Varmint Exposed! in Food Traditions & Culture Posted July 12, 2003 I'm now down to 212 for a total weight loss of 16 pounds to this point. Slow and steady. I'm not as draconian as I was when I started, but I'm very, very conscious of my portion size, what I'm eating, and how frequently. I'm pleased. Great news, Mr. Varmint! Slow and steady weight loss is the absolute right way to go about the matter; it's healthier, you don't feel deprived and thus likely to backslide, and you're apt to keep those pesky pounds off permanently.Please continue to keep us posted . . .
