Dotti's Weight Loss Zone

ImageIt is a lifestyle, not a diet. That would be the motto of Dotti's Weight Loss Zone, a site created around one woman's struggle to lose those extra pounds. Founded in 1998, Dotti's Weight Loss Zone was started by her husband to keep her motivated while she worked to lose weight.

As of October 1998, she had shed more than 100 pounds. However, like many people who battle the bulge, Dotti's yo yo'd over the years and gained backed the weight to reach 215 pounds. Yet she refuses to let her own problems prevent her from helping other people with their weight-loss agendas.

She continues to document her weight loss journey, as does husband Al. Using Weight Watchers, Dotti has succeeded in taking off the weight and quitting smoking. However, her mission went beyond losing those extra pounds. She is trying to help others take off the weight through Dotti's Weight Loss Zone.

Chock full of information including recipes, menus and a daily checklist and journal, there are many resources for anybody looking to lose weight. Countless articles offer up tried-and-true diet tips to help in the pounds-shedding process.


ImageWhether it is how much water to drink every day or 12 great reasons to work out, Dotti's Weight Loss Zone covers most of the bases. There is even a store to buy Dotti's Weight Loss Zone cookbooks.

Beyond the traditional diet tools, Dotti's Weight Loss Zone places a huge focus on community. Community is one of the biggest aspects of Dotti's Weight Loss Zone. There are forums where other dieters congregate to discuss their trials and tribulations.

The site also features individuals who share their success stories, complete with before and after photos. There is even an avenue where dieters can go to find a weight loss buddy.

Although Dotti's Weight Loss Zone doesn't offer a diet per say, it does give plenty of resources for the person who's desperate to shed those extra pounds.
