You really don't weigh that much so adding on the pounds quicker than not is actually good in your case.

Join up at the gym quick and get some solid workout efforts in along the way and you'll be fine...good luck!!

Well - my body's getting used to consuming quite a bit now, when I first started trying to put on the weight last week - i was off to the loo upto 3 times a day, this wasnt including the amount of times I was going for a pee... lol. I have also gained weight - I was 9st 9ish at the start, i've so far been upto 10st 3, im now stuck at 10st 2 so this is a good thing, it's not been burnt off too quickly - should see some more gains in the next week or so.

Also - my body is feeling stronger, I havnt had proper meals for years (misses couldnt cook or couldnt be arsed but im single again and doing it my sen), the tops of my legs look impressive - this is just from walking and not driving, also the skin around my knees and ankles have a bit more meat on them now, before it looked tight and skinny :) - so far so good, im impressed.

10.5KG/10/5 - dumbell curls
10.5KG/20/8 - dumbell lifts

There where more with the bumbells but im not sure what the exercise's are called, can someone link me to an informative site with this sort of info? I did search but there isnt much explaining on some sights I found.

My arms where killing me, most of the big machines where in use too so I went on the Treadmill for 20mins - @ 4mph - wasnt too bad, this I can cope with, just need to keep working and strengthening my muscles for bigger weights in the future.

Woke up this morning and jeees was I in pain, it wasnt from the gym last night, that sort of ache I can cope with - it happened when I was sleeping last night - my son stayed over last night, shared the bed - and I slept in a funny style - laid with my head and neck resting on my left arm - when I woke this morning it was dead and after a few mins it was ok - but there is real strain like I have seriously pulled a muscle or something, I was fine before I nodded off, but in agony this morning when I woke - hope its nothing serious, for now ill persavere with it.

Ok - so far so good, my arm feels much better, must of been a strain - have started taking the Vitamin B complex capsules - i need them for my immune system, not going into too much detail but all the messing about in my past has mucked up my immune system to an extent - so Vitamin B6 is needed for a months course - then I shouldnt be at high risk of cold's etc etc, right now I have this stinking cough and cold - hopefully it will be cleared up over the next few days.

(@ home) - Pint of water, needed to quench my thirst, wine dry's ur mouth
(@ home) - Pint of Whole Milk before bed - had a good day today.

Back in swing with my arm too and the cold is nearly gone, last night I did the following in my spare room just usin the dumb bells, dips, press ups.

Right I dont have the same sort of weights as the gym at home, just a few for the dumbells.

10KG (all i have for the bells at home)

weight / reps / sets

10KG/10/5 - dumbell curls
10KG/20/10 - dumbell lifts
10KG/20/10 - dumbell rises

Dip's (table top to table top - really feel the burn)
60 in total, 30x2 = 2min break between each set.

Press/Push Up's
40 in total, 10x4 = 2min break between each set.

I need some info on these exercises because last night, I was experienting with the dumb bells, wanted to see how many different workouts i could do and see what muscles it was making an impact on and I did do loads but havnt a clue what the names are, i found a couple that I thought felt really effective - I mean, lift the bumbells either two or just one in both hands infront of your body - so its level with your face and hold for a second, this really burns the tops of your shoulders and the sides of your neck as well as feeling it in your latz too - please if someone could give me a link with all these moves on with names.

Thanks for that bit of info.

I was speaking to someone last night, they said that Muscle weighs more than Fat - is this true?

Also - Cholesterol, I havn't a clue what this is mate or what it means, im quite new to this (done training before etc) but never been right into it like I am now so I'm still learning.

If you could explain what Cholesterol is etc and if something in your body that has to be checked - how do I go about it.

All help is appreciated greatly.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cholesterol

basically, get a blood test at your doctor. its pretty much fats that clog up your arteries.

Cholesterol is minimally soluble in water; it cannot dissolve and travel in the water-based bloodstream. Instead, it is transported in the bloodstream by lipoproteins - protein "molecular-suitcases" that are water-soluble and carry cholesterol and triglycerides internally. The apolipoproteins forming the surface of the given lipoprotein particle determine from what cells cholesterol will be removed and to where it will be supplied.

Cholesterol is transported towards peripheral tissues by the lipoproteins chylomicrons, very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) and low-density lipoproteins (LDL). Large numbers of small dense LDL (sdLDL) particles are strongly associated with the presence of atheromatous disease within the arteries. For this reason, LDL is referred to as "bad cholesterol".

On the other hand, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) particles transport cholesterol back to the liver for excretion. Having large numbers of large HDL particles correlates with better health outcomes, and hence it is commonly called "good cholesterol". In contrast, having small amounts of large HDL particles is independently associated with atheromatous disease progression within the arteries.

Thanks for this info, as far as I am aware - there is no issues with me, I have had blood test's in the past for other reasons and never had any issues - always had a really good health on that side of things.

I will comment one thing, I do have Spina Bifida Occulta (the outcome from this means I have an extra tiny tiny bone in the bottom of my back, and there is a tuft of hair around the area to protect the area) this does not affect me in any way, it could easily be the opposite way - where a portion of the back bone at the bottom is not there and this would mean I couldnt do any lifting and would have walking problems - lucky i have an extra bone and not a portion missing - wich is usually the case on the Occulta version - also i've never had issues with it and the GP's and Surgeons say that I shouldnt have any problems.

Finally - i will go get a re-check as I havnt been to the docs for a while now.

Thanks for your informative post :)

18KG+6lbs (roughly 45lbs) /12/10 - dumbell curls (both arms at same time)
18KG+6lbs (roughly 45lbs) /12/10 - dumbell rows (both arms at same time)

Dip's (two coffee tables, dip between them)
My first set of dip's, I pushed out 30, the second set I managed 20 - this was after I did the new exercises above, I will try re-arrange the routine so I can fit more dip's in - this used to be one of my specialities :)

The curls with both arms at once and the extra weight really got the muscles burning - also the rows got my back, shoulders and chest muscles burning - I think im going to add these into my routines for my top half - they require some decent aggression and stamina.

Will take some pics tonight after my workout - it's been around 2-3 weeks now and im seeing good improvements - wait for the pictures to see yourselfs :)

Was speaking to the sister's boyfriend last night, he give me some tips - said best thing to do with the weights im using is - do the heaviest possible to start with as this will help tear & rip the muscles - this will then allow them to grow bigger quicker - he said once youve maxxed out on the super heavy weights, keep removing weight and doing more - as this will help the muscles burn whilst repairing the tears & rips - this also meaning that they will get strong and bigger quicker and look more ripped up.

Can anyone confirm this? im happy doing the light weights for ages till im maxxed out then after a rest - or a few hours doing jobs - ill come back and do the super heavy ones but only short amounts till im maxxed out.

If he's right in saying what he's saying - then ill move my routines around and do the heavier latter first.

Thanks for the support bro - it aint as easy as it looks lol - especially with only using supplements and not the hardcore gear that everyone bangs on about.

Hi guy's

There's been some changes to my daily lifestyle over the past week... this is why I havnt been keeping to the journal in the past week.

After this week has gone by - I will keeping back to the journal, also - in the past week I have gained another 2lbs :) - so I have hit my goal of 150lbs now, it wasnt easy either - im now in a gym and getting into some solid routines for different aspects of my body on different days.

Ill be back to blogging next week :) - keep your eyes pealed for next Tuesday (not here next Monday, its May bank holiday on Monday).

A little hint ;) - my new aim is now 170lbs - but over a longer term as I dont want a high body fat % - would rather it be muscle - thats why we're all here :)
