Rob, do you think that your height workout video would help my grandmother she has been told she is susceptible to osteoporosis? She is late 60s and was according to her 5 ft 6 in her youth I measured her a few months ago around 5 ft 5.

I think we are all obsessed with height on this website! It's always on my mind about how tall other people are in the supermarket, street, etc.

Hey Rob I was really surprised when I read from you that woman who was outside with you was your sister. I thought it was a neighbor of you. Wasn't that the same person from the height challenge?
[Editor Rob: yes she appeared in a height challenge, when I had her in heels.]

Hi Rob, I'm 176.5 cm in the morning, but 175.2cm in the evening, could I say that I'm 176cm? Would it be to lie?
[Editor Rob: I'd simply stick to saying 5ft 9...but since you have only about half inch or so shrinkage, saying 176 wouldn't be as bad as if you were 176.5 and shrank to 174...you still hold 175 range for most of the day.]

Hey Rob I need some help. There is a boy that I like and I would like to know his height. I am 5'9.5 to 5'10 on a good day (you know what I mean). The shoes I was wearing today gave me about an inch and he was wearing sneakers. Also in this photo I was slouching a little bit.

[Editor Rob: I'd have thought he could be near six foot there, accounting for what you said. ]

Hi Rob! Just a little question for you: I wake up at exactly 188 cm and my lowest after a long day of standing and working out is 186 cm. What height should I claim? Can I claim 187 cm or would that be considered a lie since I probably drop below that mark at the end of the day? And in America should I claim 6'2 or 6'1? Thanks for the answer, love your site! ;)
[Editor Rob: 187 is ok to claim.

At worst you drop 1cm under...a lot different than if you rounded up to 188 or even claimed 189.]

About the doorways-- The doors of minimarts and drug stores in my area of New York have foot markings on the swinging edge and they seem to be shifted up so they understate my height.

Yeah I've strangely became obsessed with height over the past few years, I used to not care as much and just noticed people who where drastically taller then me, but now I'm always comparing my heights with others when I'm walking around. My morning height is a bit over 5'11" and go down to 5'10.5" by night time, but I just say I'm 5'11 because I easily clear that am closer to 6'0 in shoes. It's not a bad height but I've always wanted to be 6'1-6'2. Oh well I've been done growing since like 17-18 as I'm 20 now.

How can i become taller @rob ? I'm obsessed although i dont show it.
[Editor Rob: it is the holy grail - a program that could add an inch to anybody's height...it doesn't exist yet.]

@Rob I need your help, please. There's a thing that i don't understand and that really starts to annoys me .... Do you remember when i asked what "high hip bones" really means? I had searched a little bit on internet but i didn't found(...an english answer that i could understand;) and then i remembered that i already had read the "answer" on site about leg to upper body ratio (i even had let a comment about that!(really red fish memory;)) girls said despite her long outseam her legs aren't really long its just that they've high hip bones. That means that there's too much cm between inseam and the top of the hip, right? Click Here (like her. She has a pretty long torso,no?) I searched again for be sure but i've just found a site where the girls say that they've high hip bones because they have a short torso and that their high hip bones give to her really long legs, so i'm a little bit lost... Too much cm or just a high...pelvis (that's the right term?) because long legs and short torso? (like this girl in the middle Click Here ) Both definitions are correct? Really sorry to bother you that... maybe i've already read the answer somewhere but despite what connor said my english is bad and i surely didn't understand or misunderstood... Thank you a lot:)
[Editor Rob: sorry, I'm confused over the question again.]

@Rob Really funny your video; Sookie is very cute:) I remember when i discovered that i was 1m64 instead of 1m63, i became totally obsessed, i verified 50 times per day for see if it wasn't a measure error and if i didn't drop under that new height; it lasted few weeks.... i also became obsessed by gaining another cm, i wanted to do 1 hour of stretching by day, fortunately for me (i'm a lazy person;)) this obsession didn't last. Just by curiosity, is there a chance that one day there will be a sort of "obsessed with weight" page?
[Editor Rob: I don't have as much interest in weight as height. It is a far trickier topic to guess than height!]
