I have biceps!!!
I mean, I suppose they've always been there...hiding somewhere. But now when I flex you can definitely see some muscle. Wow! Most notable thing about my arms is no longer the underarm flab, but this little bump on top when I flex.
I have a few female friends who do physical labor and I would love to have arms like theirs - not bulky, but seriously toned and strong. After looking at myself in the mirror at the gym yesterday in a sleeveless shirt, I realize I am on my way!
The scale hasn't budged in two weeks, but, hey, I don't mind...because I've got biceps! Woohoo!!!
Who else out there can see muscle now where they didn't before? Great feeling!!!
