It's hard to tell you what you're doing wrong with only that information. What's your routine and diet right now, how much do you weigh, pics?

The dumbbells are good, I'd say sell the bowflex and buy a bench, olympic barbell, and squat rack (but you are 5'4, you might be able to use the bench press as a squat rack, just kiddin)

but without more info that's the only advice I can give you, actually, squats and milk.

Hey,

did you start eating any differently? it's not like 3 days of curling can make you lose definition...

How about you start doing some other exercises?
