So I've been steadily loosing weight since about November when I weighed in at 178lbs. I started a new diet on Jan 1 and started going to the gym for about 2 hours a night 4-6 times a week. The first set of measurements were taken on 1.6.06 and the second set tonight 1.22.06. in order to save time, I'll list only the measurements that increased (none of my measurements decreased). All measurements taken COLD. Weight - 168lbs down to 163lbs Shoulders- 44" to 46.5" Chest - 38.5" to 41" Bicepts - 13" to 14" Forearms - 11" to 11.5" Hips - 37" to 38" Thighs - 21.5" to 23" Calves - 13" to 15.5" so is this about typical for (what I consider myself) "beginners"? And if I continue my routine and diet, should I expect to see similiar results with each passing week? Before I get a bunch of posts about everyone bulks/builds/cuts different, I know. I just want a generalization. Does anyone have any tips about how to steadily increase in size while on my diet? I'm currently only taking 100% Whey, because that's all I can afford at the moment.
