I was seriously overweight a year b4 weighing 198 pounds but now i lost all extra fat and became lean again Smile Right now my weight is 134 pounds, height is 5"9.

But going thru dieting brought energy level so down, i really want to feel alive again.

Hi John,
Bone density & bone size are 2 different things. Lifting weights will increase bone density, not really increase bone size much. If you are lifting for shape then small bones have a real advantage as growing a little bit of muscle will look especially impressive with small joints (for an extreme example look at Frank Zane ( Clik here to see him ) or in more modern times Flex Wheeler ( Click here to see him )
134 pounds is quite small if you are lifting at 5ft 9 inches in height - that's 69 inches or 175.26 cm - Your metabolism is probably pretty slow right now if you've been dieting for a while. When you diet long term I usually suggest refeed days to boost the metabolism. I'd also aim at adding some more muscle as the more muscle you have the more calories you burn, so the more you can eat & the more energy you will feel you've got.
We'd have to see your diet & training to get a real idea of where you should go from here. If you can give us some details I'm sure we could offer you some ideas.
Welcome to the messageboard by the way!
