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.

Thank you, Paintfairy was a nick name I got in highschool that kind of stuck . I got huge fairy wings tattooed on my back actually, first tattoo. But yea, I had a different account with that name, but didn't like how it showed all my yoyo dieting, so boom, deleted, trying to be better this time around!

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.

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

My name is Ashlie. I'm 21, and I'm from Kentucky. My goal at the beginning of the year was to lose 50 pounds. I'm down 15 pounds, with 35 to go.

I love video games. I play strategy games on the computer, like Civilization V. I also play a lot of shooters, and some rpgs, on Xbox 360. My current faves are Homefront and Gears of War 3. I'm actually in the Gears of War 3 Division of the all-girl gaming clan, PMS. If anyone wants to game, feel free to hit me up on Xbox live. My gamertag is PMS LoveLetter.

Ashlie :)

HI! My name is Joshua and I spend most of my free time playing PS3(BbleThumper) with my girlfriend. My current short-term goal(1-month) is to allocate simply 20min a day to exercise and to continue to improve my daily diet. And long-term(1-year) is to lose and maintain ~50lbs.
I love most RPGs...I have 150+ hours on Fallout 3:New Vegas(only 69% of the trophies) and 160+ hours on Skyrim(which I obtained 100% of the trophies for...). I play a lot of MW3 and Black Ops Zombies with friends online and recently acquired Killzone 3(FUN). Last weekend I borrowed Final Fantasy XIII and have been making my way through that game all week :) (With my trusty game guide of course :P)


Cheese and Crackers,
Joshua

Lali-ho!

My name is Lena. I've been gaming since I was a kid, and am happy to find a sparkteam for it! I mostly stick to Strategy games and RPGs , but dabble in the fighting, rhythm, and platforming genres. I also really enjoy shooting games, but have no ability at all.To clarify on rpgs, while I enjoy some PC ones ( Mass Effect, DA,Baldur's gate, Fallout, etc) I mainly play jrpgs (don't laugh too hard) so series like Final Fantasy, Persona, Star Ocean etc. Same with strategy games, most of the ones I've played are like FFtatics, the fire emblem series, Disgaea, etc.

Aside from videogames, I like fantasy/science fiction novels, comics, anime, and fencing (my nerd credentials? I guess :D ). I joined sparkpeople to become more active, and well here I am!

Nice to meet you!

Hi!
I'm Sarah, I just started my Diet/Exercise (Zumba Fitness Rush) routine this last Wednesday as part of a challenge between my husband and I while he is on deployment.
At the moment I am a stay-at-home-mom of a 14 month old until I find a job. Part of this challenge between us, was for his support since the Navy recently let me go since I couldn't loose enough weight within the 6 months since my son was born. I feel like if I can do this, then I can prove to myself that I CAN lose the weight!
Thankfully since being out of the Navy my postpartum depression has gotten a lot better, as has the anxiety that accompanied it. I'm hoping that with losing this weight and getting healthier, I feel even better emotionally.

When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
and forget all about being healthy and thin.
So What! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.

Hi there - 35 year old guy here from New Mexico. I like games from all different systems but am particular to Mass Effect and Resident Evil games. Some great games I've played recently: Dead Space 2, Portal 2 and Mass Effect 2. Some boring-to-crappy games I have played recently: Super Paper Mario Wii, Rage, Dragon Age.

Right now I'm doing a bootcamp workout with a team in a Biggest Loser-style program. I've lost 7 pounds+ so far and finished a 3.3 mile run today in 37 minutes - my best time ever today.

Hi there :)
I was so glad finding a gaming team on Sparkpeople. :) I'm addicted to gaming (which probably contributed to me gaining a bit too much weight), and glad to meet more people that are just as enthusiastic about video games. ♥
Still playing lots of video games now, but I've added in Dance Central 2 for the Kinect to my daily gaming, and oh jeez. I'm pretty sure I've never played a video game that made me produce that much sweat in my life! Haha :)

Nice to meet you SABAAH! I like some RPGs myself. I still haven't tried any form of Zumba, though it seems really popular. I am not a very good dancer and I worry I wouldn't be able to follow the steps. I like cardio kickboxing better because I know I can punch and kick when the instructor tells me to :)

No excuses!

Greetings All!

I'm Sabaah. I intend to lose 100lbs, (aka 1 supermodel) in 2012. I'm an old school gamer. PS2, PS3 and Wii RPGs are my favorite types of games.
For Xmas this year I got myself ZumbaFitness 2 for the Wii because I can't afford a class yet. I LOVE IT! I've dropped about 5-6lbs so far. I think I can do better in the months to come.

Welcome to the group! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did, I'm just now returning to spark because I've got some weight to lose also. Look forward to the challenges they have on here and the game topics that I usually get myself caught up in!

I'm a 29 yr old mom of two with some weight to lose :) I love gaming. I am currently playing Skyrim and God of War on PS3. I also have a DS. Just got rid of the Wii, planning on getting the Playstation move, does anyone recommend any good games for the move? I want the The Fight Lights Out and Sports Champions but I was considering Active 2 also. I usually mixup my workouts a lot. This week I'm doing Turbo Jam's Cardio Party every other day and Turbo Jam AB Ripper with Pilates for Dummies Basic workout on the other days. My abs are sore but I really like the Turbo Jam workouts. I'm also an online student with University of Phoenix. I love the spark community but have had trouble sticking with other groups because we don't seem to share the same interests. I'm hoping to find some friends in this group that I can chat with about games and lose weight with emoticon

No excuses!

Hey Tema!

Thanks for your information! I will try and "hang" with the zumba :) No, I haven't tried the dvds yet. A lot of my friends go to zumba classes and love them, but I can't go because they are always during the time when I can't get a babysitter for my 4 boys :( So, my sweet hubby got it for me for the wii. I will have to check out the dvds. Can't wait!

Thanks for the welcome guys! See you around soon!

Welcome to the team everyone. Sorry it hasnt been a great start of the year but I have not seen much gaming news recently. I will be on more often in the coming week with gaming news and fitness news of upcoming games.

Hey guys! I'm a 40 something Mom with 4 boys. I am new to SP and I love it! I am learning so much from everyone.

I have a Wii and I try to exercise with my wii fit and zumba I got for Christmas. Love, love, love, the wii fit but, Oh my goodness! The zumba will kill you or knock a hip out of socket!!! I don't know if it is my age or lack of hip shaking all my life! Ha! My problem is getting my 3 and 4 year old boys outta my way!! Needless to say, I don't get as much of a workout as I would like.

Hope to learn from you guys!

Hi, my name is Tomi and while I'm not new to Sparkpeople, I'm new to the group. I re-joined Sparkpeople because this time I'm serious about my weight loss. I have an 18 year old, a 9 year old and 6 year old daughter. The main reason I want to lose weight is because I have to but also because my 18 year old is graduating and I don't want her to look back at that memory and thinking of my being fat. Not to mention all the pictures I won't be in if I don't lose weight!! LOL, ANYWAY, we just got an XBox 360 and Kinect for Christmas and I like doing the Just Dance, it really gets my heart pumping!!!

Hi all! I am just getting into gaming as my husband is a gaming fanatic. I've been using the Wii for Just Dance and I have the Abba dance one on the way (what can I say-I love Abba!). We have a PS3 as well but I haven't gotten into it because some of those games make me nauseous. DH was playing Bioshock 2 and I was watching and I was sure I was going to vomit. DH read an article that said that's because it's moving and the inner ear plays mind games because I'm not moving and that if I did it more it would get better?

My bf and I just received the Kinect for Christmas so we have all of two games. Kinect Adventures and Disneyland Adventures.

Heads up ya'll, Disneyland can be a workout.

I did really enjoy the DC demo though

Hello, I'm about a week or so behind on introducing myself, but I'm here now. :)

I'm Amber, and I've tried numerous times to lose weight, but always cave and gain it back. I'm hoping that SparkPeople will be able to help me stay on track a little more. It's already helped me discover new foods.

Any games ya'll recommend for the Kinect, let me know.

Hey! We've had our Kinect for about a year. I currently have Zumba, and enjoy playing it when alone. I recently purchased Your Shape: Fitness Evoloved 2 and I'm looking forward to starting it along with my best friend. We're going to keep each other in check in terms of working out on the program. I'm super excited about it!

Hi I bought the Kinect about a year ago and haven't used it much and I'd like it to change that. I've been doing Dance Central 2 lately and getting a pretty good workout when I get a chance. My supplementary exercise is the rebounder and playing with my six children.

Hi there!

I'm Tricia. I live in West Michigan with my husband of 14 years and my 10 year old daughter plus two house cats that think they own us.

I have worked part time on eBay since December of 2000. I also started selling on Amazon a few years back.

In 2004 I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and have gone from the relapsing remitting version to secondary progressive.

Daily fatigue is my main nemesis at the time. My brain being like Play-Doh is another major problem.

About 9 months ago I did some balance training with the Wii Fit through a local college and I could never have anticipated how successful that would be in helping me regain balance.

I know that, realistically, expecting that I can do this daily is not likely, but I will do my best!

Weight has been a struggled for me for the past 34 years (and I'm only 36!). :D

I'm glad to find a group for people that use gaming since I'm just not an organized exercise kind of gal. I look forward to getting to know you!

Hi everyone! Starting the new year off right by getting on track with my weight and health. I was so excited to see this group - I love gaming, although I'm a little picky. I've been obsessed with DCUO on PS3 for the past year. I have other games -- Skyrim (not too much of a fan), Civilization (love it), Just Dance 2 for the Wii, Active 2 (PS3), Rock Band... my games are kind of all over the place, I guess.

Anyone looking for an accountability/motivation buddy to do this with? I need to lose about 40-50 lbs and would love someone to help kick my ass into gear (and vice versa). :-)

Happy new year!
