She said I was overweight,

Saturday, November 13, 2010


That is the first time I have ever heard the Wii speak those words!

As you may know, I consider BMI to be the Bull$hit Made-up Index, so I don't regard it highly, but I'll admit it was nice not to hear,

"That's OBESE!"

    I hope you kicked that machines ass! At least you'd burn some calories from that! I have a little desk plaque that reads, "My computer beat me at chess once, but it was no match for me at kickboxing." Im-jus-sayin.

    Tee hee hee! I wonder if it will say "skinny minny" when you reach goal. Your new picture is amazing, you look so tiny. Do it Laura, you're worth it.

  My 11 year old daughter played Wii fit yesterday. She had not been on it in a long time. She had gained 18 lbs and 5 inches since her last visit. She is still in a healthy BMI (at 4'10" and 85 lbs) but it spewed out words about her gaining weight. What nonsense! She is a competitive gymnast with a ton of muscle.

However, she was upset by the machine. I spent 15 minutes trying to explain to her that BMI is not accurate for very muscular people. Who knew that the Wii could be dangerous for your psyche?

Sounds like you have a good attitude! Keep up the great work!

    HAHAHA I remember that small voice "That`s Obese". Sounded like saying "That`s Cute" - so NOT.
Overweight is a lighter psychological atribute. Harder to conquer but you`ll only look and fell better!

    I get a huge kick out of most of the personality that Nintendo built in. But I agree that snide tone on "That's oBESE!" is something I'll be glad to do without. 1.42 points to go for me. I guess the "OH!" as you step on is not to be did that to my grandson who weighs not quite as much as a feather pillow. emoticon

emoticon emoticon HOORAY for you! Whether it's accurate or not, as the others have said, it's got to feel good to achieve a healthier BMI.
