    Somehow, at age 27, I have gone from being 5ft4 to 5ft5:confused: I have no idea how, but I was measured twice in the last week, once at drs and once at the gym (both without shoes) and it is definately so. Which means, I am now only three and a half pounds off being a healthy weight! So on current rates, I should be healthy in about 8 weeks time:rolleyes:

    Could it be the fact you have lost weight and its no longer compressing your spine?

    Have you been playing on the rack......lol. How strange.
    I was wondering if maybe without all my weight and gravity pushing me down that when I lose all my excess weight I may grow too......!

    I have no idea why or how it has happened, and it must have been very gradual, but I am not complaining!

    Ironically, my trousers are all now too long as they are hanging differently now I have lost a bit of weight!!!

    I grew after my first baby, started out at 5ft 2inches and after 5ft 3 (well almost), if i could just grow another 3 inches i would be so slim:D but sadly i dont think it will happen now, shame.

    medically ,two reasons,one less spine compression due to weight loss and you are always taller in the morning,again spine compression . depends when you are measured,i can be nearly an inch and a half smaller at night
