Thanks RUSTREDHD for the Jillian Michaels link for flabby arm ("Bat Wings") exercise. I've been looking for a good exercise to do for that part of my body.

We lose the muscle tone so quickly I realized so we have to keep it up!! Tricep pushups (pilates style) helped a lot. Also doing tricep lifts w/ dumb bells. I lost about 35 # or so and was in fantastic shape and arms were great but I religiously did weights 2-3 days a week. When I slacked off for a couple of months the loose arms showed up again. I think it also depends on how much weight you have to loose. The skin will tighten up if lost slowly while doing weights with cardio from what I've seen.

If you don't love yourself....how can you expect others to.

I know I am a product of genetics, everyone female on my mother's side has flabby arms. I am trying to combat that one myself by doing consistent strength training exercises to build the muscle to burn the fat away. This will be a life long battle as I'm only 32, but am ready for it! I have been workign with a personal trainer that seems to focus specifically on my upper body-chest/back/arms and I am having great benefits. I was shocked last night i was doing dumbell rows with a 25lb dumbell!!! WOWSERS!!

My philosophy is "It is what it is and I can only do so much". I will deal with it but if i can curtail it getting out of control now, the more likely i can keep it in control as I age!

GOOD LUCK! emoticon

I've been doing these with 5 and 8 pounds weights and it seems to help.

Take Care,

Well at turning 60 this Thursday and loosing about 50 lbs, my arms are somewhat flabby..or I have 'wings'? There is a person in our bike club that lost 80 lbs and she just had the under arm surgery! She does a ton of exercise and has a trainer! I lift a ton of weights to strengthen my upper body to offset my larger pear lower body. My muscles now fill up my arms! It takes a while but it works. Good luck on the losing weight so you can see your muscles....

I dont know what has happened here I think I am a victim of genetics. It seems no matter what I do, my arms are flabby. So fed up I am considering surgery! If anyone has also experienced this problem and managed to overcome it without going to such length plus share your story.
