    ... all by yourself?

    Or know anybody who did?

    Admittedly this is the frivolous question of the day... well, it's been kind of a long week, and... the mind does tend to wander...

    I would never make it through a big watermelon. But the little ones are doable.

    I would if I wasn't allergic to them. I love watermelon but I can't even have a small bite.

    Never ate a whole one, but thought I would be able to. I love watermelon. I've eaten my share and then some. Probably ate half of a big one - and - I wasn't even fat, then.

    YES!!!!! When I was pregnant with my daughter, 36 yrs ago !!!) I CRAVED watermelon! And in those days you couldn't get it just any time of the year like now. I also was trying to keep my weight down so I was NOT indulging in watermelon. Doctors said I was due July 3.....by July 27, I still hadn't had her. Doc took xrays and said she wasn't going to come for another 2 weeks. I thru a hissy fit, cried, stomped, and finally sat down and ate a WHOLE watermelon -- a BIG one, too! LOL LOL -- that night I went into labor! had her 2 days later!!!!! :)

    I've done it! I love watermelon and can't get enough of it.

    I have an insatiable appetite and never get full. It's horrible, I'm always hungry. I believe insulin has something to do with it, as I'm taking 140 units a day.

    BTW, I don't eat like that now.

    I had to check this out because my thought was it can't be done. But, I see it can!!
    I've eaten a LOT of watermelon at once, but never a whole one.
    Any time I've eaten a lot, I regret it because it goes right through me. :)

    When I was little, my mom used to let us kids eat just watermelon for lunch sometimes. Yum!

    We love watermelon, but haven't eaten a whole one at one sitting, probably could if I tried. (Funny story) - our dog had an inner ear infection one time that made her so dizzy she couldn't stand up. I could feed her food out of my hand, but not water. Luckily it was summer, we had watermelon here and I could feed her that for hydration. She loved it!!

    Too funny Sharon b. I have been eating watermelon all week with my mom. We bought a medium sized one that is so red and sweet. Can't get enough. Haven't ate a whole one yet. I can see how one could though. It is mostly water.
