Objectives: To study the contribution of session attendance to weight loss and maintenance and to identify correlates of attendance. Methods: Data on 260 overweight participants in weight-loss interventions were analyzed using multiple and logistic regression with weight loss and session attendance as outcome variables. Results: Session attendance was associated with weight loss (p<.001) and maintenance (p<.001). Predictors of attendance were ethnicity (p=.05) and Education (p=.02) at 9 months and employment (p=.02) and self-efficacy (p=.04) at closeout. Conclusions: Session attendance contributes to weight loss and maintenance.
