Hahaha, What're they gonna say when you get those extra 40 to 50 lbs? Don't pay attention to them. Maybe your folks are threatened that their little boy is taking his life into his own hands? That definitely happens. Maybe your friends are a little jealous that you are changing yourself and don't fit their image of you? Unauthorized and unconsulted changes. That's very possible.Just a thought. How you will look at 200, 210, 220, or 230 really depends on what kind of body type and muscles you have. I am 5'9", just like you, and 212 right now. But because I have compact muscles, I probably look about 200. Yet, I know guys who at 5'9" and 210 look like they are 225 or more. Different body types. So, just go down your own road and stop to evaluate yourself at the mileposts. Just remember, the bigger you get, the more you have to eat to maintain it, so maybe you should hold off on the last 10 or 20 pounds until you're out of school, have a job, and can afford them.
