Its been 4 months and I've put on 10 pounds. I'm dieing to get to 155.

Was: 130
Now: 140
Goal: 155 by November

Good progress with gaining the 10lbs. You'll easily hit the 155 target , if you keep training and eating loads.

My advice would be to up your calorie intake by quite a bit more, because if you're just starting out you should find you'll gain muscle weight fairly easily with a good routine and diet. While a 10lb gain is good over 4 months. If you eat really well and train hard you should gain a hell of a lot more by November!

Good luck

I'm 5'8", I'm eating about 3000 cals a day right now. Haven't made any gains in about a month:(. I'm seriously tried of being small.

You may need to eat even more. I was 135 2 years after high school and had to make a conscience effort to stuff my face all the time before I could gain weight. Now I'm at ~190. I was too lazy to track my calories back then, so good job on doing that, but I know I was eating more than 3000.

If you haven't gained any weight in a month, then it's definitely time to start eating more calories.

yeah you definitely look a lot bigger than 140

My legs are pretty small thats where I lose alot of my weight. I love doing squats but can't because of a old hockey injury to my lower back. :(
I don't think I will ever have huge legs but I hope they get a little bigger.

Got a nice taper goin on in the lats. I agree, at your level, if you`re not making any gains something is amiss. You should be making gains hand over fist. Eat more, and make sure you`re getting lots of quality protein, ie. eggs,chicken breasts, tuna !! And for Petes sake lift heavy. Deads, Squats are my favs.

your only 140! If you didnt say your weight id guess youd be at least 160 from those pics.

I wish I was 160, thats my goal for next year. If I can get to 160 by March next year I'll be very happy.

You look a lot larger than 130 in those photos. Perhaps your scale was off?
