Virtual Weight Model

THE DESCRIPTION:
“Virtual Weight Loss Model” lets you track your weight loss with a basic model that illustrates your progress.

THE GOOD:
On paper, this sounds like a great idea. You can enter your weight every day to keep tabs on your weight loss progress. You can compare today’s weight with your heaviest and goal weight in pounds or kilograms. The model, which you can customize with hair, skin, and clothing color, changes its appearance based on the weight numbers you enter.

THE BAD:
The weight loss model looks more like a cartoon than a human being – and it’s not even a good cartoon. The way weight loss changes the model’s appearance has no correspondence to the way weight loss really works on the human form. In addition to having thoroughly unrealistic graphics, it lacks any real weight loss information. You won’t find any diet or fitness information here.

THE BOTTOM LINE:
Visual demonstration of weight change is an appealing notion. If the model in this case had any relevance to the human body, it might be useful. The weight log is the only functional utility in this application, and you can find much better alternatives for that. Check out “LoseIt!” for a comprehensive weight loss tool or “True Weight Lite” to access a better log scheme.
