None so far. I have gained weight, so feel like an overstuffed sausage. The extra weight / with tight skin has eliminated wrinkles and kept me from shrinking. I worry if I gain anymore weight, I will actually get taller.

I am currently age 66. For most of my life I was 5'1 1/2 " I was hanging on to that last inch until last year, when I suddenly became 5'1" flat. Hope I don't lose anymore, or I may go out like a light.

My last physical I went from 5'3" to 5'2" - I said: "I'm shrinking!" in the wicked witch of the west voice.

At one of my houses there was an old metal clothes line and I would grap onto it and just hang - I could feel everything stretching and straitening out. Felt great. I need a clothes line.

2 inches and I hate it too, Minverva! I hate it! I've lost 2 inches in the last decade or so.

down an inch.

I attribute it to packing around MONSTER kids (11# birth weight) on my shoulders while hiking / trekking.

but likely 'gravity'

I am at me High School weight, but it's the W-I-D-T-H that is evasive.

We were at a concert last weekend and I felt like telling the lead singer.. "I used to have a 23" waist like you have NOW..." That would have been SHOCKING to the singer, so I avoided mentioning it.

Nothing yet, but I'm sure that won't last.
