Can anyone tell me HOW and WHY we get streach marks? because i have a bunch of them on my upper thighs and they are starting to go down to my knee! but the even wose thing is I am starting to get some on my lower stomach as well! I it possible that ( i have a pear shaped body) all my excess weight went down to my lower body and now i is running out of places to go so it is starting to fill out my stomach? PLEASE HELP IT SUCKS HAVING NO CONTROL OVER WHAT KIND OF FOOD YOU HANDS PUT IN YOU MOUTH! BTW IM 5'0 122

I know why we get them, because when you gain weight, your body gets bigger and the skin is stretched out, causing stretch marks, thats also why pregnant women can get them too.
