Im 14 years old boy and im about 177 cm(i think its about 5" 8 feet?) and I started worrying about my height bcs i think my growth is slowed down and I see my friends which were shorter than me getting taller... By info I get in my country people are pretty tall... My mom is about 173 cm but my dad is almost 2m i think 195 and my older brother(19) is 197... What do you guys think should I worry about it and how tall am I going to be till 18?

P.S. I stopped going to swimming(training 3 times a week) I started going to gym and I dont too much healthy-too many sweets... Myb its the cause why i slowed down with growing

The fact that both of your parents are tall makes it very likely that you'll be a tall adult as well, as long as you're provided with the correct nutrition throughout your adolescence to ensure your growth won't be stunted, but it takes a VERY poor diet consisting of few meats to cause stunted growth, so I don't think you have to worry about that.
