Hi everyone. I'm Michelle and just recently bought an XBox with kinect. The XBox was for my hubby and the kinect more for the kids and I. I recently bought the Your Shape game and am getting better at it. I'm still learning about everything that it offers and how things work but will get there. Excited to meet new people and make friends.

Hi, we as a family got the Kinect for Christmas. I didn't know what to expect because I thought the Wii was pretty cool as far as technology. Boy was I surprised! The Kinect blows it out of the water!! I love it. My daughter has been playing Kinectimals for several days, but I tried the Adventure game and it was the best...I am soo sore from playing that for an hour. I have one of the fitness games my husband bought me and I cannot wait to try it out. This is the coolest game gear!

Hi!! So my son got Kinect for Xmas and I got the Biggest Loser for myself. I haven't had the chance to use it and I am hoping today will be the first day! I am excited! Even though I injured my arm and have no mobility in my right arm...lets see if it gives me a hard time.

Hi, I'm Nicole and my husband just gave me Kinect for my 30th b-day. I've been sick and haven't had the energy to use it much yet but I am so excited! He also gave me the EASports active 2 Personal trainer which I am really excited about. I made it through about 1/2 of the first workout before I had to stop from exhaustion...but once I' start feeling better look out! I can't wait to go through the program. It has a 3 week sort of ease into it plan and a 9 week personal trainer plan that I am hoping will kick off the new year and weight loss really well. I am going to accompany this work out with the 30 day Biggest Loser jump start diet and am really excited to see what 2011 will bring. (or what I can leave behind!!)

I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.

Hi Everyone! I'm Alicia, lost 20 pounds on spark last year then trailed off towards the end of the year. Stepping back in for the New Year! Santa brought us the Kinect, went and bought Your Shape today at Best Buy for 39$!!! Played for about 45 min. Lots of fun. I did two personal training sessions and had a good sweat on! I had my hrm on, but with it being my first time and lots of practice moves, it didn't work too well. My hrm said 500cal and the kinect said 150, lol. I'm excited for more workouts! We also have sports which is tons of fun! Love playing party mode with all 4 of us. Dance Central, which I got for free on black friday!!! Lots of fun, haven't played as much as I'd like, but the kids go back to school tomorrow, so the xbox is mine for the days. The kids really like playing the games, they were even having a blast with your shape today.

Hi! I'm Astrid, and we got the Kinect for Christmas. We have Adventures (which is awesome), Dance Central (loving the workout mode!), Your Shape Evolved (totally in love, though my legs are dying from the lunges!), Party in Motion (haven't played it much yet), and Kinectimals (so stinking cute I can hardly handle it).

I love SP! Need to lose about 10 lbs to get back to my happy place, and I think kinect will help!

emoticon Hello fellow Kinecters! My name is Lisa, I'm 39 years old, SAHM of two girls ages 4 and 8 and wife to Jim for 12 years. We got XBox 360 Kinect for Christmas. This is our family's first gaming system (well, not if you include my husband's old Super Nintendo LOL!). We only have one Kinect game so far, Kinect Adventures. My 8 year old loves it and I love that it will keep her active during the winter months. I am uncertain of which 'fitness' games to purchase next for the Kinect. Also hoping to get the games at a lower price soon. I know it is so new, that the prices won't fall too quickly. I must say that when the Wii came out I really wanted it, but never told my husband that. Now, I am so glad we held out for the Kinect. Looking forward to sharing my experiences with you all and hearing about your experiences with it as well.

~Lisa~

1. Drink 6-8 oz glasses of water

Hello everyone! My name is Shirley, and I just did my first workout with the Kinect! we have Kinect Adventures, Harry Potter and I rented the Biggest Loser UW. We're just renting it right now to see how we like it before we buy it. The next one we're getting is the EA Active 2.

I'm usually up VERY early as I get up with my husband when he goes to work.
This is a new year and it's time for me to let the new me out!

Hey Everyone! My name is Kelly and I need support! I have decided to try to loose weight with Kinect while blogging about my workouts and keeping track of them here on SparkPeople. I just started a 9 week program on EA Active 2 while playing a few others, because I have sooo much fun. I need your support! Please come see my blog and let me know you stopped by, show some support or tell us about your experience.

Hi, my name is Stephanie and I've been a gamer since the first time I played Super Mario Brothers on the original Nintendo. I received the Kinect for Christmas, Dance Central for my birthday and yesterday I traded a few of my old games for Your Shape. I am looking forward to using the kinect as a way to help me loose weight in 2011.

I am glad to have found a spark team for the kinect. I am hoping to see some great challenges and meet some people to add to my friends list both on Sparkpeople and xbox live.

Here's to a new year with all of its possibilities! Happy Gaming!

Hello,
My name is Denine. I have never been into the xBox or any other gaming system since the N64 (does that date me) simply because the controllers got to darn confusing for me.

My mom go Wii and I really enjoyed that but my hubby is a MS guy and knew about the Kinect coming out so I waited and I waited and I waited... and finally, it arrived on my doorstep right before Thanksgiving (would have been earlier but we were out of the country.. lol) I love it! Really enjoy Dance Central and all the Adventure games. We only have a few of the games but they are a blast... and I can actually play without feeling like a complete fool!!

Anyhow, I love that fact that there is a Kinect team on SP, I have been wanting to find peeps to play online with!!

Yahoo... Starting the year off right!
Happy New Year everyone.

Annie, That was funny. I'm not a gamer either but my man is. He has worn off on me and I do watch a lot of games he plays. We have both the Xbox Kinect system and the Playstation Move. I really like the Mel B on the Move.....But I am enjoying all the games on Kinect.....I think we have too many right now!!!hehe

Hi! I am Karen, new to x-box but not to Spark. How do I set up my tag?

I am a mom of two beautiful girls and now working in a Human Genetics Laboratory. I lost the weight when I was a stay at home, but let the stress of going back to work get to me and now I am heavier than I was when I started. So I am getting back to basics and starting over again.

Hello, My name is Tiffany and I am very happy yo see a Kinect team here on Spark. Yesterday was the first day of Active2. We already have Kinect Your Shape,Kinect Sports, Kinect adventures,and Kinectimals.
I would really like to focus on either the Your Shape or the Active2. Having a hard time with size of my small living room. We already have the mounted wall camera too, But in one month I am moving and will have that problem solved. It;s just that squats and push ups are not counted correctly right now....

Hi! I don't have "Your Shape" but I do have Biggest Loser and I love it! I've done 3 workouts today one 24 mins, one 20, and the last 15 mins... (I never exercise this much without my elliptical or the gym but Biggest Loser and Kinect make it fun) Plus I like that I can use my own Stability ball and resistance bands and follow their routines or make my own... Plus there are challenges and those are really fun too!

Hi All!

Just bought my sons the XBox Kinect and the first two games we got are "Your Shape" and "KInect Adventures".

I am loving the Your Shape workouts and games. I've been kicking tail at Virtual Smash, LOL.

I'm going to surf around the board and see what everyone's feedback on "The Biggst Loser" is like.

Got the kinect for myself, for Christmas! Bought Dance Central, Zumba and of course the Adventures. All are great workouts! Broke a sweat on the basic 20 minute Zumba classes and can out-do the teenagers in Dance Central...lovin it! I really needed a way to be more active at home. My gamer tag is currently mom.

Hi! My name is Danielle. My fiance and I got a Kinect for Christmas. I have been playing Dance Central at least once a day for 60 minutes or more. I can already feel my soft squishiness firming up. Sorry if TMI :)

But I love the Kinect and Dance Central. We also have the Adenture game (obviously) and Kinect Sports. My fiance is a sports nut and he loves it, even as a fairly hardcore gamer.
I am certain that dancing is going to help me slim down to fit in my wedding dress by April. Oh yeah!

OH! My gamertag is musical06.

Hi, I'm Monique. We got the Kinect for Christmas, and I ran out and got the Your Shape today. Lots of fun and my son loves it too. I'm looking for something entertaining to keep me working out until my fitness classes start back up in January, and to do on days when I don't have classes. Having games that will help DS burn energy (he has an excess) is an added bonus!

My strength lies solely in my tenacity. ~ Louis Pasture

I'm getting a Kinect and Xbox for Christmas - can't WAIT to use it! It will be way more fun than a treadmill or even TurboJam - I get bored very easily and end up quitting most formal exercise routines. Hopefully this will feel like play emoticon
