    Incidentally I am also 6'2" 195 with 14% bf. I also have similar goals.

    btw, do you have a mole of the left arm?

    I like what Belial said although I don't get admiring looks with my shirt off.
    Ultimately I would like to hit 250 under 16% bf.
    Anymore would be a bonus.

    "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!"

    As I'm already on the heavy end, and like how I look as I get bigger/stronger, I'd like to continue that trend. I'm currently 6'1", 245-250 lbs with somewhere in the range of 19% bf tuttut . I guess I'd like to end up in the 250-260 pound range but have the bf down to 13-15% within the next few years, or longer.

    Of course, if I could somehow grow another couple of inches...

    I have to admit that I'm slightly muscle dismorphic. Bodybuilding doesn't consume my life, but it's a huge part of it. At the end of this last cycle I hit 180lbs at 5'7... maybe 7% bodyfat. I have to say that I look good when compared to my old pics, but I look in the mirror and still think that I'm skinny as hell.

    I wouldn't mind being a nice 5'8-5'9 215-225lbs at 7%bf. I think I can put on the weight given some time, but I'll prolly have to stick with 5'7 huh? lol.

    Heehe, tadge, short man's folley? We can never be big enough.

    I'm right now about 158lbs, 11-13%bf, an inch and a half shorter than tadger. I plan on being 185 at 10% fat one of these days, when I get a job with a set weekly schedule. Part time blows the chode.

    a lot of you guys are listing what you want your weight anod bodyfat %s to be, but keep in mind two things:

    1) you can only get so big, do to genetics, not everyone can be Mr.O

    2) you really cant have bodyfat too low for the rest of your life ( you can't have 5% forever).

    seeing how arnold was about 235 when he competed, and he was on 'special suppls' i'd like to be around 220. i mean i dont wanna look freaky.

    TripleP, depending on your genetics... you can maintain a nice 6-7%bf for quite a while without health problems. If you drop it below that you may run into problems.

    As far as everyone not being Mr O... true true... but the goals most have stated are entirely possible (given time, proper diet, training and smart drug use).

    Muscle dysmorphy also affects women too...and someone once kindly pointed that out to me.

    Currently: 5'6", 165-ish, ~15-18%
    Desire: To be as big and strong as I can NATURALLY. Ideally - if I could be at this bf and hit 190, I would happier than a pig in mud. I might scare some people - but at least I'll be BIG.

    I'm eventually shooting for:

    225lbs @ 5'11 and 10%bf
    Chest 52
    waist 33
    arm 18
    Proportional legs, shoulders, etc. those are just the basics. Not huge but in good shape. I want people to see me and say "wow, that's a big guy" but I don't want to go past my 'natural' limits, if there are such things (i.e. I want to get as big as I can without AS..maybe).
    Now in pain, only working out the walking sticks.

    Scratch everything I said. I want to be in great shape, whatever that ends up being. I don't care what the measurements are.

    Right now I'd like to be 180 at 10% bf (realistically). If I can reach that then I'd go for more. Unrealisitically - 250 and cut.

I realize this is "bigger" than the ideal, but with my build (large shoulders, large joints, etc.) I need more weight to appear as built as a person with a smaller frame (and the same weight). Not to get into a bigorexia argument here... I used to want to be 245... then 235... now, I'm only a little ways off from my goal.

    One of the main things that changes is we realize, once we get somewhere, that we're not nearly as big as we thought. And perspectives change....what was once unattainable is now within our reach. Aesthetics differ, goals differ (I wish to be strong, and certainly look like I work out, yet lean. Weight is almost inconsequential, it's how happy I am with myself.) So, it may not be society's ideal, but who gives a sh*t. I get admiring looks when I take my shirt off. I get smiles. They're not "look at that freak", I think I walk the line. (No, this ain't pumping myself up. I'm far from perfect, but I've worked hard and I think it shows)

    But, at the end of the day, we all do what makes us happy. I know what it's like to be at both ends of the spectrum, obsession is not something I would want to be victimized by again.
    Belial, has put it best. I don't even have anything to add to this. Well said, nothing less nothing more.

    For my goals I want to be 5"9.5, 235@ 8%bf that would be great. That would also be my off-season size, competition size would be totally different. But that would be great for everyday.
