DALLAS -- We're almost a quarter of the way through 2016. How are those New Year's resolutions going?

Well, you might think twice before ditching that diet after hearing this. According to a new study, DFW is the 15th Fattest Metro in America.

Hey, at least we're not #1, right?

"I hope, if anything, it would be a big eyeopener, and maybe people would take some time to look at themselves look at their habits, look at their lifestyle," said personal trainer Evan Duncan with Tough Fitness.

Duncan has seen his fair share of folks getting burned out on fitness and falling into bad habits.

"I think people get burned out from the same old thing over and over again," he said. "And not having a good leader behind them to keep them on track and focused."

Courtney Hazlett knows what it's like to feel the workout burnout.

"You have a lot of good intentions when you start. You want to eat right, you want to get healthy, you want to get in shape, and you almost dive in too quickly too fast," Hazlett told NewsFix.  "I definitely think it's a struggle, but being held accountable in the gym helps. I know on the days I might not eat as healthy, the next day in the gym is that much harder."

Duncan has this piece of advice...

"I like to tell people to keep your eyes on the prize. Focus on where we're going. Don't worry about where you're at now or where you came from."

Hazlett says once she got into a routine and was held accountable, she started seeing results, "In six months, I've dropped, I'd say about three pant sizes. But it's not just about numbers -- it's confidence level too!"

So DFW, we might have to tighten our belts because this is one like we  DON'T want to be on top of again.
