I saw this thread a few days ago but haven't had the time to come back to it...

I have stretch marks on the insides of my thighs too. I know for a fact one of my good friends does, and I will be ****ed if we are the only three women in the world with this "flaw". But you know what? That doesn't mean anything. I still think I look awesome and I have great legs, and I am proud of my body. Could I be fitter? Sure. Could I stand to replace some flab with muscle? Of course. Be that as it may, I still love me.

You look amazing, you have a great body and the fact that you think any part of it is nasty is frustrating. So many women would kill to look like you, but yet you're still unhappy with yourself. Society and the media has such a profound effect on our lives. It has enough influence to even make beautiful girls like you make them feel bad about themselves.

Stop putting yourself down. Give society a big middle finger. Society is just the jealous girl at school who is mean to everyone else because it doesn't have what you do. Love yourself, be proud of yourself. You are beautiful. Oh, and you DON'T have thunder thighs. LOL

I do not see the thunder thighs , at all. If you are porportioned such that you are a bit "pear" shaped, this is much better than, as I am, . "Apple shaped". This apple shaped body is unhealthy AND makes for a higher center of gravity, by a good foot or more, which makes it harder to stay on a horse. Low center of gravity is desirable.

So "beautiful just as you are" only applies to certain body types? I dislike the idea that in order to build the confidence of one group of women, you have to trash another group. And please don't go: "Oh, well, the media builds skinny girls up so much that getting taken down a peg or two couldn't hurt them." In my experience, EVERY girl -- no matter her weight -- tends to pick at and obsess over her perceived flaws. You're acting no better than the media with your divide and conquer strategy; you're just doing it from a different location.

To the OP, there is beauty in being fit, just as there is beauty in being curvy, slender, plump, petite, etc. You are making certain demands on your body with your activities, and your body is answering these demands. Some people are not so blessed.

My thighs and rear end are SO dimpled it makes me sick.

I try not to focus on it, since I suppose I am still "thin" at 5'5, 120 pounds.

My thighs and butt are just so out of place.

OP, I agree with everyone else - those most certainly are not thunder thighs, and you look great.

Stretch marks are common on women, whether you've gained a couple of pounds, are filling out, grew an inch or two, are pregnant (there's a bunch of reasons,) and there are ways to help get rid of them if they're bothering you, (though most of the time they'll fade with time.)

You can go to Walmart, Target... well, those kinds of stores or a pharmacy like CVS or Rite Aid and they have lotions to put on the stretch marks to help fade them and make them less noticeable. You'll find them in the same section as the moisturizers. Just use it every day and they'll start to fade.

OH PULEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Which part of "beautiful just as you are" are you unhappy with?

Why the ????? Can't you just take the statement at face value stop there?

Nobody is putting a downer on skinny people, it's a fact that some men like curves, some don't, some like blondes, other brunettes, some tall, some short, see where this is going?

OP, you look great, I'm sorry that you see thunder thighs, certainly no one else does, we see a beautifully proportioned person with no body issues.

Ladies and gentlemen, heads up, we are all different, we all have strengths and weaknesses, but for each and everyone of us it is the beauty within that is more important than the trappings of the outer body.

Well, In some pics I guess I get the impression of "Ick. My legs never used to look like that!" But I guess it's not all bad. I can still get out of bed in the morning and walk out to my ponies, so I'm happy. After volleyball, I even noticed I now have abs... which I give credit to doing situps, upside down in my dads inversion table. Situps. Of. Death.

Like, this is X-mas last year:



And August this year:

(pardon my lower leg position...)

I've got them too, but oh well, gotta live with it. :) I also have a small waist so I know what you mean when you say it's hard to buy jeans. You want the ones that make your thighs seem slim and thin, not the ones that accentuate their big size and rounded top.
