Model Mom Embraces Stretch Marks To Inspire Others | SHAKE MY BEAUTY

SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft TV:

A DETERMINED mother has launched an online campaign to inspire women to embrace their stretch marks. Striving to be a swimsuit model all her life, Talmesha Jones, from San Antonio, Texas, struggled to accept her post-baby stretch marks when she gave birth to her only son, Chase, five years ago. Talmesha’s confidence was at an all-time low – often receiving abuse online, she would refuse to look at herself in the mirror. But when best friend, Johnathan Benton, convinced her to take part in a photo-shoot for the first time since giving birth, Talmesha decided enough was enough and that her stretch marks actually made her unique and special. Talmesha, 27, then launched the popular Instagram hashtag, ‘Tiger Stripes On A Tuesday’ – challenging the stigma attached to stretch marks and encouraging women from around the world to post pictures of their post-baby bodies.

Considering how slim she is and taking her overall genetics, she could have easily lose the stretch marks…it all depends if you willing to get rid of them or be lazy about it and just “embrace it” ahahah! My sister had 2 kids…one after another and she worked her way out from the stretch marks + this girl looks under 30, so she still got her biological clock on her side to fix everything, if she is willing to!

I totally started crying.. Ughh.. I need to do some soul searching and really embrace my body. I absolutely can’t stand looking at my stomach in the mirror. I have had a 6 pack at one point in time, but you couldn’t even tell because of all the extra skin it was extremely disheartening

We all can’t afford Kim k or black Chyna etc….surgeries to fake bodies after child birth, nor would some of us subject our bodies to the knife for other people’s idea of beauty, real women sometimes get stretch marks. Awesome woman for excepting herself natural self.
