My New Year's resolution is to learn how to be happy again and just do me.

I am a giver. I put others before myself, often neglect myself, and have my kindness and caring nature taken advantage of. Sometimes to help others best, you have to help yourself first, and that is what I am working on.

The past year has given me several setbacks, many of which I didn't respond well to, so here I am. I don't have many reliable friends or a good support system if you take away the people I know online. I am recovering from being hit by a car which messed up my knee, ankle, and nerve functions in part of one arm/hand. I have auto-immune disorder, and doctors can't clearly identify many details or exactly what disease it is. I had pre-cancerous cells removed from some of my reproductive organs. And I am trying to fight off depression and really figure out who I am again. It's gotta get better sooner or later.

I'm not here to cater to others or censor myself in what I say or write, I'm here for me. I leave my journal and other things on here public because anyone is welcome to join me, and you just might be going though the same things.

"If it's bringing you down or holding you back, you're better off without it."

kiwi skin
2 links to share here (1 for comparison). I figure if you'd like to add an item to the database since you do consume them with the skin, you can use this to go by.

kiwi skin
"Can you eat the skin of a kiwifruit? Absolutely! The kiwifruit skin is completely edible and makes this nutrient-dense fruit even more nutritious! A recent study shows that eating the skin triples the fiber intake compared to merely eating the flesh. And by not peeling the skin, you preserve much of the vitamin C content as well. People all over the world have been eating the skin for centuries with no complaints. And many find that leaving the skin on their sliced kiwifruit makes it much easier for snacking, as the skin holds each slice together. Just like any fresh fruit or vegetable, we suggest that you wash the skin before eating since it is unknown who or what touched it before you did. So enjoy your kiwifruit, skin and all!"

Found on kiwifruit.org website. I personally have never tried it.

Worth recording measurements?
Yes, I find measuring very helpful as a tracker over time, but I only measure every 1-3 months. I personally feel that measuring more often than that will take away the "wow factor" for me.

What is the deal with Net kCal???
That category shows what you have eaten is less than what you have expended for the day. Keep in mind that this website will prefill "exercise" of sleep and rest. Typical advice is to always try to make that arrow show in the green with a number of 500 or greater for weight loss of at least 1 pound a week.
