Hi, Emi, Amber! Newbie here, too, sort of. Returning to SparkPeople after an absence of several years. Lovin' the smartphone apps that SP now has. And liking SP better than Facebook! emoticon

I'm a middle-aged geek-girl from way back - always loved computers. My very first computer was a Commodore VIC20. Any oldies like me here remember Telnet and dial-up modems? emoticon

I'm a caregiver, so video gaming is my me-time when I'm not doing that. But all that sitting also added to more weight gain, even though I'm moving around quite a bit during the day. So, gonna have to start walking/biking on a daily basis now that it's Spring and try to limit the gaming to late nights!

I like a little bit of everything, but I mostly play casual games and RPGs - PC and console. Love word games and road-builders. Also play some hardcore stuff like Halo, but not very good at those. Diablo III is a thumbs-up, though. Love the games with medieval fantasy themes! Love Minecraft, too, but in survival mode - forget it - Monsters get me every time! emoticon

So great to find fellow gamers on SP! You all have a great weekend!

Ello there! My name is Emiry but everyone calls me Emi~
I have been playing games all my life since I was 4 and still enjoy it as much as I did back then. Online I like to compete in games like League of Legends or Hearthstone, but when I want to unwind I enjoy the stories and puzzles of Professor Layton.
Nintendo is my life and I will never stop loving the Legend of Zelda series. I can go on and on about games that I enjoy or dislike but thats for another time.
Im very glad to meet all of you and I hope to maybe play with some of you in the future!

Hi all! New to the group, but not to Spark. I, unfortunately, fell off the bandwagon and got run over by the wagons a few times, but I'm looking to restart. I love gaming, both video and table top, and am currently a part of a gaming group on YouTube. I'm looking to lose the post-baby weight plus some. Hopefully I can stick with it this time and not lose motivation!

Holy crap I'm in the same boat as you; graduated college December 2012, got a desk job, and played video games all the time to deal with the change as well. Practically all the games you're into I love! And GW2 is AMAZING :)

Hi my name is Jasmine, but I go by Faeleena in the online and gaming world. I have way too many hobbies, but games are how I unwind. I've been overweight most of my life and now that I've changed my eating habits I'm finally throwing in some serious exercising habits. I'm already losing weight and I really started getting serious about this 2 weeks ago. I'm trying to do about 45 minutes of exercise each day.

I have Kinect, WiiFit, DDR, and lots of games to support it, but I usually stick to basics like my elliptical and exercises that don't require anything. I listen to a 2 minute motivational speech as my wake up alarm every morning and that has really made a difference in my attitude and making these things I want in life a higher priority. I'm feeling really good about things and I hope you guys are just as inspired.

Hello! My name is Bri, I joined spark almost a year ago, but never ended up using it. I am now ready to get going, and hopefully stay motivated this time. I love video games on almost any system, and currently have an xbox 360 and ps4. I have a problem of guilting myself out when I play video games lately though :( I am not being active when I play them..and feel like I should be doing other, more productive things. I can't afford kinects or a wii fit since I am a student (the ps4 isnt mine). I know I need better time management skills, and am WAY more lazy than I want to be. Motivation is my main problem, so how can I be a productive gamer? Anyways, nice to meet you all :P

Hey my name is Ben, I game more often than your average bear. I play anything that appeals to me. But lately I have been playing LoL, D3, and completing a Zelda pilgrimage. I also play SWtOR when I have money to pay the subscription, and the occasional shooter. I have lost 33 pounds, and I want to lose 25-35 more.

YAY TIBBERS!!!

Hi I am Elizabeth. I've been on Spark People since about February. I have had about six weeks of not doing as good as i have been in the past so today is the day I start over again. I am an avid gamer. I am married to my wonderful husband of six years (in August) and he is also an avid gamer. We used to be World of Warcraft Players but we stopped in the last few months (him actually before me). Now we both play Star Wars: The Old Republic with some of our previous wow friends. It's funny, before I met my husband I was not a big gamer. I would play Sims but that was about it. I have a WII with WII fit but I am still too overweight to use it. I've only got about 15 pounds left though then I will start using it for yoga and such. I want an XBOX Kinect but I think I'm going to wait until the new XBOX comes out and then the 360 will be super cheap.

Welcome to the both of you to this team. I am glad you are using the gaming systems for exercise and I think Dance Central is a great way to exercise. I tried to get back into it last weekend it and it kicked my butt. I did my own playlist with songs a like and it made the workout more enjoyable.

Hi Everyone! :) I'm not new to Sparkpeople, but I did recently discover this group and decided to join, since I enjoy using my PS3 and Xbox to get in shape. I'm currently down 15lbs thanks to Zumba and Dance Central 3! I love dance games - its the music and dance moves that keep me interested. I also own Your Shape Fitness Evolved, but that one is a little hard on my joints right now, so I'll come back to it once I lose a bit more weight.

Hey, I'm Nana, 25. I'm from connecticut. I play games on a very regular basis, mostly PS3, Wii(working through a few gamecube games currently), and my 3DS. My husband is also an avid gamer and we seem to resort of gaming as means of gifts for every holiday. Not gonna complain though, just got the wii U. I do like working out and sometimes I'll bring my DS to the gym, it works well on the bike, easier games can be played on the treadmill. I don't know why I get weird looks playing Ocarina on a bike when other people are on their phones, heh. Anyway, happy to find this group!

Hi, I'm from Nova Scotia and I have a Wii fit and an xbox kinect. We also have a Tony Little Gazelle (my fav cardio since it doesn't hurt my knees) and a elliptical (mostly used by my husband).

I really like most of the yoga exercises on the wii fit and a few of the strength ones. I think the Gazelle takes care of most of my cardio needs so I'm not really looking for that from the Wii fit.

We've got the just got the Biggest Looser for the xbox kinect and I haven't tried it yet.

Welcome Ckickadees, I think some goods ones on Kinect are Biggest Loser, Dance Central(all of them) Zumba Fitness (Rush and Core) UFC Ultimate Trainer and Nike just came out with one called Nike + or something like that.

Hi, I'm Amy. I"m 41 and mom to 2 boys ages 13 and 7, and married to a wonderful, supportive man for almost 14 years. I lost about 40 pounds on Sparkpeople in 2011 but totally slacked off in 2012 and need to get back on track. I love video games and need to make an effort to incorporate some more active games into our collection. My favorites are Final Fantasy, Mass Effect, and Uncharted. We have a Wii and a Kinect (I prefer the Kinect). I have one of the Your Shape fitness games. I'd love some recommendations on some other active games I could try!

Tema, right now I'm playing Gears on the Xbox...as far as Kinect games, I have Kinect adventures and Kinect sports season 1. I did dl a trial of Zumba and I am just not that coordinated I don't think. I fell 2 times in 15 mins!!! LOL I'll keep trying at it until I can get good and then I'll probably try out some classes, after I drop some weight. So, I know how you both feel as far as feeling/looking like dorks!!!! emoticon

Hi, I'm Oona. I'm 41 and I've been married to a wonderful woman for about 4 years. (We've been together since I was 19.) I love video games. I have a Pc (obviously), a PS3, a Wii and Xbox w/Kinect.( The only bad thing about my Xbox is that my wife bought it for me and got me the 4 gig hdd. So, I only have a couple of games for it.) I really enjoy Madden, COD, Gears of War, GTA, and the Sims.

Welcome, Lisa!

I enjoyed playing a Silvari on GW2, though I haven't logged in in a while. :o)

It sounds like you've got some great insights into what you want/don't want already, that's great!

Hi all, a New Year's bandwagoner here. I gained some weight after graduating college, moving back home, starting a desk job, and throwing myself into video games to deal with the change. I figure the best way to balance my love of games and the need to get healthy would be to join a group of like-minded folks. :)

I love me some RPGs - Skyrim, Fallout, Harvest Moon, Final Fantasy. I also dabble in MMOs - I got Guild Wars 2 for Christmas so I'm really into that lately.

Hello! My name is Megan and I live in Los Angeles, California. I've gained a decent amount of weight since I moved out here because I work a desk job, so I'm hoping to get rid of it (and then some) again. I only play PC games because I prefer the precision of a mouse... I can't seem to find that with a controller. Currently I'm playing Borderlands and Borderlands 2. :)

I stumbled on this team and had to join! Our family just got Kinect and I love it so far. We have dance games, Biggest Loser and Your Shape too. I also play Guild Wars 2 but that's not for fitness ;)

My name is Amber. I'm 29 and live in central Ohio. I'm a stay at home mom of two kids. I've been overweight my whole life and just recently committed to getting healthy. I just joined Spark a few days ago and already love it. Glad to be here!

Hi guys! I joined a few weeks ago but never got around to introducing myself:) My name is Krista, I'm 29 and my guiltiest pleasure is video games! I grew up around all the classic consoles, at one point we had 6 different consoles in the house! I gave up gaming for a time because I missed the simplicity of the old games, but after my Husband bought a PS3 I played Dragon Age Origins and I was hooked:) I especially love rpg's, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Elder Scrolls, Kingdoms of Amular, and right now I am playing Dragon's Dogma. I have to admit I have been putting down the controller lately in favor of a more active lifestyle, but I will always make time for my games. I want to start playing some of the more active fitness games, but I only have a PS3 right now and the selection is kind of weak. I hope to get an Xbox or a Wii soon so I can start exercising and gaming at the same time!

Hi all,

I am currently aiming to burn around 26lbs of fat and build muscle tone. As well as The Biggest Loser I also use Zumba Rush for the Kinect alternating between short high intensity routines to longer medium intensity routines. I also strength train 4 times a week using kettle-bells.

I have opted for the 12 week Super Weight Loss programme on the Biggest Loser game. It involves doing a mix of circuit training, box fit and yoga. I have chosen to do these routines for 40 minutes 6 times a week.

Once I finish this 12 week programme I will move on to the 8 week Belly Buster programme, following this, the 8 week Beach Buns programme (which will slim and tone my glutes and thighs) and then I will move on to the 12 week Fighting Fit programme which is designed to improve agility, coordination and stamina.

If anyone else is using these games and recommend other Xbox games please message me.

Greetings, all! I've been with Sparkpeople for about two months now, and this is one team I know I'll definitely fit in with! My love for gaming is one of the reasons I needed to join SP in the first place, but with this program, I've learned to balance my love of gaming with other things like exercise and, wait for it. Being social! Gasp!

I play on my Playstation 3 mostly, but on my PC too every now and again. I love just about any genre of games though. Lego Star Wars, Batman: Arkham City, Fallout and Elder Scrolls [Skyrim, wootwoot!] (a few of my favs!), Metal Gear, and so on and so forth. I won't take up an entire post listing the things I do play, lol.

Oh! I do love Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 though. I'm not too competitive though. I just like having fun with it. If you're interested in having some matches, just ask me for my Playstation Network ID. :D

Well that's it for me for now. Good luck to everyone on your weight loss and exercise goals! If I can do it, anyone can.

Namaste.

My treadmill has a big ledge on top where I can set my (small) laptop, and I just do easy things that don't require constant clicking. A game that you level with real world exercise sounds amazing, though!

Nothing changes until you do.

Welcome to the Team, New folks! Wish y'all best of luck on reaching your goals, hopefully you find us helpful and entertaining.

Liz, How do you play an MMO on the treadmill? Is it just the balancing act of a laptop on a treadmill, or like... a treadmill game? I dunno. The concept of an MMO that relies on real world exercise to level a character sounds really cool. The Wii Fit should do that. Or the Kinect. Or the Move.

Hey y'all! My name is Liz, I currently live in New York, and I'm a graphic/web designer. I don't have a console with me here, but when I visit my parents, you can't get me away from my sister's PS3 and Skyrim. My other favorites include Resident Evil, various Final Fantasy titles, and Kingdom Hearts.

I've recently figured out how to play an MMO on the treadmill, so motivation to exercise is not a problem! I also like to play DDR and Just Dance when I can, and my non-gaming-related exercise includes strength training, going for walks, and Zumba.

My summer goal is to lose at least 15 pounds, and my long term goal is to get to a healthy weight and maintain with a better lifestyle. I want to skydive, bungee-jump, hike a mountain, run a marathon, and more! I can't do those things without making some changes.

Nothing changes until you do.

Hey everyone. I'm Chara, a music teacher from Texas. My husband and I met in an MMO, so gaming is a pretty big part of our life. :) I play a few MMO's (Lotro mostly, and a little Aion and SWToR for a while), and mostly games I classify as "cute" on the consoles... Mario, Harvest Moon, Little Big Planet, stuff like that. I've tried FPS's before, but I suck at them and it drives me nuts not having peripheral vision, so I don't really do any of that. Oh, I do have Zumba and Wii Fit, also a cardio bixing one for Wii, and I do those from time to time. Wii Fit is my scale. :)

Soooooo... here I am. I am about to begin a summer of leveling up my neglected toons, but I also want to stay active and loose at least 20-25 pounds before we start school in the fall!

***Chara***

It will hurt. It will take time. It will require dedication.It will require willpower. You will need to make healthy decisions. It requires sacrifice.You will need to push your body to its max. There will be temptation. But, I promise you, when you reach your goal, IT'S WORTH IT.

Hi! I am Sara and I play mostly RPG and FPS games mainly on PC and XBOX. I also exercise. I have used sparkpeople for a little over a year and have accomplished a 50 pound weight loss. I have kept it off, even after slacking for a little bit now. I am ready to jump back in and get back to my goals. I think that a huge part of being able to lose weight is being around other's who share the same goals and interests which is why I am here. :D
