As a fat kid, fat teen, fat adult, I dreamed of being a normal weight. Well, finally, I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high; 50 pounds below Dec. 2008 weight. In 2009 I achieved healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I "always" wanted! Check out my SparkPeople Success Story:

    I love the smaller watermelons: about the size of a soccer ball? Usually seedless and exceptionally sweet! At my supermarket slices are also available rather than whole melons.

    You are a great inspiration! Your comments made me realize I didn't need to stay on a Beck page until I "get" it. I need to press on. I can do Beck over and over until I do get it!!! emoticon

    Hello Marsha, Thank you for the tip! The next time that I make ambrosia, I will try the greek yogurt and let you know what I think! Have a healthy day! Hugs, Rose:) emoticon

    I just saw your post about multiple pictures on the banner image. Yes, it is set up to accept only one file but if you scan (or photograph) the pictures you want all together the way you want them, it will save as one image. Then you can post that as your banner. You can also do it with photo editing software, but as long as you are saving it as one file you will get the banner you want.
