The ones have are actually lighter then new ones would be.. since i've had them since i was about 9 years old. Also there are lasor therepies for stretchmarks to make them even less noticable... that i might concider after i get to a healthy body weight. Congrats on making it to your mini goal under 200 must feel great.
Misery - It does, thank you I sort of can't believe it happened, but it's nowhere near my real goal. I'm just going to grin and keep working!

And that's true about the skin therapies, and I agree to wait until you've got your body where you want it. A few stretchmarks and saggy skin are wonderful to have compared to all that extra weight.

You're doing fantastically, good for you for jumping in! I hope you start to see those stretchmarks leaving you soon!
