    I gained 10lbs in 3 weeeks

    Since I started working out 3 weeks ago, I have gained about 10 lbs. I decided to weigh myself last night and was in shock, because I can't see that big of difference. My progression is going great. When I started, I was putting up 45's on db press for 6-8 reps, but I am already up to 65s, and i might even try to throw in 70s on my last set depending on how i do with the 65s. That is just one example, but I am getting there and quickly.

    BTW, when I started I was 5'11", around 155lbs. Now I am about 165.

    Creatine and sometimes protein. I used to eat 1-2 meals a day, and now I eat 4-6 meals a day. I basically eat any time I get hungry.

    Is creatine bad for you? NO. From what I've read...any studies they have done has shown no side effects. It is a natural chemical your own body releases. There are a lot of threads on this site that talk about it. Do a search on it and you'll get more info.

    There aren't any studies advanced enough to say whether or not there are negative side effects on creatine, but there are some ominous facts about dosage, and some premliminary research showing side effects. There needs to be a lot more research on it.

    Huh? Creatine is one of the most heavily researched supplements in existence. There is far more evidence as to its efficacy and safety than for most prescription drugs. The longest study thus far studied creatine use over a 4 year period and showed no impact on hepatic or renal functioning in those without pre-existing problems.

    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesn’t realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.

    Actually, I just make it all up. Just toss in some random figures and one or two fancy, scientific sounding words and you can fool just about anybody.

    Its mostly water weight. Everytime I load on creatine I gain roughly 6 lbs in a one to two week period.

    8lbs of that is water weight from the Creatine. When I used to take Creatine at full dose, it would be pretty standard to gain 6-8 pounds in 3 weeks in water weight.

    plus if you are eating 4-6 meals a day now from 1-2, that might help you gain weight, but otherwise, keep it up!!!
    Don't just call me pessimist. Try and read between the lines. I can't imagine why you wouldn't Welcome any change, my friend. I wanna see it all come down. suck it down. flush it down.

    Nah. He's just got a hard-on for crowbars. Don't ask me why.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
