* applies for all data except for for percent body fat and for waist circumference for satisfied women and for percent body fat and for waist circumference for dissatisfied women.^{†}Data reported as number of participants with the characteristic and the percent of column total for that variable represented (%).^{‡}Data presented are means and standard deviations (SD).satisfaction is based on the difference between measured and goal weight (kg) or relative weight (kg/m ^{2}).= body mass index, a measure of relative weight is described by this formula: weight (kg)/height (m) ^{2} categories; = normal weight classified as BMI of 18.5–24.9; OW = overweight classified as BMI 25–29.9 kg/m^{2}; Obese classified as BMI ≥ 30 kg/m^{2}.^{⨀}Significance of chi-square or Fisher’s exact test for categorical and of -tests for continuous variables: comparisons of chronic disease diagnoses across BMI groups within weight satisfaction columns (satisfied or dissatisfied). (^{a}Significance at of chi-square or Fisher’s exact test for categorical variables and of -tests for continuous variables: comparison of health and chronic disease indicator between normal weight satisfied men and normal weight dissatisfied men; significant comparisons presented in bold text. ^{b}Significance at of chi-square or Fisher’s exact test for categorical variables and of -tests for continuous variables: comparison of health and chronic disease indicator between overweight satisfied men and overweight dissatisfied men; significant comparisons presented in bold text. ^{c}Significance at of chi-square or Fisher’s exact test for categorical variables and of -tests for continuous variables: comparison of health and chronic disease indicator between obese satisfied men and obese dissatisfied men; significant comparisons presented in bold text.)**Defined as the history of hypertension or resting systolic/diastolic blood pressure ≥140/90 mmHg. ^{††}Defined as any personal history of myocardial infarction or stroke; cancer, or diabetes including insulin use, or fasting blood glucose ≥7.0 mmol/L (126 mg/dL).^{‡‡}Defined as the history of hypercholesterolemia or fasting total cholesterol level ≥6.2 mmol/L (240 mg/dL).metabolic equivalent tasks achieved during treadmill test. |
