    I was told it was only for during but if it is working for you after I think I can invest a few dollars to see if it works for me. How often do you apply it now? I do not want to wear mid bearing shirts or anything but I would feel better if I could at least get them to lighten up a bit. I have heard that there is a laser procedure you can had done to remove them but that is to much for me. Lets cross our fingers for the cocoa butter

    I did the cocoa butter during & after pregnancies (I have 3 children) & did notice a difference, even after. In fact, I've bought some more & am currently using cocoa butter again (youngest is 9mo). Just be consistent w/ it & be patient, & after a bit u will see a difference.

    youcandoit~~ cocoa butter only works while you are preg. to prevent from getting them. To late for me now.

    Thumper~~~ yeah we are air force. Is your hubby gone now?(pic?) Ant(Anthony/Hubby) is leaving in April. Right now we just have a idea of where which of course would be Iraq or Afgan. I am hoping it will change but I doubt it.

    I am no longer taking them. I have kept my weight off pretty well. Might have gained a few pounds with Christmas, but I havent weighed since TOM is here. We are going to FT Irwin. I take it you are Air Force? My hubby is in the Army.

    Oh ok I order from a website but mine look different. I know they work but it would be nice to have the ones you see on the websites. So do you not take them anymore b/c you reached your goal? If so are you being able to keep the weight off good not taking them? Where are you moving to when you leave here? We are hoping for Alaska or Hill(UTAH)

    We are station at Ramstein but live on another base. We have another year and a half here. Where do/did you order your pills from. It is hard to find a website that will deliver over here.

    jessmhow, I have them REALLY bad!!! Had my daughter really young so they are really bad. On top of that I ballooned up to 208 and got them everywhere else that they already werent.

    I have lost about 70 lbs and they have lightened up. They are still there but atleast white now. I have noticed that if I lotion up really good they arent as noticeable either.

    Good luck to you!! Im in Germany too

    Question

    I was already kinda big when I got preg. and I got stretch marks from both my boys and was wanting to know if they get any better once you lose weight. Or if I will always have to deal with them? I have heard they get better but do not go away all together. Anyone who has or has had this problem please let me know what happened for you.
    Thanks
