There was an article in the Wall Street Journal yesterday on "Beyond Trans Fats:  What You Need To Know About Restaurant Dining."  It is by Tara Parker-Pope.

I often walk down to the junction and reward myself with a latte and a "goodie" at Starbucks.   I wonder why I haven't been losing weight or even maintaining.  I read here that "snacks and drinks often add up to almost a full day's worth of calories."  "A Grand Latte (260 calories) and slice of crumb cake (670 calories) from Starbucks may sound like a quick snack, but it's loaded with 930 calories.  Snack on it once a week and you'll pack on nearly 14 pounds in a year."

That seems unfathomable to me, and yet, I see how the numbers definitely add up.   Wow!!    I guess walking is its own reward, and that is obviously so!!

Happy walking, though today, it may be in rain.   Actually, yesterday I savored walking in the mist, and scurrying through the gobbling torrent of rain.   True delight!
