I Am Tossing My Hat Into the Wii Fit Ring


I had to see what all the fuss was about, didn't I? OK, maybe I didn't, but I kind of wanted to after reading some very inspiring Wii Fit weight loss stories! I have been searching for some time and finally found one at our local video game store (the big chain store has been out since before Christmas)! I am excited and scared all at the same time! Excited to try it out and make it work for me and scared because I hate that muscle ache that comes with beginning a new workout!

Today is day three and I am absolutely having a great time with this!! My Knight in Shining Armor says it will go the way of the treadmill but I don't think so!! This is actually fun and just like playing a video game! Just so you know my Wii Fit age is 44 which is only 4 years older than me so that isn't bad! 20 lbs is my first goal (in 2 months) and my overall goal is 60 lbs! I can do it with this and eating better, which I have already started! I have lost 1.5 lbs, go me!!

Are you using the Wii Fit to get in shape? If so, is it working for you? What other diet changes have you made to help with the weight loss (is any)? Let me hear from you so I know what things work and what doesn't! Also, have you purchased any of the other "games" designed for the Wii Fit, if so, what and do you recommend it?

I am just hoping the little diva will leave me alone long enough to get some really effective workouts in! Ha! Yeah right, maybe I could strap her to my back for some extra weight! LOL! No, actually she imitates my son and I while we are doing yoga! It is the cutest thing! I will try to get some pics!

My wishlist would include another Wii Fit Balance Board so my son and I can do this together!! That would rock!!

The only thing that I do not like with the Wii fit is the negative comments it makes if you don't visit often enough or if you gain weight. Negativity is not a motivator for me and I found I didn't go back after a set-back. I would like to see a choice for "positive motivation" and "Negative motivation". Good luck--keep us posted!

I've been doing it for the majority of 13 days and it's kicking my ass. My weight is fluctuating a ton but that's because I can't get my eating in line. I will tell you that my muscles are burning! I know I'm getting better because I can do more reps and hold poses longer.

My only complaint is that my hubby is just a couple pounds too heavy to use it himself. It's a bit irritating to pay that much for something we can't both use.

I've been looking for a Wii Fit for months. They are very hard to find. They looks like so much fun I'm glad to hear that they are.

I've been using the Wii Fit for a couple of months. I'm not doing so good however. It leaves me pretty sore, but I haven't lost any weight yet...in fact at times it says I've gained. AUGH! The thing drives me nuts...but I am addicted. I love getting my 'play' time in. ;)
