stretch marks (pic unrelated) Anonymous 10169[Reply]

I have noticed that on my inner thighs (and quite high up) I've been developing stretch marks. I already have quite a lot of stretch marks on my outer thighs but they happened a few years ago when I started gaining weight.
This time though, I haven't lost or gained any weight and my thighs are still the same size as before the stretch marks started developing.
Does this happen? I thought stretch marks are because the skin can't keep up with the expanding area so it tears. So why would stretch marks happen if the area hasn't been expanding??

I already fucking hate how my thighs are already and I just don't get why this is being added.

If you’re the same weight, you’re probably losing muscle and gaining fat. Fat takes up more volume than muscle so it would explain the stretching.

Any anons here are obese or considerably overweight?

Share the struggles, drama, stories, problems and the not so bad parts of being like that.

>Please don't share your weight x height. That always ends up in infighting. We will trust your word that you're big.

>Also no fat fetish bait. It will be reported and removed.

what do you weigh and what's your height, anon? it sounds like your hang ups about your weight really impact your life. you can always go to a doctor and they will prescribe hunger suppressants (that aren't heavily abused). it's really not hard to get a script if you're overweight, i've known quite a few people who've done it. don't think they'd prescribe it for like 20 lbs overweight or anything though. if not you could always try adderall if you can't get a script for weight loss specifically. it really makes eating feel absolutely disgusting.

Anonymous 9870

I didn't want to mention it because the OP asked not to but I have a BMI of 35 so I am well overweight. I have spoken to a few doctors about it but medication isn't prescribed here as easily as it is in the US so the most they've been able to do was put me on the pill (which didn't help and if I'm honest, I think it made it worse!).

I'm checking "natural" alternatives from a health shop, would they be totally useless?

I became overweight and eventually obese in the span of 3 years.
Everyone treats you so different. People are colder and more judgemental. Im not going to teach a priest how to pray, but it came to the point where someone insinuated to me that the reason i am fat is that my mother could not love me as a baby.
The only clothing i have are hand me downs from women twice my age or really elastic stuff. Im afraid to buy clothing for my size because i dont want to admit to myself i am this fat, and because
I have so many long, angry red stretch marks all over my body and i cant help but feel like i ruined my body forever. No matter what, these scars will always be there and will always remind me of my period as an obese woman. A loved one also has stretch marks snd compares mine to theirs in an attempt to make me feel better. The difference? Their stretch marks come from strict, harsh, olympic level body training during puberty, while mine come from sitting around and eating like a lardass for 2 years.

>I'm conscious of the fact that these "younger" styles I like will look silly on me one day and I'm wasting my youth by being overweight. I barely wear makeup or style my hair because what's the point if I'm still fat? I want to look cute but wearing makeup and dressing nice will draw attention to myself.
>I never take any photos of myself anymore and when I see a photo taken by someone else, it upsets me so much.
>I want to change but I have a binging problem, especially when I'm stressed. I don't have any hobbies and I have the attention span of a cardboard box so I immediately turn to food to make myself happy. I keep reminding myself of all the things I can't do because I'm overweight (i.e. all the things above) but it doesn't help when I'm in that state, I just want to eat everything around me for that tiny bit of momentary joy it gives me. Then I go back to being depressed.
I couldnt have written it better anon. I hope you find the sttenght to overcome this

Anonymous 10160

The pill often makes it much worse. I remember taking it and getting the worst depressive episodes and gettong 15kg fatter just in the 3 months i was on it.
For me it was a thpusand times worth it to quit it and get smart about other forms of birth control. It just wasnt worth it.

Anonymous 10161

With condoms is the best bet but its feels more rubbery worth it for your body's health. You will just have to do things differently and instead of the usual you will have to opt for finishing the love making with a bj.

Your moid better not dare to finish without making you finish first.

Yup could probably find tutorials for similar looks aimed at yaoi-series composers. Looks similar tbh.

Anonymous 10155


It appears to me that, that makeup draws inspiration from art style that's very similar to that of Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust or some similar anime by Yoshiaki Kawajiri. Look it up, if you want some reference for attempting to imitate it. Pic unrelated.

So I have been struggling with this idea for some time now, whether to do it or not do it, but I have been considering changing my hair into wearing dreadlocks/locs.
Are there any miners on here who have this hairstyle? I personally don’t care what race you are (I believe any race is allowed to wear them).
But if you do wear dreadlocks could you please explain why you choose to wear them over regular hair? What inspired you to start wearing them and what have been the pros and cons of wearing dreadlocks for you?

Also, do you have some tips that you might offer to someone who is just starting to wear dreadlocks and what they should do? It would mean a lot to me if someone could help with answering my questions, thank you!

I saw a reply here before that someone had sent me a YouTube video and supported me getting dreads, but now I'm looking back on this thread and saw the post got deleted for some reason :/ idk why

Anonymous 10126

honestly, you would be better off getting the fake/yarn type ones, you can't undread them, like the anon above said, especially if you have straight hair or a wavy hair pattern, or if you need to wash your hair every 1-2 days. i've worn fake locs in the past and even considered getting real ones at one point, but i just love staightening and curling my hair too much. it's all up to though you anon

This. Am I the only one who thinks they look ugly as hell?

Anonymous 10143

Most girls with dreadlocks (especially white girls) look like crackheads living with their 5 kids who all have different dads.

I just think they're ugly, but they look much better on black women, but half black but fully black women. I think only very pretty black women can pull them off, otherwise it kind if looks trashy.

And yikes!I couldn't imagine trying to get those out. My scalp is very sensitive I cant imagine the agony of brushing those things out. I've heard of women brushing them out and it takes like 10 hours of brushing and afterwards hours have a super sore scalp.


eating disorder thread Anonymous 4629[Reply]

eating disorder thread - its time for another

do you have an eating disorder?
which one?
are you attempting recovery?
how long have you had it?
what caused it?
how does it disrupt your daily life, if it does?

i have a purging disorder.
i kind of want to attempt recovery sometimes, then i see something like my crush looking happier talking to another girl thats skinnier than me, i think about how much better i could look/how i could compensate for my stupid ugly fact, and i think about the comments my dad gives me when i 'eat bad' even though im 19 bmi/skinnier than him (hes overweight, i think.) ive had mine since i was 13. i was a fat child growing up because my parents didnt know how to feed me, and instead of giving me healthy food they just called me fat/made fun of me. it disrupts my daily life heavily because i cant eat anything without purging after, and it just ruins my mood and has disrupted my health. ill be devastated if i go up 0.1 a pound

I used to have bullimia. I am no longer bullimic but I feel worse than I ever did before I started. 6 years on and I cannot look at myself in the mirror without crying. My teeth are ruined and so am I :) I wish I could go back. I wish I could tell myself that even if I think ruining my body won't matter, even if I think I cannot ever look worse than I do now even if I choose not to seek help for my disorder, that it will hurt so much very more than I ever imagine. It is a long, drawn out full pain that hits you every day of your life, and my god, it hurts so much. I want it to stop so much. I no longer feel like a human being anymore, I am an ugly and rotten woman. But nobody knows, and nobody cares except me.

The only way I live on now is by starving now. I just move on to a different medicine, one that I pretend will make me feel so much better despite the fact that I know it will kill me inside just as much.

sorry for blog posting lol

Stop doing this anon. Stop thinking about the things you hate about yourself. Put the mirrors and the scales away. We don’t need them anymore. Being happy and healthy will make you beautiful. Chase that instead.

i had bad depression as a preteen/teen to the point i wasn't even grooming myself minimally. my teeth are absolutey fucking fucked. all the expenses getting them fixed has cost me $15k out of pocket in the past few years. that's all of my vacations and my debt being paid off gone out the window.

iktf, it sucks so much. and when a dentist is judgemental it really hurts. the last one commented, "wow, you really had a lot of cavities". i think about his comment almost every day. he didn't even realize he said something hurtful either and he's a great dentist and nice guy. i feel like i'm just absolutely fucked.

Anonymous 10085

You can get lots of cavities even if you brush every day (like I did) so don't feel bad about that.

Anonymous 10115

Thank you anon I just hope one day I won't feel like pain is necessary.


When did you get your first period? Anonymous 4796[Reply]

As the title says.
I have a friend that has an 8yo daughter and she already has hairs under her arms. My friend is a little bit freaked out because she doesn't want her 8yo to get her period yet. I mean, who would want that?
I got mine when I was 11 or 12, and so did my friend. Do you guys think this is genetic? We've read stuff online about it but we want to hear your opinion. Also she has gone to the doc before and even though her daughter is not showing any "puberty signs", the doctor said that nowadays is normal to get their period earlier than before.

It can start at any time during puberty and it's not weird. 12 is as normal as 14. A quick search says it's women "before" 11, so yeah 11 and 12 is perfectly normal. Sure it's concerning if it starts at 6 years old but you're being weird about nothing. It's not like it's something people can control anyway.

Personally I got mine at 13.

Anonymous 10094

13, i remember getting it on the day of my birthday

Lol ok because it's something you can control and assign an arbitrary number you feel comfortable with.

I got mine at 14 but I was about 20 lbs underweight at the time.

Anonymous 10108

I think I was 11? I just realized how odd it is that I don't remember the age, but I have a clear memory of telling my mom. My cramps were horrible for the first ~3 years or so but now I hardly get any, also I'm on birth control so my periods are super sparse

I HAD THIS BOOK and would freak out about the tampon page, I knew what a period was beforehand but I thought if you just put a tampon in your panties it would.. repel it? Somehow? So once I realized the tampon goes IN the vagina I couldn't handle it.


Nail Art Thread Anonymous 592[Reply]

Anyone into nail art?

I've recently gotten into free-handing/painting on my nails. It's really hard but the results are quite pretty when they come out good.

Also if anyone is wanting to try out nail art but don't want to drop lots of money on products and kits, I really recommend the Makeup brand Essence! It's a teen girl/starting makeup company but they're very trend focused and usually have all the nail art stuff that is big right now for really affordable prices like stamping sets for $5 (last week I saw them carry that glitter dust that you can rub on your nails for half the price online)

Face yoga etc Anonymous 10064[Reply]

Don't think I see another thread for this. Has anyone tried following those face yoga videos which claim to change your appearance slightly by building muscle? Do they actually work?

They seem super fishy to me as I can't find anything on it except the yoga videos themselves but I'm so desperate and this is the only way I've found to change what I hate without Botox. I just want upturned mouth corners… :(
