After a long hiatus caused by technology issues, The Restaurant Dieter is back with a new look, a new name and a new WordPress website.

The blog is now Healthy Restaurant Eating by The Restaurant Dieter. It’s better for search engine optimization.

I don’t think I can blame the weight gain on the blog’s dormant state, but they certainly seemed to go hand-in-hand. On Oct. 21, I returned from 18 days vacationing in China. I was getting close to 225 pounds — a hair from the 232.6 when I started on Weight Watchers in 2007.

So back to Weight Watchers for me. As of Saturday’s weigh-in, I was down to 212. More to come on China (and the food), the weight loss journey and all the restaurants that do — and do not — make it easy for the dieters among us.
