From Jules, Age 19

Ht. 5'6", Start: 265 lb, Today: 216 lb, Goal: 150 lb - I am frantic about something, and I'm hoping someone will be able to give me some real information. I gained abou 80 pounds over the course of about a year (very fast), and have horrible stretch marks ALL over my body. Not joking...stomach, sides, arms, back, breasts, hips, butt, behind the knees, even on the top of one of my shoulders! I am only 19, and I want to be able to feel good once I've reached my goa weight. However, I am terrified that the amount of stretch marks I have means my skin has no elasticity and won't snap back! I don't want to look like I've had six children before I turn 20! I drink water, I exfoliate, I moisturize...but I'm TERRIFIED I'm going to be saggy. Has anyone experienced this? Should I be legitimately worried? What should I do?
