ermm..... do stretch marks and cellulite go down when you loose weight?

(12 Posts)

Need to loose 2.5 stone.

Am determined to have done it by end of march after Christmas.

I hate my body. Hate it.

Not just because of the weight but because I am covered in stretch marks and some cellulite... the cellulite not bad really

But if I got to 9 stone would the stretched skin look better?

Stretch marks will fade with time, however if you lose weight too quickly you will get more. Less fat usually means less cellulite. Good luck!

Me too. No advice just wanted to say good luck. Hopefully by march we'll both be happier with our bodies.


I don't know if they will fade anymore. My youngest is 18months Had 4 kids.

They are everywhere and huge sad

Stomach covered from navel downwards.Sides. hips. Boobs. Calves. Everywhere sad

I just lost 3st in 12 weeks and found the stretch marks got worse but the cellulite got a lot better.

I know that it isn't supposed to work once stretch mark hae gone silvery/white BUT I hae been using bio oil whilst doing my own workout regime (and attempting to stick to a diet) and have seen a marked improvement in them, worth a try x

2.5 stone in three months is unrealistic. 1lb a week or back on it goes as soon as you stop starving.

cellulite is beauty-industry babble for 'normal skin texture' and even ugly-skinny celebs have it. Don't worry about it.

There is no evidence whatsoever that fast weight loss it put back on any quicker than lower weight loss.

I lost 3st in 3 months and havent put a single lb back on. Lost 4st after my previou pregnancy and didnt put any back on then either (until I got pregnant again that is).

How did you do with that 2.5 stone weight loss, by end of March? Wondering, as I peeled off in a changing room yesterday and it was ghastly. Really. Shocking. I go on holiday in mid-August. Need to do something !
