It's always nice to know the numbers! Sounds like a very reasonable and attainable goal!

I got measured at the dr's office at five feet 5.5 inches recently!!!

What kind of calipers did you get? They range in price from $6 to $200+ based on a quick internet search. I'm not about to run out and get a DEXA scan but I might be interested in trying calipers.

As the elected official prez of the 5'6" club I say: calipers, caterpillars, and champagne for all!!!!

I have 2 calipers (and 2 scales, safer that way lol). Very easy to use. Even online calculators to input that'll do the math for you AND YouTube vids on how to measure. Personally I like the 7 site measurements best, I think they're the most accurate.
