There's only but so much muscle you will build, through your entire life, training naturally and frankly that's not going to happen all in one year or even 3 years. So don't be in a hurry to get big. Learn to train, learn the big exercises, learn to love the gym. That all comes with time, just like your weight gain should.
I really like this answer.
