I Have Been Weighed, Measured, and Found Wanting

My new scale has arrived!  I have my starting weight: 236.2.

My Body Mass Index (BMI) is 31.2, which puts me in the obese category.  BMI has its problems, but it is a good rough estimate.

I want to get my BMI into the normal range (around 24ish).  But I'm flexible about how to reach this goal.  The most obvious means for lowering my BMI into the normal range is to lose weight.  Losing 56 pounds would get me there (I would weigh 180).

But I'm a flexible sort of fellow.  Perhaps I am overweight.  Or maybe I am just under-tall.  I am totally open to growing a little taller, as my weight would be more appropriate on a taller body.  Given my current weight, I will need to grow to 6' 10" to fall within the "normal" BMI range.  That's 9 inches taller.

... Anyone know how to safely and painlessly grow 9 inches?  Lemme know...

If you figure out how to grow taller, let me know. I'll buy a bottle of that stuff.
