I still can't do these things for **** and I don't really like the way my back is progressing, but I figured I'd post this anyway. First picture is probably from a year ago, second one was a few weeks ago. I'm starting to notice some fat gains now, but I guess I can't stay lean forever and am happy I've added 40lbs without getting too fat.

Whoops, forgot the picture :D

Sorry, I don't. I may start one though, a lot of people have been asking/telling me to do so.


EDIT: And thanks Pitbull, I wish I felt "big" but I'm never happy with how I look.

You might have a hard time putting on weight, but what you do gain is almost all muscle. Nice work. Looking beastly.

Thanks guys, you're giving me more motivation at a time when I was starting to feel less than thrilled with where I am. It'll pass, every now and then I just get down on myself for some reason.

Eh, not yet, but thanks :) Maybe when I hit 220lbs I'll think differently.

I think you have muscle dysmorphia or whatever it's called where you think you're never big enough. You are effin huge.

I think I have that too, but the difference between you and I is, I'm actually not big enough. :( One day...

Like bigorexia?

Maybe. I haven't even taken a picture of my back since the first picture, so I thought I'd be real surprised. I mean I can see a big difference, but I still don't look big in my eyes. The change is impressive to me, but I still don't look impressive to me. I just see that I want to get bigger.

Thanks though :)

Berfles,

You've made brilliant gains... ive followed what you've been up to since i can remember. I think we are all the same... we are never happy. But i think this is what keeps us going. well done anyway ... just think about what you will be like in another year!

Thanks, I agree about never being happy. If not for that I don't think I'd remain as motivated as I've been. There comes a point where I should at least be somewhat happy though :)

Honestly, I've been only doing 5x5 of deads and 3 sets of pull-ups lately. I switch the grip on the pull-ups when I feel like it, but that's pretty much it.

Thanks, it'll be a long time before I add another 20lbs though, once I finally hit 200 I seem to have stalled out again. Need to look into some more food I guess, but I'm about at the end of my tolerance. We'll see, I'm sure if I can't gain for awhile or gain very slowly I'll get pissed off at my body again and just eat 1000 more calories.

Satisfaction is the death of desire.

Make 220 your goal as you did with 200. You have been a great example for all those who say they 'just cant gain' and youre bull strong into the bargain.

You made it to 200...great. 'In victory, tighten your helmet'..... dont get slack now. Keep pressing on.

Its not easy for anyone really.

Indeed, I'll use this thread in a few months to look back at where I was starting to feel a little unmotivated. I'll get there, it's just going to take some more time. Working out is pretty much my life and if I don't try my hardest to progress I feel like ****, so I definitely won't slack off.

I'm due for a break soon though, but after this week's terrible workouts (heater smoke, mind not in it due to family in hospital) I won't take a break until I get some more good workouts in.
