I received the following email, if you could pop over and take her 5 question survey it will help her
I’m a clinical psychology doctoral student interested in learning more about the experiences of those whose partners (at least sometimes) interfere with their weight loss efforts. I’m writing to ask for your help recruiting the last few volunteers I need to finish my PhD.
I think many of your readers have a ton of precious insight on this topic and I’d like to ask them to share. Many people who have taken the survey have written to thank me for bringing this topic to light. My long term aim is to develop a couples-level intervention to address partner undermining directly through building acceptance and deeper understanding.
You might have seen these posts on my research study by obesity physician, Dr. Yoni Freedhoff, http://www.weightymatters.ca/ 2012/01/help-with-research- plea-spousal.html, or the Survival Guide for Mom’s post: http://guideformoms.blogspot.com/2012/03/is-your-partner-sabotaging-your-weight.html
Would you please post about my study on your blog? All the information about the anonymous, online survey is hosted here at my university’s website: http://surveys.clarku.edu/Survey.aspx?s=aab073a40aa64a55a2ad7a0f72c7ea0a
This survey is designed for those who can answer yes to the following questions:
Have you been participating in a weight loss program for the last 5 consecutive weeks?
Have you been in a committed, cohabitating relationship for the last two years?
Do you ever feel like your current partner/spouse gets in the way of your weight loss?
Besides helping to advance scientific inquiry on this topic, each participant who completes the survey may also select to have $1 donated by the researcher to the participant’s choice of 1 of these 5 charities: Playworks, The Carter Center , Teach for America, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, or MAP International. Additionally, participants may opt to enter a drawing for 1 of 10 gift cards (one $100 card and nine $25 cards).
Please contact me with any questions!
