If it hurts or is uncomfortable, you are making the right call by stopping. I often see older women lifting weights that seem too heavy for them and they tend to get injured.
What about something like swimming? It's certainly a good way to work out your arm muscles, but you have the support of the water to keep you from hurting yourself. I mostly do backstroke--it is really great for your upper arm and back muscles.
