When Joanne Pekrul was diagnosed with diabetes,

…she knew she had to lose weight.

So she enrolled in a weight loss program.

“I learned that a lot of times when I thought I was hungry,

…I was really eating for emotional reasons, for comfort,” says Pekrul, who lost 17 lb during the 12-week program.

“I learned to recognize and respond appropriately to my emotions.”

If you’re bored or stressed, for instance,

…do a craft, or listen to a meditation tape instead of eating.

Pekrul uses a scale, as part of her weight loss program, to help her identify when it’s time to eat.

The scale goes from 0 (famished) to 10 (completely stuffed).

The goal is to stay between 3 and 7 at all times:

3 is reasonable hunger and a good time to eat;

7 is comfortably full but not stuffed.
