Hi Everyone!

Today my sons were measuring themselves and they measured me, too. I WAS 5'6" several years ago. I am NOW 5' 4 1/2" !!! Yikes! I'm shrinking!!!! :?: You don't suppose that I have lost an inch and a half of fat from the soles of my feet, do ya? :dizzy:

whoa!!! unless you have osteoporosis, that's odd! Even for peopel with osteoporosis, shrinking doesn't occur that quickly...

I think we shrink as we get older. But I don't know about how fast it goes. I used to be 5' 6" when I was in my 20s. The next time I paid attention to my height, I was in my mid 30s. The doc said 5' 4". I simply thought he was wrong and kept telling people I was 5' 6"...until the next doc said I was 5' 4". :(
