Summary: Parents need to know that My Weight Loss Coach isn't a video game, but rather an advice application that motivates you to live a healthier lifestyle. It comes with a pedometer that connects to the DS so that the application can keep track of your daily steps. For weight loss, the program stresses small, sustainable steps like drinking more water and eating more fruit.
Excerpt: The helpful coach in My Weight Loss Coach is represented by a squiggly stick figure with a penchant for giggling. I doubt he (or she, if you wish) has a mean bone in his body. I was supposed to check back everyday to let him know how I was progressing. After a particularly exhausting day, the coach asked me if I completed any of the daily goals that we set the night before.
