I have been really struggling with something here lately. I have always struggled with my weight (I'm 20). With the first MAJOR weight loss I had, I felt confident wearing cute clothes (i.e. shorts, tank tops, etc). WELL, I put the weight back on, plus many extra pounds. Now after some time, I have taken it off AGAIN.
Unfortunately, this time I have horrid stretch marks. They are bright red and are covering my stomach, and are on my arms, hips, groin area, inner thighs, and the backs of my calves.
I am not able to accept that I can never wear a bikini, shorts, or a tank top when it is hot outside. People say to me, "You have such a nice shape, why do you cover yourself up all the time?"
I think about this all the time and I think I'm going to need some help accepting how I permanently scarred my body.
