Hello again- sorry did not check in yesterday as I told myself I would do. Got so busy and little grand-daughter came over a little earlier than expected. Here I was all excited because I got the wii walk it out and wanted to use it for first time before she got here. Sunday morning and it will be my start today.. We are going to have nice weather for next few days so am looking forward to it and getting things done. Working on the basement a little at a time to get it all the way we want it. Through the years stuff kind of stacks up and I used to, and hubby did too- work lots of overtime and to tired to tackle it all. We finally decided to do it bit by bit and like weight loss got there over time, so will reverse in time.
I am not really into sports that much -meaning baseball and football but oh my goodness Wisconsin really showed the other teams what they are made of. I can watch baseball more so than football. With seven brothers that went out for sports through the years that is all anyone ever talked about ha!
So I better get my day started-read sunday paper and get moving to all my chores I have lined up. Have a nice day-keep in touch.
I should tell you of Wisconsin weather since you told me about your weather. We are in fall season and usually cool being first part of october-we are to have warm next few days-- sunday through thursday in low 70's . By now we are usually in 50's or low 60's now. Last year in winter season we had so much snow it was unreal and cold cold cold temperatures. This summer has been really hot at times- like being in the 90's is just miserable weather for me. I love fall and spring seasons. In nutshell Wisconsin has four sesasons and can go from one extreme to another. Off I go to get something done. emoticon

HI Team! My name is Nancee, I am a Wii Fit owner and I thought this would be a great team to be on to keep me accountable for using it on a regular basis. I really need to get my butt moving and can't give up.

Thanks

emoticon Mandi and Rhonda.

Mandi .... I am the same, returning to sparks in an effort relose the losses I made previously & then some. I agree with you that short term goals are the best motivators.

Rhonda .... working out every day is great. I wish I could say the same. I have never been very exercise conscious person (possibly due to having such severe asthma as a child through to present) so it takes me quite a lot of effort to exercise. And because I still get asthma I tire easily & so can find lots of 'good' excuses emoticon

BUT NO MORE!!!!! With the Wii Fit I can at least do the yoga on my more off days.

New to the team, but I have been at Spark since May. I use my Wii every single day love it. I don't have a lot of the games Ea Active and Ea Active more workouts, Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus, and of course Wii Sport. Next week I am buying Walk it Out or Golds Gym right now I am leaning towards Walk it Out. I need to shake up my routine. I have some mobility issues because of MS, yet when I started using Wii Fit 3 years ago I started getting more mobile and flexible. I love it! I look forward to participating with this team. My weightloss so far and been so slow and frustrating scale wise. I have lost 18 inches in 3 months. I do free weights for strength training and also do a Leslie Sansone dvd nearly everyday.

Hi Mandi - welcome to the team. You have a start going and you may stumble -we all do and you didn't get overweight overnite so it won't come off overnite. One day at a time with lots of people supporting you. Good luck

Hi I'm Mandi..... I've restarted my diet/fitness program, using SP (again) and I've had a great first 10 days! I use Wii Fit Plus, Zumba, and Dance Dance Revolution.

I have a lot of weight to lose, but I'm focused on short term goals. I'm really just trying to change my habits and lifestyle and have amazing success!!!

I have 2 kids, my oldest is almost 12, and overweight. I am trying to get her on the Wii as often as possible and out doors as well... I am hoping to be an example to her!

Progress....Not Perfection!!!

Its time to stop Yo-Yo Dieting and Make a Lifestyle Change!!!

Morning Betty, I am the same in that I have only bee overseas the once. I went to England for 6 weeks in January of 2009 for my sons wedding to a beautiful English girl. I have travelled to Northern Queensland twice also which was so exciting but I could never live there because of the humidity. I could move to England any day.

I live in Bendigo which is only a couple of miles from the geographical centre of Victoria. We have extremely hot summers and nice winters .... In the central part of the region, towns such as Bendigo experience average annual temperature maximums of 20.4C, with a mean of about 28C during summer and 13C in winter. The average annual minimum temperature in these areas is 9C, with an average minimum of 12-14C in summer and 4C during winter.

cheers from Sharyn,

Here I am in Wisconsin and have been on one big trip in my life and that was to Jamaica when my daughter got married last year. Would love to hear about Australia and your wonderful family. Have a good day-- mid week and I have so much to do today.. Betty

hiya Wakeup ..... Is late morning here right now on Wednesday. I have 3 grandsons in Melbourne & 1 (the youngest) in London. As one would expect I don't get to the youngest very often at all but hopefully that will change after Christmas when my son brings his family back to live in Australia. My other 3 are ages 7, 5, & 3 and can be quite the handful at times but oh so loveable.

I have hit a brick wall with the weight loss at the moment & that was why I got me a Wii so I can keep exercising thru the heat of our hot summer under an aircon.

cheers from Sharyn,

I am getting the walk it off dvd thanks to one of our team members- ordered it from Amazon today so looking forward to using it.
Have good evening and day tomorrow and I would love to hear all about those darlings- ages 3-4 oh such fun. I have a little grand-daughter that is 16 months old and she keeps us on our toes.

I love my new Wii & log on as often as possible. I love the tennis (which in real life I loath). Being away for 2 days a week has not proved a problem because I find that running 3 little boys is great exercise too

Hi everyone, for those of you don't know me... my name is Sharyn; I live in Central Victoria, Australia; I am a mum of 3 & have 4 extremely beautiful grandsons. By October 2010 my weight had sky rocketed to 102 Kgs (225 pounds) and I could barely walk due to arthiritis in one of my knees. So I made a decision that it was FAR more important to keep walking than end up in a wheel chair while I waited for a knee replacement..... got off my duff & joined the Tony Ferguson Weight Loss program. He uses meal replacements as well exercise and retraining your brain to eat sensibly. It worked for me..... I lost 17 kgs (37.5) in 6 months. But then I hit the proverbial brick wall due to all sorts of reasons, the main one being a bout of depression. Anyway ...... I am back on the road to losing another 15 kg and this is why I rejoined Sparks. For the like minded socializing. I was so thrilled when Terri told me that this team is still going, I came straight to Sparks & found you all once again.

I'm new to the team. I have recently just started really using my Wii. I love Walk it Out and ExerBeat. I usually do ExerBeat about 40-45 and Walk it Out around 30 min.

hello, my name is Tammy and I just got my wii a couple of months ago.. I love playing the games on it and have been looking for a good fitness game.. I found one that I think will be great.. but when I tried to use it... my 2 1/2 yr. old must have put something in it..... :(

Now I have to get it fixed before I can really start anything but .. I was wondering if anyone knows how I find out if the company will fix it for free or if they will charge me????

Its driving me crazy.... since the Y doesnt offer child care on the weekend the wii is what I was counting on for my weekend fitness goals... Help anyone!

Hey All,
Similar to Melissa, I just received the Wii Fit for my 22 birthday. It was a belated gift so I just set it up last week. I love it! I have just been trying to get into the habit of doing the body tests daily and have done really well with that. I hope to keep playing everyday, and maybe add the Zumba game to my collection. I am really excited to keep it up and have a little game time to destress. I look forward to reading more from the community and meeting our challenges :D

Hello everyone! My name is Melissa and I'm 22 years old from North Carolina. I got my wii for my 21st birthday and I absolutely love it. All my games (except for my brother's Super Mario game) is some type of dance/exercise game. I have Just Dance, Just Dance 2, Just Dance Summer Party, Michael Jackson Experience, Zumba Fitness and a Gold's Gym Workout Game. I would be completely lost without my wii. I'm a wii addict! =)

Hi Angel- you will be welcome here and this group of people are so supportive and will keep in touch with you. Lots of good luck to you in the future, Take small steps before the big ones. I have done it just jumping in before and didn't make it. I am back with new vigor--maybe it is older and wiser too. emoticon emoticon

Hi, my name is Angel. I'm new here and really looking forward to losing the weight for good! I'm new to SP but not knew to "trying" to lose weight. I cannot do it alone. I have tried and then life gets in the way and I put my work outs on the back burner. That cannot happen anymore! I need to put MY health first or I will not be able to be there for the people that I love and need to be here for!

Thank you all for having me and for sharing this journey with me!

I am not really a newbie-- it is the return of an oldie that needs to get it together and can't do it any more alone. What is exerbeat? I love my wii but havent used it in awhile and wouldn't you know it the battery is dead so have to replace to get it going again. Good luck to all I know I need it!

Hi Kristen! Welcome to the team! I love Walk it Out and Dance2 and Summer Dance Party. I also do we cheer. If you can stand getting past the teeny graphics, the music is good and the exercise is really good, too. And the calorie burn is a lot higher than the Wii Fit, but I still love the Yoga for Wii Fit.

Im just using the Wii Fit right now, but i'm getting kind of tired of that and would like to try some new Wii fitness games. If anyone has any ideas, let me know!

Thanks for welcoming me :D
