How Tall Are You?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Well, I think the photographer felt bad sticking me on the end because I was so much shorter than everyone else. Didn't want it to look like he was pointing that out or something maybe?

It seems you're either too tall or too short, I'm in the shorties, I once said at the ER that I was 5ft and the guy laughed at me, said i wasn't even 4"10 which is actually how tall I am so he was right :D I dont mind being short but there's times where I wish I had a few more inches on me, especially when buying dresses or pants, its hard to find size 1 or now 0 pants [now that i'm at my lowest weight of 80lbs]

Is that okay? I mean, I'm 5'0" and I know I don't have a small frame by any means and a lot of people do, but my ideal weight seems to be around 130 lbs. I don't mean to be insensitive, but when I read that I wondered if you're having a hard time gaining weight or if you're just that petite.

Hay everyone

:D

I had to weigh in on this one. I am 5'. I was glad to see that others are my weight. I am just hitting the 80 pound mark. That is a gain of 7 pounds in the year I have been gluten free. I wear a size 2 that is starting to get tight. One grandmother was under 5' the other was over. See what genes I got.

Well I've always had a small frame, but I used to weigh 100Lbs about a year and a half ago, then I started having a lot of stomach problems, after a while it turned into nausea and after a few more months i was throwing up every day from everything I ate and I couldn't figure it out until looking for information on ulcers I read a little link on the side of the page that said 'A flour problem?' and voila from there on I figured it out on my own that I had celiac, tested through Enterolab and it came back positive, but by that time I had already lost 10lbs, after that i couldn't put these 10lbs back on and that's when i started with other health problems [diabetes and something on my rib that i still cant figure out] so for a while i wasnt eating very well, even for a few weeks i had to be on a liquid diet and i lost another 15lbs, now im slowly working my way back towards 80lbs actually, last time I was at the doctors he said i weighed 76. So yep its just a matter of not being able to put the weight back on, i feel so underweight though, i'm all bones and with the diet its even harder to find the right foods.

5'2" -- and married to someone a full foot taller. His whole family is tall, which made for some strange wedding pictures. It took him years to realize why I rarely clean the top of the refrigerator. If he bothers him, I say, he can clean it. I don't see it :P

I guess it could be worse. My high school debate partner was 6'9"

I'm 5'8" and have been about this height since I was 9-10 yrs old. I wasn't diagnosed until I was 24, although I was seeing a pediatric gastrointestinal doctor when I was 9 already! He just tested me for everything under the sun except food allergies/intolerances! I also drank coffee as a kid....so I guess either it didn't stunt my growth, or, I would've been super tall!

I'm 5'0. I work as a teaching assistant for 4th thru 6th graders and they are always getting a kick out of the fact that they're taller than me. B)

I'm 5'4" on a good day. My mom is 5'0 1/2" and my sister is 4'11 1/2", so celiac may not be the culprit in my lack of height. And while I am currently about 150 lbs., it took me years to gain that weight. And like Susan, I was also reintroduced to gluten after diagnosis and undergoing the "banana diet" for a while.
