I have a vein-y issue (lol). I've been losing weight over the past two years (so far 35 kilos - yay!) but over the past few weeks I have noticed my arms and hands becoming smaller, which is great, of course; I like the idea of small arms. But what I have noticed is that the veins on my arms are much more prominant.. Actually, it's not so much my arms, but my hands. There are very noticeable blue veins there, and if I clench my hand into a fist and move my hand, you can even sort of see them sticking out a little (does that make sense?) I don't mean, sticking out like big muscle-men on steroids, but you can notice it ever so slightly.
I'm just wondering if this is a normal thing when you lose so much weight? It doesn't particularly bother me, I quite like the idea that my hands are thinner now that you can see veins (where-as before, you couldn't even see my knuckles lol), but I still have a lot more weight to lose (at least another 30) and I don't really want any more veins visible on my hands, haha.. But would prefer to know if thats what I should expect as I lose more... I don't think it is varicose veins.. Well, I hope not seeing as I'm LOSING weight.. and I'm only 19 lol, so that would be a bit of a downer if it were that, I don't believe it is though.
It's a bit of a silly post, really. But it's just interested me, and I wasn't sure where else to look or ask.
GoodLuck to everyone on their weight-loss journey
Any replies are appreciated!
