I'm sold on the project after having spent half of my Christmas holiday jumping up, down and sweating on my nieces new Dance Dance Revolution game. I was skeptical about the project when I heard it announced last year -- but the game is addicting. Our entire family had a great time using the game. We even got my 82 year old dad up on the game -- I only wish they would have had some big band swing tunes for him.
Statistics in West Virginia:
West Virginia is consistently among the top three states for obesity, with about a third of its residents considered obese and even more overweight, according to the state Bureau of Public Health. Nearly 46 percent of 31,000 fifth-graders screened in a coronary artery risk project from 1999-2005 were considered overweight or obese, according to the Institute of Medicine guidelines.
I'm just waiting for the litigation fallout from the project.
