These are just some before and afters of me a long time ago. I want to take a before picture of me now... And then take another one once I get up to 200lbs by the end of march.

Here is the after..I don't really remember exactly how much of time gap was in between.
I agree, nice improvement but the calves need to eat.

Good change on the upper body.

Those pics are kinda old but I agree my calves......are definitely lacking. Lately I've actually felt like I had muscle so that is good.

Exactly which pharmaceutical aids do you plan on using?
Like I said. Those pics are really old. I just wanted to post a pic. I was probably 160lbs in the second pic. I'm 178 right now. All I have to do is gain a pound a week and I'll be quite close to 200lbs by the end of march. Is that not realistic?
Is 200lbs by the end of march seriously out of the question?

"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!"

I've heard that you should try to keep your calves and your biceps the same size. Is this true? Because if it is it doensn't make any sense because my calves are definitely my worst bodypart and my biceps definitely the best on my body and even still my calves are bigger. Can somebody clear this up for me?
People say calves/biceps/neck should be the same size to give an image of symmetry ... but I wouldn't be concerned. Make everything as big as you can, and people won't notice your calves are 1" bigger or smaller. Good progress, btw!

It's something that traditionally has come up in competitions. If the calves and arms differ by an inch, it's enough to catch a judge's attention. My arms are currently lagging behind my calves. Neither of which are very great, so I've got work to do on both.
Here is me at 189lbs. About 20lbs heavier than the last pics.
Damn, gaining pretty fast eh? Good progress bro, keep it up.

Thanks..i gained 20lbs in 3 months. But have stalled since holidays. I will be back at it soon though. My back...I didn't realize it was so underdeveloped though.
ah crap...i didn't put it up..and now i can't find the back pic.
I've got a question. The 20lbs I put on came very easy. The more weight I have on me now..is that going to make it harder to put on more weight. Like is it going to mean that I have to eat a lot more?
You are right about your back being behind. Make sure you are doing those heavy DLs, chins, and rows!!
Good job with the gain.
FYI - you need to increase the cals as you get bigger. Just add 250 or so per day until you start to gain again.
