Abstract: The central focus of this thesis was to examine the role of self-regulation principles in predicting and changing self-care behaviors of diabetes type 2 patients. Overall, the results in this thesis indicate that self-regulation cognitions and skills might be important intervention targets of future diabetes (weight) interventions. The studies in this thesis indicated that self-regulatory cognitions were related to diabetes behavior (weight regulating behavior), HbA1c and drop-out from a diabetes weight loss intervention.
