Nope, wish I was taller, 5' 6". I'm in good shape though, and getting better. I think there's always gonna be something people'll want to change about their body.

I don't have height stigma since I have dated girls just as tall or taller than I.

It's easier to drink food than chew it.

Homemade weight gainers, google it.

No! I inherited tiny skinny legs from my dad and an egg shaped torso. I had scoliosis as a kid and multiple operations for it, so I'm sort of an odd shape.

I must also add that I'm nowhere near the image you might have in your head, so I guess i'm not too unhappy with myself. But I do sweat a lot. I always envy people who can just put a t shirt on and exist without having to worry about a sweaty outline of their busted spine showing.

This is ignorance. Skinny people get bullied just as bad as overweight people.
A girl I knew in high school, who has been a professional model since then, got bullied as fuck. She internalized it really bad.

I'm really open to suggestions :)

Im a little heavier than I'd like and my hair is thinning, which is upsetting.

I can get away from most embarrassment by never letting anybody see me naked until the day I die.

Yes I'm happy . At 31, I have all my hair and teeth, no aches or pains , and I keep a low body fat relatively easily . I suppose I'd like to be 6'2 or whatever but meh 5'11 and change is good enough . I wish my hands were bigger so I could dunk a basketball but again nothing to lose sleep over.

I'm lighter than I've been in over a decade, which is good. Still more to go. But I've also sorta reached the hump (37) where I know it's all downhill from here. And my health is already pretty dire as it is.

(So I guess no. I don't like my body.)

Hmm, 180 with 22%? At 6'4? Yeah I see why you would want to lose fat and gain muscle at the same time but honestly, I would stick to working out and slowly getting that bodyfat down.

Get to whatever percentage you're comfortable(15-16?) and ofc, use the mirror as your guide as well. Not all of us are built the same.

Set your goals, work out, get that fat down to where you want and then start slowly building muscle - be careful here, your body will be inclined to take in more fat so try to be strict with your diet.

Be patient, changes in us tall guys are not as noticeable as it would be for someone shorter. Stick with it.

Go to the bodybuilding site, they've got everything you need.

Overall, yes.
I've been told I'm very handsome. I'm in borderline incredible shape for my age, and getting better all the time.
The only negative is I'm on the shorter side, but maybe that'll keep me from scaring a cop enough to shoot me 6 times in the chest/back if I ever move back to the USA.

Not even remotely. It's not terrible, I go to the gym a few times a week, but it's not good by any means. I'm short and I hate the way my hair and my facial hair grows.

But luckily I have someone who likes it a great deal more than I do, which helps keep me sane.

What do you mean?

Stretch marks and excess skin, dark patches because I was diabetic when I was 300+lbs.

I'm still happier with out the weight though, I look a million times better and because I'm such a gym rat now I'm fairly fit.

Thanks for the advice. I guess I need to take a more strict diet. My weight isn't my problem, I'm actually quite happy with that, just the bodyfat.

Any tips or links regarding a good diet or routine?
