Summary: This game is super cute an if I had an original DS... I'd love it BUT I don't have one so I am having trouble with the pedometer.... Fortunately my brother has one but it needs a new charger... Why am I saying this? If you want this I think I would recommend it it's not that hard at all.... The step counting is so great! I'm still trying to figure out the food thing... I'm sure it'll get better. BUT! YOU NEED THAT NORMAL DS!
Summary: I've had this for a week so far and love it. I'm a bit of a tech geek -so I enjoy using it and it motivates me to keep "playing the game." This is definitely NOT for someone who already works out and is very knowledgeable about diet/exercise/nutrition. For someone like me, however, it has already made a huge difference. I am walking every day and keeping a close eye on what I eat.
Summary: I agree with the other person's review. This game is fun and cute, but I feel that it would be more beneficial to someone who is clinically overweight. If you are in the healthy weight range, this game might not be for you. The pedometer that comes with the game is rather large and difficult to conceal. It also makes a little bit of noise. The game relies on the use of the pedometer.
Summary: I just started using My Weight Loss Coach a couple of days ago. It has started me walking and eating better, but I have noticed several flaws: - First off, the clip that attaches to the pedometer was a little hard to get on and the instructions were not that clear. With a little muscle work, however, it did finally snap on. - Secondly, the pedometer is large (far larger than the Weight Watchers one I already have).
Summary: This game is VERY good for people trying to get healthier, especially if you're currently sedentary. The first thing it asked me to do was drink a glass of water. The little stick figure was hilarious to watch until I drank the water. The second activity it had me do was walk 500 steps using the pedometer that comes with the game. It took 5 minutes. The first food related task I had to do was put the salt shaker into the cabinet. Good ideas . . .
Summary: I bought this and wondered if this was going to be easy to use. Diets are not easy and lets face it...unless exercising is your hobby...exercising pretty much $uck$!! LOL I had to get something that motivated me! I am pretty much 100 lbs. overweight, short, I'm 38 years old and this "game" is perfect for those that are overweight. And it IS easy to USE!
Summary: The concept is excellent, the game is fun, challenging and interesting Con: the pedometer, the Nintendo 3ds has no port to fit the pedometer. So I'm stuck trying to figure out how to use it Overall, outside of the flaw of pedometer not being able to fit into a DS port, great idea, and tool. Update, the pedometer officially is a piece of junk. I walk from my house to the subway and my Nintendo 3ds says 1099 steps. The pedometer read 84 steps. What I flew to the subway.
Summary: I like the challenges and such and the ease of use but, I have a big problem with the pedometer resetting. The last several times I have used it the pedometer will reset itself several times in a day, this makes it useless.
Summary: I bought this game for the obvious reason of losing weight (just 20 lbs.) but I noticed something that wasn't to my liking. This game gives you lots of options more for someone who goes out a lot. It probably won't work as well for someone who works at home all day. I'm positive, though, that someone can lose weight with this game. I haven't lost the 20 lbs. but that's my own fault. I might give this game another chance and update my review if I see any improvement.
