The ebb and flow of body height.

I was talking to my cousin during the ride today and he said he shrank 2 inches?  He's my age and we have been nearly identical in size our whole life.  He's actually my white body double as we are built identically. Well apparently he's two inches shorter than me now.

Most people are taller in the morning than just before bedtime.  The average spine compresses a surprising amount during a day on your feet.  I was 6'1" when I was in the Navy and barely 5'11" now. but then that was 50 years ago.

I think the missing height is still there just in a different direction.

I have had nurses ask me how tall I used to be. I said I was all sizes up until I graduated high school. I've been 6'5" ever since. They are surprised I haven't shrunk some in 69 years.

You must still have good posture, Lj.

I think a lot of people get shorter because of posture changes. When growing up, there was some attention to walk and sit properly. I don't think that's true anymore. Certainly not among younger generations.
