    Will I ever feel like I am big enough?

    Maybe a dumb question but I think I have a little guy complex. I used to weigh 140 lbs at 5'10" when I got married at 19 years old. I have steadily added weight until I reached about 230 lbs at about 35 and pretty much maintained that for a few years until recently I got up to 245 on a PH cycle which I maintained all of and now after a week of dbol test-e cycle I am up over 255 lbs.

    I feel great but I still don't feel like a beast, also thinking once I cut down eventually, I will probably only weigh 230 (but leaner of course) so now I'm thinking I need to get up to like 270-275 to cut down to 240 at a decent bf% and still feel big. These numbers sound big to me but I still feel normal. What gives?

    My arms should be respectable at 18" and I hope to get them over 19" on this cycle. The arms (biceps actually, triceps are pretty massive comparatively) are probably the one part I feel lag the most.

    Here's what I am getting at. My strength is pretty much where I always dreamed of getting it to when I was younger and on paper I sound like I am a respectable size...but I still feel normal most of the time. Don't get me wrong, I feel great (density, mind-muscle connection, etc.) but I don't feel like I stand out most of the time (though occasionally I realize that I do).

    Anyone else in here who has gotten to a decent size and still feels deficient? Similar experiences? I am wondering if this is maybe common among men who were smaller when they were growing up. Anyone who has ever felt this way ever reached a point where they can say, "yes, I am big as I care to get."

    You will never feel big enough bro. Ever. They coined a term for that. They call it bigorexia. I'm in the same boat as you. Lol sucks

    You will never feel big enough, I grew up heavy so I'll never feel lean enough. Same height and I feel like a massive bloated freak at 225. Its all perspective.

    It depends...I get to the point where I definitely think I'm big enough, but then I want to be more ripped. I cut...then I want to be bigger. That's my sick ass cycle I deal with, but yes I have gotten to the point where I feel "big enough"...just not big and ripped enough.

    sorry to tell you have a mental problem my friend like most of bodybuilders on steroids...your natural body was 140 lbs you can go up gradually to 200 lbs fine you will be lean big and in great shape and health but going to above 250 lbs??????that is insanity and your health will be affected, your internal organs are not designed for this load, your tendons and bones are not, your heart is not ... . i suggest you get this idea of "being big is better" of your head soon before you regret it and if keep going like that i guarantee you one day you will regret it.

    If you cut or sit at the same weight for a while you'll feel small, if you bulk long enough you might feel big but you'll feel soft. There's no happy medium lol

    Unless I understood his post wrong, he got up to 230lbs naturally between the ages of 19 and 35. He took a PH cycle then to get up to 240. If that is the case, his body and frame are well suited to hold the weight and your statement is incorrect.

    I think GMO said it best... when your bulking you feel big, but bloated maybe and want to be more cut. Then you start the cut and look great, but your shirts are loose and mentally that fucks with you. Its a cycle we all deal with my friend.

    I knew bjg would show up in here pretty quick...I hope they're done now. PE can save his energy; we already know their tune and it's an old boring one.

    Looking for personal experiences here. If anyone is against being bigger or stronger then this is not something you have a personal experience with so please save your efforts.

    p.s. as far as mental problem, yes I probably do and this probably isn't the worst of them. There are two kinds of people in this world: people who have mental problems and know it and modify accordingly and people who have mental problems and don't know it and make asses of themselves...I prefer to be among the first group.
