This 20-wk. study assessed relationships of mean difference scores on measures of self-efficacy and self-concept with scores for overall mood in 44 obese women who initiated a moderate exercise and nutrition information program. Simultaneous entry of changes in Physical Self-concept, Exercise Self-efficacy, and Body Areas Satisfaction scale scores into a multiple regression equation explained a significant 38% of the variance in changes in Total Mood Disturbance (R2 = .38, F3,40 = 8.09, p < .001).
