Loss of muscle mass can begin in sedentary women (that is, women who don’t move much) as young as the age of 25!
The Muscle lost is replaced with fat, and because fat is not supported by muscle, we get sagging in areas we want tight.
Loss of elasticity in the skin is also a culprit for droopy drawers, and bat wings.
You can reverse the problem of sagging with strength training, replacing muscle with fat.
And did you know muscle weighs more then fat?
So don’t obsess over the scale. Instead, make a goal of getting your waist measurement below 35 inches, NOT a goal of fitting into your high school jeans!
I have a 28 inch waist, never given birth to children, and still can’t fit into my high school jeans!
Our bodies just change with age. And in high school we aren’t even full grown yet, as some may think!
That’s why they have a Junior AND Misses Department! I can’t even fit my leg into a pair of Junior jeans anymore!
