Your site content is certainly worthy, there's no doubt about that,
but I have a couple of theories.

First, it may be that they're already saturated with weight loss
sites and they don't want to list any new ones. If you monitor the
main weight loss categories, you'll be able to tell whether new
sites are being added to these categories or not.

Second, they may well have blacklisted as a "free"
domain. A domain name is only $35 a year, you really should have
one considering how much work you've put into your site. It's not
just Yahoo it'll help you with either. Just think, if you do a
really good job promoting your site on the robot-driven engines,
what happens later on when you want to get a domain name? You'll
have to start again from scratch because all your listings will
become invalid.
