The purpose of the present study was to replicate and extend previous research by examining the moderating effects of self-esteem, physical self-concept, physical appearance comparisons, BMI, pubertal status, and cardiorespiratory fitness, on the internalization–body dissatisfaction relationship in middle school girls. Hierarchical multiple regression (HMR) was used to examine direct and moderating effects of these variables. Internalization was related directly and significantly to body dissatisfaction, as were the proposed moderators (i.e., self-esteem, physical self-concept, physical appearance comparisons, BMI, pubertal status, and cardiorespiratory fitness); however, these variables failed to significantly influence the internalization–body dissatisfaction relationship. Possible explanations for the lack of moderating effects and directions for future research are discussed.
Internalization of the “thin ideal” is defined as the extent to which women and girls adopt societally based standards of beauty and physical attractiveness (Thompson & Stice, 2001), which are communicated in two primary ways. First, the media, which portrays an ideal body that is much thinner than exists among women (Stice, 2001), communicates that there is a certain body size and shape that is representative of being feminine and beautiful, and should be pursued as a means of being valued. Second, family members and friends, who comment directly and indirectly about weight, dieting, food choices, clothing styles, and appearance, send the message that girls and women should not be satisfied with their bodies or how they look, but rather strive to diet and lose weight (Stice, 2001). Through this socialization process, and exposure to such messages, girls learn that being feminine is synonymous with a physical beauty ideal that is unattainable for most.
