Reached My Target

Ive been bulking for the last 3 months with the intention of reaching 200ibs, checked the scales this morning & i'm 200.5ibs. Can't help but think I should bulk abit more. Is this a common feeling when goals are achieved?
Current stats are:

Age: 22
Weight: 200.5ibs
Height: 5'9.5
Chest: 43"
Biceps: 17"
Thighs: 32"

    because te changes are so gradual mate, it sometimes feels like nothings changed, have a look at a photo of yourself when you started bulking and youll know whether you are done or not

    You are not your Job
    You're not how much money you have in the Bank
    You're not the car you Drive
    You're not the contents of your Wallet
    You're not your ****in Khakis
    You are the all singing all dancing crap of the World.

    Yes mate.

    I started off wanting 16" guns, then 17", then 18" now my sights are on 19" before the end of the year!

    It depends. Some people gain more fat than muscle and vice versa. Weight is so unpredictable. I mean i would look different if i was 30 pounds heavier with 75% muscle, 20% water, 5% fat, compared to 30 pounds heavier with a ratio of 20% muscle, 50% fat, 30% water.

    So if you stayed fairly lean, then I would continue. If you gained too much fat, I'd probably stop.

    I didn't think my BF was that high when I hit 220lbs but after two months of cutting i'm down to about 200 and still have a wee bit to go. Most of the fat went on the bottom of my back so didn't notice it that much. Think it was the right decision to cut though, feels good being back in the old jeans.

    Very common IMO. I don't think I'll ever be content with my physique and strength/fitness. I know it's a cliche, but bodybuilding is a journey, not a destination.

    Waist Size: 32"

    Although i often have to wear 34/36" jeans because of my thighs. I've decided to now cut for 3 months starting from the end of the month. That will then give me 6 months of bulking which will hopefully leave me in better shape for cutting next spring. So im ready for summer. But of a long term plan i know!

    Constantly changing my goals.
    Reached 15 stone. Still looked the same as when I was 14 stone.

    Reached 100kg. Still look the same as when I was 15 stone.

    Got 17" biceps. Still don't look any bigger than last year or the year before.






    Reached 36" waist - I definitely noticed that!!!!
