I'm Flo and started with Sparks this week. I finally dug out my WII and had my Grandson set it up. I started doing some low impact exercised today and felt the burn. I plan to slowly work up my stamina. Fri, 17 Jan 2014 17:27:59 EST I'm new here :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x21455x56315204 Good morning! I'm Sharon. I just joined Sparkpeople on 1-4. I'm 53 and have gained 60+ lbs over the last 8 years. I've had my Wii fit for 4 years and really didn't use it. Between the sparkpeople website and my Wii fit I've been using it daily, mostly yoga to start out because I have back issues and then I add some free run. I want to increase my activity and saw this page and thought it would be a fun way to keep me on track! So happy to be in this team! Thanks and have a great weekend!! Sat, 11 Jan 2014 09:48:58 EST back with a new name, new grit. http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x21455x56262786 I have been here before, don't remember my other name. Can't believe Shenadee is still going strong. I did enjoy the challenges - one was personal bests, and there was an olympics or something - It was fun what ever it was. Anyway, I have been gaining weight, and trying weight watchers, and drinking wine, and am now 10 lbs over the last time. <BR> This time I am really serious........ Thanks for this team, and Shenadee.

I used to have a regular wii and balance board/wii fit plus. I had not used the board in ages though and my husband traded it in at gamestop a couple of years ago. I just saw today though that they are coming out with a wii fit U edition that works with the old board. The best part was that they came out with a monitor to wear through out the day that syncs with the wii U. It tracks steps, distance, altitude and calories plus it has a screen ...

I enjoy it so much! My piggy just recently turned Rose (I guess). It's so funny, I get so upset cause it seems like it The Tightrope Advanced, the balance bubble in the dark and I get so screwed up on the Boxing -- dodge right, dodge left. Are there other cd's with other fun games to do for exercise with the Wii?

Sun, 22 Jan 2012 01:02:00 EST Hey http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x21455x46167503 Hi everyone. I'm Amy, and I am new. I just bought a Wii Fit Plus and used it for the first time today. I really enjoyed it, and I can see how a person gets their exercise on it! My favorite game so far is the bubble river one, and the golf one I can't seem to get the hang of yet, I couldn't even hit the golf ball, lol. Anyway though, I suppose it will get easier as I keep using it. I just wanted to say hi and I look forward to meeting new people on here. <BR> <BR> <em>41</em> Sat, 21 Jan 2012 23:55:31 EST Wii won't work! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x21455x46126663 My Wii suddenly stopped working.
