles. But maybe that's because I'm only 19.

    Most pro wrestlers have stretch marks because they take roids. Just tell people you're a wrestler.
  19. They will never go away, but they will fade, eventually to the color of the surrounding skin.
  20. My ex girlfriends have stretch marks, thanks to Enzyte, for Natural Male Enhancement. The stretch marks may fade, but their memories will remain forever.
