Flappages

I need to start saving my pennies for plastic surgery. I think I look pretty decent. Normal even. As long as I keep my arms down.


Except for...



The scary, scary flappages. Also known as the batwings.

I don't care so much about the floppy stomach or the thighs, but the arms really bug me.

They're not as terrible as you make them out to be...Perhaps some toning exercises may help? :) I keep my arms down too because of my flappages... See you in 10 weeks! YAY!

I have the same problem! I think I look pretty decent besides my huge, flabby arms. It's summer and i still can't get the courage to leave the house without a cardigan on!

Mine are the same, I have more weight to loose and it can only get worse.
Maybe we should keep them and it can be like the banded ladies salute, we'd all recognise each other, like the masons handshake!
Perhaps I should go and lay down!

I like the idea of the secret LB Salute! What a sisterhood! Ha!

This will make you laugh. My daughters like to play with my 'squishy arms' now that I've lost weight and have some flabby skin! it's hilarious.

Oh Stephanie!!! I'm in the same boat as you honey. My arms are actually getting some definition due to the weight lifting that I'm doing, but as soon as I hold my arms up, they look identical to yours. I'm sooooooo getting brachioplasty.

I have the same hatred of my arms. I know they aren't as bad as I make them out to be but I have no idea if I will ever get over the self-consciousness...

It's like looking in a mirror. Mine are probably worse! Why can't our arms catch up with our waists?!

You guys are all scaring me! I'm going to the rec center this weekend to ask about arm exercises!
