Looking for help.

I have zero experience in body building.
I'm 20 years old, male.

I'm self concious about my body.
I'm not fat, im just slim.

I want to have bigger arms, chest, back and legs.
I want to get bigger and gain size.

I want to feel better about myself.

My backround: Used to love sports until I found myself
smoking weed and playing videogames becoming
very lazy.

I've decided to quit videogames, quit porn, I've been off
weed now for over a year. I used all those things to mend
the pain of losing the girl I love....

Just two weeks ago I've decided to go vegan.

I don't want to just become an attractive guy, I want to
better my health, be inspiration to others one day, try
and find happiness.

I know diet is the first place to start and then the exercise...
it seems simple. Eat food, exercise, build muscle.. feel better.

Just any advice would be great if anyone has it, it sort of
is a pain not knowing where exactly to look. If anyone is interested
in helping me or offer some advice that would be cool, if not I'm
sure you're probably just in the similar shoes I am in. If so
say hi, we'll get to know eachother or something sort of like a
pen pal.

I know many experts probably aren't reading this, but I'm just sick
of the way I am. And ready to change....(I think).

Roberts book, any of Brendan Braziers books, or meat is for pussies are all good recommendations for you and your new journey.

You can get a lot of good info from this site if you do some searching.

Also you have a lot of positive wants, dont wait to be told what to do, figure out what exactly you want to do, you know set tangible goals like be healthy is not tangible but lower your body fat percentage or your chlorestoral level or be able to bench a certain weight, or squat, or do 100 push ups. Then you'll have something to work towards that you can measure your progress.

I'm pretty happy the way I am. It seems the more good food I eat,
the less videogames I play, the more I go out the better I feel.
(Still a bit of negative thinking).

Today was my first day at the gym and let me tell you it wasn't EASY.
Well it sort of was because I was using just low weights.
I worked my biceps and chest.
There was a friendly guy there who was giving me some pointers while doing a barbell exercise talking about width and grip.
He seemed really friendly.

I did a few exercises before doing some concentrated curls,
I couldn't even do 8 proper reps of just 10 lbs.
It felt like my arms were like a balloon and I couldn't curl all the way up...
there is also a water fountain there.

So at the end of the workout I went to go do some stretches THEN I started to feel really naucious so I had to get out of there and take my bike home.
I looked it up and it seems like I'm maybe just out of shape and my body is adjusting.
It really sucked though, I'm not sure if there's a puke bucket lol
