    Right now I've put on 16 pounds in 3 months, from 148 to 164. My target weight is 180 pounds. I'm 5'9.

    It seems like 16 more pounds is alot, but the first 16 pounds doesn't seem like all that much in retrospect.

    Basically, what I'm asking is, would I look funny at 5'9 and 180? I'm a n00b to the whole bulking thing, and adding 32 pounds total to what I weighed before just seems like a ton :hs:

    :cool:

    I'm hoping my clothes will still fit, so far no problems, except I can't button the top button on my dress shirts anymore if I need to wear a tie :hs:

    to be 5' 9" and only weigh 180lbs is more than possible. I am 5' 10" and weigh 212lbs right now. Granted, you started at 148lbs and I dont think I have weighed 148lbs since the middle school (in college now). You have already put on 16lbs which is really good, but eventually your body will start to hit a wall where it is going to be inreasingly hard to put on more weight. In times like this you try to get over that wall with even more dedication, a good diet, and some weight gainer. It is perfectly possible for you jump upto 180lbs and even more, it just might take more time than the original 16lb gain took.

    Good luck.
