dc.description.abstract Introduction. Overweight and perception of being overweight, may lead adolescent to lose weight. The aim of the present study was to investigate overweight adolescents’ self-perceived weight, body dissatisfaction, and weight control behaviour during 1994–2010 in Finland. Methods. The country-representative, cross-sectional data of 15-year olds were obtained from the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study, conducted in 1994 ( 𝑁 = 1 1 9 4 ; males: 48%), 1998 ( 𝑁 = 1 5 4 5 ; 49%), 2002 ( 𝑁 = 1 7 4 5 ; 50%), 2006 ( 𝑁 = 1 6 7 0 ; 47%), and 2010 ( 𝑁 = 2 0 8 2 ; 48%). Results. The majority of overweight boys (62–69%) and girls (89–100%) assessed themselves as too fat, and their body image was lower than in nonoverweight adolescents. The highest prevalence of current weight controlling was found in 2006 in males (18%) and in 2010 in females (39%). Conclusion. The phenomena were current and gender differences notable, but there was no statistically significant difference in overweight adolescents’ self-perceived weight, body dissatisfaction, or weight control behaviour between survey years. fi
