I don't understand the question. I didn't start investing in 2007 so the decline in 2008 is just one of many "bumps" in the road (more of a pothole I guess:) Granted, 2008 was much larger than the other bumps, but I don't measure my gains from some arbitrary peak or valley in the market.
FWIW our investments value has gained 30% since Dec '07, but 25% of that gain is added contributions.
Our real average gains for all investments (without adding money) are:
1 Month ROI 3.63%
