Guinn, Bobby; Semper, Tom; Jorgensen, Layne
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v19 n4 p517-26 Nov 1997
A study of 254 Mexican American eighth-grade girls in south Texas found that girls' self-esteem was positively related to body image and exercise involvement and negatively related to body fatness. This population displayed somewhat distorted body image, which was the strongest predictor of self-esteem. Contains 43 references. (SV)
