Children ages 9-14 have been participating in the Kid STRIDE study which is a family-based behavioral intervention for obese children. Participants will be divided into 3 groups according to their change in weight: 1) children who lost greater than 5% of body weight; 2) children who lost less than 5% of body weight or gained less than 1% of body weight; 3) children who gained greater than 1% of body weight. We will invite five families from each of groups 1 and 3 to participate in an open-ended interview.
