I Am Petite

I'm a shortie, cant help it. 910 People

    I'm 5'2" and have come to accept my height.

    Earlier this week though, I was shopping for professional attire and couldn't find anything that fit. I'm a size zero and even places with those sizes didn't fit.... Pants, skirts and blazers were all too long. I was near tears. I've been working a new job and really want to...

    I'm very short.. my frnds call me teddy bear

    and other calls me shorty lol.. . Some has made fun of me calling me too short to be good looking, but i think they don't know beauty has nothing to do with height.. I use to cry about it but now i'm strong enough to answer their rude remark.. :) stay strong and love yourself...

    I'm 4'8 and 143. I need to lose weight

    but I get hit on a lot more than my tall 5'9 friend. She gets jealous when tall hunky men hits in me. She gets ugly and short guys liking her.

    Short And Proud

    I think i would rather be short than tall. i think for what i do and who i am i am just right in size. I feel im perky and happy most of the time and being five foot is good for that. I cant play the front line in beach volleyball too well, but i can stay closer to the board...

    Ugh I'm so annoyed. I went to the doctor today

    and the nurses were really mean. Why, you ask? Because I'm petite. I'm under 5'2 and under 110 pounds, and when they took my weight and height the nurses said "jeez honey did you stop growing when you were 12?" Um, duh, that's why I'm petite!!! They went on to give me an...

    I am petite and I like it.

    A lot of people dislike being small but really I don't mind it. I don't really notice how small I am compared to my friends unless it's pointed out. For example, the othe day we dug a hole in the sand on a trip to the beach, and we wanted to bury someone in it. I ended up...

    I don't effing know. Who cares! I love being short, although being tall means being model material- i'd never want to be tall or weigh over 130 lbs. Being petite is pretty great!!!

    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...

    that I used to be very tall for my age, but I stop growing taller when I was like 12, I guess. My mom took me to the doctor and he said that I wouldn't grow more. When I heard that, it really made me sad. First, it did bother me. I started comparing myself with tall girls and...

    I'm really petite, I'm only 5ft3 and weigh just under 110lbs. I've always been a small girl, even as a child (I know what you're thinking, all children are small, but I was just that little wee bit smaller) I was so fragile and tiny, my mother used to say I was made of pure glass...

    and not look so much like a child. I hurt my leg though and couldn't work out for 2 weeks. It made me lose weight and now I'm down to 103 lbs at 5'1 :( it's nice to be petite but I want a big *** too!
