Stretchmarks and loose skin

Hi All

I am a 28 year old girl who has never weighed more than 56kg and my weight hasn't changed more than 2kg since puberty.

However, I seem to have really inflexible skin since I am covered in stretch marks and have just started developing loose skin.

I have stretchmarks covering my breasts, hips and bum. And now have loose skin hanging from my arms, worst around the armpit. As well as some minor stretchmarks on the arms. I know what caused the arms - I joined a gym and although I told the personal trainer I didn't want to build up my arms he convinced my to do some toning and although I only went 5 times over 2 weeks, I have developed nasty loose skin.

So my skin simply can't stretch, doctors just say that it's too bad. But it seems to me that this can not be normal..........could it be that it is a symptom of something. My mother has 3 children and not one stretchmark, my father doesn't have any either.

It is depressing and at this rate I will look like i am 80 when I am 35.

Any help is appreciated.
