Abstract

Objective Examine the relationship between 1- and 2-month weight loss (WL) and 8-year WL among participants enrolled in a lifestyle intervention. Methods 2,290 Look AHEAD participants (BMI: 35.65-±-5.93 kg/m2) with type 2 diabetes received an intensive behavioral WL intervention. Results 1- and 2-month WL were associated with yearly WL through Year 8 (P's-4% had 1.62 (95% CI: 1.32, 1.98) and 2.79 (95% CI: 2.21, 3.52) times higher odds of achieving ≥5% WL at Year 4 and 1.28 (95% CI: 1.05,1.58) and 1.77 (95% CI: 1.40, 2.24) times higher odds of achieving ≥5% WL at Year 8, compared to those losing 6% WL resulted in the greatest odds of achieving ≥5% WL at Year 4 (OR-=-3.85; CI: 3.05, 4.88) and Year 8 (OR-=-2.28; CI: 1.81, 2.89), compared to those losing
