    I have stretch marks all over...biceps, behind my armpits, a bit on my hips, a few on my legs. It's brutal, there really seems to be nothing you can do.

    There is nothing you can do for stretch marks. Cocoa Butter Lotion may help, but the reason you get stretch marks is due to your change in size.

    Wow fuck that stomach is hideous. Good GOD.

    As long as I don't start to get marks on my upper body too much I don't mind em, covered by my boxers/pants most of the time where they are now.

    Use vitamin E lotion or Coco butter Vaseline if they really bother you. I used to get them all the time especially around my armpits/pec area, take em as a sign of improvement.

    the cocoa butter really works slimming down from 251 at 5'8"(now 227) and I've got a shit ton on my spare tire. Start putting it on now before they get too bad and to help further prevent any more.
