Great advice - everything I was going to say!

Don't stop lifting weights. If you don't want your muscles to look much 'bigger' then switch to lower weights and higher reps. (This is NOT a default prescription for women though... many women can do very well lifting heavy with low reps, but for anyone, women or men, if they're not as interested in building strength or muscle definition and more interested in endurance or weight loss, then high rep sets is the way to go.)

Also make sure you're doing cardio and watching your diet, because that will help burn some fat off your arms (well, all over) and make you look less 'big' and more 'ripped', so to speak.
