Howdy Jane
I can understand your irritation Jane. If I did the hard work of losing nearly 54 lbs I'd want to show myself off too.

Now what MAY be happening is there are 2 places to store pictures. On your profile you want to select the link directly below your profile picture which says "Update My Picture" (not the link beneath it saying "View More Photos " - the "more photos" seem to be separate from your profile pics - .)

After you select "Update My Picture" a screen will pop up which says in big bold type: "Add a Profile Picture" click the "browse" button, and select the pic you want from your computer then click on "upload and crop" button. Once you're satisfied with your uploaded picture then doubleclick on the picture you want as your profile for all to see.

Hope this is helpful. There seem to be several at DC who have had trouble with this issue.

Yes, you can update your profile picture with the steps that Jay has shared.

We don't mean to make it hard to upload pictures. Now if the photo that you are wanting to upload is too large, it will not allow it to upload. If it is a digital photo, see if you can reduce the size of it in the computer and try to upload it again. If it is a picture you are scanning, crop it down to a smaller size and try again. Make sure also that your format is a jpg. That is the easiest to upload. If you have a bitmap or a gif file, you might have troubles as well.

Please, if you are having trouble, feel free to contact John Crowley and he will get you hooked up with the technical team to see if there is a problem with the program. We want you to have fun here, not pull your hair out.

Losing weight by pulling all your hair out doesn't count you know. LOL!!
That is great! I am stuck. I thought for sure I would have lost weight last month, but the scale was not nice to me this morning. bummer.
