Anyone surprised in how they turned out physically from being a little kid to high school?

I ask this because I know that I am. My mother is 5'2" and my biological father was 5'4" yet, I'm head and shoulders over them both. Even though I went into high school under 5'0". I'm pretty lean, unlike my brothers or sisters and my voice kinda makes me sound like I still have to go through puberty but that's okay. All in all, I'm pretty pleased. How about you?

  • I am VERY surprised (and happy) with how i turned out! When i was in middle school i was the shortest in my class (4'9 ), i was skinny as hell (76 lbs)! People would always pick on me for being like that, they would call me 'biggy' 'shortie' and stuff like that.

    A year before finishing middle school, i suddenly grown and i was even taller than some of the guys in my class, i was 5'6 (that's my height now too). The bad thing is that i was still super skinny (95 lbs), and of course everyone called me a "stick", "skeleton" and so on.

    I was the 'ugly friend' ALL the time. No one payed attention to me unless they wanted to say bad words to me. When i would hang out with my girl friends, the guys who would try to seduce them would say stuff like "why are you even here, no one wants you here!" "go eat or something, look at you, you look awful" .

    In high school there was a girl who would always look pitifully at me and say stuff like "oh, i would never want to look like you! you look horribly skinny". Now that same girl, is very overweight, so yeah, i guess the karma took care of her!

    When i started going to university (at age of 20), i decided to be more positive and happy overall, i changed my hair color (now it's dark blonde), i have no more pimples, and now i wear tight clothes (i weight 110 lbs). It's true that i have small boobs (i don't mind), but i have a pear body shape, so i have a flat stomach and a nice ass with long legs haha~

    Now i kid you not, the exact same guys that in the past told me stuff like "why are you even here and so on", complimented me on my looks~

    I could say that i was a late bloomer :> ~ It's quite ironic how much we change during such a small amount of time! I hope i haven't bored you that much with my essay :D

    • Heck no you didn't bore me. That was an excellent read. Thenk you so much for sharing. I know EXACTLY how you feel and I hope...well I was Gunna say that I hope you do not take those guys seriously when they give you the compliments but sometimes people change, so...maybe you do. That's on you. I hope that you realized how special and unique you were before and that even if it was only one or two that others did as well. You had one heck of a growth spurt. Haha Not bad at all.
      I'm happy also that you are pleased with your body. I hear so many girls talk about small boobs as if that's a bad thing. Personally I like them smaller so from a guy's perspective, you're fine. I also think that you now having a nice butt certainly does not hurt the view. :P
      You seem to have just the right amount of confidence in yourself, which is so cool. So these days are definitely better for you huh? P.S - I bet even back then you were not ugly, not in the least.

    • Well if you were here, I would most definitely and happily take a hug or two from you. (Those are actually my favorites). Thenk you for your compliments too! You bore your soul in your explanation and I just wanted to show you how much I appreciated it. (: I had a pretty okay growth spurt. Haha I went into hs under 5'0" and have grown a good few inches since then. Although I'm not as tall as most girls would want me to be. :P I had to learn within myself that I'm made perfectly and my job is to maintain what I already have, not whine about what I don't; you know? You and your boobs. Hehe I bet they're not even that small. Haha Reguardless the discipline that you seem to have regarding your body leads me to believe that it is probably just as astounding as the rest of you. It would be a privaledge to be in your presence. ^_^ Your attitude is amazing. Even if we have down days, you still persevere. THAT is awesome. Do you feel you've helped a lot of people? I imagine you do.

    • Haha~ that's nice of you :D ~ to be honest~ handshakes are my favorite for some weird reasons~ Oh trust me~ height is not everything~ i see plenty of guys complaining about height~ to be honest, there are many other stuff a LOT more important than that! Now that i think about it, there was this tall guy who said that he really liked me, unfortunately i didn't liked him back, so i had to politely refuse him. In that certain time i've been crushing on a dude a bit shorter than me~ so yeah~ trust me~ i'm not joking when i say that! I like your thoughts~ Everyone should try to cherish their body and of course, if there are small changes that they can make about it, then great~ but if not, then they should learn to accept it! Thanks a lot! Your attitude seems great too! I don't think i would get bored talking to u if u would meed u! And yeah, I like to believe that i did helped some people! Thanks for MH and for your kind words! :D

  • i've always had this body shape. i stopped growing at age 14, height and weight. i can still wear the skintight non-stretch pants i wore at that age. apparently my looks haven't really changed since then because people i haven't seen in 10-15 years are able to recognize me easily and spot me in a crowd. i didn't know who they were.

    • I mean as long as you are healthy then this sounds like a good thing right? You have the fountain of youth in you. Hehe

    • i'm not sure because i can't lose or gain weight no matter how i change my diet. i have limitations when it comes to excercise due to heart issues. i would like to lose weight.

    • Hmm...have you explored any options on lbs to do that?

  • not really tbh. iv never been fat, but at one stage i was overweight. now I'm back to the same weight that i was in the 9th grade. i stopped growing AGES ago lol, but the main thing i would say that did surprise me was when the booty and hips just came out of nowhere haha. it really sparked up some conversation between girls i knew as well:P till now i get called the egyptian Kim K haha, so embarrassing cuz my butt and hips r nowhere near the size of hers, but ahwelll:P

  • Yep. I was skinny as a kid. I don't mean lean, I mean looked-like-I-was-malnuritioned kinda skinny. I thought I'd be flat as a board for the rest of my life. Then when I was about 15-16, boobs and curves came in and it was like POW. lol

    • Our duties were just to model the clothes. It took forever to receive my outfit and check in, things were sort of chaotic. πŸ˜’ Yes, its commercial acting and that seems to be more lucrative. I'm pretty excited about the new path.😏

    • Ah, so it was a bit unorganized. I get it now. Well yeah, on to bigger and better things. What would you most like to get?

  • Yeah. In kindergarten, I used to be either the tallest, or the second tallest and biggest girl in class. If some boy bullied a classmate, they usually ran to me and I would challenge this boy lol I was the brute of the class! During puberty, my growth became stunted. Now I'm only 160 cm, pretty average, maybe even slightly on the short side for a girl. I'm even shorter than some teenage girls..

      Well don't give me any academic praise yet, that was a challenge fit for a novice like me. :P

  • Oh yeah... Super surprised. I was a bean pole as a child, and in high school I filled out and ended up with some big old hips on my little frame. It was super weird because my mom always had narrow hips even though she has always been overweight. It's okay I guess.. Having my weight go to my butt and thighs first is better than gaining in my stomach I suppose.

    • Haha XD True. Nice butt and thighs, definitely HUGE attributes and it looks like you are pretty proportionate to me which is even sexier. I know that you and especially your bf are pleased. :P Sometimes things like hips and such skip a gen or two. Looks like it came back in time for you. I'm glad that you are happy with it.^_^

  • Not really. I am so average in height/weight and my face hasn't changed much at all, to me at least. I sounded like Minnie Mouse for the longest time, super high pitched squeaky voice, luckily that changed cause that could have been annoying, I sound pretty normal now.

    I really think I just turned out really average and it doesn't really surprise me at all.

  • I grew to the necessary 5 ft 11 in and packed on a few extra pounds so my bullies of elementary school/middle school now found me physically intimidating. Problem was that I found out that I pack on extra weight a little too easily and it's slightly difficult to shed off, oh well, I like how I turned out

    • Haha Uh oh. Well all in all you seem happy. That's what matters most. Now to shed those stubborn pounds. XD

    • Indeed good sir indeed

  • Yes, I'm so very happy. Not that height REALLY matters, but my mom is barely 5'2" and my dad is 5'7", so growing to be 6' and stockier was a very pleasant surprise, especially since I was a short super skinny little kid.

    I still joke to this day with my mom that I'm a milkman baby. Ha!

    • Haha The Milkman's baby. I'm glad you're happy with it though. I've never been one for height but having most of the features of a tall person makes up for the "lack" of height. You better be nice to us shorties! Ha

  • Well I was always among the tallest kids in class, I'm 6'2 now. But I did think I would take on my dad's lean structure, he's 6 feet and only 150 at most. Turns out I took on my mom's size, she like 5'10 and I'm guessing like 170. So I am surprised I'm like 190 with a good build, thought I'd be a stick forever lol.

  • Yeah, I used to be a stick. I'm still a small built type of guy, but grew into my own much more. I seemed to grow a good bit of natural muscle and with my already low body fat, it showed up on its own without me having to exercise or diet.

    I go to the gym regularly and diet now, and have only gotten better from my pre-workout days.
