This reminds me of Love Revolution on the Nintendo DS. That game left a bad taste in my mouth, because of the fact that the main character only chooses to lose weight to impress boys who are mean to her and body shame her. I mean, if you want to lose weight, fine, do it for yourself, to have better health, more confidence, be able to buy cute clothes, and have more energy, etc… There’s nothing wrong with wanting to lose weight – hell, I’d like to lose some weight myself.

The problem is that, the main character ONLY wants to lose weight to impress some ass hole guys who treat her like she’s less than human just because she’s overweight. And only after she begins to lose weight are they able to love her.

What kind of message is that sending to young girls???

With that out of the way, it does seem that this particlar game here, does have some fitness tracking activities and other things to help you, the player, get more fit. Which is a lot better than just a story about an overweight girl desperate to impress men who view her as less than human like in Love Revo lol.
