There I was, a short, shy and introverted, chubby high school kid trying to fit in. I really wanted to transform my body so I could become more athletic and feel more confident. Instead, I felt embarrassed, overlooked, rejected, insignificant and inadequate because of my short stature. It was painful.
The thing is, at the time, I was trying to find any useful information on enhancing my physique, specifically how to maximize and increase my height.
The big problem was that everywhere I researched, looked, and asked (including my family doctor), it was just presumed that you grew what you grew and nobody questioned it.
