Here goes. Am a 60 year old mother and grandmother who should have more sense by now and am STILL struggling with my weight - on/off, on/off all my life - not a few pounds/kilos but STONES. Have got to a stage where I am having difficulty walking - recognise that I am in serios trouble and after receiving phone calls from my two sons asking me what I am going to do about myself am once AGAIN watching myself and have once AGAIN joined Weight Watchers. Tomorrow will be 2 weeks that I started and will be looking forward to my weigh in. Lost the first week.

I don't know about the approval process but you can do your own recipes and add then to your food diary easily. Would love to see some of those Turkish recipes.
