I made this siggy for the current Siggy Challenge:

This size is currently 658 KB. I can change the settings to 128 colours and drecrese the dither and increase the lossy but then I lose a large amount of quality. I know any GIF is going to be grainy, but the quality loss is too much when I make those changes. So, why is it so huge in the first place? There's not really much to it. I take the transparency off, too. If I change this particular siggy to 128 colours, it is still over 500K. Maybe if I can figure out why I keep having such huge sized files to begin with, I can make changes to what I'm doing so I won't run into that problem! TIA!
