First, i would like to thank WBB for all the help. I know Im nowhere near most posters here, or nowhere near what I want to be or near my potential. My main reason for making this post is to keep track my my progress(or lack there of) Ive been doing a modified WBB1 workout(I know I should have stuck with the WBB1 but Im hardheaded LOL) My ultimate goals are to gain another 20# and get down to about 15% bf, I prefer the "thick" look to the skinny toned look myself. I would guess Im about 24-25% bf as my damn gut has really stuck out some. I started at 130 and am now at about 165. Im 5'7" also.
Be gentle I know Im not a body builder or even close. Please ignore the chesthair in the first picture HAHA. Ill try to get some of my legs, but there not even worth noting. WHen I look in the mirror I still see the same skinny guy, anyone else feel the same way even after adding some weight(even if its mostly fat LOL)?
Start picture here(all pictures are clickable to enlarge)

EDIT: forgot to add, for suppliments Ive taken nothing but 2 protien shakes a day and been eating pretty good and creatine. For about a month I kinda slacked up but have been pretty steady since. I did take a can of weight gainer once, and plan to again as it seems to be getting harder for me to pack on the pounds lately. I keep reading I need to take fish oil too, but havnt gotten to that yet. Sorry the pictures suck so bad also, Ill try to get better ones eventually, once I actually have something to show off lol

35 lbs over 5 months? I would say that is great progress. Dang you were skinny lol. Good work.

We'd have to see pictures of the gut, but by looking at your back I couldn't imagine you being 20-25% bodyfat. You've made some good gains, too.

Keep lifting and eating tons and youll be huge.

BIG improvement man. Hard to tell with the pic but you don't look anywhere near 25%.

Yeah hard to tell BF% without seeing the gut. But it's not anything near 25%

Took a few pics tonight, none really showed my gut like it is though. This is the best one to show. From the front, it looked allmost flat which is completly untrue. If I turn the flash on, it doesnt show any of the fat. You can kinda see it under my boob(allmost at the armpit area). Its more of a bloated look than fat I guess. My upper stomach sticks out farther than the mid and lower part does. I guess its the creatine. I tried to be as relaxed as possible in this picture.
I am seriously considering going with the atlarge "kit". I hear nothing but great things about it.
Thanks for the compliments guys, although I have so far left to go its not even funny

No worries man. Keep doing what you've been doing. It's a journey not a race.
