    I need to grow taller!

    I'm 153cm. Help.

    So what should I do?
    My parents are super short. Mum: 148cm | Dad: 165cm
    I get around 9-11 hours of sleep everyday (sleep 8/9:30pm wake up 5:45 or 7 am) and run for 2 hours each day + swimming once a week for an hour. Started this a while ago but not too long ago, lost weight but didn't grow much taller. Approx. gained 2cm. I also drown myself in dairy it gives me pimples but whatever. Apparently my expected adult height was 150cm lol

    I'm fifteen (year 10) weight 50kg.

    Leg lengthening is a possibility, you can get your legs broken to add a few extra centimetres.

    Also you don't "need" to be taller. You "want" to be taller.

    No one is "perfect" and being short has advantages such if your feet are small enough you can buy kids shoes, that are often $60 cheaper for the same kind.

    I've heard about those leg bengethning surgeries, you wont be able to walk for a year and it's really common and cheap in China.

    My feet are way to small for even adult shoes regardless sometimes I find sizes that fit or else I buy kids sizes most the time.

    But I wanna be tall nearly like everyone's taller than me. Oh well, I'll continue trying see how tall I can get.

    Re: I need to grow taller!

    @OP Watch some videos online about anterior/posterior pelvic tilt. If you have either problem and you overcome it then you will look taller as your posture will be better and you'll be more upright. Posture is so important and can make you look so much taller.
