Throwback Thursday: Reflecting on 2015!

Well this is a happy coincidence. Not only is it Throwback Thursday time, it is New Year’s Eve.

The news and the internet are FILLED with sensationalized stories. This post is a jump off from yesterday’s regarding the study done on how you can no longer be fat and fit.  Precisely, this post was to be an offshoot from the comparison of obesity to terrorism.
