Did I Just Get Taller?

Hey guess what? I am 6' 4.5"! I know, that may not be a big deal to anyone older than 5 but it was news to me. For the past 10 years I have been quoting my height as being 6' 3" or at best between 6' 3" and 6' 4". Now it turns out I am at least whole half an inch taller than I thought. More like 1.5" because I had seriously settled on 6" 3' in recent years. Did I get taller? That seems unlikely. But I guess anything's possible.

  1. Did your posture improve?

  2. I was convinced for some reason that I weighed 175, even though I hadn't weighed myself in...well I can't remember last. Imagine my red face when after confidently telling the life insurance nurse that I weighed 175, I got on her scale and turned out to be 190!

    Joy covered for me and declared that muscle is heavier than fat. I still felt quite sheepish.

  3. (to Ariana) That's definitely a possibility. I have been much more conscious of my posture since I started driving.

  4. (to Chris) 190 ain't bad. I'm at 270. That was a little disheartening. That and my brother referring to me (though indirectly) as a "big burly guy." So much for my boyish figure.

  5. Well something is screwy. Last doctor appointment I was at scaled me at 6' 2". These doctors need to get their scale height measure things figured out.
