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! In an effort to help keep everyone warm in the colder temperatures and all the snow, we need to get ourselves giggling. So let's get our giggles going to warm us up this morning . . . I don't mean to air my dirty laundry in public, but I have loads of laundry jokes. I promise you they're all clean. If you think there's nothing funny about doing laundry, you just need a dryer sense of humor. Sock it to me!!!

    Have you heard about the new and improved energy star rated clothes dryer that's being touted by the government for its very high 99% energy efficiency . . .
    It's called a clothesline.

    Why don't men like doing the laundry?
    Washers and dryers don't come with a remote control.

    If doing laundry makes you tired, and you decide you've done enough - you'd better think twice . . .
    More laundry!

    What do income taxes and doing laundry have in common.
    Either way you might lose your shirt.

    When I was in college money was tight. Quite often I had to choose between buying laundry detergent or something for breakfast. It was either All or muffin.

    How much fun is doing laundry?
    Loads!

    If your toddler gets all muddy while playing outside, just throw her in the tub and quickly washer and dryer.

    Why are poker players good at doing laundry?
    They know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, know when they run . . .

    Today has been a perfect finish to my week!
    Every sock in the washer had a matching partner.

    I hope my sense of humor did not leave you hanging high and dry this morning . . .

    Finally . . .

    Knock, knock.
    Who's there?
    Clothes.
    Clothes who?
    Time for me to clothes this now.

    Thanks for dropping by my page for a visit.
    I hope you have loads of fun this weekend!

    Happy Friday! Love is in the air! They say "love is a many splendored thing", and so I thought it might be a-propose for some Valentine giggles about marriage to get ourselves in the right frame of mind for the weekend ahead. Believe me, this was no half-hearted project for me; I put my whole heart into it! I know you're getting excited, and can heartly wait, so let's get pumpin' . . .

    emoticon After a quarrel, a wife said to her husband, 'You know, I was a fool when I married you.”
    The husband replied, 'Yes, dear, but I was in love and didn't even notice.”

    emoticon A man inserted an ad in the classifieds: It read: “Wife wanted”.
    The next day he received hundreds of letters.
    They all said the same thing: 'You can have mine.”

    emoticon If a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her.

    emoticon "I married Miss Right. I just didn't realize her first name was Always."

    emoticon A husband said to his wife, "No, I don't hate your relatives. In fact, I like your mother-in-law better than I like mine."

    emoticon A woman turns to her husband on their silver wedding anniversary and says, Honey, will you still love me when my hair turns grey?"
    Her husband replies, "Why not? I stuck with you through the other six shades."


    emoticon After finishing our Chinese food, my husband and I cracked open our fortune cookies.
    "You go first", he said.
    Mine read, “Be quiet for a little while.”
    "Now it's your turn", I said.
    His read, “Talk while you have a chance.”

    emoticon My wife just nudged me and said, "You weren't even listening, were you?".
    I thought, That's a strange way to start a conversation. . .

    emoticon An interviewer asked a married couple what their secret was to their long and happy marriage.
    The husband chimed in, "My wife and I always compromise."
    "I admit I'm wrong, and she agrees with me."


    emoticon Shortly before our 25th wedding anniversary, my husband sent 25 long-stemmed yellow roses to me at my office.
    A few days later, I plucked all the petals and dried them. On the night of our anniversary, I spread the petals over the bed and lay on top of them, wearing only a negligee.
    As I’d hoped, I got a reaction from my husband.
    When he saw me, he shouted, “Are those potato chips?”

    I hope some of these made you laugh wholeheartedly! emoticon

    I heartily wish each of you a very Happy Valentine's Day! Enjoy your weekend!

    It's Friday, and with much of the country having snow this week, I thought you might appreciate some winter jokes. For those of you who live in the Northern states, I know that winter is snow problem for you.
    By now, all of you snow how this works - You read . . . you laugh. However, if you don't like them, please don't give me the cold shoulder.

    Why do bees stay in their hives during the winter months?
    'Swarm

    A wife texts her husband at work on a very cold and icy morning. . .
    "Windows frozen, won't open."
    Her husband types back:
    "Gently pour some lukewarm water over it."
    Wife texts back five minutes later:
    "Computer is really screwed up now."

    What do you call a hacker stuck in his house during a winter blizzard?
    Edward Snowed-in

    Yup, ol' man winter paid us a visit. This morning I had to scrape the ice and snow off my windshield. I used my supermarket's loyalty card. I only got 10% off.

    Knock, knock.
    Who's there?
    Icy.
    Icy who?
    Icy another snowstorm coming!

    Knock, knock.
    Who's there?
    Accordion.
    Accordion who?
    Accordion to the weather report it's going to snow again tomorrow.

    How do snowmen get their email?
    On the winternet.

    Knock, knock.
    Who's there?
    Noah.
    Noah who?
    Noah good joke about snow?

    And finally . . . Thought for today
    East or West, home is best.
    There's snow place like home . . .
    Especially when it's snowing!

    Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your weekend, and stay cool!
