Last nurse that checked me I'm 5'5'' but one before that like months 5'6'' and considering the amounts of time I have had to have surgery and such I have to get measured a lot!! Of course my height or the varying of it never concerned them, my high blood pressure being in pain and all, did, every time!! "Go have a cup of tea then come back" as if that would change anything!!

Old ladies with humps, it is a bit too common with much older Koreans, it often gets chalked up to a calcium deficiency (osteoperosis).

6 feet/183 cm basically. A little sad because my dad was like 6'4" but my mother was very short and dragged me down with her a bit.
I have always felt kind of lanky myself, although I am not actually all that, um, light, at nearly 90 kg.
