I am assuming you are in the UK. Try having such a body shape in Asia, I am obese here! :lol:

Ah I know, mate, it's ridiculous. Clinically, I'm 'obese', to look at me, I'm broad shouldered but fairly lean...does not compute, like what you say about your own categorization by Asian social/clinical standards. It makes you wonder if we, as a species, will ever find it in ourselves to NOT be consumed by petty differences and be adversely tilted by bureaucratic/popular culture influences.

Well, what d'ya know, I'm an Optimistic Cynic, haha.

Speaking of height though, holy pavlova, I saw a Pakistani chap today who was at least 6 feet 10inches (just over 202cm or thereabouts - he's the new owner of the Premier convenience store near my house, first time I noticed him was today when his shadow eclipsed every beam of light in my vicinity. :lol: Nice guy though, hands like shovels.

When I was 15, I was about 5'8-5'9 and then only grew 2 inches through the end of my senior year. I was perfectly fine being 5'11 at 17 and then ended up being gifted an additional 2 inches. 5'11 isn't bad, nor is 5'10.


I never grew a damn inch in the four years since this. Hahahah. Maybe one? Ugh. What happened to my genes.

I'm 5'10", which for non-Americans, converts to 177.8 centimeters.

189 cm is very tall for a woman, KittyCathy! 6'2" ladies aren't too common around here. At least you can reach tall things easily. My fiancee always makes me come reach for tall stuff.

When I was a child, I wanted to be 5'11. Like, if you ask children what they want to be when they grow up, they answer things like president, astronaut, etc., my answer was "5'11."

I'm 5'5, but my hands and feet are the size of a woman who is 5'11.

Oh well.
