At last measurement (in July) my biceps were 10.75 inches. They started out at 13.25 inches (when I was 189 lbs), so I like the results
. I have a minor "batwing" problem, but my trainer and I are really working to target my triceps.
The funny thing is that I have a HUGE birthmark under my upper arm. It goes from my armpit to my elbow. It never "bothered" me (meaning, I was never self-conscious about it) because it was hidden under my arm -- no one could see it unless I raised my arm up while wearing a short-sleeve shirt. But now because of the work I've been doing on my biceps, my birthmark has MOVED and is now really very obvious on the inner part of my arm. My trainer and I think it's pretty cool because it shows how much your muscle tone can tighten up your skin. I like to look down at it now because it reminds me of all the hard work I've done! And I never used to be ABLE to "look down at it" because it was hanging down under my arm.
That was really random, sorry
. I just think it's cool.
