Hello Lotters! I just stand 5'1 and I am not satisfied with it. Although, I know that Filipinos are really short, still I wanted to be taller. Hehehehe.. If I am given a chance to choose to be how tall I would stand, I think, to stand 5'8 would be great for me. What about you? Would you wish you were taller?

I AM 5'8", and it's not much better. Getting taller is a lot like getting fatter, in that you end up with more useless body to take care of. Oh sure, you can reach stuff on upper shelves and such; but that was a lot funner for your brain when you had to figure out 'how to get up there.'

Actually I'm satisfied with the height that I have. God gave to me it and I fell satisfied. Further the height of a person is not only that is worth. There are other qualities that are more valuable like as the virtues and to have a great soul.

I wish I was taller, but I'm not all sad with my height. At least, I'm not too short, as was expected, because my mom is really short and my dad is not that tall. But, I would not complain if I have win 5cm more.

I have never thought about that. I am only 5'4" and I don't really care. I am what I am and nothing can change that. Work with what you have. Being tall could have it's draw backs also. Remember, good things come in small packages.

I'm 5'3" and I still consider myself short. I would be ok with 5'6" or 5'8"! I want to have longer legs as I find them very sexy!

I am 5'10" and quite satisfied with it. I am quite tall and feel good when I see that I am taller than most guys around. I am always wanted to be tall since I was a kid and now I feel like I have accomplished my goal.

personally, i am contented with how i stand at 5'4". but sometimes, it's difficult to get a better job when you are smaller than this one. just like in the military, cadets should be 5'4" at least, at least here in PH.

Hi jdex! Most of the time I'm okay with my height. I stand 5'1 just like you but sometimes I feel 5'2. lol Most of my friends are smaller than me so I guess I'm okay with my height. But whenever I see tall girls that stands so nicely, I sometimes wish I was tall like them. ^^ But with my age I can't grow taller anymore. So I just make up for it by standing always with a straight body and chin up.

Hi jdez: I stand 175 cms and I usually feel satisfied with my height but sometimes when I am in front of a tall person, especially with people from other countries which are taller than the average of my country I wished to be taller. ALVARO

I am shorter than you - I'm almost 5 feet! Well, I'm Japanese-American . . . I have always been short - and I still am! I remember hating it as a child as I was always the shortest in class - and kids can be cruel in making fun of other children. But when I stopped growing in my teens - it was just reality that I wasn't going to get any taller - so I had to live with that - and there was no sense being sad about my height. My parents/family are short - so it was in the genes - nothing was going to make me taller. As an adult, I have been perfectly happy with my height! Guys seemed to like tiny gals (in my younger days) - so I enjoyed my shortness without having to deal with any guys shorter than me - ha ha! Clothing sales (including second hand stores) have lots of things my size - and I can make bigger stuff work - I like that!! Nope, I have no desire to be taller - I'm perfectly fine with my shortness - hee hee!

Am 6'3 tall and am happy with it, anyway its not a big deal, people are gifted with appropriate height according to their place and need, there is nothing wrong in it, anyway god has given us much more than height or weight in each of us, ofcourse being over weight is not an option, overweight we create for ourself coz of lot of eating and stuffs, thats not good for health anyway. am not wishing for anything, my body satisfy me lot at presently.

I am only 5 feet 1 inches tall as well. There may have been times when I wished that I was taller, but all in all I don't really mind being my height. There are some advantages, I can weave in and out of people easily because I am small. When I go to library sales, I can easily crawl under tables to see what is in the boxes below and nobody even knows I am down there. The only time when it is hard to be short is when I am at the grocery store and need something on a top shelf that is pushed back, then I have to ask someone to help me and pull it down.

When I was younger and joining fashion shows and all that I really never was satisfied with my height. I even got a book to get me taller, but it was tiring that I couldn't put a lot of heart to it. So I am still 5'6. I wanted to be something like 5'9. But now, I realize that it isn't that important. Now I am just happy with it and think that it is better not to be so tall. And that being too tall will be too much. I now find it beautiful when one is not so tall. Don't worry about it jdex_143. It is just height. It will only give you unreasonable worries if you think about it too much like I used to. Just be glad with your. At least you are cute.

I stand somewhere between 5'4" and 5'5". I told my girlfriend onetime that I was just a 5'7" body caught in this other one. Haha? If I only had more heighth would I just eat more or would my heighth make my weight just right? I don't know for sure but am hoping it is the latter.
