Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Veterans at the Fargo VA Health Care System have lost nine tons in the 10 years since the clinic began using the national MOVE! program.

This afternoon, coordinators manned an information booth marking the anniversary.

MOVE! provides free services emphasizing healthy nutrition, exercise and behavior changes.

New this year, the VA is rolling out a mobile app. It helps participants set, track and achieve weight loss goals.

Nancy Gustafson/MOVE! Program Coordinator, "They can feel better, have a better quality of life. We want them to feel good about themselves, so we just work with veterans where they are and help them to do that."

Anyone with an iPhone can use the app to track weight loss. You can find more information by clicking here.
