I have always been in pretty good shape. I have been a moderate to heavy lifter. For the past month though, I decided to change myself to a long distance runner because i want to run a half marathon. I have been losing weight very quickly and I know some of it is muscle loss during the transition, but I noticed stretch marks near my arm pits this morning when I got out of the shower, and 2 small ones on my abdominals. I dont really know where stretch marks come from but I have always known them to be on fat people. Can anyone explain why I am getting these things all of a sudden?

Well I weighed 227 last month, Im down to 216 now. I suppose its the rapid weight loss. Is there anything I can put on my body to fade them out or prevent them?
Moisturizers in the area is supposed to help. Go to CVS and get lotion made for pregnant women.

yea its part of genetics, elasticity of skin. some people put on crazy size and don't get em and others.. well do.

yea what min said, the preggo ladies lotion. Can't prevent it, but you can fade em out a LITTLE;don't expect it to be gone.
