Hello everyone! My name is Nicole. I live in Colorado and have been on Spark previously, but wanted to give this another shot.

I have had a weight issue since I was a 5th grader and I am ready to change. I was a fat kid, a fat adult, a fat bride and a fat pregnant person. I DO NOT WANT TO BE A FAT MOM!

I want to be able to enjoy spending time and doing fun things with my husband and daughter...not obsessing if everyone is looking at me. I want to be the fun Mom that plays with her kids daily.

Teaching my daughter to be healthy is my main reason for change, I don't want her to have to deal with all of the weight issues I have dealt with all of my life. Wouldn't it be a glorious gift to give?...a normal, healthy life.

    Hi! Thank you for stopping by my blog. I do like the Kinect. In my opinion, it's WAY better than Wii. With the Wii, all you really have to be moving is the controller. So, for instance, I could sit on my couch and bowl a strike just by flicking my wrist the right way. With Kinect, it monitors the movement of your whole body, so you can't get away with just moving your wrist! LOL

    I will be honest, though; I used it a lot when we first got it, then went through a streak where I seldom used it, and now I'm using it again as a way to try to get more active. We don't have children, though. That probably affects how often the Kinect gets used. I know usually my nieces and nephews have fun playing with it when they come over.

    If I were you, I would also check into what games are available for it and see if those seem interesting to you and/or your children. I'm satisfied with just a few games because I'm not a huge gamer, but it's always a good idea to check out what games are out for a system before investing in one.

    Another thing I like about the Xbox Kinect is that, obviously, it can be used as just a regular Xbox too, so my husband can play his more traditional controller games. That way, we know it's being used, even if I go through a streak when I'm not using the Kinect very much. It's also kinda cool that you an stream online content through your xbox, such as Netflix. We used it in that capacity for awhile, until we ended up getting a Roku.

    Anyway, I probably just gave you far more information than you were looking for! emoticon
