The only people who'll appreciate you as you bulk are other lifters?

    ever since I started bulking nov 05 = 140lbs today = 155lbs my gf and her friends tell me I've gotten fat. :ugh: All these girls (and some guys :ugh: ) think I used to be much "buffer" when i was 140 and only exercised my arms/chest.

    People at my gym think I'm finally starting to put on decent size and "look good now".

    Anyone else find the "fat" comments annoying? :down:

    Who cares. If you want to get big then get big. Just correct them.


    Out of curiosity, since you've only gained 15 lbs and people are saying you're fat, how much has your bf% increased? 15 lbs in 7 months isn't very much if your bf% is much higher.

    I got a layer of fat around my tummy now otherwise not much fatter than before.

    I think it's the increased size of my legs/back that make my frame look bigger.

    Most of my male friends who dont lift tease me about getting fat (I do defenitely have a bit of a gut now), 90% of girls who have mentioned it seem to like it alot, and my parents are convinced I'm some steroid-swilling man-beast that is going to die of a heart attack at the ripe age of 25 if i don't get skinny like I used to be. When I told them my long-term goal is ~240 lean, they asked if I wanted to talk to a psychologist or something :ugh:

    Never experienced that, but I've only been cutting and losing weight. Haven't started a bulk phase yet..

    I plan on a seriously clean ass bulk.. so I don't feel it'll be a concern.

    My gf now thinks I'm getting too small when under 167lbs.
    At 170lbs she thinks I look the best though she's the first to tell if I'm gaining or losing.

    At the bar, one of the doormen who lfts seriously can tell when I'm losing size. Women actually think I look bigger as I get more cut ...though only up to a point... then everyone notices I'm losing size.

    A girl the other day told me that my chest was looking very defined. It's because I've cut 25lbs since my bulk. :mamoru:

    I never care what people say. I make jokes about being on a plan to be the ugliest guy on the planet bulking up to get huge... and bitch when I lose weight. Girls just tell me "I hate you." or things like that... its kinda funny
