I don't understand the thing about getting taller...
Maybe if you're still under 16 it is possible to grow another two inches but if not then you might be stuck at 5'2.
As for getting in shape, weight doesn't matter a lot of the time. It depends on your build and if you're carrying more muscle or more fat.
From personal experience I've actually gained about 3lbs in the past year but I lost an inch off my waist and hips, (also gained a cup size) because of working out and eating healthy. You need to eat right, you need to do cardio, and you definitely need to do weight training.
Try controlling your calorie intake and what you eat. Try to eat 1500 to 1800 calories a day of good things. Allow yourself to have a naughty day to eat whatever you like. That way you have something to look forward to and eating bad one day of the week isn't going to hurt you. If anything you will be apprehensive in doing so. And as hard as it is, try laying off the white rice : ( I know how hard it can be. If you can substitute your starch with sweet potatoes or brown rice. Or even with the white rice mix some beans in it. Also drink lots of water (and tea). No soft drinks. Milk and some fruit juice is okay.
As for cardio and working out, try to dedicate at least an hour three times a week. 30 minutes of cardio at least, and 20-30 minutes of weight lifting. And when you're out walk around more and at a faster pace. For lifting weights I would recommend 5lbs if you are not used to it. Work out every part of the body. Do push ups (which will make the chest perkier), do leg lifts to target lower stomach, do squats and so on. It really does work.
Best of luck to you : )

Okay, I'm not trying to be mean but either you have your weight wrong or those aren't pictures of yourself. Your belly and hips look really big for someone that is 105 lbs.

i also think you have your weight wrong because i'm 5'1 and i weight 119. but i look much thinner than you. i am not an apple shape but given that i am 14 pounds heavier than you, i would be thicker than you are.
i think you should look into burning calories through exercise rather than restricting your dietary calories too much. given your young age and your desire to grow a few inches, restricting calories isn't your way to go. you should be burning the calories through exercise instead.
you should also lay off the bagels. bagels aren't good for you. and make sure that your yogurt is full of good ingredients instead of fillers and things like that.
i think you should start insanity instead. it's much more effective than those youtube videos. plus it's less aggravating than those people in those youtube videos. i don't know how you manage to work out to those videos.

Like some have mentioned, I also think you’re approaching this the wrong way. I wouldn’t worry too much about losing weight ‘cause 105 lbs is actually a good weight for someone your size. Like you, I have the same height, weight, and wide boned hips. When I was around your age, I had the same problem as you do. However, I now keep a thin figure ‘cause I eat healthy (without having to reduce my calorie intake by much either). I don’t even exercise a lot…maybe hiking once in a while, but that’s it! That’s not to say you shouldn’t exercise, ‘cause you should! Don’t be a lazy bum like me. LOL…
Anyway, I think your intake of carbohydrates might be the issue. There was one day that you had fried rice for both lunch and dinner. First of all, I never eat rice twice in a day. Only during dinner do I eat rice, that’s if I even eat rice at all. Second of all, I don’t eat anything that is fried or has the word “fried” in it. I know you said that you don’t add any oils to your fried rice, but the fact that you fried it means that you’re stripping it of it’s healthy nutrients, leaving you nothing but pure carbohydrates. Third of all, you should substitute white rice for brown rice. It’s a better option for a healthier diet.
Also, you need to intake foods with more fiber. It will make you full faster, and it’s better for your digestion. You should eat more vegetables and fruits. You also don’t need to eliminate bread from your diet. I love bread and can’t imagine my life without it, but I only eat whole wheat bread. Try going whole grain for your pasta/noodles too ‘cause they’re healthier, lower in fat, and richer in fiber.
Beware of how you cook your foods. Cooking your food with oil is not a bad thing. You just need to be cautious of what kind of oil you use. I use extra virgin olive oil a lot ‘cause it’s heart healthy and reduces bad cholesterol. Research has even identified it as a good source for weight loss. Besides, you still want to have your essential fats and oils in your healthy diet. Lastly, just be careful of how you season your food and especially watch your sodium intake.
Remember, eat healthy to BE HEALTHY and NOT ‘cause you want to lose weight. Honestly, the key to a healthy diet is just eating in moderation…

LLOL I don't cook the food, my grandpa does. I just eat what ever they have but I think I should stop doing that too. Hm, I think I should start eating more healthier and maybe cook for myself =.=

Insanity look insane LOL I can't do a single push up..And I don't have money to pay for insanity, don't have credit card to do that and parent won't let me saying waste of money. So no choice but to lower calories and diet infront of youtube.

that's because i think the videos you posted up are a joke. insanity looks insane because it works. there's always beginner modifications for all the workouts. you can adjust any workout to your level of fitness. you don't need to buy insanity. you can look up schedules of insanity and people list the exercises in order.
don't be naive. i used to think that you can't get in shape unless you joined a gym. there's so many possibilities out there.
i'm just letting you know that you aren't going to reach your goal at the rate you are going. the combination of the things you are doing isn't going to cut it. if you want results, you need to make some real changes and stop making excuses to why you can't do this or that.

You could try motivating your family to eat healthy too...that's what I did with mine. It also helps to have their support. Anyway, good luck with everything!

the pump it up dance that you posted, those are so 80s aerobics workout. i mean it reminded me of what i used to do during that time in hope to lose weight.. but failed terribly. not losing weight at all. those cardio are not intense enough to lose weight. i am doing insanity and i just wish they have insanity back then during the 80s. haha! insanity works. you may wanna try it.. it's ok if you can't start it good. i started from having really bad stamina too and now i have build it up.
as for the jung dayeon's exercise.. her arms exercise.. really feel the burning. haha! i am sure it will work as for toning and all; however, it's not enough if you wanna lose weight. you need to combine this exercise with an intense cardio workout. this is just a side workout for you apart from cardio.
