Three theories are predominantly used to assess romantic partner support of individuals’ weight loss: self-determination, social control, and confirmation. Because all theories highlight partner strategies as a primary theoretical element and involve strategies that appear to overlap, the current study sought to create an overarching measure of partner support strategies. Study 1 assessed the items from scales across all three theories, and three overarching strategies emerged: encouragement (e....

ABSTRACTBecause romantic partners can be a strong influence on individuals’ weight loss efforts and progress, the current study assessed the relational context of weight loss—dynamics within the relationship that pertain to weight loss. Three relational characteristics were examined: whether the weight loss was a team effort, how much partners had opposing approaches to weight loss, and individuals’ difficulty in balancing their weight loss goals within their relationship goals. Findings showed ...

Through a lens of confirmation theory, this study examined how parental confirmation acceptance and challenge was related to emerging adults’ body image, and how these associations were mediated by social competence and self-concept. This study also examined whether the hypothesized links differed by parental and child sex. Male and female college students (N = 447) completed an online questionnaire. A multiple-group analysis generally supported the proposed mediation model, providing a somewhat...
For individuals losing weight who are cohabiting with their romantic partners, weight loss is pursued within a relational context. To better understand the role of romantic partners, 44 individuals from a Southwestern city in the U.S. who were actively trying to lose weight were interviewed about the current and desired role of their partner in their weight loss. Responses were transcribed and qualitatively analyzed. Themes specifically pertinent to the romantic relationship that facilitated or ...

It is well known that significant others (particularly romantic partners) can influence people’s weight management efforts. However, what constitutes effective support—and from which type of individual (e.g., romantic partner, family member, friend)—is unclear. Thus, framed by confirmation theory, we assessed the effectiveness and types of communication of a weight-loss “buddy” through reports of 704 individuals enrolled in a 15-week synchronous online weight-loss program. Roughly 54% of partici...

This study explored how fluctuations in satisfaction and perceived partner commitment were associated with stability measures (e.g., commitment, perceived stability, relational uncertainty, turbulence) in both on-again/off-again and noncyclical relationships. Participants completed an initial survey, 8 weekly surveys, and a final survey. Results suggest fluctuation in perceived partner commitment across the weekly surveys was associated with all measures of stability when moderated by relationsh...

ABSTRACTThe misuse of prescription stimulants among college undergraduates is a prevalent and dangerous problem on college campuses across the United States. Guided by a memorable messages framework, this research sought to examine the messages that college students recall about the misuse of prescription stimulants and examine how those messages are associated with students’ intention to use stimulants. We analyzed the recalled memorable messages of 129 undergraduates. Three predominant themes ...
