When I go to start it treats me as if I have done all my activities for the day, and then when I check my schedule it has all Friday the 18th dates and nothing assigned to any of the Fridays. I turned the wii off and on and tried again, but still this strangeness. I can still do exercises in freeplay that I have saved. If any of you have had this occur, please...

I'm so glad there is a group for people who are using the same program I am. I'm on vacation this week so I am going to get back into the routine of moving my body again. I hope there is some good communication in this group. I look forward to getting to know you. <em>41</em> Sun, 26 Dec 2010 22:30:23 EST Started This And Am Disappointed http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x38579x37545632 Well, I started The Biggest Loser Wii two weeks ago. I have been sticking to the game faithfully by working out and logging my foods. I had my second weighin last night and have stayed the same again even though Ali lost 12 lbs. last week and 9 lbs. this week. I am totally disgusted and feel like stopping the game. Tue, 26 Oct 2010 11:00:13 EST Back at it http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x38579x37382574 I started doing BL Wii this May when I weighed in at 261. I stopped working on the Wii during the summer because I was getting plenty of exercise on my bike and I didn't really need another workout. <BR> <BR> I did the workout a few times over the summer to test how I'm progressing in fitness. I was so impressed when I could do all the push-ups! When I could even do jumping jacks! <BR> <BR> I'm now almost 50 pounds lighter. And it's time to start up the Wii again. <BR> <BR> I'm going...

If we go with teams, I'll start separate threads for each team. <BR> <BR> Since its not only about weight loss but about being active, I think there will be 2 winning categories - most minutes exercised and most weight loss. <BR> <BR> To give everyone enou... Sun, 26 Sep 2010 18:59:16 EST Training not on Schedule??? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x38579x36851217 Ok.. So I've had the program since Saturday, and I only missed 1 workout. Yet - Everyday it tells me that I have no training scheduled and I have to manually add it to my calendar? Is there any way for me to have this auto added to my calendar every day? Also - no challenges or weigh-ins on my schedule.. whats up with that? Wed, 22 Sep 2010 11:52:43 EST Me, in a nutshell http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x38579x36717536 I live in WV, working towards getting myself feeling and looking better. I'm excited at how well I'm doing so far. I've never been so motivated toward a goal before. Not sure what else to say. Feel free to add me as a friend, and I'll do likewise Wed, 15 Sep 2010 21:38:04 EST new girl in town http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x38579x35993021 Hey all! I just got the biggest loser Wii game...and almost got eliminated today! I didn't even know that was possible :( <BR> <BR> How are you all doing with it? Wed, 11 Aug 2010 20:57:57 EST What happened to this forum? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x38579x34862738 It looks like the BL Wii forum has been pretty inactive since April. It feels kinda lonely in here! <BR> <BR> Did everybody start exercising out-of-doors instead of working out on the Wii? <BR> <BR> Did everybody who got the Wii for Christmas already reach their goals? <BR> <BR> If you're still here and doing the program check in here!

So far, I love it (except for all those lunges!!) I am using it to help me lose about 100# and my husband is using it to improve his fitness level. I love that we both can use it for completely different goals! <BR> <BR> I am a stay-at-home mom in Minnesota, I have a 13 year old son and a 9 month old daughter.

My name's Heather and I recently bought the BL Wii game and I'm not sure if I like it or not. I have been doing the challenge workouts and end up drenched in sweat, but the stupid thing says I'm only burning like 39 calories. WTH is up with that?! <BR> <BR> I also get frustrated with it because there doesn't seem to be real clear directions. Does the program set up my weekly workouts or do I have to do that? If so, HOW? And how do I get it to weigh me after the initial day of set...

However, I am traveling quite a bit and everytime I start one of the weigh in days falls when I am out of town. Is there any way to manually adjust the weigh in days or set them some way when you start a challenge. I can understand not wanting someone to keep putting off weighing in once a challenge starts but shifting one day (i.e. a saturday to a sunday for one week would be a big help (one specific day does not work for all the weeks)).

I just found this website last week and am really excited! I started this weight loss journey (again) 3 months ago! After 4 pregnancies and 5 kids (ages 10,7,3 and 16 month old twins)... I needed some work on my body again!! We have loved using the wii as a family and I love watching Biggest Loser... so when I saw that they had a wii fitness program out- I was really excited! I love it! It's always changing and different- and I need that! I can't get out to a gym right now to work out, so... Mon, 19 Apr 2010 12:07:38 EST Hello all! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x38579x33490926 I have had the WII BL 'game' for a while and love it when I do it (although I have been 'falling off the wagon' of late). But, now I've joined Spark too, so this is already keeping me on track better! My favorite part about the BL DVD is that the workouts change all the time (and it just chooses for you)...not like DVDs that are the same workout each time!

The weekly weigh in would be similar to that of the Biggest loser. <BR> <BR> Since everyones weigh in day on the game is different, everyone can post anytime throughout the week. <BR> <BR> We can do pounds loss or percent loss (as with BL).

So he decided to try out my BL Wii. As he set up his profile, his ego got in the way a bit and set his program to Challenging. <BR> <BR> Well, he did his first workout last night and boy did he struggle. He was huffin and puffin. He only made it thorough the first circuit (I beleive it was 15 min of the 45 minutes program). <BR> <BR> I suggested he could modify his program to a lower intensity.

Tonight is the first night playing. I set my workout on the light one. I cannot believe how much Im out of shape. I barely made through. I will be the first to admit that I do not like exercise. I would rather sit on the couch and relax. I have thyroid issues which makes weight loss almost impossible without exercise.

I've got most of the other wii fitness games but I have a feeling that this will become one of my favourites. Looking forward to getting to know you all! Mon, 1 Feb 2010 05:57:04 EST Howdy Hi http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x38579x31496298 Joined the group yesterday and started the BL for wii this morning. I started at Beginner and went for a four week fitness plan. The suggested calorie intake is 1100 calories, which is what I've probably been consuming anyway. I'm not big on counting calories, carbs, or points, but I keep my portions reasonable and healthy. <BR> <BR> The BL set a weight loss goal of 5 lbs in 2 weeks for me. So, we'll see how this goes!

First, let me thank all of you that wished me well. I really appreciate it. <BR> <BR> Now, since I did absolutely nothing, well I did do two workouts, the end result was, + 2lbs and I was eliminated. I should be upset with myself, but life goes on. So tomorrow, is a new day. I am beginning the 8-week challenge tomorrow. Anyone here doing the same? I would love a buddy to workout with. <BR> Mon, 25 Jan 2010 14:01:39 EST Challenge Jan 25 - Feb 1st http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=13849x38579x31400221 Our challenge this week: <BR> Track every single bite put into our mouths using our tools here. <BR> Workout during the Biggest Loser show Tuesday night. <BR> Choose another small step to focus on this week. <BR> Mon, 25 Jan 2010 13:50:15 EST New challenge this week? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x38579x31390714 Just wondering if we have a new challenge this week?

Thu, 14 Jan 2010 09:44:29 EST Hello from Illinois http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x38579x31063059 Hello everyone <em>213</em> my name is Jace and I'm 35 years old. I currently live in the Chicago area. I just purchased the BIGGEST LOSER for Wii yesterday and used it last night. I'm still trying to figure out exactly HOW it works, in terms of days you are supposed to exercise and stuff. I set myself up for the 8 week challenge, so we will see how it goes. If anyone has any pointers, I'm all ears! Wed, 13 Jan 2010 19:33:05 EST Pause http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x38579x31049376 Does anyone know if there is a way to pause the workout part way through? It is inevitable that half way through my workout the dogs will decide they need to go out. I would rather not skip excercises in my routine to do this.

I want the trainer to say something like the title of the new move or a sound to occur that signals that a new move has begun. <BR> Here is why: I was doing "plank on knees" move while looking down at the ground. I can't see my TV while doing a plank move. I finally got tired and looked up to find out he was doing the "plank" move. So I started doing the "plank". Then I get tired again and look up to find out he is doing some move wh... Tue, 12 Jan 2010 20:32:08 EST How do you track fitness for the game time? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x38579x31028517 Do you track the 20 min workout on the biggest loser Wii game as aerobics? I want to add my 20 min training session to the fitness tracker, just not sure where it goes. I see special catagories for the Wii fit, but no other Wiii fitness games. Am I just not looking in the right place? Thanks!

I am glad to be apart of this team! I just finished my first 20 min workout and thought I was going to die! I cant believe how out of shape I really am. I also was impressed with how great a workout I received. I was drenched in sweat time I was done with just 20 min. I am new to this whole get into shape thing. The lunges are hard for me to follow exactly what I am suppose to be doing. Maybe if I just watch it one time first, Ill get it be...

I know that I recently posted being confused about the way BL weighed me. I am no longer confused. Today during my challenge, which I totally ROCKED, it showed that I weighed 169lbs. Well guess what, it showed 172lbs since I started the game. Good or bad, I don't know, but I was so happy to see that 169lbs. That means that I am finally moving. <BR> <BR> Mon, 11 Jan 2010 20:04:36 EST Challenge Jan 10th - Jan 16th http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=13849x38579x30970694 Our challenge this week: <BR> Track every single bite put into our mouths using our tools here. <BR> Workout during the Biggest Loser show Tuesday night. <BR> Choose another small step to focus on this week.

Now my game has me weigh in on Fridays I am assuming everyones is the same. So my suggestion is to log your starting weight, hen from here out Friday can be when we log weight/lbs lost. After everyone has posted I will announce the "Biggest Loser" for the week and that person will be awarded a Sparkgoodie. At the end of the season I will see who the "Biggest Loser" is. I am hopig this will be fun and motivating.
