I am not overweight, just a little saggy where a mum of two usually is. I'm on the Slendertone twice a day so hopefully that's the tummy looking reasonable for the day.

It's my arms though. Well, the fleshy bit around the armpits. Maybe a cracking good bra might make it look better but I would rather look more toned there.

In eleven days.

Should I just wear something else or is there hope? Sob...

Dips are good. There are some personal trainers on here that might be able to help, so I'll wait for them to come along...

Also are you having tan done? (or are you luckily natural olive?) I always find everything looks a little slimmer with some nice all over tanning. Just a bit not Jordan style tango.

Yes I am naturally olive skinned (thanks to mum!) but have t shirt marks on my arms. What a mess. Time to dig out the fake tan...

you can't do it in 11 days, I'm afraid. Dips are good, as cornsilk says, or triceps presses, where you lift a weight over your head to a straight arm position above your head, with the movement commencing at the top of your back, arms bent at the elbows. But not in 11 days to amke a noticeable difference. You'd be more effective in crash dieting, but that isn't considered healthy.

Shawl it is.
