a Data are expressed as N, mean, and (SD) unless otherwise indicated. Weight outcomes are for participants in the Weight-Wise Program, in Wilmington, NC during the period of September 2005 to February 2007.

b The weight loss and regain values will not match the differences obtained using the weights in this table due to different Ns at different measurement times.

c Weight change is based on the weight loss intervention start weight.
