    Ok...so,

    So far I've lost 13 inches of my waist, my legs are slimmer(ish), my rings are a lil loose, I've dropped a shoe size and gone from a 26 to an 18...

    BUT MY ARMS ARE STILL FLABBY!!!!!
    :cry::cry::cry::cry::cry::cry::cry::cry::cry::cry::cry::cry::cry:

    I don't know what to do...tops fit me fine, or they would if I could get them over my upper arms! Tis so depressing - I refuse to take my cardi/jacket off in public they're that bad!!

    And they're really outta proportion with the rest of me...

    Any ideas what I can do to make them dissappear??

    Thankies so much!! :confused::confused:

    You cannot spot reduce, but maybe extra cardio sessions will burn the fat away and maybe light weights will tone up the muscle beneath? There are loads of suggestions, it depends on what you like doing in the gym or at home and also your spare time, etc...

    I like doing anything at the gym :) I think it's more toning than weight loss but oh well...

    If you've still got 2 stone to go then there is some weight loss to be had surely...*wink* as well as toning...the toning of the muscle or building up of the underlying muscle is what shapes the arms nicely when the fat finally budges. Don't despair it takes time...I was never brave enough to wear sleevless things until this year...

    So any toning classes they run will possibly do the whole body (even aerobics classes or even water aerobics if your gym has a pool)...and then there are the weights...lifting light weights to start off with, to build up and strengthen the muscle in order to tone the arms...do you ahve instructors at the gym you can talk to about this? As I can only give you advice from my own experience, not tailored to your specific needs necessarily...

    Haha ok ok..I meant in a drastically different way that the rest of my body lol .. Everywhere else is kinda the same size as everywhere else then it's just like........AAAAAAARRRRMMS!!! I guess it's just more gym sessions huh?

    I know, I have quite away to go but I just wish it would go equally allover >_<

    Thanks for the info though...will ask at the gym this week what would be best for ..underarm muscles??

    Yea? It's daft because I can't get t-shirts with arm holes to fit...then the cuffs are huge..coz I have tiny wrists (compared to the rest of me lol)

    I don't know what to do though lol

    Oh, I read it's because we always PULL things (lifting, opening doors, grabbing things) but we rarely PUSH anything of considerable weight, hence lack of tone..

    Heh sorry for the icky picture :(

    Have you just moved there then? Oh, I love it here...but sometimes I do wish I could squish London on the side...5minutes down the road :p

    Oh well eh? I think the coach to London is only £2 each way lol (family and friendlies live there still)

    Oops, I got all confused - I didn't realise it had gone onto a second page!!
