6'2"  It's funny, we have the metric system here and I can't honestly remember my height in centimeters, I just remember being really happy when I was younger, breaking the 6 foot mark because that seemed to be the magic number when you play basketball.

About 6' and 300+ pounds. I find that the height (which is not excessively tall) has less bearing than being a big guy. The old "don't hit me" joke, or some variation, tends to come up. I'm about the most quiet, gentle guy you'll ever meet.

On the other hand, I have known a few little guys who made up for it by being the most aggressive, outgoing SOBs around when it came to business, partying or getting in a scrap. Little guys with huge personalities. Never knew one who didn't have lots of friends and just about as many enemies.

5'8" and 205 lbs., but people tend to guess about 180 to 190 and think I'm shorter than I am. I have the bad luck to wind up in groups of tall people all through life. And yes, I think height helps socially. If I thought we actually came back through reincarnation I'd like to be tall (and with a lean frame for good measure) just to see the difference in the way people act, also I've had a few women rule me out due to height. Payback.

I've lost about 30 lbs over the past two years, with effort and exercise. Off my routine right now, still losing weight, muscle mass and keeping to portion control looks like. It wasn't hard to add muscle the last time I started back after I backed off the free weights for a while. I can't be "skinny" and be healthy, my frame isn't built for it. I plan to try more aerobic exercise next (biking, swimming, light weights/lots of reps, etc.) to see how much of an effect I can have that way.

I'm 5'8" about 160-170, I believe.

I was at Sears today buying some dress/work pants, and the shortest inseam I could find was 29", which was a tad too long.  But looking at their sizing chart, the only 28" inseam they offered was for 48-50" pants!  Who do they think shops at Sears?  Tall people and the portly?

Just walking around, I've always thought that 5'7"-5'9" was the average height for American males (Wikipedia says 5'10"), so why don't they sell pants that fit that size?

Of course not.  That's the Wal-Mart demographic.

Well I'm glad someone around here is shorter than me at least and it sure hasn't hurt you any RC from the looks of things.
