wii fit is a good motivator

wii fit lets me keep track of weight and keeps a long term record. It lets me set goals. It reminds me I am obese, not just overweight. That's a medical term with insurance implications. I discovered insurance companies won't insure obese folks, unless you get the insurance through work. That was a wake up call. According to Dr. Oz, being obese is a more dangerous health risk than smoking! Wii fit makes moving fun. I can get moving and time flies by, I'm surprised at how fast I get my fitness minutes in, I find myself peeling off layers and really getting a workout. I like that it has lots of levels and lots of choices. Again I am starting as a beginner, that's okay, I know my skills will grow. Got 1o minutes of stretching and 30 minutes in on the wii today, that's 40 minutes today and 40 minutes yesterday! I like getting coins and awards on the wii, just like on spark. Now to start dealing with my portion size, always a challenge for me.
