Bad, Fashion, and Friends: I knew she was made by God when saw lightning in her
 hips.
💛⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️ Story-vulnerability post: I first noticed I had stretch marks when I was a normal weight at 13. I was shocked when I first realised what they were. At this age for me, was the era when Size Zero just "became in fashion" and this Size Zero image was portrayed as the goal in magazines. This was before "social media" and a lot of influences came from newspapers and magazines. Seeing these stretch marks on my body at a young age, I felt worlds apart from these images and it affected me pretty badly actually. I then went on to put on weight and had more stretch marks. I became ashamed of my body as my friends didn't have them on their hips and stomach. I would be the one in the swimsuit, where everyone else was in bikinis. Fast forwards a few years and I lost a lot of weight, and the stretch marks remained. I was at a normal weight but would still cover up a lot as I was far from accepting myself. Back in 2013 when I gained the weight (as shown on this account) I was the heaviest I had ever been. I didn't gain many more stretch marks (my skin just became a bit looser). When I lost weight, I was in this body that was once 235lbs. Although to many that didn't know me, and even those that did, I looked completely normal, but I did not feel normal as the weight gain had changed my body. I'm not going to lie, it was difficult to accept. It was a new me in old skin. I would get angry at myself and felt bad to share that here as I didn't want to send a negative message. But since the beginning of 2017, I have really tried to love+accept myself. I really feel like for the first time in my life I am learning to be kind to myself and accept my stretch marks. I am learning to be kinder to the young me who didn't know what was happening to her body. I have found the bodypositive movement really helpful as in typical mainstream media things like stretch marks+body issues are rarely covered. Thank you to you guys and social media for teaching and helping me to accept myself and thank you to anyone reading this for giving me a place to share my story❤️ Today I don't have the courage to share my stretch marks but I hope one day I will❤️ . @trillamericana2 📸
