performance: losing 6.1 lb a week
I am 5'2", petite with small body frame. I am not curvy, and I have smaller chest and narrow hip. My body looks very straight and doesn't look having "small waist", especially when I am heavy, but that's my body type. My body shape is more like Nicole Kidman and Cameron Diaz's body shape (I am NOT that skinny, I know), not Eva Mendez. It is really unfortunate for me, but it's okay.
Before moving to the U.S., my weight was around 115 lbs (52kg), which was my healthy weight and not skinny at all. I gradually gained weight due to changes in my lifestyle, and I hit 135 in 2008. That was my "moment" to think about my weight more seriously.
My health issues:
+Congenital Hip dysplasia (or "developmental dysplasia of hip (DDH)")... My hip joints are weak since I was born. I had surgery of my left hip joint at age 14, but my condition is considered as relatively mild, not severe. I still need to avoid high impact exercise (this had been my best excuse to avoid any exercise) and not to be overweight.
+Had partial thyroidectomy in December 2009... Prior to surgery, my thyroid level was good, and I only had a nodule on my neck(=thyroid). My doctor found cancer cell (Papillary thyroid cancer) in it, but it was microscopic and all are gone now. To reduce future risk, I am prescribed to take medication rest of my life. As of 2010, I am new to this condition, so I am still observing any changes in my body. This experience gave me new reason to lose weight and be healthier.
My Historical Weight:
03/10/09 135 lb
02/10/10 134 ... I got serious of losing weight
09/08/10 115 ... got too busy with school work and stop exercising
**MY ULTIMATE GOALS: weight=106lb.(48kg); waist=24.5in.(62cm)**
