Abstract
Objectives:
This qualitative study explored the failed weight-loss experiences of college students with obesity and overweight.

Methods:
The study adopted a phenomenological research design, and nine female students participated in the study. Data were collected through in-depth interviews from November 2018 to February 2019 and analyzed using Colaizzi’s method.

Results:
Three theme clusters that described the failed weight-loss experience of college students with obesity and overweight were extracted. These clusters are “Reduced willingness and motivation to control own weight.” “Lower self-esteem as a result of recovered body weight, and their sense of failure increased.” and “Determining again to go on a diet to improve their self-esteem.”

Conclusion:
The study revealed that the participants self-esteem decreased because of their repeated failures in controlling their weight, and they became more helpless as a result of the disappointment they experienced. However, despite the participants’ inability to control their weight, they understood the need for persistence and the role of personal habits in everyday life.
