Thread: Stretch Marks
06-02-2003, 09:44 AM #1
Before I state my question, I wanna give you guys some backround. My senior year in high school I used to weigh about 240lbs. Since then, I have started working out and eating properly and dropped to 180lbs. I didnt like how I looked at 180 so I decided to bulk up to 200lbs. I am currently about 200 - 205lbs. From losing all that baby fat, I have stretch marks on my stomach and my sides (love handles). I have been rubbing cocoa butter on them for the past few months and it helped but they are still there. My question now is...if I decide to do a cutting cycle, will the stretch marks get worse or go away?? I just wanna know if anyone has any experience with this or knows someone that did. Thanks alot.
I am 20 years old, I am not thinking about a cycle probably til next spring but I am just trying to get some information. Thanks guys.

if you cut up your stretch marks won't get worse. the only thing that will make them worse would be if you got bigger. stretch marks are caused by rips in the lower layers of skin. As for them going away, sorry. once they're there, that's it. the only thing you can do is what you did and that's rub cocoa butter on them to make them turn clear. the only way to make them completely disappear is surgery and i don't think you'd want that.

It took me about a month to notice it working pretty good. Thanks for the response. One more question though sorry...say I cut up and I get a 6 pack. Will you still see the stretch marks on my abs even with a 6 pack?? Thanks alot guys.

just because there is less fat over your abs does not mean the skin won't still show the stretch marks there.
sorry bro good luck with the coca butter.

try tanning...a friend of mine used to look like he had spider webs spread all across where his arms and chest/shoulders met, he finally tanned and i didn't notice them after that...im sure this isnt some magical scientific cure, you just can't see them as well (or at all depending on how bad they are)...
