I eventually got to 176 lbs, which I managed to maintain for a few months. Then I quickly went down to 165 lbs. Then I had to write a master thesis, still lifted for a while but then the pandemic hit, so I stopped lifting and started eating less to avoid getting fat, so currently I am at 155 lbs.
I am not going to claim that being a hard gainer is a real thing, I am probably just not dedicated enough. I don't mind being skinny though, fuck fatties.
