Those are good goals right there.
Hows your diet?
Dont just say 'good'. Seriously, what does your typical day of eating look like? How's your training?

Usually wake up at like 7 have a bowl of cereal a protein shake, then at like 10:30 have a oat n honey bar or some fruit, 12:00 have a turkey sandwich some fruit and cottage cheese 5 have something to eat, i usually use a recipe in menshealth and make that and have it for at least 2 nights and the other nights its usually pizza, chicken tenders, chinese; so basically whatever i'm craving, have a protein shake around 7 go to gym, then come back have a protein shake and have some hard boiled eggs or an oat n honey bar

as for training i used to go push, pull, shoulders and legs. now im doing something along the lines of this(the workout is posted on the wall of my gym so i next time ill have to remember everything):

Great article about diet: http://www.wannabebigforums.com/showthread.php?t=78823

I guarantee you aren't eating enough. But you can slowly work your way there. If you really want to get an idea of how much you should be eating, calculate your maintenance calories, then track what you eat on www.fitday.com for a week, and start aiming to eat over your maintenance.

That program isnt my favourite, personally. It looks like you're just killing your shoulders all week. Consider this: http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=25

Yeah I guarantee you're not eating enough. Here's what I've eaten so far, and I'm low on calories today:

1000 cal shake
2 large tortillas made with 6 eggs, can of tuna, salsa
1000 cal shake
cup of almonds

I will eat a meal consisting of chicken, veggies, potatoes
or one more 1000 cal shake.

What do you say, close to 4000 cals? And that's nothing, some ppl on here eat up to 7,000 cals!

Eat more. Heck grab some Mcdonalds. Just learn more about calorie intake and you should start understanding how much, and what foods to eat.

For your training, are you focusing on full body workouts? Seriously consider that link I sent you WBB #1.
