My first Wii Fit experience

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

So my husband and I had decided we were going to start walking again in the evenings since the new time change we have an extra hour of day light left by the time my husband gets home around 7pm, so we were to start yesterday but it was pouring down rain...blah.

So I get out the Wii Fit game I barrowed from my aunt only to find out she didn't give me the balance board thingy I needed, so I have to drive 10 miles down the road to buy a used one for $30.00 because I am determined to find something I can use that doesn't cause me pain that I can burn some calories off.

So I get back home and it's after 8pm and I wanted to play it so bad, I should've been cooking dinner (my poor family was starving) so get it to working and I was having so much fun I played for 34 minutes without even noticing. That was awesome!! I only burned around 147 calories but it was fun. I liked the hula hoop and running games! I will be addicted to it now, ha-ha especially once I get it all figured out!

But anyways, one of the cool things I liked about the balance board thing I had to go buy, it works as a scale to, so I was able to see how much I REALLY weigh and it turns out my old weight watchers scale is 5 pounds off...so I'm not really 219 lbs I am really 224 lbs.AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! That's horrible!! So bye bye old cute weight watchers scale! emoticon

So I have adjusted my numbers here on Sparkpeople and it just gives me more of an incentive to use that game every evening while I wait for my husband to get home and then I can go walking with himíKthe more the better!!!

    emoticon so glad to hear that you tried out the Wii Fit and that you enjoyed it.I have never tried it myself, but only heard good things. Don't focus too much on the numbers, I know we all get obsessed with the number on the scale and some of us also get obsessed with the number of calories we burn during a workout, but sometimes all it counts is that we enjoy doing a certain activity instead of forcing ourselves to do something we don't enjoy.

    I've been wanting to try the Wii Fit...it sounds fun and I have a Wii. It would definitely shake up my routine and get me involved in something that may be more fun and different than what I've been doing. Maybe the Wii Fit scale was lying and not your WW scale. I often wonder if my scale is lying to me, especially when I think I should have lost some weight and I haven't...lol
