Hi Linda, Thanks so much for the info! Wow a 20lb kettlebell? I don't know if I could lift that! I started with the 5lb. I think I could manage the 10lb now for some of the moves. It would actually be my Grandchildren I'd be doing Wii with! And yes they would think Grandma is very very silly! LOL And it does sound like good quality time and they love dancing and jumping around (2 yrs old & 4 yrs old). It might even tire them out a bit! Thank you again and I am going to look into getting the Wii. I try to do the same thing, switch up the exercising to keep from getting bored. I also do an indoor walking DVD and I am now up to 450 crunches a week! Never thought I'd say that! Gotta have some fun doing this! Take care!

There is a song on a show that my Grand Kids watch and I think it applies : "Keep trying, keep trying, don't give up, never give up" I intend to keep trying and I will never give up till I reach my goal!

Nothing happens overnight. Remember one pound lost is one pound closer to your goal.

Get up every morning, take a deep breath & make it the best day that you possibly can.

With you all in spirit everyday.....Gery

Hi Cricket:

Yes, I have the Kettleball too emoticon , but I think I did too much one morning with the 20 lb ball, so my back had spasm, so I laid off it and started to do the Wii. But the Kettlebell gets the entire body parts all at once. I just try to switch it up and keep myself interested.

Go to Amazon (best bargin) to get your attachments (for your leg and arm bands so you can do other exercises like the Wii Active (purchased separately), this got jogging, regular squats, overhead presses, lunges, situp, etc (overall body workout). This one uses emoticon or

Get the Wii, youand your children will love it. This is where you get to spend a nice amount of quality time with them (as they say Mom is acting silly) emoticon . It comes with a disk, that has tennis, golf, baseball, bowling and boxing (which really gets your cardio up). Enjoy.... emoticon

I would love to get Wii ! It looks like a lot of fun! I think it is great for kids too, they aren't just sitting playing video games, they are up and moving! I think I will look into getting one. Sounds like you are having fun and getting a good workout. I have been using the kettlebell which is a lot of fun and you really sweat! Thanks for the Wii tips ! Happy exercising! emoticon

I find that exercising with the Wii Active, as well as GOLD GYM and Wii Sports...you really get a workout. Boxing, is terrific!!

My 10 minutes end up after 30 minutes and that's a plus!

Have a great day and remember you have to MOVE to LOSE!
