    Hello

    Hey everyone,

    Just thought i would introduce myself. i have been reading the forums for awhile and thought that it was about time that i joined to share my wealth of knowledge on a variety of different topics. yes, i am joking. i probably wont be able to help anyone else out much but hey, who knows

    i have been lifting for about a year and a half. i am 170cm tall and started out at about 55kg (120 lbs). now im up to 81kg and starting to look a bit more respectable

    i wont bore ya's with too much more. just thought i would say hello.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone.
    Exnor, it hasnt been half a year. It has been a year and a half, probably getting closer to 2 years now. I think i started in about june or july 2001. I wouldnt have a clue what my bodyfat is. The way I see it, is that if I look good, I feel good. I am not too concerned if I put on some fat along the way. As long as my weight is going up and I am getting stronger that is

    Just wanted to make sure the extra weight wasnt mostly fat! But if you look good, damn thats excellent.

    Oops i meant 1.5 years sorry, no difference to the post tho, thats a hell of a lot of weight to gain in that time. Nice one

    No worries Exnor. There is no doubt that some of it is fat. Its nowhere near 26 or so kilograms of pure muscle (i wish!). I should probably go on a cut for awhile, but I might leave it for another month or two. I will see how things go.
    I wasnt eating at all well 2 years ago, probably having at best 2 or 3 small meals a day. Then I started reading a lot more on the net about muscle gain etc. and started having 5 or 6 meals a day. And I started training the correct way. I workout at most 3 times a week, lately only 2 times a week. Less is certainly better.

    Sorry 2massive I havent got a pic. I want to get a bit bigger before I take any pics. I have this weird thing where if I take a pic and I think I look good I feel as though I wont put as much effort into training etc. Does anyone else get that way? Or am I just a freak?

    Howdy. Welcome to the board. Are you still bulking?

    Hi fen....hope you enjoy the site and welcome!
    If figureskating was easy they'd call it hockey. me
    If it's important they'll call back. me

    The question isn't who is going to let me;
    its who is going to stop me.
    Ayn Rand

    And so it begins,
    My eyes wide, yet I see only darkness.
    The world is mine, yet it crumbles with my touch.
    I can touch the stars with my thoughts,
    But the simplest of pleasures denied.
    All things must end they say;
    to end before beginning?
    Tis the sadest loss of all.
    M.P. (poet and author)

    Thanks everyone for making me feel welcome. Even had a few chickies drop by and say hello, how good is that?!

    Homeyield, yes I am still bulking. Since I live in Australia and it is going to be getting cold soon I might just continue to bulk for a bit longer. Probably til about may. Then have a small cut for a month to see how it goes, then start bulking again til about the start of spring. It all depends on how I look, and more importantly how I feel.
