    Hi There,

    I am just wondering how much weight you have all gained while building/bulking?

    Thats not bad at all. I am pretty lean right now and I feel ready for maintenance then obviously building but I'm just curious on the weight gain.

    Check out this thread here: http://www.leanbodiesfitness.com/showthread.php?10187-BULKING

    I dieted for far too long for my body (6 months) and I rebounded BAD. I went through a maintenance phase where I gained 10 lbs in 2 weeks, then I gained 15 lbs over the next 5 months during a building phase, so 25 lbs total in 6 months.

    Thanks for the thread I actually saw it after I posted this question, my bad.. :-/ I've been dieting since the end of Dec but I went on vacation last week and ate very well.. lol However, I do feel ready for maintenance now. I'm 5'7 134lbs and I wouldn't want to get any leaner, I feel lean enough.
    Sorry to hear about your rebound and weight gain.. yikes.. I'm hoping I won't gain to much. 10lbs is ok but I would't want to gain any more than that..

    I have been building for about 4 months. I have gained around 3 pounds, but my weight fluctuates. That number may be lower depending on the day. It's definitely not without context tho. I look better/leaner than when I started 3 pounds lighter. My pictures are better and my measurements are better :)

    Hi Elisabeth,

    I bulked for 6 months and gained 8 pounds. I actually enjoyed the process ~ not only did I look leaner (despite the gain), but I was able to eat endlessly ~ lol

    Elisabeth looks like we are at about the same place, I am the same height and weight as you and at my next Bi-Weekly I'll be asking my coach to but me on a building program too, I'm a little nervous about the weight gain but I am looking forward to trying something I haven't done before.

    Thats great to hear. I wasn't sure if I was lean enough or if I should lean out more but I don't feel like I need to lean out any more, I'm ready. Although, I'm a little worried about gaining too. I've worked hard to lose weight... eeeeekkkk.. BUT, I want muscles lol so I'm ready! I know I can lean out again with no issues. :dumbbells:

    I try to focus on my pictures...I know I'm training for a look not a number...I the the scale, no lie...get an app you can do side by side pictures. It helps keep things in perspective :)

    Diptic is a good app, I use it to do comparisons and it's good for making collages of your family or holiday pics too.

    On leanness, I know I could go further, but I've been dieting on and off since July last year (I did take a break at maintenance for 3 months between December and March) and frankly I am over it. I just don't think I've got the muscle I thought I did and I've never trained while eating to support it so I'm looking forward to it, especially as we are going into winter here, I could use the extra food.

    That should say I HATE the scale. Stupid autocorrect on my phone. Hahaha. I use piccollage and framatic...I downloaded a few free ones. They definitely help me stay in check!

    Well, I've been bulking since June 18th and Ive gained 3lbs as of this morning lol.. I feel great and I still feel lean but I do see that I am not as lean as I was though.. BUT I can't wait to lean out again and see the little bit of muscle I did gain :)

    I've just finished my 8th week and I'm up about 3kg, here's hoping some of that is muscle, I'll probably pull the pin at 10 weeks and start cutting.
