    Wild About Watermelons!

    According to Brownielocks today is National Watermelon Day!

    Watermelons ... a sweet, drippy, juicy way to learn! ;) So let's start out with some watermelon facts:

    Watermelon Facts:
    * Watermelons are more than 90% water. That's how it got its name!
    * For that reason, in ancient times travelers used them as a source of transportable water.
    * They probably originated in Africa, but are now grown around the world.
    * They are part of the gourd family.
    * They grow on a vine and must be replanted yearly.
    * Most people consider them to be a fruit, but horticulturists consider them a vegetable.
    * They vary in size and shape. The Japanese recently even developed a SQUARE watermelon!
    * The outside of the watermelon is the rind.
    * Inside the watermelon you'll find the flesh (the stuff you eat), and seeds.
    * Watermelons can be different colors inside and out, as well as the amount of seeds that they contain.
    * Most watermelons weigh from 5 - 40 pounds, but some get as large as 100 pounds.
    * The 1996 Guiness Book of Records lists the largest watermelon as being 262 pounds!
    * The seeds (like the pumpkin's seeds) can also be roasted and eaten.
    * Some people use the watermelon rind for making preserves, pickles, or relish.
    * That makes the whole watermelon edible!

    Thanks so much for the comment on the compliments blog. I try to use some of my blogs to parse out some of the things I am feeling and I'm glad that it helps out other SparkPeople put things into perspective as well. Weight loss is definitely a mental game as well!

    Keep up the excellent work and have a great day!

    You sound like me when it comes to the scales. I hate 'em. emoticon And years ago, (about 100 lbs ago for me), I thought I was fat! HA! The things we learn. :)
    Hope to see you often on the team threads. Check out the daily quizzes and questions... it's fun to test our horror knowledge. Good luck with all your healthy goals! emoticon

    Hi! My name is Amy! Just wanted to stop in and say hi! I saw you posting on the boards and saw that we have similar weight goals! I just started SparkPeople this week. Maybe we can check in with each other periodically and keep each other on track!
