I have the Jillian Michaels Fitness Adventure and I had the same tracking problems and just gave up on it! There are so many great Kinect games! You might consider joining the Kinect to Fitness and Health team. There are lots of reviews and opinions from others that you would find helpful. I love the Kinect Adventures game that came with the Kinect. I especially love the obstacle course game, if I keep jumping between levels to make the transition faster, I get a great cardio workout! I have Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012 (that's the newest version) and I get a good workout from it. It has a variety of workouts, classes (dance), and fun activities. I have Dance Central 1 and Dance Central 2 and would probably like them more if I got more practice in and could learn to dance better. lol Lots of people really love the dance games! I have Kinect Sports 1 and Kinect Sports 2 and enjoy them both. I especially love the volleyball on KS1 and the tennis on KS2! Fruit Ninja is a fun little game and a good upper body workout. It is very popular and the kids would probably enjoy it also! There are just so many games and it depends on your interests and goals. I try to switch them around so I don't get bored! Although, I have been playing Skyrim too much lately and need to get in some more Kinect exercise!!! Also, with an xbox live membership (I think you need the gold membership?), you can add friends and compete with others on the leader boards. I find that motivating. Good luck to you. Stay in touch! And consider the Kinect team! I enjoy both teams a great deal!

thank you. I have a kinect and a jillian michels game. I can't remember what it is called. I don't like it because it doesn't seem to sense my movements and won't let me go on in the game. But I still do the circuits because even though it doesn't pick up my movements I can still go on to the next exercise. I like to play kinect sports with my kids but that doesn't always get my heart pumping and I've conquered kinect adventures but will still play it when I get bored. What other games do you suggest?

Welcome to the team! What games do you like to play? Sounds like you keep pretty busy with the kids and work? Maybe you can plan for some activities during the summer that help support the good eating and exercising habits you are working on now? Do you have a Wii or Kinect? That's could be a great way to fit in exercise year round and have fun with your kids at the same time! Good luck to you!

hi my name is Janell. I'm from Minnesota and I've been at spark people for almost a month. I'd like to loose 50 lbs by the end of this year. I haven't lost much weight yet but I have lost inches. I think I'm still eating too much or else I'm gaining muscle and not loosing the weight. I'm married and have three children ages 9, 7 and 4. I work at an elementary school as a special education para professional. I can't wait till summer when I don't have to work but I'm scared I won't be able to keep my will power.
