following: LoreFerro's own diet
performance: losing 0.4 lb a week

I am from Caracas Venezuela and I moved to Atlanta 2 1/2 years ago. I have struggle with my weight my entire life. I think I have tried every single diet and unfortunately I have gained the weight back. When I was 19 years old I had Thyroid cancer (Papillary) and with surgery I got removed half of my thyroid. When I moved to the US I was 135pounds and happy than ever about my weight, however I knew that I lose the weight starving my self and of course that is not the best way. My hormones stated work crazy and I gaining between 2 to 3 pounds per week doing diet and exercise. I end gaining in 6 months 60 pounds... I was devastated so at the end I got other surgery to removed the remaining part of my thyroid (total thyroidectomy), then I received radioactive iodide.
Since my surgery (189 pounds) December 2008 I decided to loose the weight in a healthier way... It have been very difficult but I keep working out and eating healthy because mo matter what the scale says I know that I am getting healthier... I ran my first 5K (34 min) in November 2009, it was a very emotional experience so I decided to do a 10K in February (Feb 21 2010) as my second challenge !!!! I am 168pounds now and getting better every day :)

I am a survivor and I am going to be what I want to be !!!
