If I grow 2 cm I'll forget about LL
« on: October 01, 2020, 07:45:13 PM »

Srs. If I was 5'7" instead of 5'6 ¼" I would consider not getting LL and just live with it and wear extravagant footwear when I feel like it but not forever. Call me a madman but it's probably true. I'm going to take up a stretching, core strengthening, posture improving and glucosamine sulphate routine and if I get near 5'7" I'll be very happy as long as I improved my looks in other respects. This would solve my body dysmorphic issues - which is "feeling ugly".

But if I was to get it I wouldn't be happy at under 5'10", 5'9.5". I definitely don't want to be 5'9".

Anyone else have these ridiculous sounding autistic mental distinctions?

If you were 5.7 you would see that it is just a number and in reality those 2cm made almost no difference to how you see yourself and especially how the others see you...and you would still wanted to do LL to have a respectable height.

Yeah, probably.
But then again when I wore lifts to be 171-172 cm I didn't feel insecure anymore even when it's a small difference

How do you feel at 5'9.5"?

I'm pretty much the exact same height as OP (169.5cm first thing in the morning.) Not actually being 5'7" is very annoying as 5'7" - 5'8" can be considered "below average" sometimes while 5'6" is just straight up short.

With that said, from my personal experience I think if I was a legit 5'9" there's a good chance I wouldn't do LL. But at any height under 175 cm I would personally still consider it.

If I was 188 at night I also would forget about CLL and height problems :D
But what about stretching, I read some topic, where man age of 40 or so stretched his back from 172 to 176, and it wasnt temporary result, but permanent, the only negative this is some pain in spine, or lower back (he damaged something), he was doing exercises with inversion boots plus some weight

Lol if I was average height i.e: 5'10" I wouldn't even dream of wanting to become tall, let alone CLL. But unfortunately the cards I've been dealt with that's being 5'5" doesn't bode well with "society", it seems "society" wants to keep a man down simply for not being a certain arbitrary height that pleases our primitive dimorphic sensibilities. 5'7" in comparison seems tolerable but since I've not experienced being that height I cannot say with certainty that a hypothetical scenario would jive with my current predicament. In short I can assuredly say anything under 5'10" is a no go for me.

I thought you lived in a 'sh*thole country', surely the average could be below 5'10 there, no?

If I hadn’t suffered from hypogonadism and extreme weight loss in my late teens, thus possibly stunting my growth, I’d definitely have an easier time accepting my height. I’d still want to be taller (because, as already mentioned in other threads, I live in an area where the average male height is 184 cm), but I guess I wouldn’t actually be considering doing CLL.

No but I used to. Yes the average is below 5'10" from where I am form, but I was still considered short back there since it's a developing country there was a huge disparity between the old generation and the new so the country's average height belies the fact that my peer group's average was 5'9".
