Wink Hello Group!!

Just wanted to say hi!!! My sister has been on this site for awhile, and all she does is talk about all the good info, so I had to be a glutton and join as well!

So... Hello!!!!!!

Can anyone tell me how to get my picture small enough to be an avatar??

Hello Ella Shay!

I dunno what photo editing software you have but this is what I got from the avatar upload page:

"Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 110 by 110 pixels or 78.1 KB (whichever is smaller)."

So you need to squish your picture down to the above specs. Maybe even smaller... but try the above ones first. I had to adjust mine a couple times before it was officially "blessed" and put through hehehe!

Welcome to the boards! Are you an Atkins plan person as well? (I'm doing low-carb WW at this point but have done 100% Atkins in the past.)

Welcome Ella !!!

Gotta ask, who's your sister ?

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."
