Thanks, but I think I misunderstood the post. I'm 171 trying to go up to 180, and I would have a really hard time losing scale weight because I have worked so hard to reach 171 although not lean. I will go back and read your thread "To Bulk or Cut" where you essentially eat for the maintenance of a 180 lb guy, and eventually will reach your goal. Seems simple, although slower route perhaps.
