When I was 2, I was 98/3'3". Now I'm only 180/6'0.

I got my body type from my father. He's 200/6'7" and heavy-built. Well, he looks like a fridge :lol:

5' 7" or 170 cm

on the short side for a guy, but I'm taller than both of my parents.

I don't know how tall I was then (except that I was always over the 100% tile in height), but they told my mother I'd definitely be 6'. I'm not. My brother, on the other hand, who was always short, is now pretty darn close and not done growing.

My father is 5' 10" and my mother is 5' 7", so I'm between them. Both of their families are pretty short though (5' 3" is the height of a lot of female relatives), barring a couple of outliers on my father's side.

I've heard that is true for males. For females, you double the height you were at 18 months.

I actually was 5'10 when I graduated high school in 2007, and I was 5'10 when I got my licenses now I am 6 feet, so between 2007 and now I grew 2 inches.

6'8, wow. That's pretty dang tall. I dated a guy once he was 6'6.

Do any of you like your height?

I am fine with it. I just wish more guys would accept me. But they always tell me well your too tall for me or something like that.

Sweetness.

My best friend is 4'10 I believe. People get really amused when I am 6' and she's 4'10 walking with each other. Than when you have her son with us, they always think she's the sister and he's my kid. I am like height shouldn't define that.

This also ignores the role of nutrition in producing a large body.
