Good pulling. Almost had it.

You need to stick your chest out before you pull. You are hanging out over the nar and not very upright. This is costing you leverage.

Just more fuel to the fire.

Definitely noticed that. I also ask JB for his opinions and will be working towards getting my form fixed up. Very glad that deadlifting is possible for me.

Will be changing my training style once again on saturday. I'm going back to a more PHAT styled program.

Gaining weight up to 200 was great looking at the scale, but what I've been eating and how I look in the mirror is not really worth it at this point. 5' 5" 200lbs at my current body fat is not making me happy even with my strength gains. I'm planning to cut from around 195-200 to ~170ish. Will still be trying to increase strength.
