  1. A short description of the scales. Cronbach’s alpha (CA) was used as the reliability measure at baseline (BL) and on follow-up (FU) among girls (n = 78) and boys (n = 88). Means and standard deviations (SD) of the OSIQ-R scores are shown among girls with excess (n = 38) and normal weight (n = 40) and among boys with excess (n = 42) and normal weight (n = 46).
