I began 2007 by starting on the Atkins diet again. On Monday, January 1, of this year, I weighed 242 lb.

By summer, I had knocked that down to 225 lb. Then, as Fall came on, I began to bulk up again. Today, my final weigh-in of the year was 229 lb.

That makes my net weight loss for the year 13 lb. Good, but not good enough. I must forge ahead.
