Reformatting DWLZ ~ July 23, 2016

About time, right?  I’ve reformatted most of DWLZ, starting with the main pages.  I have more to do but it’s coming along nicely.  The pages are cleaner and faster to load.  Next I will be working on updating more of the restaurants to Smart Points, while keeping the Points+ and Winning Point values.

onlinefriendshipsblinkieI love DWLZ and all my friends I’ve made over the 18 years I’ve had my website.  So many awesome people and awesome times.  So many great memories.  I’m looking forward to making many more.

As for my Journey back to goal, it’s been a long and winding road.  I’m hoping the road will straighten back up and I can start getting back to goal.  I know I can do it and with everyones love and support, how can I fail.

Thank you for always standing by my side as I travel the many roads of my life.

    Your site is awesome! Thank you for keeping the old points values on the restaurant items (which I’m still using). I use your restaurant list all the time now that I’m starting back on the program. Good luck with your progress!

      Thank you Gina. I will always keep the old points on the site. They are the ones I use too. Good luck on your Journey also. Take care.

    Hi, Dotti – the updated DWLZ looks great! Thank you for all you do to keep DWLZ up and running (and Al too 😉 ). I wish you continued progress regarding your foot and leg/hip pain. Hang in there – whenever you are blue please remember I think of you often and I’m cheering you on toward your health goals. I’ve been on Dotti’s “only” for 7 years LOL everyone is so nice they’re like family/friends combined. You and Al started a wonderful online community, I’m grateful every day for it. *Take care of yourself.*
