Its not worth it dude, 6'1 is tall enough.

I'm roughly 5'3" and more than a little schlumpy. You're a six foot body builder, and here you go with the "maybe if you were in my body you'd understand my shortness pain" routine. Do you have any idea how much more frail your leg bones will be, by the time you're done with the years of treatments to get taller? Sure, you'd be taller, but you can pretty much kiss your body building goodbye. I sure hope you like muscle atrophy, because all that bed rest will set you far back, just for starters.

Maybe if you guys were in my body, then you'd understand the repercussions I face everyday. Having low self confidence cause I'm never good enough. I'm a bit fat right now in the pic above, and I'm short to put it to perspective. I mean, wtf. Why couldn't I have just been blessed as a giant like my boy at 6'8.


You do realize taller people die earlier, right?

http://www.menshealth.com/health/do-tall-guys-die-younger

"A 1992 study of nearly 1,700 dead guys found that, on average, men shorter than 5’9” hung around till the ripe old age of 71. Men taller than 6’4”, on the other hand, checked out around the age of 64."

Doesn't mean that it applies today, but I personally would rather be shorter if it means I live longer.

Besides, you look great, you're obviously working out and staying healthy, just because you're not 6'8 doesn't mean you shouldn't have confidence in yourself.

If you think about it, you could have been cursed in size in er, other regions, and being a little short in the land of giants doesn't sound so bad compared to that, right?

Stop worrying about things about your body that you can't change. Just work on improving the things that you can change.

If anything, I'd prefer to be this tall with some limited health concerns

than be the same height as most women nowadays. It's kinda pitiful considering how a lot of women are around 5'8-5'11. With heals, they're standing at 6'2-6'3


Do you live outside the Wall or something? Where is this Land of Giants you speak of?


My college campus is relatively big. University of Texas in Austin. Like bro, 6'2-6'3 is like the average height here.


Huh, I guess everything is bigger in Texas.

I wish I had half your confidence. You're only 5'3 as a guy and you don't want to do any type of surgeries to be taller? Tell me your secret to confidence, brah?

Again, speaking as a 6'0" "shorty", it's already having a healthy self-respect for who you are, across all categories.
That's probably why I don't lift, bro, but also why I don't pursue some need that I "have" to.

(And the fact that you're genuinely asking us, means you may get better answers asking someone else.)

im not sure its confidence as a strong dislike for unnecessary medical practices that target those with insecurities such as height, gender, etc i usually consider to be nothing more then a form of con artistry formulated by some bad elements in the medical community to take advantage of people they may make the procedures to be relatively harmless but often it seems if you dig a bit you can find that the effects permanent and often quite severe. and as someone who has 21 years of dealing with legitimate medical issues the idea of people pretending to be doctors and targeting people with insecurities saying i can add or remove something to or from yet just happen often skim over the bad effects it can have the person which would likely be permanent disgusts me like almost nothing else. for example i have a feeling making someone taller would strain the body the joints muscle as well as the circulatory system quite a bit.

Isn't it women who have long legs in proportion to their bodies?

An Attack on Titan sized wall would be awesome. Think of the tourist money it would generate.
