Approximately 40 participants in the YWCA Diabetes Wellness and Prevention (DWP) program and their families were in attendance at March’s monthly dinner lecture. Jen Vaughn, a registered dietitian from Mission Health Systems, was the evening’s guest speaker. The topic was “Emotional Eating: What is it, Why We Do It, and How to Overcome It.” Everyone enjoyed the presentation and left with a few ideas for what to do if they found themselves mindlessly eating. For example: take a walk or drink a glass of water or enjoy a nice cup of tea.
DWP helps people lower their blood sugar levels, lose weight, improve flexibility, increase energy, and boost self-confidence. By working out together and supporting each other, participants create an environment of acceptance and friendship – and make big changes in their lives.
