if you want to lift weights, please do it for the reason being that it will make you look healthier, and THEN the next step would be to buy clothes to fit you then, just my 2 cents, but I guess if you have clothes that you want to fit into, yeah I guess that would be a viable option

A lot of people think this, but I have incredibly thin wrists and forearms and I'm hitting 46 chest, and have about 3 times the size upper arms and shoulders of my forearms (obviously that part exaggerated, but you catch my drift.) Forearms and (wrist included) is one of the hardest things to build IMO...
