A Temple University study had overweight women create a computer model that looked like themselves.

The women watched videos of their models walking on a treadmill or selecting the right portion sizes.

After 4 weeks, the women lost three and a half pounds.

Researchers believe if a person can visualize themselves in healthy activities they might learn those behaviors.
