    Abstract

    At the conclusion of a treatment program for obesity, the influence of age and several pretreatment measures of body proportion (weight, height, symphysis height, finger tip span, body surface area, and linearity index) on weight loss were assessed. All 42 volunteering females lost weight; however, the extent of loss was uninfluenced by the above variables. Weight loss was highly correlated with changes in measures of body surface (.77) and linearity (— .92).
