I don't know if I wasn't feeling 100% today or if adding a measly 5lbs to a squat can really make that big a difference, but man did that feel heavy. Other than that everything else went fine. I've also started adding a few hundred more calories to my diet because I stopped growing. Hopefully this will help.

I'm at 182lbs now, which is good considering I started at 165lbs. But I hit the 180 mark weeks ago. I've been reading the nutrition forum and found a few mistakes I was making with my diet. So I'm adding more calories, but I need to find higher calorie foods because I just can't shove anymore food down.

Dude, seriously! I constantly feel like I'm on the verge of puking. I've been eating a lot of chicken, turkey, eggs and skim milk, but I just switched over to whole milk which is double the calories. And I think I'm gonna go back to red meat, atleast during the bulking phase as that should be more calories than chicken. I don't know how you big guys do it. lol

What are your daily fats at right now? Peanut butter can jack your calories up pretty quick. Or olive oil.

I can relate to this...a few times I have added 5 pounds and it felt like 20 pounds, but then my strength would go up after a few workouts at that weight and it would become easier. Gotta keep pushing it!
