Steve Jobs, the one-time wunderkind co-founder of Apple, says he's not ailing.

"As many of you know, I have been losing weight throughout 2008," the 53 year-old Jobs said Monday in a letter addressing the Apple community. "The reason has been a mystery to me and my doctors."

"My doctors expect it will take me until late this spring to regain (weight,)" he said, then added, "I will be the first one to step up and tell our board of directors if I can no longer continue to fulfill my duties as Apple's CEO."
