I lost a lot of weight and, despite lifting 4 times a week and packing on some muscle, I'm still left with some loose skin and gnarly stretch marks. I also have a ton of acne scars all over my chest and stomach from years ago. This is has all made me super self-conscious about taking my shirt off in front of people in general, but especially girls. I refuse to take my shirt off at the beach or go in the pool. I'm currently in an LTR going on 3 months and I can tell she is sensing I have an issue with taking my shirt off - for example, her parents have a pool and I always have an excuse not to go in even when everyone else is.
I'm assuming the play is to NOT mention my insecurity around these issues and seek to improve them somehow, but what do I do in the meantime?
For reference of how terribly my skin is, I've here's a before/after of when I lost weight (still working on losing and lifting):
