    Tell me how weightlifting improved your life

    I'm about eight months in and loving the iron. I envy the guys at my gym who already look huge. It keeps me fighting.

    If you've got a moment, tell me how weightlifting's made your life better.
    What gains have you made outside the gym - do people treat you differently? got any good stories?

    The important stuff: Stronger. Much better shape than the average 60-year-old guy. Improved mood and emotions.

    The fun stuff: In the last few years, I’ve gotten physical flirting from two women in person, exchanged pics and messages with three women who pursued me online.

    At age 61, I've exceeded all my prior PRs. Not “over the hill” yet. :)

    It is not the weightlifting itself that changed or improve my life. It's the discipline, focus, flow, and psychological well-being.

    Saved my life. A couple of years back I was diagnosed with cancer, after starting chemo and radiation I lost the ability to swallow for about 8 months. Couldn't even drink water. Had lots of complications, multiple hospitalizations. Of course I lost all my gains and then some, had to start back again from less than scratch.

    BUT, if I hadn't been in shape to begin with, if I hadn't had a strong constitution and good foundation from lifting, I doubt that I would have survived those complications. Had there been no gains to lose, I would have lost even more, and I doubt that I would have made it through the worst of it.

    So yeah, I'm a big fan of lifting.
    I'm out, standing in my field.

    64 and still a newbie.

    Well first of all it helped me with my spine. I was slouching, I think for 5 or 6 years, but after a half year in gym my spine got better, after another half a year it got even more better. Nowadays I'm still training, but now I'm just keeping the result that I've achived.

    It’s going to be hard, but hard does not mean impossible.
