SparkPeople Wii Fitters Unite Team Messageboard We are just CRAZY about the Wii Fit Balance Board, and want to encourage each other with the daily workouts! SparkPeople Wii Fitters Unite Team Messageboard A new start, Wii fit I am not new to the wii fit, but I have not done it in a few yrs. I need to get started again, Is there anyone willing to get started with me? <em>46</em> Mon, 25 Sep 2017 01:07:24 EST New Member Hi, I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Christine and I just joined this group. I have been playing Wii Fit for a couple of years and just upgraded to the Wii Fit Plus a couple of months ago. I recently started playing Wii Fit Plus on a 5 day a week, for 30 minutes a day, two months ago to the day! I haven't noticed any real weight loss yet, however my clothes are starting to fit better so I guess that is saying something. Mon, 9 May 2016 11:32:42 EST octo challenge anyone... Hi peeps, who would like to help set up and take part in a group challenge... lets get together and build a programme Sun, 21 Sep 2014 03:45:52 EST Hi Everyone Hi there my name is Rose. I have been a part of Spark for a while now. I have not been on for about 2 years or longer because of work and all. I had no time to come on. I have recently committed myself to making sure I am fit and I stick with it. I have lost 60 pound in about a year. Not great pace but it is something that I am proud of. I love my Wii. I find that it is an easy way to get the exercise needed and it don't feel like work. I work out and before I know it I have 30 minutes in. I ... Thu, 4 Sep 2014 14:18:20 EST What Games Do You Play? And how do you track calories burned? <BR> <BR> I have several games, but most often use Exerbeat and Dance Dance Revolution 2. DDR is an epic fail with spark, because I have to be barefoot, and it doesn't even give a calorie count. It's still a great and fun workout. <BR> <BR> Exerbeat does give calorie counts, but they're much higher than what I get when I search exercises on spark. <BR> <BR> What do you like, and what do you think? Sun, 2 Mar 2014 15:50:12 EST Wii & You Tube Hi, <BR> <BR> Have you all seen that you can get you tube now on Wii?? I love it ... there are alot of workouts on youtube that you can access in addition to doing the Wii workouts <BR> <BR> Have a great day! Thu, 12 Sep 2013 07:34:57 EST Hi All I thought I would take a sec and introduce myself. I love the Wii, but thought I had to put it away when I got chronically sick. I have a syndrome that alters my balance to sometimes needing a cane, Basically, it causes vestibular disturbances (balance, inner ear). Anyway, I got lucky and got a therapist that showed me how the Wii is a life saver in this situation. I will be setting up the old girl to try to get some balance and regularity in my life. What a great group. I hope to be running ... Sun, 21 Jul 2013 01:56:43 EST Small Victories Hi, I decided to share my blog today with you. Here it is: <BR> <BR> Today I celebrate small victories. Yesterday was going to be my “rest and regroup” day. My feet hurt, I needed a break. Then I remembered my “20 minute a day” WiiFit Challenge and decided, “OK, I’ll do 20 minutes. My feet can handle 20 minutes.” <BR> WiiFit keeps track of the number of days you’ve used it, yesterday was day 792 for me. In the 3 years since I purchased it I’ve used it a lot. Every 2 weeks I set the same go... Mon, 18 Mar 2013 14:09:00 EST Shoes??? Hi everyone, <BR> I'm new to this group but not to using my WiiFit, I think I'm on day 789 or something like that. What shoes do you wear while using it? When I first started I tried barefoot but gave up because the texture of the board hurt my feet. I started wearing some ballet shoe style slippers with leather soles and they worked well until I developed a foot problem. The foot doctor told me I needed to wear athletic shoes when doing any type of exercise, even WiiFit, so that's what I... Fri, 15 Mar 2013 12:29:33 EST New Member Hi everyone! <BR> <BR> My name is Celeste. I am 27 years old. I'm currently 205 lbs which at 5'1 is not a good thing. <BR> I am an emotional eater and have been for years. When I turned 27, back in April, I had to quit karate shortly afterwards due to both of my knees going out. They've been sore ever since. <BR> <BR> I am tired of looking in the mirror and being ashamed. I have been a part of SP in the past, but I am back and I am BEYOND ready to change my life for good! <BR> <BR> Today, ...

Sun, 4 Nov 2012 14:04:12 EST Air your POSITIVES about the Wii Fit !! Love It? So we can gripe about the inadequacies of the Wii, and don't kid yourself, I've got my own laundry list, including inane and irrelevant features like "why doesn't the wii fit balance board dome in colors like purple?" etc. <BR> <BR> But supposedly if we think on the POSITIVE things, we're less likely to produce cortisol or other stress hormone monsters that make us want to eat up everything in site. Right? Didn't I read that somewhere on the Spark?? Or as some dude said - "Laughter is the ... Tue, 11 Sep 2012 20:19:32 EST Track your WiiFit Age 43 <BR> <BR> I'm 45 so it's better to be younger...but I blew the double balance test. I generally do better on these. Now there is lots of room for improvement! Tue, 14 Aug 2012 10:31:22 EST Day 800 I just did my body test and find it hard to believe 800 days have gone by since I first started using the wii. I was 69 pounds heavier. I can't remember the specific exercise, but do remember laying on my back on the floor and being unsure if I would be able to get back up. I was a turtle upside-down on his shell. <BR> Thu, 24 May 2012 09:02:03 EST Best Birthday Gift Ever! I had been wanting a Wii Fit for ages now, and my in-laws (who already had it) got one for me for my birthday this past Tuesday. I like that there are a lot of different activities that I can try, and not feel like a total fool because no one else can see me (me on a REAL skateboard? NEVER gonna happen!) <BR> <BR> Anyway I joined this group in hopes I could meet some people who could help push me to do better on it and strive for better scores as well as find how others are enjoying the Wii ... Fri, 13 Apr 2012 09:27:11 EST Air Your Grievances about Your Wii Fit Dear fellow Wii Fit group members: <BR> <BR> Please use this thread to post and discuss your complaints, disappoints, disillusion-ments and desires for the Nintendo folks to consider if/when the board and/or program is redesigned. <BR> <BR> Here is fine: the workouts are too short and cannot be programmed to run sequentially. I cannot achieve anything near an aerobic heart rate because every two minutes the whole process shuts down while I have to interact with the game. I want to just k... Tue, 3 Apr 2012 13:00:22 EST What does your personal Spark user name mean? In college I lived in a 8-man apartment my senior year, wherein four of us were named Mark. They all were sophomores, so we all had to have nicknames to keep things straight. Being the lone upperclassman, I became "boss." 61 reflects my birth year. <BR> <BR> You? Sun, 25 Mar 2012 06:16:32 EST Calculating Your Personal Wii-Fit Quotient I'm a math guy. I have been thinking about the feedback our devices give us (albiet absent the fitter-than-thou attitude), What we seem to need is a personal fitness quotient based on Wii-Fit data. I'm toying with the following: <BR> <BR> 1. Enter your Chronological Age and Subtract Your Will Fit Age. The "delta" goes in the numerator. <BR> <BR> 2. The denominator probably needs to relate to the number of routines and options not yet unlocked. This would be a measure of not having use... Mon, 19 Mar 2012 21:09:57 EST Open Letter from New Group Co-Leader Good day to all. I hope this message finds everyone motivated, engaged and having fun tipping that iceberg with your personal penguin and snagging high-points red fish out of mid-air. If you do not know about what I write, check the balance games out on your Wii Fit! <BR> <BR> I have been requested to assist with group leadership here. I did not ask for this role, nor did I decline it. As far as I am concerned, this is a democracy. If there is a groundswell of opinion now or in the fu... Sun, 18 Mar 2012 06:39:34 EST Hi, intro to team I have been using the Wii fit plus for a couple years. Lost 50 pounds, then plateaued for about a year, now want to lose the next 40. Going from 266 to 180. I was using a spreadsheet to track calories and stuff, but then found this site recently and am really impressed. <BR> New to online community, so blogs and forums are still a bit overwhelming to me. <BR> Tue, 13 Mar 2012 20:20:26 EST How can I change my goal? When I weighed in this morning and it asked me if I wanted to change my goal, I didn't know my current weight to know how much I wanted to lose. Now I can't figure out how to change my goal. Any ideas? <BR> <BR> Note: I already tried redoing today's weigh-in. My balance wasn't as good, but my weight was about a half pound better! And it was just a couple minutes later, too. Hmmmm. <BR> <BR> <em>225</em> Mon, 27 Feb 2012 04:34:47 EST Hi all Hi I'm Yvette, I have finally decided that I want to get serious about my weight loss. I would like to be around to see my grands grow! I have to be around so that I can someday enjoy retirement! Mon, 13 Feb 2012 13:22:26 EST Cannot get balance board to sync I hadn't used my balance board for a few months and now it will not work. It is no longer in sync and I cannot get it to sync. Any ideas? <BR> Sat, 4 Feb 2012 22:58:30 EST Age My Wii Fit Plus age today was 20 -23years Sun, 22 Jan 2012 17:01:23 EST Return to the WII I was going to the Gym 3 times a week, and because I was working did not spend much time on the WII except for the weekends. Now I am out of work I have decided to use the WII more often, spent 30 minutes on it this morning and it felt great and was a lot of fun. I think that will be this weeks goal to use the WII everyday. Might as well I have nothing else to do, might as well get healthy whilst looking for another job. <BR> <BR> <em>417</em> <em>418</em> <em>416</em> Sun, 15 Jan 2012 18:02:54 EST New to the team Hi I have been off and on with SP. Had to stop last year computer crashed. Finally I was able to get new one. In the mean time I started using my Wii in Sept 2011. I really started to enjoy my workout. I started out slow, 3 days a week.I got my computer in Nov 2011. By this time I was using the Wii 5 days a week. The more I worked out the more I made a challenge for myself. I had forgot about SP until a friend who I told about SP, said when are you coming back? So here I am. I have tried seve... Thu, 12 Jan 2012 00:51:43 EST New to the team I just love the WII, I try to work out 4 to 5 days a week . this is my goal for new year Wed, 11 Jan 2012 00:59:09 EST Personal Wii Challenge I'm posting this for my accountability, but also for others who are looking for some new ways to amp-up their Wii usage. <BR> <BR> Every time I get on the Wii, I will aim to do one additional game, exercise, routine, than the previous time. <BR> Ex. Let's say that yesterday, I did 10 minutes of SuperHulaHoop on the WiiFit. So, the next time I get on the Wii I will have to do at least one more game, ontop of what I did today. <BR> <BR> This can be a challenge we re-set every week, unless yo... Thu, 22 Dec 2011 17:46:10 EST Woohoo This morning, for the first time since we bought the wii fit 3 years ago, it did not call me fat. Hooray. <BR> BMI 24.8 Mass 81.3 kg <BR> <BR> Hooray! <BR> <BR> Now it is calling me "Normal". I don't think I would get as carried away as to call myself normal-- but it is nice to be in the normal BMI range. <BR> <BR> <em>30</em> Fri, 9 Dec 2011 10:29:26 EST Zumba on the wii fit Hi im thinking of treating myself after christmas is zumba on the wii any good? i have heard zumba is good for getting fit but have never tryed it i want something that is fun?

So i'm hoping by joining this team I will get some motivation to use it every day! I have fibromyalgia so exercise is quite difficult for me, but I know if I exercise more I'll feel better. Got myself in a vicious cycle of not wanting to exercise cause it hurts but not exercising makes it hurt worse. Stupid really... hu...

I am working on incorporating exercise into my life and find that Wii is a great way to do it. I am starting week 4 of a streak of doing wii yoga, advanced step and zumba daily. I have just started introducing the exercises to strengthen my core. I started at 10 minutes a day and am now up to 30-40 minutes a day. I am really excited because this is the longest str...

I live in Upstate New York, so between November-March exercising outside is nearly impossible with the amount of snow we get. I'm currently in my "healthy weight" zone, but don't look the way I would like to look. I leave for a traveling music tour every summer around mid-late June, and don't return until late August.

I am in northern Michigan and I do not do well with indoor exercise. I've been really happy with playing on the Wii. I try to do 30 minutes a day and/or about 900 cals a week. It's more than what I was doing before I got the Wii! <BR> I have lots of kids and it's been fun racing against them. A couple of my kids will do the exercises and running with me.

I'm brand new to Wii fit, and I was wondering if there's any way to set up a workout or something continuous. Especially with things like the yoga poses, they're very short and having to press 'quit' and then choose the next one feels very 'stop-start' and really gets in the way of trying to get into any rhythm.

So I work out using the biggest loser challenge wii game. I was wondering if anyone else did and I'm also wondering some things about the game. Is there any way to stop taking so many breaks during the workout? I try to keep my heart rate up but they keep taking "water breaks". Is there anyone to shut bob up? lol I love him but he keeps telling me how to do every single move and I already know how. <BR> Let me know:) <BR> -Care Wed, 17 Nov 2010 19:25:49 EST Introducing myself Hi, I just joined SP this past week. When I saw this forum, I got excited because I got a Wii last Christmas and love it! It's nice to be able to connect with others who also find their WII to be a great way to work-out. I've become a WII yoga addict and have found I'm quite competitive with myself. When I fractured my arm this past summer, I had to tone down my workouts for awhile. It was a challenge to try to do yoga with a heavy cast but I managed to do many of the exercises. Wed, 17 Nov 2010 18:12:11 EST New and Intimidated So, I won a wii fit and I've set it up and used it once. I really want to use it, but I'm completely intimidated by the options and the going in and out of individual excercises (yoga poses) seemed awkward. I'm planning to use it to "run" tonight and looking over the some of the posts I see there are a ton of possibilities, but now I'm really intimidated! <BR> <BR> I'm looking forward to checking out more tips and tricks to fully utilize my wii fit! <BR> Bobbi Mon, 8 Nov 2010 12:54:01 EST A New Beginning In the next few days, I will begin a new chapter in my career. This comes after a sad and emotional closure to the previous chapter, which was filled with achievement and success – professionally speaking, but also filled with stress, emotional imbalance and unhealthy habits. I have spent the past few weeks at home, taking stock of all of my fortune (no, I don't mean money), my mistakes and my expectations. I somehow landed on the SP website and got really excited. I had a few glasses of ... Tue, 2 Nov 2010 08:24:21 EST Balance Board Boost Hey guys, <BR> I found that my advanced steps weren't really working me as much as they used to, so I went out looking for something to put board up a little bit. <BR> <BR> In Best Buy, the balance board steps are $25, but if you go to, you can search Wii and find it on there for $11 plus $5 shipping. That $10 savings! <BR> <BR> Just thought I'd let you guys know :) Tue, 5 Oct 2010 20:33:16 EST Newbie... again Hi, I'm Kelly... Re-starting Sparkpeople after being gone for almost a year.

I like the idea of having fun with my kids and getting in a workout at the same time. I have 6 kids and I would like for 2-4 of us to be able to play at the same time. <BR> <BR> If you could tell me why you choice the games you did & what works with what, I would be most delighted! I don't want to buy a lot of things only to find they don't work together. Thanks in advance for any advice you have to give!

I'm glad to meet everyone. Wed, 22 Sep 2010 17:35:27 EST I am new to Sparkpeople and Wii fitters I was excited to see Wii fitters. I have had mine for about 2 years now and used it alot when i first got it but it has been sitting a while unfortunately but i thought this was a good way to get back using it. I have been up and down on the weight and my health is starting to suffer for it. I am tired of being the size I am and I want to do something about it. So I am excited to get started!! Mon, 20 Sep 2010 16:52:54 EST Anyone having back problems after using Wii Fit? I really went all out (for a person my age) to do as much as I could on Wii Fit. It improved my balance, but a spot that used to ache a little under the ribs on one side became more sore. The palm tree pose makes it hurt on that side. Sometimes I just do the good side. I quit trying crunches and stuff that's hard on the back. I just wonder how I can get around this problem and still get my exercise. The basic run isn't so bad.

Hey guys, <BR> <BR> Remember when there were all these articles on Sparkpeople from experts doubting the effectiveness of using the Nintendo Wii Fit? <BR> <BR> Well, thanks to all of our efforts and refusing to give up our Wii-s, they decided to join alongside and help us to make this a fitness alternative. <BR> <BR> Look - They've even given us a way to track our calories and log our exercises on this site, and have given us an article showing us how: <BR> <BR> <link>http://www.sparkpeo... Fri, 18 Jun 2010 15:35:22 EST Calorie counts Do the calorie counts on the Wii fit seem really off to you? I run for 30 minutes and it says I'm burning 171 calories. My heart rate monitor has it at more like 350 calories. Wed, 16 Jun 2010 13:41:45 EST Looking for Team Co-Leaders!

Sun, 13 Jun 2010 15:55:00 EST New to the group Hi ya'll! I'm fairly new to SparkPeople and so far I am loving it. I initially started going to the track to walk but because of my work schedule, it is difficult. BUT I am home during the day with my kiddos so I dusted off that Wii and got to it! I start my mornings with a workout and I feel better for it. I can't wait to meet everyone and join in, this seems like a really fun (and fit) group! Tue, 8 Jun 2010 20:44:53 EST newbie alert hi all im claire, i am new to the site. i joined because i want to lose 50+Lbs. i love the wii fit so thought this group would be great for me. thanks for reading bye for now Mon, 7 Jun 2010 11:32:31 EST Wii Step with Extra Height Hi Everyone, <BR> <BR> I was just wondering if anyone uses one of those risers to make the Wii balance board higher for step aerobics. I love having the extra height, but it doesn't seem to register all of the steps. If I'm doing the Free Step, I don't mind so much. But I love doing the Advanced Step, and it keeps telling me I "missed" when I'm quite sure I did not. I don't know if it is because I'm using it on carpet or if the rister throws the board off no matter what surface you are on... Fri, 4 Jun 2010 21:02:57 EST Hello...again Hi all! I'm not completely new to the group, but after a long hiatus I'm starting all over again. I've moved out of my boyfriend's parents' horrifying basement, am employed full-time now in a job I actually enjoy, and all-in-all enjoying a MUCH more stable existence! Perhaps my attempt at weight loss will be more successful this time now that I'm not constantly stressed out! Wish me luck! <BR> Tue, 1 Jun 2010 23:28:38 EST Rhythm Kung Fu Question Hi All... New to the forum... LOVE my Wii Fit Plus! <BR> <BR> Does anyone else have a problem with the Wii Fit Board not registering some of your leg lifts on Rhythm Kung Fu? <BR> I hate getting misses, and it's kind of irritating.

I am LOVING Wii Fit Plus! He also got me a Jillian Michaels game, but it's a bit much for me right now. I suck pretty bad at the balance games, but I really like hoola hoop, rhythm parade, step aerobics, obstacle course, and the one where you fly like a bird. I have yet to try the yoga. <BR> <BR> Oh, and I have a daughter that will be two in August and I'm ready to have a 2nd child but I need to lose some weight ...

Mon, 10 May 2010 15:03:50 EST Hello Wii Friends! Hi! <BR> My sister joined this team first, and I figured I should follow suit since I too love my Wii Fit Plus. We got it for Christmas and I think I am the one most addicted to it. I am 40 yrs old from MA. Married with 2 kids. I joined sparks first in 2009- to get myself on track with the bi 4-0 approaching that year. Well I ended up quitting it, and by the year end - I was up to 172 after a family disney trip. This past February I said that is it- let's do this. I hired a personal trai... Wed, 5 May 2010 10:23:39 EST New to the team, but not to SP or Wii Hi there - I have been on SP for about 3 years now, but not active. I was pretty active in 2008, and lost about 30 lbs. I came back about a month ago and am really enjoying being back in the game. <BR> <BR> I started my exercise routine a month ago using the Wii Fit Plus. I try to do it 4-5 times a week, at least 30 minutes. I made a routine that is about 20 minutes long with Yoga and Strength exercises. Then I do Rhythm boxing and Advanced Step. After that I get on my exercise bike for 30-... Sun, 2 May 2010 21:00:16 EST Newbie I just joined this last night. I am soooo excited, I love all the awesome information and support. Finally something I can look forward to doing, and I am not alone. Wed, 28 Apr 2010 20:18:49 EST Intro & Advice I just joined Sparks and also recently brought the Wii Fit. I am a work at home Mom with 2 kids - 6 & 19 - long story, same husband. Anyway, I starting playing baseball and bowling with my younger son and now have left leg pain. After many drs. it is either pinched nerve, muscle, or restless leg syndrome. I am not sure if I should use the Wii or not and if yes how to set up a fitness program. It seems abit overwhelming! I am glad to join this team. It definitely shows that the Wii can hel... Mon, 19 Apr 2010 09:02:30 EST Frustration with the 30-Day Challenge This is now the second time I've tried to do the 30 day challenge for EA Sports, and the second time I've failed to keep up with it. It seems like I just can't find the time to do the workouts. On one hand, I thought that having that 30 day time frame would motivate me to work out more. On the other, when I miss one day, I get discouraged. I do other types of exercises, but not necessarily every day. <BR> <BR> Has anyone tried to just go through the 30 workouts listed at the end of the... Sat, 10 Apr 2010 11:03:39 EST Logging WiiFit time on SparkPeople? How do you all log your Wii Fit time on Spark People? Do you log each exercise separately under strength or do you log in the time under cardio? All opinions would be greatly appreciated. :) Thu, 8 Apr 2010 09:12:14 EST Hi New to the group Hi my name is Dimitria. I have been off and on with SP since 2007. Former WW member lost 30 and gained it back. I will be 50 and I plan to get that 30 off again. I was doing well but fell off the exercise wagon. Just got Wii and Wii fit and I am really having a good time!! Wed, 7 Apr 2010 18:53:10 EST balance board off? Hi …. I can’t find another thread on this topic so I hope I’m not asking a question you’ve already been through! <BR> <BR> My balance board is off suddenly, sometimes it won’t detect all my steps. And one day it said I’d gained 12 pounds, which I didn’t. Is it possible to get it repaired? It’s past warranty. <BR> Thu, 1 Apr 2010 14:42:58 EST Hi!

It's so nice to have others I can share with. Please check out my SparkPage. Thu, 1 Apr 2010 10:44:03 EST Maybe I did something wrong? On another team we are using the wii and tracking minutes~how often we feed our piggy LOL <BR> Anyway I noticed since using the fit plus that it no longer shows you the overall total of minutes just the daily amount. <BR> I know I still have all my "goodies" for minutes earned as I have a mii stamp for the calendar soooo did I somehow reset something and not know it? <BR> Thanks <BR> Sat, 27 Mar 2010 13:08:05 EST Hello, newbie here Hi everyone.

I am 44 years old, married with an 11 year old son, and aim to lose 42 pounds this year - 3 stone to us from U.K. I started wii fit mid Nov 09 and 8 weeks later have lost a total of 8 pounds - just the progress I need and am aiming to keep up. I just did my 61st straight day, and don't plan missing any days in year. Good luck to all, and let's motivate each other, which this site does do I see!! <BR> Sun, 17 Jan 2010 03:07:14 EST Hello I am 32 years old. I have 3 beautiful daughters aged 11, 13 & 15.5 so needless to say, I'm very busy! A few things happened all at once about 2 years ago. I gained about 30lbs then quit smoking, started a new job (office), and turned 30. I guess it was a stressful year as I am now at least 100lbs overweight. I can't seem to find anything that works!. I can loose 10lbs then I'm stuck again for a few months. Hoping that the Wii Fit will change that ... so far, day 20 no changes! But it's fun so... Thu, 14 Jan 2010 12:49:17 EST Daily Measurem ents!?!? I have been on this weightloss quest for far to long, with little results. I got the wii fit plus at christmas time and have been going on faithfully everyday, and no change! <BR> But anyway my question is the expectation that I weigh in and track my BMI everyday! Does anyone do this? I have been, but I am going to go back to just weighing myself once a week because I can't stand the daily fluctuations. Does anyone know why it suggests you do this every day? Wed, 13 Jan 2010 14:31:40 EST EA Actiive and EA active 2 I found both at walmart today...has anyone tried them? Are they any better than the wii fit? I so far haven't had any problems with my wii fit, I just want to mix it up a little bit. Any feed back suggestions? Tue, 12 Jan 2010 19:52:45 EST Hello Hi Team! I am a twenty-five year old stay at home mom of a gorgeous 4 month old baby girl.

I was a little skeptical before I stepped on the balance board, but I am really enjoying my daily workouts. I especially like how I can work towards burning off a piece of fried chicken every day... not that I actually eat one! <BR> <BR> The only gripe I have about the Wii Fit is the yoga section. The deep breathing is OK, and balanced-focused poses like tree and palm tree are ideally suited for the balance boa... Sat, 2 Jan 2010 15:57:44 EST Hello Hello everyone, just got my Wii of Christmas and got the Wii fit plus and resort with it. I have done quite a few of the games and they are A WORKOUT. I love the way it keeps track of my statistics and gives me feedback on time spent etc. The only thing I wish it told me was the distance I ran. Maybe it is there I just have not seen it. <BR> <BR> If you know how I can find out the distance ran please let me know Sat, 2 Jan 2010 12:53:07 EST QVC Has Wii Fit+ w/My Fitness Coach 2 QVC is on the air now offering Wii Fit Plus with My Fitness Coach 2 game and accessories.

Sat, 2 Jan 2010 00:20:18 EST Hi Teammates! Here I go again... So I'm not new to sparkpeople, although I might as well be since I dropped off for a while. I am new to the Wii & the balance board. I was lucky enough to be surprised by getting one this Christmas from my parents! Typically I would be hurt by such a "weight loss" focused gift, but I had been debating on splurging on one for myself for months. <BR> <BR> In the past, they have been less than tactful about not approving of my weight. Ex. My sister signed us all up for a half marathon at D... Fri, 1 Jan 2010 09:23:11 EST Hello All! My name is Shyanne and at the moment I am 140lbs. Doesn't sound so bad, however I am only 4ft. 9in. tall. According to my Wii Fit Balance board I am obese. Seeing my Mii blow up and my scale slide into the obese section was an eye opener for me. But I'm here and ready to shed all the extra junk I've been carrying around. That includes my old, unhealthy habits that got me here in the first place. Thu, 31 Dec 2009 19:17:00 EST Hey, I am NEW! Hello all! My name is Tabatha. I received my Wii Fit for Christmas from my husband (at my request). I am a mom of 3 (5,7,10) and work fulltime. It is hard to find time to do outside exercise though I love to walk. I have started using the Wii Fit and am loving it. I need to lose 60 pounds and will be working toward mini goals! Glad to have found you and here is to a good New Year with Wii Fit and Sparks! <em>250</em> <em>213</em> Tue, 29 Dec 2009 10:15:42 EST can i can i come back it's been a long time since i have been here i love my wii fit and wii fit plus. Unfortunately i love to eat also Mon, 28 Dec 2009 13:19:32 EST Biggest Loser for Wii I purchased this game about a week ago. I started using it Saturday. I'm not a fan. I prefer EA Sports Active. Anyone out there loving the game? I'm going to use it for a month and see what else it has to offer. What has your experience been with this game? Mon, 28 Dec 2009 12:07:37 EST New to team Hate to admit this, but I'm almost 40. I just ran my first 5K in July, now 6 months later, i'm training for two half marathons, one will be on Valentine's Day. My sister has lost a ton of weight and looks great, so i want to look like her. i'm a working mom, who loves to spend time with her kid. so far after two days of having the wii, we're all hooked on it. Sun, 27 Dec 2009 08:37:20 EST wii fit miles? Does anyone know how much a wii fit mile equals to a "real mile"? I do about 7.25 wii fit miles in 30 minutes. I use my HRM to measure my calories burned and heart rate but I was just curious to see how many miles I'm doing. Thanks! Mon, 21 Dec 2009 13:37:23 EST Hello Everyone! I'm new and I just wanted to say Hi! So...Hi! I am not very good at staying motivated and keeping on track and holding myself accountable. I recently married my best friend in January and am just enjoying life as it goes by. I am ready to be healthier, have more energy, and love myself again. Mon, 14 Dec 2009 00:31:34 EST New to this team Just wanted to pop in and say "Hi--I am new to this team". I have been on SP for about 4 months and have lost 33 pounds thanks to this site and you people. Wii is my favorite (but not only) type of exercise and I can't "weight" to get on it and exercise everyday! I am not a gym sort of girl at this point in my life so I'm pretty attached to my Wii - in fact I hope Santa Claus is bringing me some new games for Christmas!! And I must say that I don't really care what the exercise experts sa... Wed, 9 Dec 2009 09:24:41 EST Getting Back on Track Hello all. <BR> <BR> It’s been a while, I know, however, I thought I’d post an update while I have some time on my hands. <BR> <BR> Well, I’ve been bad off / on the last week and a ½ - 2 weeks. Thanksgiving thru me off (as holidays usually do – LOL) and the next week I was sick for several days and laid up in bed (hubby’s orders *LOL*). So I haven’t been really exercising. I’ve been sticking to doing the portion sizes the best I can and not snack so frequently like I usually have been ... Sun, 6 Dec 2009 22:23:29 EST Tracking WiiFit Activities So I'm a new-bee and am not quite sure how to log my WiiFit time here on SparkPeople. It looks as if I have to breakdown my Wii Workout and log the minutes I spent on each Wii activity individually, which is a real pain. How is everyone else doing it? Thu, 3 Dec 2009 12:05:40 EST Getting Wii Fit Hey Sparkers! <BR> <BR> Okay, time to dig myself out of the "Thanksgiving Hole" LOL. <BR> <BR> I found a great eHow article today by contributor Z Padmore, titled, "How to Get Wii Fit." As my own Wii board has gathered some dust lately, and the cold weather is starting to take the fun out of my daily walks, I thought it might be a good time to back in the groove, and wake up my Mii! <BR> <BR> Check out my article, "Getting Wii Fit" here - <BR> <link> </link> <BR> <...

Thu, 12 Nov 2009 00:46:42 EST Hi my fellow Miis. Hi everyone. i am new to the group but not to spark people. I have finally migrated from BabyFit to Sparkpeople. I have two girls and I am married to a sailor. I love my Wii Fit and just need motivation to do it more often. I need to lose 50 pounds an while this is going to take a while the Wii is a fun way for me to do it. Wed, 4 Nov 2009 17:38:36 EST My name is Margie and my stepson & his wife gave us a Wii for Xmas last year. I have thoroughly enjoyed working out on it. The first fitness test I took--I was 70 years <BR> old (a whole lot older than my minor 58 years!) Of course, since then, I have had another birthday, but I have hit <BR> 24 twice on my fitness tests! So there is hope! I know I need to step up my routines to lose a considerable amount of weight, but at least now I don't worry that I will turn over or fall off! Tue, 3 Nov 2009 18:55:27 EST Here Wii Go... I signed up for Sparkpeople back in June, but didn't really start using the site until recently. <BR> <BR> I am currently expanding my Wii Fitness library! If I'm not Wii Fitting, I'm walking/running on my treadmill and/or doing Pilates (as a former dancer I love Pilates). <BR> I currently have the Wii Fit w/balance board. I also have the Wii My Fitness Coach game which I use most often right it. <BR> I'm awaiting my Active Challenge game to arrive in the mail. It's suppo...

Sun, 1 Nov 2009 10:28:02 EST Wii Board & The Uneven Floor I just got my Wii and Wii Fit and while I was setting up Wii Fit Plus, I realized it wanted me to stand in a very strange position to be centered with my balance and have good posture. <BR> <BR> Today it occurred to me that perhaps my floor is uneven so I broke out a level and sure enough, my Wii Board is sloping mildly backwards and heavily left. <BR> <BR> I don't know what to do! Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone have any suggestions of what to do? Sun, 1 Nov 2009 09:51:25 EST Anyone Else Having Trouble with Your Wii Board?? I have wii fit and wii active and lately have been experiencing a lot of problems with my wii board. I'll turn it on and start the exercise I want and a few minutes it, it shuts off. I've changed the batteries, used it while plugged into the wii using the rechargeable batteries etc. Has anyone had this problem? How did you fix it? Fri, 30 Oct 2009 08:06:26 EST How do you track the Biggest Loser? How do you track the Biggest Loser workout in your fitness tracker? Tue, 27 Oct 2009 22:17:20 EST The funniest new game on Wii-Fit Plus... The funniest game? It just HAS to be the "Bird's-Eye Bull's-Eye" game. That's the one where you have to flap your arms and pretend to be a flying bird. Does anyone remember the "Funky Chicken" dance?? <em>100</em> <em>246</em> Well, I almost laughed myself silly doing the exercise. It was so funny (and so much fun) the first time I tried it that I overdid it. Felt like my arms were going to fall off. I come back to it almost every night. This game is a hoot (owl). <em>104</em> ... Mon, 26 Oct 2009 11:01:59 EST New Wii Nut :) Hi, everyone. :) I'm working on losing some serious weight and my Wii Fit is one of my favorite tools so when I found this group, I figured I'd join. :) Mon, 26 Oct 2009 10:51:34 EST New to the group Hi my name is Tiffany. I am fairly new to SP, joined last month. I have had the Wii Fit for almost a year now. I enjoy it, but got a little bored. I'm hoping that with more motivation I can succeed. I so LOVE the My Fitness Coach, I have used that for about 9 months (only used it for about 2 months actively) and lost around 15 lbs then life got in my way. But I am back and ready to change! Thu, 22 Oct 2009 14:18:20 EST Northwoods Loser!! July 22 <BR> <BR> Working my way down 50lbs, but having a TOUGH time breaking through into my third 10-lb goal. Thu, 22 Oct 2009 14:11:39 EST Wii fit plus!?! We just upgraded to the wii fit plus disc. I thought it was pretty neat and really fun! You can now add pets as mii's and even weigh them (I need to walk more with my dogs looks like). It also has a workout generator and improved tracker as well as mental challenges as well as fitness. Is was only 20 dollars from walmart. <em>20</em> Mon, 19 Oct 2009 22:24:53 EST HELLO! I AM NEW HERE. I am new to SP and to the WII FIT. I love my wii fit and just picked up the newest version, WII FIT PLUS! looks great! I am from Wisconsin so our winters are long and cold and sometimes we cant get out to excersize so I am hoping that the WII will help me. How much have people lost on this? Mon, 19 Oct 2009 13:02:36 EST New to group Hi everyone. I'm Renee and I love the Wii. I have been trying to do at least 30 minutes a day on it.

My name is Peggy and I am just tickled about this website. I am so glad I stumbled across it. <BR> <BR> I love everything Wii. I've only been a member of this site for several days and have already learned a lot. Just yesterday, I learned about the Biggest Loser and Wii Fit Plus. Both of which I just purchased from Amazon for $56.48, w/ free shipping. I can't wait until I get it. <BR> <BR> I promise to participate as often as possible in all the challenges and group activiti...

I have been overweight/obese since forever and it is now time to change my life - I hope I can do it this time :) Thu, 15 Oct 2009 05:33:23 EST Biggest Loser for Wii I saw the ad for this game announced on the Biggest Loser this week and bought it that night. It was sold out on the NBC site but a web search turned up another vendor. I tried it today and it is now my favorite home workout game. I have Wii Fit, Gold's Gym (which I love a lot), EA Sports (the jumping squats/lunges put me on the injured list), Daisy Fuentes Pilates (okay workout but boring), and Jillian Michaels (UGH). <BR> <BR> The BL workout kept my HR pounding and the sweat pouring. I... Sun, 11 Oct 2009 23:23:34 EST What to do with your old Wii Fit game? ;-) Sell it on ebay! <BR> Seriously, I was curious what some sell for and while someone had luck and actually sold their for 35$ (!!!), I tried my luck a tad lower and sure enough sold it for 25$! *woohoo* So the Wii Fit Plus version is paid off with that! <BR> <BR> Just thought I'd pass that on! I'm honestly not sure why someone would want the old version while the new one is only 20$ but hey, I'm not complaining! LOL Sun, 11 Oct 2009 15:38:04 EST Board battery recharger & silicone case ? Hi everyone, <BR> I've got 2 questions for you! <BR> First: Does anyone of you have a silicone case for your Wii board and if so, would you mind telling me where you got it (if from ebay, which seller?)? <BR> I really like to get one but on ebay are soo many sellers with not quite good feedback, I don't want to spend $ and then never see it again but also never the silicone case!.. <BR> <BR> Second: Does anyone have a rechargable replacement battery for the Wii board? I never even thought of...

I joined last month. I think I came to this team a little backwards. I saw the team, thought, wow, I have a Wii Fit. Then I decided to dust it off and try it again (my kids took it over to begin with!). I forgot how much fun it was!!!! i definitely want to start doing it a lot more consistently and thought that this team could probably help motivate me to do that!!! Thu, 8 Oct 2009 09:19:47 EST Slow-n-Steady, small goals leading to big ones Hi! <BR> <BR> I'ma SAHM to 2 kids, and I go to college online as well. Overall, I'd like to go from my current weight down to around 15-20lbs by Jan 1st. I get impatient when results are teensie, so I've set a smaller, sub-goal to lose 1/3 of the weight by the end of October. Hopefully before Thanksgiving, I will have lost close to 1/2 of the overall weight. :-) Sub-goals are more noticeable with results and less overwhelming for someone as impatient as me. :-) <BR> <BR> In the past, I'... Tue, 6 Oct 2009 11:04:29 EST Newie Hello everyone, <BR> I am new to this team. I love the Wii fit. I have become really addicted to it. I'm excited to see that there is a team made for it. <BR> I'm trying to get the EA Active game too, but funds may not let me get it for a while. <BR> Mon, 5 Oct 2009 16:00:42 EST Wii Biggest Loser & Your shape games anyone? I'm a big fan of the "Biggest Loser" show and just came across the Wii game on Amazon. Anyone else keeping their eyes on that one or possibly even already pre-ordered it? <BR> What about the "Your shape" game? <BR> <BR> Do you strictly stick to the EA Sports game (and the WiiFit) or do you do & want more? <BR> Right now I use Leslie Sansone's walking workouts for my daily cardio and will now add the 30 Day Challenge from Sports Active as well as do some little here and there (on lighter days... Sun, 4 Oct 2009 16:10:23 EST Wii Fit Plus Now Available! And I must say, I don't have it yet! :( I went to Wal-Mart for some tofu last night hoping to snag it as well but it wasn't out and no one was in the electronics section. Blah. Anyone have it? Sun, 4 Oct 2009 08:25:06 EST Newbie to SP and Wii Fitters! Hi fellow Wii Fitters! I've been on SP for about a week, and I'm slowly making the "rounds" to all the great groups I signed up for. <BR> <BR> My favorite part of the Wii Fit is Yoga and Balance. That's what I mostly use it for although I'm trying to branch out on different things. I look forward to trying out the challenges and sharing motivation and progress with you! <BR> <BR> Also, I've already lost 7lbs! Yay! Sat, 3 Oct 2009 12:22:08 EST Rhythmic boxing problem! Hi everyone, <BR> <BR> I got the Wii Fit 2 days ago and am still unlocking new games. Yesterday I was able to unlock the rhythmic boxing but experienced problems! <BR> When I punch with either the Wii remote or the nunchuk alone, no problems, it counts the punch. But when it comes to doing the combos like the trainer does (left, right, block etc.), it doesn't work with the nunchuk!???? What's the problem here? Is there any hint? Anything I am doing wrong? I don't get it but it's extremely fr... Thu, 1 Oct 2009 02:15:20 EST Hi! Newbie, here! (how do you turn it on?) My teens left me detailed instructions like "pick up remote" "push red button" and so on. Actually, I like to let them think that I'm technologically deficient. If they only knew ... ::evil laugh:: <BR> <BR> What are some Wii programs Team members enjoy? Can't wait to get started! :D <BR> <BR> Becky Wed, 30 Sep 2009 13:52:59 EST I'm confused... Are the only fitness games on the Balance Board the EA Active, Jillian Michaels, Gold's Gym, and Wii Fit? I thought My Fitness Coach was too, but it didn't say anything about being "Balance Board compatible" on the box I found at Best Buy this weekend... are there two versions? <BR> <BR> I'm looking to upgrade from Wii Fit - I pretty much only use it for strength training and the body test, and I'm not totally happy with the strength training. Mon, 28 Sep 2009 16:08:40 EST Introducing myself! Hi Everyone! <BR> <BR> My name is Brenda. I'm new to Wii Fitters, but not to SP.

Today I'm going out to get the Gold's Gym workout, and I can't wait to get started. I have a huge problem with staying motivated and keeping on track, so I'm looking forward to giving and receiving tons of support! Can't wait to get to know all of you! <...

Joined this team a few day ago and finally have the chance to stop by and say hi to everyone and introduce myself! My name is Alicia. I'm 29 and I want to lose 45 lbs. I've lost about 20 lbs already this year on my own but I haven't been very consistent with sticking with it so I joined SP to make friends with the same goals to keep me motivated! Sun, 6 Sep 2009 11:22:42 EST "That's Normal!" The dude told me "That's normal!" My Mii jumped up and down and clapped...the real me couldn't believe it and had to take the body test again!!! <BR> <em>9</em> <em>244</em> <em>192</em> <em>236</em> <em>104</em> Fri, 4 Sep 2009 07:23:39 EST WiiFit Plus now available for pre-order I thought I'd give everyone a heads up that Amazon sent me a message today that WiiFit Plus is available for pre-order with an expected release date of October 4, 2009. This is much quicker than I thought it was to be released! <BR> <BR> Price for game & new balance board is 99.99. Price for just game only is $19.99.

My husband and I both have noticed changes in my body...but the scales haven't changed!!! <BR> <BR> So, this morning I got on my bathroom scales and they say I've lost 4 or 5 pounds (it's a dial type scale and i'm too near sited to really see if it's 4 or 5).

Fri, 21 Aug 2009 16:51:10 EST wii weight measurements Does anyone know how accurate the wii weight measurements are? My regular scale is broken so I was wondering if week to week weigh-ins on the wii are as accurate and stable as on a regular scale. <BR> Thanks! Tue, 18 Aug 2009 20:30:08 EST Hello, I'm Andee Like so many of us multi-tasking (and in most cases over-tasking, lol) has essentially taken priority and I'm somehow lost myself in the mix. As a result I have resorted to a "couch potato" mode from being so darn worn out. During my time of denial I put on more weight that I'd ever like to admit and have decided that now is the time to KICK myself back to life. <BR> <BR> I say "back to life" because for the longest I have been concerned with everything else but, well... my own life. A fail... Mon, 17 Aug 2009 21:54:19 EST The Wii Fitters Unite! Blessings Thread No team would be blessed without a thread to share how blessed we are.

Mon, 17 Aug 2009 17:46:25 EST The Wii-Tees Breakfast Club For us Wii Fitters, a healthy breakfast begins with more than just grabbing something quick and rushing out the door (or skipping breakfast altogether). It is a critical point in our faith in ourselves and what we're doing towards our goals. On this page, post three things: <BR> <BR> Your breakfast food plan (if it's the day or night before) <BR> <BR> What time, when, where, and what you ate for breakfast <BR> <BR> Your goal of the day (even if it's not a Wii Fit goal) <BR> <BR> Remember...

Everyone out there drop a line and let me know how you like yours. Fri, 14 Aug 2009 18:58:10 EST EA SportsActive: solved issue w/squats!! Hello everyone, <BR> For those that weighed in saying they also had a problem with the squats reading right on EA SportsActive... I did some experimenting last night and what I found is if I put the leg strap such that the nunchuku was slightly to the outside of the thigh (about an inch from center towards the outside), it started reading properly and I could do a PROPER squat! <BR> <BR> Hope this helps others too! Mon, 10 Aug 2009 09:46:55 EST Hello! I am so excited! Hello, my name is Wendy and I just turned 35 yesterday. (8 August). For my birthday, my husband and children got me a WiiFit. (it was something I have been wanting since we got our Wii for Christmas. I am a stay at home mom of 3 girls, ages 9, 6 and 5. I love it. This year, my youngest starts Kindergarten, so it will be my first time to be home alone, well, in forever. I am sad and happy at the same time. I decided to get the most out of my time, I am going to start a workout routine ... Sun, 9 Aug 2009 10:36:47 EST Hi! I'm new to this team, but not new to SP or to the wii, but I am starting over on both. I get frustrated very easily when it comes to the whole weight loss thing. I've always been heavy except for a brief time when I was 18. I would like to be down to a nice decent weight that will allow me to chase my kids (I have 3 ages 12, 8, & 5). I'm doing the wiifit at first then I'd like to look into the next one which is active or something like that. But I want to "Master" wiifit first. Fri, 7 Aug 2009 21:36:41 EST Hello NEW TO THIS CLUB Hi there my name is Ellamarie I have been been working on the Wii since may. I have lost 2o lbs but then I stoped weighing in and I gained a few pounds back. So I am getting back on track I brought a real scale to weigh my self. I was using the Wii each time I weighed myself and to just keep on hooking it up between games got annoying. <BR> <BR> But anyway I am a mom of of a 3yr old boy and a wife of 16 yrs. So I get my time to do what I have to after 8:30 9 pm. Sometimes I can do my exerci... Wed, 5 Aug 2009 11:31:14 EST New here, hello! Hello! I've been a member of Sparkpages for years now... but haven't actually logged in, for over a year. We picked up the Wii Fit as a family gift this March, and used it daily until the neighborhood pool opened. Now that the summer is cooling down & I'm not chasing the kids around a pool anymore, I'm getting back onto the board every day. This is my 5th day in a row - again, and my current routine is: <BR> <BR> Warm-Up <BR> Sun Salutation & 10-rep Sideways Leg Lift <BR> Half-Moon & 10-rep... Tue, 4 Aug 2009 12:49:03 EST Wii run distances Hi all, <BR> <BR> I've been looking and haven't found this... I'm pretty obsessive about my exercise credits, so this morning when I worked out I put on my pedometer before I ran with Wii Fit this morning. My pedometer does an automatic mileage tracking, here's what I ended up with: <BR> <BR> Short Run: .12 miles <BR> Long Run: .19 miles <BR> Island Lap: .52 miles Wed, 29 Jul 2009 16:38:43 EST ? Wii Fit users!! <em>38</em> Is there a way to set up to do training at the beginning without having to go back into the menu every time. It seems to waste a lot of time just picking the things that I want to do every 2 - 3 minutes. <BR> <BR> <em>304</em> <BR> <BR> Angel Wed, 29 Jul 2009 10:46:43 EST I'm a Wii wannabee! :o) I've had my Wii since March, but fell off the bandwagon, because I got (don't get mad) bored! I'm so happy I joined this group, have the Wii Routine Generator is GREAT! Otherwise I would cheat and only do the exercises I didn't struggle with as much. So thank you! My husband and I also enjoy Wii EA sports. Anyone else??? <BR> Bethany Fri, 24 Jul 2009 12:41:21 EST My new start Hello everyone I joined this group sometime ago. I have not been to active.

Can anyone give me some advice? I bought that stupid Jillian Michaels' game and it is terrible. It was such a huge waste of money. I don't want to make the same mistake twice. Thu, 16 Jul 2009 13:53:10 EST EA SportsActive: issue w/squats reading right Has anyone else had a problem on EA SportsActive that no matter where I put the leg strap on my leg, the game only registers me doing a squat when I go all the way down to where my thighs hit my calves and my knees are past my toes (which is completely bad form)! <BR> <BR> If I do the squats in proper form, the game says I am not going down all the way. This is quite frustrating and really hurting this games creditability for me. I've moved the strap around different places on my leg, but... Wed, 15 Jul 2009 20:42:41 EST New to the Team Good Evening <BR> I join the team last night and am hoping that I can keep up. I have started the 30 day challenge and doing the easy one first, I am having fun and after the active challenge, I either do the fit or play the sports game for a bit. Trying to drop weight, tone up and be able to walk in the Oct 3rd Cancer Walk. <em>30</em> Thu, 9 Jul 2009 19:01:56 EST Easy Tone I just got a pair of those Reebok EasyTone shoes.

Woohoo! <BR> Tue, 30 Jun 2009 13:57:13 EST Waaay too hard! Okay, I was all excited to try the new EA Active. Obviously, it is NOT for someone as heavy as I am. <em>33</em> First off, the leg thing wouldn't go around my thigh. (embarrassing! <em>2</em> ) There's a velcro band included to shorten it, but the band doesn't really help if you need to lengthen it. Then there were the squats. No way with the arthritis in my knees can I do squats. Lunges are out, too. This seems to be a game for those who are already fit. <em>234</em> I think I'll... Tue, 30 Jun 2009 12:35:20 EST So I have a silly question... I am apparently having a blonde moment. I am new to this whole thing and am having a little bit of trouble tracking my fitness time. How do I enter the time that I spent working out with the Wii fit acurately? <em>304</em> Tue, 23 Jun 2009 10:31:03 EST please allow me to introduce myself My name is AL, and I am a wii fitter. I have had wii fit since around January, but our wii broke a few months ago and last week we finally sent it back to Nintento for repairs. We got it back two days later, so this afternoon I dug out wii fit and got back in the game. I am tired from hula hooping for 20 minutes! I did some strength exercises too, but I didn't get much out of the ones I did. <BR> <BR> I am looking to lose 72 pounds, and I hope that the wii fit will help me reach that goal. ... Mon, 22 Jun 2009 00:27:18 EST How do I free step? This seems like a silly question but how do I watch TV while the Wii is on? <BR> <BR> Mon, 22 Jun 2009 00:00:21 EST Scale accuracy? Hi all, <BR> <BR> I noticed today that the balance board is recording a much different weight than my scale - the Wii says I weigh more 10 lbs less than my bathroom scale (I think it's about 168 vs. 180 - in my workout clothes). Has anyone else noticed this? I am using the board on carpet, but I didn't think it was enough to interfere with the board (haven't used the extenders). <BR> <BR> Ideas? Or am I just overthinking (as usual!)?

Mon, 15 Jun 2009 19:33:59 EST Newbii ;) Hi all, <BR> <BR> After waffling about it for... gosh... months, I guess, I finally got a balance board & Wii Fit for my son's Wii (he'll never notice, right? ;) ) I also got the Jillian Michael's ultimatum (THEN read the reviews :( ) <BR> <BR> Anyway. Today was my first workout with it - I went through most of the Wii Fit exercises (skipped Aerobic, and only did two balance exercises) and a 5 minute "light" workout with the JM disc to see how it was.
