I have this game and am in Europe - I think it's the same game, but it's called My Health Coach - a much more accurate name as it's mainly about healthy habits rather than losing weight!
May be an obvious question.... but when you enter the amount of time you spend doing certain activities, do you do this *in addition* to entering the pedometer data? I mean, walking/shopping etc is listed as one of the categories, but hasn't the game already recorded my steps for the day? I've been recording both, but can't help but feel it doesn't sound accurate to do this!
Also, I use the pedometer at the gym so when I'm on the bike it registers each rotation as a step! Is it fair to wear it then?
The pedometer records the steps you take. That is, the work you're doing with your lower body. Those light exercises are assuming that you are making use of your upper body - you're pumping your arms more when you are actually walking for exercise or you're lifting things and carrying shopping bags when shopping. So definitely record it in addition to the pedometer.
