Welcome Jon. You need to be aware that some people do not put on a lot of muscle mass, they just get stronger. It's only about 1% of people who will end up looking like Arnie Doodah if the pump iron.

As long as I can get into a pair of 36" trousers for Christmas and feel like I'm looking like the right shape, I'll be happy as I know that there are people who can weigh more than I do now who look good.
Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
