so before when I visited the gym mon to fri...I was self conscious...cuz I look like a stick. T u T
lol

So mainly I was on the elliptical machine everyday 30 or 45 mins... so boring...but at least a tv was in front of me the entire time. xD

I didn't have a goal I just wanted to be a tiny bit more healthy

Now ...a year later... I am going to take a aerobics class and a volleyball class...I get to go to the gym mon-thur all I want now...

I kind of want to do some sort of weight lifting to have some tone...but I still look like a stick...I tried eating more but I didn't even get on pound on >: (

any advice? ^_^;;
Lift heavy anyway. Avoid barbie weights. Eat above your maintenance level to put on weight. Get enough protein, carbs, and fat. Stick to the free weights. Every two weeks or so add more weight to avoid hitting a plateau (about 2 pounds maybe?). High weight low reps. Avoid extreme cardio during this period.

The downside of bulking is that you'll add fat along with healthy muscle. But that can be fixed when you do a cutting phase by eating below the maintenance level and throwing in lots of cardio and heavy weightlifting.

Then eat even more. It is literally the only way to gain weight.

I eat breakfast lunch and dinner every day ever since i got my meal plan. (not going to meals would be a waste of money)
(im in college now)

In high school all i ever ate really was lunch(not all the time) and dinner

Yeah, and so you need to eat even more. Lots of protein, carbs and calories.

i'm the opposite. I look at food, I gain a pound.
confused Lift weights, HEAVY WEIGHTS. Strength training will put some meat on those bones. You are also going to want to do less cardio when you are lifting weights. Cardio eats up muscle. Also make sure to eat plenty. Eat everything in sight too. Lots and lots of protein. Finally, dedication and patience will get you there.

High weights makes sexy women! I got my roommate to start lifting over the summer, and she went from stick legs... to actually having a BUTT! Squats are love.

Yeah, it helps me to concentrate, in particular, because I have Hyperthyroidism, so I occasionally will lose track of what I'm doing if I'm not concentrating.

Headphones + music helps me, so I'm not skipping a routine at the gym or being as embarrassed to exercise in public. But I don't have as big a problem with self-consciousness.

Yeah, I have some advice. Eat more. When I was bulking last winter I went from 180lb to 200lb over a few months. My weight naturally won't budge beyond ~192lb so I began eating MASSIVE portions. If you're not gaining weight at 3000cal/day make that 3200cal/day. Is that not enough? Then eat 3600cal/day. You will gain weight, you just have to eat.

Start lifting heavy weights, and your appetite will probably follow. It did for me.
I gained some weight, but most of my old clothes are too big for me now. Feels nice.
