    I am 4'9'' and even for Asian standard, I am petite. I used to get bothered by it and I thought, life might have been easier if I were of average height. But well, I did not let it stop me and here I am in Europe now, risking being looked at as even "tinier" than I was considered...

    I am a small woman. I am 5'2 120. (Got a few curves in there) I have small feet, can only wear kids watches, and my ring size is a 5. I am strong for my size tho. I do not let my womanhood nor my size slow me down. Giggling. It just makes me more agile. :)

    Being petite is kind of a blessing and a curse. At 5'1", I am tiny. However...I get away with so many things due to looking innocent and cute. It also helps looking like you are high school at times and have huge eyes and a high pitched voice at times (my voice fluctuates a...

    Is Nice Sometimes, Other Times Is Not.

    Disadvantages of being 4ft and 11.5 inches tall: Having to climb onto the counter to reach a bowl for my morning oatmeal. Having others point out your height/weight all the time. Being called "cute" and "little" is nice sometime but I'd like to look my age. Basically just not...

    I am 4'10 and 97 pounds.

    My doctor showed me a chart of my growth. When I turned 11, it flattened out.  I have been this height and this weight for five years, and if I grow, then consider it a miracle.But really, I'm content being short. :)
