Many people in Las Vegas work hard to maintain an aesthetically pleasing physical appearance. This can be a great idea, as it usually goes hand-in-hand with better physical health and tends to lead to stronger self-confidence, a more positive self-image, and general happiness. Sometimes, however, people may experience a loss of muscle tone while losing excess weight.
What Is Muscle Tone?
From a medical perspective, muscle tone is the tension that exists in your muscles. This tension is extremely important, as it allows you to feel your muscles at rest without tensing them, improves your posture, gives you more energy and stamina, and even decreases your risk of disease. Well-toned muscles also look great, and this look is what most people think about when they talk about having toned muscles.
Why Am I Losing Muscle Tone?
Your issue may not be so much with losing muscle tone as with losing muscle mass. If you lose muscle mass, your muscles will not be as defined, which leads to a flabby look and feel. This most commonly happens because you are not exercising those muscles, but can also be a consequence of your weight loss efforts, which have unintentionally resulted in the loss of lean muscle.
