    I'm 6' too, and pretty skinny. I used to want to be bulkier, but now I'm glad I'm not.

    I finally gained some weight, 20 pounds to be exact. Most of it is muscle, I'm still about 10 pounds under the "average weight". I'm 149-150, 160 is supposidlt normal for my height. The rule of thumb goes 100 pounds for 5 foot, 5 pounds for every inch past that.

    I'm 6'2". It's a good height (tall but not "wow, you're tall!"), although it can be a little tough to find shirts that are long enough in the sleeves.

    I'm dot on 6'00". Hopefully I'll grow another inch or two and then stop. But I'm 17 so I don't see that happening.

    I want to bullk up from around 155lbs to around 170lbs, maybe a bit more.

    I'm 6'3" and yes, I kept growing after 18. Probably didn't really stop until about 24 or 25. I know my inseam got longer after college, but didn't really pick up any appreciable weight until my early to mid-30's.

    6'1" at 17, and I think I'm pretty much finished growing. Maybe another inch. I'm happy, though.

    I'm 5'11". I stopped growing at 14 and am now, at age 38, on the downward slope.

    I am somewhere between 5'10 and 5'11. All that matters is that I am taller than my dad.

    I'm shorter than my father. He's 6', my mother is 5'7".

    How the hell am I still 5'10"? This pisses me off.

    At my peak I was 6' 6-1/2". Then I started shrinking. Yoga has restored about an inch. [​IMG]

    I'm 6'4". I started high school as one of the shorter kids in school and I left as the tallest Between the ages of 15 and 17 I grew a total of 9". My body never really filled out until I was in my mid twenties. No matter how much I worked out I couldn't bulk up. Unfortunately, now that I am in my mid-thirties I am still filling out, just not in the ways I'd like.

    As for the perfect height, Since my NBA career never panned out I actually wish I was an inch or 2 shorter. As it is now, it is difficult to find shirts that fit, rides on airplanes are usually uncomfortable and so on.

    I am 5' 10". I guess rather than be taller, I'd like to have a longer inseam. I have a pretty long torso, and to look at my legs you couldn't guess that my legs aren't proportionally long.
