Stretch marks ?
After my annual checkup recently, I found out that I've gained 17 pounds in a year. So far I've lost three of them, but I can't seem to get rid of these stretch marks. They're gross and I'm embarrassed to wear shorts or a bathing suit. I bought a fancy cream that's supposed to make them vanish, but it hasn't happened after a month of using it. My mother says the marks will go away after I lose the weight. Is this true?
