Q: I have stretch marks on my stomach and back. If I lose weight, will they go away?
I’m gonna be totally honest with you: Stretch marks will not completely go away. But that said, they can fade tremendously. They should fade on their own with time, but there are cosmetic procedures, including laser treatments and injections, that can help them fade.
Instead of worrying about stretch marks, though, try to change your perspective on them. I see mine as a badge of honor. They are from a time in my life when I was heavy, unhealthy, and unhappy. They now serve as a reminder to me that I can change anything I put my mind to. Nobody’s perfect, sweetie — perfect is boring.
