Millions of Americans try to lose weight and blame themselves when they don't.
Experts say it's not all about willpower but about finding the right support to reach those goals.
Jenni Struck, Director of Operations at Avera McKennan Fitness Center, said nutrition, exercise and stress management are the key to a healthy lifestyle.
"Its important throughout out the program for us to keep them motivated because they have a good times and then they'll have a couple weeks where they need professionals to keep them on track," she said.
Their goal is to not only teach people how to eat and of course to motivate them to exercise more but to help them change their whole outlook on what a healthy lifestyle is.
