Default Purple marks after exercising?

So I have been on a diet & doing exercise everyday for 45 minutes on an exercise bike, it's going to be about 3 weeks tomorrow, and so far I've lost 3.5-4.5kg. I think i'm starting to see some improvements, I think anyways.

However, over the last one or two weeks I've had these thick(dark,noticeable) purple marks around like flabby bits, just like If I sit down i have small rolls, and under the rolls there'll be two big dark purple marks along the flab lines, and two other purple marks under well man boobs lol.

However, after like 10 or so hours the purple lines start to get smaller (they become like lines, the width decreases..if that makes any sense) however it is still very noticeable and I would like to know what this means.

I think it's some kind of effect of pressure. Like when something is pressed into the skin or skin against skin. My husband is very fit and when he lifts weights he usually comes home and takes his shirt off and has some of those marks on his chest. I don't think it's harmful or anything, just a side effect of working out.

Thanks for posting this... I've been seeing bruise like marks on my skin when I was sure I wasn't injuring myself. I never thought it could have been a side affect of working out. I get them on my legs.
