Ha! I was thinking about this the other day. At my current rate of shrinkage I'll probably be around 3 ft tall by the time I reach 60

Bahahaha! Funny replies in here! I'm 58 and lost a bit in height myself. The girls are not perky like they used to be either. My hair is long like yours, but I color it. Oh the things we go through as we age.

I hated hanging over most men that I met. I actually married a man 5'10" and with even small heels he felt short to me; I had to divorce him.

That's funny!



I like tall, tall men-just the way I am. I just don't feel as feminine when I am taller than the man. Maybe my generation-but I hate being so tall-and all my friend are around average height of 5'4-5'6" and I have always stuck out-and I hate it.

Is that a generational thing? It's also interesting to hear being taller than a guy makes you feel less feminine - I can relate to that and don't think I've ever gone out with a guy that was shorter than me? Back when I was 5'7"-ish, my former hubby was 6'3" but I bet he's shorter than that now even though I'm a month shy of being four years older than he is. Maybe I'll swing by his place tomorrow and measure him? (how tall he is, I mean)

Ugh! Not only am I over an inch shorter, I also seem to be a bit rounder as well?

Thanks for all the comments!

I'm 41 (42 next month) and I've lost 1/2", not really a big deal, I've always been short. I'm now 5' 1/2" instead of 5'1". Oh well, I guess some of us just take less time to reach perfection. Or as my teenagers say "careful for the short ones, they're closer to hell so they are meaner"

I'm hitting the big 5-Oh in six months and have been perimenopausal for about 2 years now, but I'm getting closer to hitting menopause, all the signs are there.

I was always 5'9" but hubby commented to me last year when he was giving me a hug and a smooch in the kitchen that I seemed like I was shorter, so we measured me...

And sure as tootin' I'm closer to 5'8 1/2" now.

6'4" at 18 to 6 foot at 35 lol.

Thanks, ankylosing spondylitis and collapsed discs. And bad knees. And declining posture. And... well, you get it. :p

I did gain half an inch back after I lost a ton of weight a few years ago, though! Lol

Peace.
