Getting fit--Wii Fit

So on Friday my husband comes home from work with a Wii Fit. This wasn't surprising as he had been talking about it for awhile but I didn't think he would pull the trigger. But he found one and now we are the proud owners of one of the most sought after "toys" in the country.

We have had it for a few days and I must admit I like it. I am not sure how much we will use it but there is no excuse now. If I continue to out score the family the use will go down as we are way to competitive as a family. I was not ready for the harsh reality when I stepped on the first time. I am not a large woman but I am not small. I have been called "solid" my entire life. The new toy didn't mince words, I am "over-weight" and awfully close to being "obese". These are not words I would have used to describe myself and I am not getting wrapped up in this but YIKES!!!


  1. we really like the Wii Fit. I am learning to use it. I know that label it like to give. My goal is to see the weight go down. My daughter seems to be in competition with me. At first I did not like it. But now i am liking it. because it make me want to continue until I beat her,lol. I love tennis and Golf and Bowling. also. have fun. visit my Http:// site. I Blog about the Wii. Have a nice time.

  2. You should check out Julie's site, I met her in a commenters club on MBC, she has lost at least 60 lbs on the wii fit. I'm hoping to get one for Mother's Day so I can join in on the fun (and lose weight too!).

    I'm signing up to follow you from the MBC Under 100 Club.

  3. i love our wii fit. we bought it around Christmas. the first time we played it was for over 6 hours. we bowled, boxed, and played tennis so much our arms were sore the next morning!
