    Sad to hear of it. I hope you can manage to continue what you started.

    Thanks, RAMA. Today, I checked my blood pressure and thanks to medicine, I was back in normal range. :D

    Tonight I increased my deadlift to 385 lbs.
    I was actually planning to go for 380, but the exact plates were all tied up, so I just decided to push myself a little harder, and I made it. :cool:

    Just getting back into exercising. I have been suffering with depression for over a year. I am now feeling a little better and trying to get myself out and about more. Went on my first jog/quick walk today. I didn't go far but it counts, I'm hoping to build up my speed and distance quickly. :hugegrin: I used to be quite fit so I'm hoping to get back to as I was.

    Excellent start, @bajorangirl. :techman:
    Exercise helped me with that a great deal.

    Well... this thread has been quiet for a while. :confused:

    My previous dead lift personal record was 385 lbs (174.63 kg). Tonight I pushed that up to 390 lbs (176.9 kg), and then 395 lbs (179.17 kg). :cool:

    Nice! :)

    I havent posted in here since.... I think 2010 :| Sadly I am in absolutely terrible shape now. I've went from powerlifting, to streamlining my figure/toning up and now back at factory settings after my body collapsed due to a slight lump in my head :/

    Only just started back at the gym this week and slightly off putting that I can't lift nearby as much as I used to; laughable in comparison :/

    Finding it hard to get inspired to get back into the old routine. Maybe time to use here to inspire me to return to form!

    I'm now attempting some old-school dieting. I got a copy of The Scarsdale Medical Diet and am on a slightly modified version. If I forget my blood pressure/anti-anxiety medication, I feel my heart racing and my chest burning. I'm way too heavy and I can't ignore what's happened physically. I'm biking again.
    ETA: I've lost seven pounds in under a week and my chest is feeling better.
