My dh likes those. I'm not a big pear fan, so stick with regular apples.
I didn't know they were called Asian pears. We call them apple-pears here, lol.

I don't like the fuzz on peaches either. However, if I peel them first, ( by dropping them in boiling water for a minute and then plunge into cold water) and pit them, I will eat them. I just prepare a bowl of peaches the same as I do strawberries or fresh pineapple. Yum.

Have you tried the Asian pear? It is a cross between an apple and a pear. Yummy. Crunch of an apple with the flavor of the pear.

I've been enjoying some fresh, juicy nectarines this summer, as well as some peaches, which I don't normally eat (the fuzz bugs me, lol).

I was playing on youtube and checking out how to videos. Now I am really into fresh pineapple. Still working on the mango. But really eating a lot more fresh fruit and berries. Yummy.

I think I need to do some grocery shopping, and find some better choices than the ones I have available right now.

I often think that just because it is a special day (or even moderately special, not even a big-deal special day), I can and should overeat, especially treats. *shakes head* Not good. Not good at all.

I have realized that with me, the more I lose, the more I think I can cheat. I have to watch myself on that and realize it is for life. Not just for a goal.

It is funny. I find that different people remember to do different things. It's just how we're wired, I guess.

You do know how to fix it. lol.

If I don't track, I worry so much about going over, I get scared of what to eat. However, I never forget to track exercise. funny.

Not tracking very much, so making bad choices. But at least I know how to fix it, right?

Thanks for asking. I am doing great. And I am making healthy choices since I have come back to SparkPeople. Without tracking, I get lost and overeat and under-exercise. But as long as I stay on here, I do well.

How are you doing?

Just we two, it looks like, eh?
Although others may still be on sparks, just not posting in here.

How are you doing health-wise? Are you making some healthy choices?

Planning, tracking and sticking to it. That is the key. Anytime we quit tracking and planning we will fail sticking to it.

Every day!

Yes, I have the same issues you describe.

Fortunately, I crave competition and my mother and I have made a deal. I am trying to beat her, while she is trying to beat me. The good thing is, when we both win, we will both be healthier for it!

I wish you all the best with your struggles. It does sound like you have a plan of attack, though. Doing one thing first, then getting that under your belt is a great start, I think.

When I first started on sparks (years ago, as you know!), I began with exercise. Now, I find I need to control my eating first, like you are doing.

Good luck!

I do so well.... then something comes up. A birthday party, vacation, I get stuck somewhere and have nothing to snack on that is healthy.

Why is it so hard to get back to when I was doing to well. I was 100% committed! What took away my motivation? Why am I back to the old - "oh well, I start again tomorrow" mentality? I am so frustrated with myself right now. I started 'again' yesterday. I plan to keep tracking as my first line of defense - focusing on my eating right now. If I can get that under control it's smooth(er) sailing.

The main thing I need to improve on is planning. I need to have things ready to go the night before so I'm never caught without my necessary tools.

Anyone else struggling?

Trying to get back on track after the worst year that I can remember.
