I never thought it would get this hard.
I used to be a fat kid up until about 2 years ago when I started eating right and running. Then about 14 months ago I started lifting weights. I never really went on a bulk but I steadily put on weight from December of '06 at about 155lbs to beginning of January '08 at 184lbs.
Over the past 7 weeks or so I've put on about 10lbs....but its getting so freakin hard! Ever since I started getting in shape about 2 years ago I really watched what I ate and never ate too much.....because its really easy for me to get fat. But now, its getting ridiculous. If I don't eat at least until I'm FULL then I start dropping weight fast and noticeably. I have to eat at least until my stomach hurts or else I know I'm not even going to be able to maintain.
The truth is, in the beginning, it was a lot of fun eating a crapload all the time, but now its becoming such a chore. Every single meal is getting hard to finish. My standard 1/2 dozen eggs that I've been eating every morning since the beginning of the year seems to be getting bigger and bigger and my stomach is getting smaller.
Am I just a freak or is this pretty standard to run into a weight gaining wall 7 weeks out of the gate?
