    So I think I'm gaining some fat along with the muscle. No bueno. I suppose that's to be expected though. 2 more weeks and on to my cut. I'll be happy as long as I can look good in a bikini.

    What makes you think this? Do you just 'think' you are, or do you have solid reason to believe you are?

    Most people who aren't used to making gains freak out and think they're getting fat. That's likely the case with you, but i'll hold off on speculating until I hear your reply.

    This is exactly what i'm talking about!! What about measurements, have you been taking them? How do your clothes fit? What about pic comparisons?

    BG...don't stress over a little bloat here or there. It happens...salt, the wave, BM, daily intake, humidity...blah blah blah blah blah....

    Took me a while to figure this out...cuz I stressed out everytime I gained a .2 of a pound (when I was loosing)....

    Good deal. A combination of measurements, pics, clothes fittings, BF% measurements and the scale will give you a great indication of what's happening with your body. I realize doing all these things is a pain in the ass... hell, I haven't taken pics in 4-5 months!

    Hey Gearbox! Thanks for stopping by... Well, My stomach looks great in the morning and as soon as I eat, it gets all bloated until the next morning!

    And no, Slfmade wouldn't quit, we try to keep each other motivated! Plus working out is what keep his stress level lower. He's always in a better mood after the gym!

    Took my pics last Monday but haven't uploaded them yet. Weight had increased to 95.5lbs. According to my measurements my waist has gone up by .5 inches and my stomach by .25. So I was probably correct in thinking that I had gained a bit of fat. No worries though. I KNOW I've gained muscle.


    Starting my cut tomorrow. 1400 calories with a 43/43/16 split(Approx). No dairy, no unnecessary carbs and plenty of water.

    Officially started the cut two days ago at 95lbs (well on MY scale..which I think is wrong but doesn't matter).

    Here are a couple of pics before the cut. I'll post pics right at the end of the two weeks. In these you can see that my abs aren't as visible but my shoulders and chest muscles have definitely grown.

    Even though I'm on a calorie deficit, I seem to be making strength gains. I also did 4 unassisted pullups yesterday. This is the first time I've been able to do even 1. So personal best for me!
