Nope--everyone's special :D.

Click on "My controls". Then go to "edit avatar settings" on the side of the page. Then either upload a picture or pick one from the gallery! :)

Thanks for helping find out where to go, now I just need to figure out how to resize my own photo to get it down to 50KB, right now it's 1.8MB. I'll ask my husband tomorrow, unless it's really easy and somebody can explain how to use your own photo. :D

Okay. First you need to get it on some sort of a photo editing program. Do you have one on your computer? What program is the photo in right now? Then you need to "crop" it. To do that you usually click on a dotted square/rectangle option. Then you drag the square to fit it around the part of the picture you want to keep. Then you hit crop and the part outside the square is deleted. This gives you a smaller pic. If your husband can do it, you might just ask him about it.

I use Picsizer: http://www.axiomx.com/picsizer.htm

It is terrific!! Doesn't add any weird adware or spyware to your computer. It can make file sizes really small - WONDERFUL for attaching to emails, or sending over the internet otherwise.

I changed mine finally :) celiac3270 YOU SHOULD CHANGE YOURS! :)

Lol :lol: ....a few reasons why I haven't. First, I don't really have anything to put in its place. I don't have a cute dog (used to, but not anymore :( ) that I could use the way Karen does and I don't have any good digital pictures. And all the regular pictures have my family or at least by brother in them so if I scaled it to size, you wouldn't really see me anyway ;) . Also, I've actually become somewhat attached to my waterfall...lol :lol: . I've had it for so long that I feel it's something that's....easily recognizable. I see the waterfall and I don't even need to look at the user name.

So to what am I to change mine? And why? I'm not changing w/o putting up a fight :D

Hey, thanks everyone for the compliments!! I was never a cute kid... so I enjoy the vanity, vicariously (sp?) thru my daughter. *laugh* She is a princess. We just decorated her room. Bright pink (too bright, if you ask me!). Bought a package of Disney' Princess wall decor. 4 sheets, each about a square foot, with the depiction of a princess. Then, she has a princess bed wrap. it's makes her bed look like a carriage, whisking her off to the castle!

".... Oh no! It's midnight! As Cinderella runs to her carriage, she accidentally drops her gluten-free food lists! No time to get them! The next day, the prince sends his men out to find out: Who is the owner of these gluten-free food lists? They knock on the door of Cinderella's home. Her evil stepsisters try to deny that she was ever at the ball!! Cinderella brings out a package of Queen Pamela's gluten-free brownie mix, and they realize she is the woman they have been looking for!"

Awww, c'mon celiac3270, take a walk on the wild side!!!!! ;)

With you surgery giving you the gift of a whole new life, I think you should celebrate with a new avatar to mark the occasion....... Mmmmmmmm, lets see.........

Well, I think we are all going to have to collectively put our heads together and come up with a new "theme" for celiac3270!!!!!

Let's see, you like hockey....... what is your favourite team? Rangers or Islanders... Do you have a favourite player?

Or how about a picture of the sun at sunrise, to signify the dawning of a new day for you....... B)

Do you have a favourite cartoon character?

How about your dream destination.... if you could go anywhere, where would it be?

The possibilities are endless!!!!! :lol:

There are endless possibilites, but about the ones suggested so far....I love hockey, but I'm so annoyed at the strike and as much as I love the sport, a hockey player wouldn't be a...role model to me...I want to do something more intellectual with my life :D . Uhh.....I don't have any dream destination...don't watch cartoons, just reality tv :D:lol: . I could get a pic. of a sunrise from the good old avatar gallery, but that would quickly become as dull as this one :P . I'll think of it and see if I can get a picture of myself or something....It'll be difficult to part with my good old waterfall, though :(

Congratulations, Mela :)

    • Thankyou ch88 you are so very kind, im so glad there are forums like this, so helpful.  Only signed up the other day and everyone is great.
    • My GI told me that everything looked great visually (endoscopy), but my biopsies revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage.  ☹️  You just have to wait for the pathologist's report.  
    • I ate there July 23 2017, had cheeseburger with gluten free bun (charged extra 2 dollars) which tasted very good. dressed burger with tomato, pickles and onion and even mayo with no unpleasant affects.  I appreciated the choice of gluten-free bun.  Also, the young man serving us asked if I wanted my French fries on the same plate as my burger, I guess their fries are not fried in a dedicated fryer.  Nice of him to give me a heads up though.  I am NCGS not proved as celiac disease.
    • I think you will find that aromatherapy is safe.  I have had the same thing when having facials many, many times over 12 years gluten free and have never, ever had a problem. I have never found any aromatherapy that contained gluten. I am a very sensitive, diagnosed Celiac.  As far as lotion is concerned, you won't have a problem if you wash your hands, which I cannot imagine NOT doing before eating.  That is Celiac 101.  You only have to screen hand lotions for personal use and anything that goes onto the lips.  Eye drops also should be gluten-free as you put that directly into the eye and it can make it's way down into your gut. Hair salons........no, never had a problem.  If a salon uses good products, they will not contain gluten. Again, in 12 years of checking anything new they use, never found any gluten component.  I color and trim my hair once a month and I'm pretty sure I'd be dead by now if I ingested gluten for so often for 12 years.  You really do not want to ingest anything that is sprayed and I can't say that I have.  It's a bad idea for many other reasons besides gluten. I know you are newly diagnosed and yes, you need to check ingredients BUT gluten is not everywhere. If you check whatever they are using and it does not contain the dreaded gluten, then do not worry about it.
    • There is a lot of information on site about living with Celiac disease. A good idea is to take a look at the "coping with" section and the "newbie info 101" thread. There is a lot of good information about cross contamination and proper nutrition.
