Odds ratios for poor physical HRQOL by weight category for the total sample. Poor physical HRQOL is defined as a physical health composite score of <42 in the RAND-36 Health Survey. Weight categories are defined in terms of body mass index (kg/m2): normal weight 18.5–24.9, overweight 25–29.9, class 1 obesity 30–34.9, class 2 obesity 35–39.9, class 3 obesity ≥40. Model 1 adjusted for age. Model 2 adjusted for sociodemographic data and smoking behavior (age, marital status, education, income, employment, insurance, and current smoking). Model 3 adjusted for model 2 variables plus emotional/psychological factors (having a history of mood disorder, having good social support, being active in groups, having a strong religious affiliation, having a pet, living alone, having a caregiver role, and experiencing ≥5 negative life events). Model 4 adjusted for Model 3 plus physical health variables (comorbidities, pain, and self-rated health status). HRQOL, health-related quality of life.
