I think taxing the junk food is only going to open up a huge can of worms. Because who is going to define what junk food is? Vegetarians would argue that meat is junk food, while I would argue that it's a necessity. I also don't want to see the politicians defining what junk food is because the term junk food is subjective to who is defining it.

5'1.5" - I shrunk from 5'4" Summer: Minesota Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)
Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.
