My bosses daughter wanted me to help her win Crazy Hair day at her school, so I braided the sides, put it up, sprayed color in it and walked her to school. Took like 2 hours. Ha. But she had a blast at school.
Today I was out walking in short shorts, and I heard some girls whisper as they walked by. ‘Ugh, why would she even wear shorts if they are gonna show off her gross stretch marks?’ Hearing things like this makes me so angry.
Let me clarify that my stretch marks are not gross. They are little stripes on my skin that my loving boyfriend cannot seem to stop kissing or running his fingers over.
Everyday I look at them covering my thighs and bum, all I can think of is how I have now lost the weight that I had once gained so quickly, shedding it off with eating better and exercise.
Please, anyone, when you see someone out walking or doing exercise and they have stretch marks on them, don’t make fun of them.
Stretch marks are not something to look down upon. They do not always occur on people who have gained weight. People get them from gaining muscle too quickly as well, and losing weight too fast. They are not ugly. They are not ‘gross.’ They are a sign of growth.
Like I’ve always said, girls trip about stretch marks waaaay more than guys do. That shit is cute to me! If girls could stop hating on each other, they could totally take over the world!!! But they won’t! Lol
