Dotti

I created Dotti's Weight Loss Zone on Sept 20, 1998. We are still up and running 20+ years later. I created DWLZ to help others on their Journey to a healthier self. I wanted to create a space where others on this Journey could support each other and share their Journey. I wanted to include all the info I could to help make the Journey easier on everyone on this Journey. I hope that I've accomplished that.

    Sept 10, 2018 ~ Loving WW Freestyle!

    As you can see from my title I’ve rejoined Weight Watchers for the 3rd (or 4th) time.  I can tell you this, Freestyle is the very best Weight Watcher program I’ve been on.  It’s easy to track with the smartphone App, easy to eat healthy, easy to get away from high sugar foods (more Smart Points), and most of all helps you change your lifestyle to a healthy lifestyle. I started my new Freestyle Journey on Friday, April 20, 2018.  It was the best decision I’ve made in a long time.  This past January a good friend of mine, Joan, came to visit me.  We hadn’t seen each other for years but it was like we just saw each other yesterday.  She got me motivated to start tracking my food.  I lost about 10 lbs from January 2018 to April 20th when I started WW Freestyle.  I was up to 262 lbs in January.  I started WW Freestyle at 252.8.  Today, September 10, 2018, I weigh 216.2 lbs with a total loss of 36.6 lbs on WW Freestyle. I have lowered my Omaprazole in half and am hoping to get off of it completely.  I’ve been on 40 mg since…

    Time is Flying By

    Why is it that the older you get the faster time seems to go by?  Here it is March 14th already! I’ve been busy adding (82) new restaurants and updating (75) others in the last couple of weeks.  All the restaurants were given Smart Points, along with the already Points+ and Original Points.  As of 3/12/18 I have 779 Restaurants, 406 with Smart Points added. Every day I get up wanting to keep on tracking, keep on drinking water instead of Diet Dr. Pepper, keep on getting some exercise, and most of all, keep on keeping on.  I’m not going to give up even though I’m struggling to keep doing what needs to be done to lose this weight and become a healthier person.  I will not give up. Christmas was the last time I posted so I need to do a bit of updating. We had the grandkids for an overnight on Valentine’s Day while the parents had a nice getaway.  We had so much fun.  We ordered pizza and gigantic chocolate chip cookie from Pizza Hut and the next morning I made some heart-shaped pancakes.  Grandpa took Emily to school the next morning.  Grandma and Grandpa got to…

    Merry Christmas From Our House to Yours ~ 2017

    Can you believe it is near the end of 2017?  It seems the older I get the faster time goes.  It’s been a busy last 6 months since I last posted.  Note to self:  I must get better at posting more often. The Grandkids have grown so much over this year, as you can see from the above photos.  Our oldest grandson, Kai, who is 19 years old, has grown into a fine young man.  I’m sure the girls are swooning all over him.  We don’t get to see him much as he lives in Japan with his Dad.  We miss them a lot. Emily and Jake had a lot of fun this past summer.  Emily found a huge slug in the backyard.  She was so enthralled with it.  It certainly was the biggest slug I ever saw! We both hate bugs but we also give exception to ladybugs.  Emily enjoyed them all summer long.  Emily also learned how to climb a tree in the fall and is up there every chance she gets.  Jake joined her in the tree with a little help from his Dad and Grandpa Al and boy, was it hard to get him down.  He…
