I agree with the tricep dips, kick backs, wall push ups (Unitl you get enough upper body strenght to do them on the ground), I have been doing these things and tricep machines at the gym and with the cardio it is helping. I'm not seeing a HUGE change yet, but I know they are in there. Just like abs, they are in there, just have to get rid of hte mush around them.
I agree with the loose weight part, but there are tons of tricep exercises to firm up the underlying muscle. Tricep dips, french press, tricep pushups, kickbacks, etc. If they still have the individual exercise things you can look up, check out anything that says tricep in it.

Lower your calorie intake and burn more calories than you eat. :)
Unfortunately, spot reduction isn't possible; you could do tricep dips, etc, but it won't reduce the flab there. That's because our muscles draw their energy from the bloodstream... not the surrounding fat stores. Where you lose is largely determined by genetics.
Total-body strength training will boost overall fat burning capability, and shouldn't be neglected, but targeting certain spots for fat loss won't work. It's a total body process.
