Okay, so weight loss may not actually make you taller, but it makes you seem taller in several ways.
1. Weight loss causes increased confidence which in turn causes one to have better posture creating the illusion of being taller.
2. Weight loss decreases or eliminates foot and joint pain, causing women to be more likely to wear high heels when they didn’t before.
3. When you aren’t as large around, especially in the hip, butt and thigh regions, your clothes don’t need to stretch as far and your pants suddenly become longer. Because your clothes fit better, you’ll appear taller.
All of the above are strange but true. Amazingly, I’m no longer having to seek out “tall” length pants for my 5’6″ self because average lengths are now appropriate and no longer look like flood pants.
