When you are over weight your skin stretches and gorws extra...

so when you lose wieght you dont lose skin.. and it all compacts.. the stretched skin shows up red because it is thinner.

This wil go away over a long period of time.. unless you were highly overweight.. they may be permanent and require surgery to get rid of.
