Abstract

This study identified facilitators and obstacles to maintenance of weight loss following a very-lowcalorie-diet and behavior modification program, A survey was mailed to a random sample of 178 program completers and received a 61% response rate; the most frequent follow-up period was more than 2 years. Twenty-nine percent reported weighing the same (within 10 Ibs) or less than the end of their participation in the treatment program (maintainers), while 71% reported their present weight was a mean of 65% higher than their initial weight loss (regainers),Maintainers were significantly more likely to report engaging in regular aerobic exercise, attending a maintenance support group, and confidence in their ability to manage their weight in the future, while regainers were more likely to report stress and motivation as frequent weight management obstacles, Respondents consistently identified the need for low/no cost ongoing support, Maintainers and selapsers reported similar challenges in managing their weight, yet with different results, suggesting the need to identify subgroups for which different posttreatment support options could be applied.
