I''m currently going to TOPS after being a lifetime WW member and I'm doing good this time around. Over the years I've had a poblem of continuing to lose and gain weight over and over. It's crazy to live like this, but it's the story of my life. I still keep a lot of my healthy habits, like giving up diet soft drinks for water. I eat healthy and stay on track through the week, but I struggle with weekends. I also binge eat sometimes which can result in gaining back every thing I lost through the week. I haven't quite figured out why I sabotage myself. I think losing weight is so much more than just watching what you eat. You have to figure out what caused you to get this way and then turn it around to prevent the cycle. I'm still working on that! LOL TOPS really is helping me get my life back. My TOPS family have given me the encouragement and support I need to help me stay accountable. I look forward to the meetings and enjoy the fun contests and friendships we share. The struggle is real, but together, we are reaching our goals and enjoying the journey.

    Happy Friday! It's the beginning of a long holiday weekend, and one we as Americans love to celebrate - Independence Day. It is sad that this term is now used infrequently. Why not remind others what the celebration is all about? People have forgotten what 4th of July really is about. It's not just another day for cookouts, fun, and fireworks. Our July 4th commemorates what our ancestors fought for, and the freedom(s) that we have, and use everyday. It's not fireworks and parties. That's just what makes it fun. Wish all your friends and family "A Happy Independence Day", and help them remember, too!

    I'm hoping I can fire up your enthusiasm for some holiday fun with these hot jokes. I hope you'll get a real bang out of them!

    emoticon What kind of tea did the American colonists want?
    Liberty!

    emoticon Did you hear the joke about the Liberty Bell?
    It cracked me up!

    emoticon A battery and a firework were arrested.
    They charged one, and let the other one off.

    emoticon Which colonists told the most jokes?
    Punsylvanians!

    emoticon What's red, white, and blue and likes to wave?
    The American flag.

    This one will crack you up. . .
    emoticon How come there are no knock knock jokes about America?
    Because freedom rings!

    emoticon Why did the colonial doctor give America a clean bill of health?
    It had a good, strong constitution.

    emoticon What did the little firecracker say to the big firework?
    Hi Pop!

    emoticon What would you get if you crossed a patriot with a very classy, curly-haired dog?
    A Yankee Poodle Dandy.

    I hope you didn't find any of these jokes to be flame-outs or real duds!
    Enjoy your weekend and keep freedom ringing! emoticon

    There's a big difference between bad jokes and dad jokes.
    It's the first letter.

    Classic Dadisms:

    Measure once, cut twice. Measure twice, cut once.

    Don't make me stop this car!

    If all your friends decided to jump off a bridge would you do it too?

    Shut the door! I know you weren't born in a barn!

    Righty tighty; lefty loosey.

    Your mother is right even when she's wrong.

    Go ask your mother.

    Do you think I'm made of money?

    You're going to like it, wheteher you like it or not.

    Don't speed!

    Don't forget to change the oil.

    And finally . . .

    Dear Dad,

    $chool i$ really great. I am making lot$ of friend$ and $tudying very hard. With all my $tuff, I $imply can't think of anything I need, $o if you would like, you can ju$t $end me a card, a$ I would love to hear from you.

    Love,
    Your $on


    Here's the father's reply to the above:

    Dear Son,

    I kNOw that astroNOmy, ecoNOmics, and oceaNOgraphy are eNOugh to keep even an hoNOr student busy. Do NOt forget that the pursuit of kNOwledge is a NOble task, and you can never study eNOugh.

    Dad
