    gaining weight, not losing it or am i??everyone feel my pain!

    Hey everybody, hope all is well. How many of you have taken 6 months off, and gained like 10 pounds of fat and lost 10 lbs of muscle?? It's a sad transformation to say the least! Isn't it unreal how fast strength and size come back to you through muscle memory!?? I've been liftingwith a 5 by 5 routine and boxing and running 5 days a week for the last month. I am staying at the same weight even though i'm only eating 1800 cals dails in 6 meals of mostly protein, and beating myself up in the gym! I am putting on muscle so fast that it's making me gain weight faster than i'm losing the fat!!!!! does this drive anyone else crazy??

    Ahnold says, " milk is for babies!"
    "deadlift if you know"- myself
    Boxing/ working out 5 days a week!
    6'1"- 230lbs-and bulking till i can't stand the mirror
    Former fatass- whent from 302lbs to 207 lbs rippling 05-06
    bench 315
    deadlift 455
    squat 405
    big 3 total = 1175 lbs of RAW IRON!!!MUAHAHAHAHAHA

    Gaining at 1800 cals no. That is almost what I cut at.
    Never shall innocent blood be shed, yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The Three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of God.

    hahah i believe thats lower than my cut at least at the beginning of my cut


    you must have gotten pretty sloppy
    Way down this road, in a gym far away, a young man was once heard to say, "I've repped high and I've repped low, No matter what I do my legs won't grow."

    He tried leg extensions, leg curls, and leg presses, too. Trying to cheat these sissy workouts he'd do. From the corner of the gym where the big men train, Through a cloud of chalk and the midst of pain.

    Where the big iron rides high and threatens lives, Where the noise is made with big forty fives. A deep voice bellowed as he wrapped his knees, A very big man with legs like trees.

    Laughing as he snatched another plate from the stack, Chalking his hands and monstrous back, Said "Boy stop lying and don't say you've forgotten, Trouble with you is you ain't been SQUATTIN"

    How are you 227 lbs and gaining ANYTHING at 1800 cals/day? That would put your maintainence calories somewhere in the 1300-1500 ballpark, which is likely the same as my 13 year old sister.

    Health goals
    - Weigh a healthy and active 170-180, healthy mind and body
    - Dunk a basketball (hey a man can have big dreams huh)
    - Swim 2-3x/week and become a better swimmer

    i know it doesn't make sense, but i now weigh 231-232 lbs! i have been gaining. i think my muscle memory(my body as well) is determined to put the muscles i aquired 6 months ago back on me and fast. that's all i eat, maybe 2000 some days but no more than that. i'm eating practically only protein, and slow digesting carbs and healthy fats. my strength is going through the roof though. i think i am unique?

    The mirror means a lot more then the scale does. You could be retaining water for some reason, who knows. Post pic's in the members section if you have them, if not start taking them. They will show you whats going on better then the scale will.

    i like your sig, it's completely true. yeah the mirror is looking better than ever, i guess it's just tough to try as hard as you can to cut, and be doing it correctly and watch the scale move in the wrong direction. it happened to me back and forth while i lost the 90 lbs over 05 to 06. one week i would gain 2 lbs then the next i'd lose 2 lbs. one week stay the same weight, next week lose 2 lbs. etc.
