Always remember that working out doesn't make you bigger, eating does. If you want to put on some weight you have to eat right and eat enough, which is so antithetical to everything in the media. Working out is what tells your body what to do with the extra food, but the food is where the muscle comes from.

Well, working out usually makes me want to eat more. When I took up an exercise that beefed me a bit, I started eating everything in sight. The result was both muscles and gaining weight.

...though when I stopped working out it all started turning into flub so...--I MEAN I'M BEAUTIFUL AND BARBIES SUCK.
