These are some pics of me at 124 lbs...
You realize you're uploading thumbnails of larger pictures right?
22 - 5'10@236lbs!
Bench - 325 (old)
Squat - 455x2 (old)
Deadlift - 500(old)
Total: 1280lbs 100% raw
The key to my exercise program is this one simple truth: I hate my body.
Where's the pics of you at 151?
aha ****, right as I posted that you posted the pics, my bad!
PS. Saw the pics, you definitly put on weight, but it looks like alot of it is fat (not trying to offend!)...what does your routine/diet look like?

151 lbs continued.... I wanna continue bulking till I graduate in May. I am 23, and about 5'8-5'9. Any comments or suggestions? I wrote in the new members section when I began. I had been really skinny all thru high school and college, so this whole bulking thing is a first.
I try to fit in about 5 meals a day
Lunch- 4-5 chicken filets
Snack- Fetticini, or 3 chicken strips
I also drink a protien shake before and after bed.
I lift MWF, mixing up my workout, but hitting back, lats, biceps, triceps, abs, quads, hamstrings, and calves.
Sry, I do, I do bench, military press, pushups, incline bench, seated rows, all kinds of stuff for those...
You definately look like a different person in the second set of pics. If I was you, I would stay at 150-155 for a while and lift heavy. Try to turn some of your fat into mass, then bulk again. Good job putting on those 27lbs. though
funny thing about the fat, I didn't ever anticipate it being a problem, I always saw myself as a typical hardgainer ectomorph, I stayed in the 120's pretty much my entire adult life, untill this year, the most i ever weighed was about 131-132. My ultimate goal right now is to get as big as possible, then cut. I'm not so concerned with the fat at this point, because I think I can probably shed it relatively fast, but then again, I have never had to shed fat before. hahaha... Can you turn fat into anything?? hahahahahahahahaha! I would like to get up to around 180 and see how that looks. Again, I am not so afraid of the beefy look, and my belly isn't so big in the morning, as it is at night after eating a ton! haha. My jeans are all still 29 inch waist, and I wear them daily with little problem, the only place they are tight is on my thighs.

Man I'm in the same boat as you. I was 130-135 for sooo long, then after working out for a few months now I'm 151lbs. And the better thing is I've gained very little fat- I just make sure I eat right (I eat alot of nuts, tuna, meat, pasta, fruits, drink MILK!!) and I lift heavy. My routine is like
Thurs: (same as monday)
Friday: (same as tuesday)
That way everything is getting worked twice! I'd reccommend it to you as its working pretty good for me (ectomorph). Also, I squeeze in a couple bi/tri/trap excercises whenever I feel like it.
Another thing, I'm on a weight gainer, its by Ultimate Nutrition and its called ISO Mass Xtreme Gainer- it works veeeerrrryyyy good. Its got 640 cal. in it with very little fat and sugar. As well as 65 g of protein (whey, egg, etc.) and as a bonus, 7 diff. types of creatine. The guys at Popeyes said it was the best gainer they have, so I'd definitly reccommend it to you as its working pretty good for me.
edit: heres a link to the gainer

Do something like this...
Meal 1: Shake consisting of 1 cup oats, 1-2 tbsp olive oil, 2 cups skim milk, 2 scoops whey
Meal 2:4-5 Chicken fillets, brocolli (or anything green you like), brown rice/baked potato
Meal 3: Protein shake in milk/water and some mixed nuts, and w/e fruit you like
Meal 4: Chicken with some type of vegetable and complex carb like brown rice or whole wheat bread/whole wheat noodles
Meal 5: Same as meal 1
You'd have to guage how many cals you need because this would be a ton for a 150 lb guy so you might want to cut it down in some places like half a cup of oats instead of 1 cup in the shake and what not.

Take the advice of the experienced people, because you got yourself fat.
even if you gained some fat, you still look waayyyyy better then before. nice job man.
You look much better than before... now gain 30 more pounds, and make sure you're getting enough protein.

When posing, try to SPREAD your shoulders apart. Instead of pulling your shoulder blades together, try to spread them apart and a little forward to bring out your lats. You may need to work on your posture aswell. Look at your side shot. Your shoulders are sitting way back and it looks really awkward. Nice job on gaining 27lbs. If it were me, i'd maintain at around 160 for a couple months and then bulk up again.

great progress! I'm with detard. Maintain ~160 for a few months and give your heart a chance to catch up!
To those saying "he got fat": Do you really think he should be doing a slow bulk at 5'8" 120 lbs?
