Jeff - I don't really know what to recommend, but I'm thinking about getting the EA Active. From what others say, it sounds like a pretty good workout. You could probably do all the exercises for now that don't require a balance board.

Good luck everyone!

I joined a couple weeks ago, but have been lax about introducing myself.

My oldest son has loaned me his Wii Fit to use. I'm not getting on it every day, yet. But, I'm having fun playing some of the games and challenging myself to do better.

Figure out where you want to be, then work backwards from there.

Hello, I just picked up my Wii this weekend and love it!!!

I have been on Sparkpeople for 3 weeks and have been doing pretty good, losing 18lbs so far. Now I NEED to add exercise to my list of new habits.

I can't find Wii Fit Plus (balance board) anywhere..... So, I'm just using the regular Wii. Can anyone recommend a game/routine for me, until I can locate a board?

Jeff

I like my WiiFit, but agree about the stopping and going. I really want to get the EA Active everyone's talking about. It sounds like a more intense workout, which is what I'm looking for. The WiiFit is fun, but I would like to take-up the intensity some.

I am new to the group. We got a Wii and Wii fit and Resort for Christmas. I have been enjoying the resort games and find that I get a fair workout with some of them. The Wii Fit is good for some things but I get frustrated at having my workout broken up all the time by showing me where I ranked etc. I have been doing the free step and free run while I watch TV which is a lot better than sitting on the couch!

Hi everyone,
I'm Lisa. I am on my way to Onederland! (well, thats the plan anyway's hehe)

I just started my journey yesterday. Took this past week to get myself geared upo and also bought a Nintendo Wii/balance board etc (sister got me hooked while on vacation)

I weighed in at 275lbs yeaterday emoticon so I got my work cut out for me. My goal is to lose 100lbs (no set time frame)

I'm hoping that using my Wii will help me stay motivated. Exercise has also been my biggest hurdle and when I lose my motivation to exercise...every other part of my diet goes flying out the window.

So, here's to Onederland and the hopes that one day I will finally reach my weightloss goal.

Looking forward to chatting with other Wii members.

You have to stay in shape.
My mother started walking five miles a day when she was 60.
She's 97 now and we have no idea where she is.

Hello Hello :) My name is Natasha and I live in Vancouver, BC. I got a wii/wii balance board/wii fit plus for Christmas and started using them all around the beginning of January. I've lost a few pounds with it so far and hope to keep that going!

My bf is a gym rat lol but I just can't get myself there like him...I don't enjoy it like he does though I kinda hope maybe I'll get myself back there someday but for now I'm going to see how far I can go with at home things. I really want to get some new exercise games when I can which I'm very excited about.

I'm so happy to be here :) there are plenty of groups for the wii but it's hard to find active groups in any category and I'm so glad to have found this one!

Hi! I was welcoming a member to another team when I saw that she was a member of THIS team! My dad got us a Wii for Christmas- yay!- and my family has been having a FUN time playing it!

For me, I know there's a lot more I could be doing on it, so maybe this will give me the jump start I need!

My name is Tracy, and I live in PA, near Hershey. I love to eat and hate to exercise, but the Wii is definitely changing all that (well, the exercise part, anyway! LOL).

Hi everyone. I don't have a Wii yet. I live in California and the whole state is out of Wiis. My husband then called all up and down the coast. He called Reno, and even Albuquerque, Nm. No Wiis. So I ordered my Wii online at Amazon. It will be here tomorrow. I am soooo excited. I can't wait to join in all the challenges. Thanks for being here.

I've been part of Sparkpeople for quite a while, not as active as I should be, but I only got the Wii recently. DH bought it for me so I could exercise with it. Silly me, when he suggested it as a gift and why he thought he should buy it, instead of feeling put out like any good wife, I agreed and told him to go for it.

He bought the sports version at first because he's such a late shopper that he couldn't get the balance board and Fit Plus system like he wanted, but DS found it about a week ago and got that for us. Now to keep the guys out of the livingroom and off the tv when I get home from work so I can work out.

Between the guys interference and a few migraines lately, I've only worked out a couple of times, but they were long workouts because I lost track of time. It's fun and I look forward to more of it.

Hello! I joined SP late December but have had my Wii for awhile. I didn't play the Wii Fit for ages as I got bored of it. However Christmas revitalized me when I got Wii Fit Plus which is completely more awesome than the original and so worth the price. Then this week I treated myself to EA SPorts and I am on the 30 day challenge. I have done Days 1 and 2, with today being a rest day. I LOVE IT! It is a real challenge for me doing strength training but I feel great doing it! Highly recommend it. Also want to get the EA More Sports... and also Just Dance. Afraid to admit it, but I'm hooked! My gym membership is now only for my Yoga class... ooopppssss... :)

I bought my daughter wii fit plus for Christmas. She really enjoys the games but I never thought I would use it. I really love doing the games and I know it may sound crazy but I like the personal trainer. I am not able to afford to go to the gym or pay a personal trainer. So this is the next best thing!! I love it and it is so easy to do. The scores only make me want ot do it more I guess im kind of competitive.

Hello everyone! I am new to the team but not new to my Wii or Spark. I got it last March with the Wii fit. I'm not gonna lie I didn't use it all that much until December of this year when I got some new games to play with it. Now I am using it almost daily.

I got EA sports active more workouts and have been doing the 6 week challenge, which I love. I also have Wii fit plus which I do like better then the original. I did get the biggest loser but I haven't tried it out yet (can you tell I got money for christmas :)). I also got Just Dance which is super fun active party game. Hmmmm I think that is it.

Looking forward to meeting you all. Have a great Friday!

Tomorrow I am returning the Wii Fit I borrowed from a friend. I'm going to check some of the trade-in places today and see if they have a game and board I can buy on the cheap. I'm in the market for any of the games, really, but am quite comfortable already with the original Fit...so we'll see!

Hi, My name is Amanda. I've been on Spark for a little over a month and have had the Wii (Fit) for about the same amount of time. Currently I only have Wii Fit Plus & Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2009 (which isn't very good, I've only tried it once or twice) so I am also looking for some new, fun fitness games to add to what I've got!

I'm new to this team but I've been on SP for over a year. This past Christmas I got a Wii with EA active and Wii Fit Plus. I am not too good at it yet but it is a lot of fun.
Take a look at my Spark Page. I'd love to find someone local (Northern VA) to talk with. I've been doing well on my weight loss until recently but I seem to be at one of those deadly plateaus. This is the tough part.

Hi there.

I joined the site almost a week ago. I tried to find a group for Wii users, but only found Wii Bowling. Someone posted this link on a message board for me...and I followed it!

So...my SparkPage explains everything about me.

I just started using the Wii...Fit original. I need to do more to unlock more activities ;o) I'm already planning my workout for tomorrow.

Looking forward to everything going on in here.

Hi everyone. I'm new here but an old timer on Spark. I got my Wii last November and love it. I try to do yoga or other activity every day. I'm not much of a gamer at all and all my Wii "games" have to do with fitness. I absolutely despise the gym so the Wii is perfect for me. I'm also very deep in Weight Watchers since this past New Year's Eve. I'm a Lifetime member but over my weight now so I have to pay when I weigh in. But that is just the motivation I need to stay on track.

Looking forward to the journey with you all!

Hi Everyone!
I'm a Newbie (hehe, that's the name of one of my cats!) of this team but certainly not spark :)

I got my boyfriend a wii about 2 years ago, we have loads of fun with it and since I'm back on the bandwagon for losing weight and getting in shape, I thought I might as well have fun doing it! My wii fit was actually just delivered to my apartment about an hour ago so I get to hook it up tonight and play away the calories! :-D

I look forward to meeting you all!!

Hi, I'm a newbie to both this group and the SP website, but I've had my Wii fit for about a year. I love it, but that hasn't meant I've been any better about using it than I have any of my other exercise equipment! :( For Christmas I got some of the new releases (I did ask for them! :) )- fit plus, active more workouts, dance, and biggest loser. I vow to have the plastic wrap off of each and every one of them by the end of the week! :) Anyone have a favorite? Maybe there is already a topic about that... I'll look for it. Variety seems to help me stay motivated, but no reason to save the best for last if there is a clear favorite out there. emoticon

Hi all-Married mom of 4 energetic boys here! (18yrs down to 6yrs)We got a Wii for Christmas & just got the Wii fit plus yesterday. I really like it! My job as a para moved from full-time at school to part-time (thankfully!) so I hope I can find time to play now so we all don't fight over it, lol. Also got the Biggest Loser game with the package so I'm going to see what that is about too. Love it so far!! Happy Wii-ing! :)

I have the Wii Fit and I don't use it nearly as much as I can, so I joined this team to help keep me mindful of using it.

I have Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus. I do not use it like I should so I am joining this group for hopefully some motivation and challenges to keep me going.

Hello, My name is Lauren. I have a goal to lose 30 pounds before I turn 30 in October. I have Wii Fit Plus and EA active. I also have Mario and Sonic both winter and summer games and wii sports resort that I like to mix in because it's a lot of movement with the controllers. Just 'cause they are not in the 'fit' line doesn't mean they aren't burning calories. emoticon

Hi, We bought a Wii for the family for the holidays and I bought myself a Wii Fit Plus as my special gift. I absolutely love it! I have 7 kids total (6 of which are boys) so I need a way to build up my energy levels. I also have my own wedding coming up at the end of the year and I want to be as fit as I can for that. I have over 100 lbs to lose total and would love to hear from others who are on a similar path. I'm excited to be here!

We got our Wii and Wii fit plus for Christmas. I am so happy with it. I am excited that I found this group. I want to hear what everyone is doing with the wii and how they figure the calories for bowling, baseball and tennis.

Hello! I'm Chara! I've been Sparking for a while, but just joining the Wii group.
I used WiiFit for a while, now I have WiiFit Plus and I love the improvements. My favourite new trainer is the Rhythm Kung Fu. How fun!

We just got the new Super Mario, too, and I love it!!

Hi everyone!

I'm Lisa. I'm not new to sparkpeople, but I'm new to the group.

I just got my wii yesterday and I'm loving it! I've been testing out the different activities on wii fit plus and I have to say I'm addicted to the hula hooping!! :) The jogging is really neat too, I think I'm going to really enjoy this!

I also bought the biggest loser game, but I'm waiting for it to get to me in the mail... looks like it'll be a tough one! Has anyone here tried it out?

Hi, I'm Sheri. Not new to spark just a re-starter. I had my wii a little over a year and this year for Christmas my DH gave me the wii fit plus. Between walking with my friend and the wii I hope to lose 30 lbs and keep it off.
So a question for everyone...what does the wii age mean?

Hello!

I'm new to the team and to Sparkpeople as well. I'm stuck inside during the winter due to the cold so I thought that making use of the stuff in the house (the wii fit that's been gathering dust for a year emoticon ) might be helpful in keeping on track.

Hi! I'm new here too. My name is Donna, and we just got a Wii for Christmas (surprise gift from my husband - even I didn't know!) We don't have the balance board yet, or Wii Fit, but we're having fun nonetheless. So far I've only used the Wii Sports, SportsResort, and set myself up on the My Fitness Coach (just the set up on that alone is a workout!) I do have other games for myself once I can get a balance board - Biggest Loser game & WaterSports.

I'm looking foward to learning from you Wii Experts here. Can't wait to really know what I'm doing on there. LOL

I just decided to check out SP yesterday. We got a Wii in Sept. Do not have the Wii Fit, but I have pre-ordered the Walk it Out "game" to begin with as I have had problems with joints and don't want to overdo and then quit (again). emoticon Until I get the game, I plan to try to do something from the sports game every day.

Hi, I just got the wiifit plus for Christmas. I already had wii ea active which was a birthday gift to myself. I must admit I love the wiifit balance board. I don't have to use scales anymore and I really enjoy myself when I train. Who would have thought I would ever say I love to train..LOL.

My sister introduced my husband and I to the Wii and we unwillingly bought it for Christmas for our children. We had no desire to buy this but due to a family tragedy that occurred this summer with my niece passing (after having a seizure while swimming) my sister wanted to get us this game that my niece used to love to play as a game that our family and my girls could play and be able to think of my niece with good memories. So, after much debate we bought the Wii and she bought the game. Well, I am so glad that she did!! She has introduced our family to a time of fun and a time of fitness together. We have now added the Wii Fit and my favorite game so far is the Just Dance game-- tons of fun and great cardio along with upper arm and back workout!

Hi,My hubby and I just gave each other the wii and Wii fit plus for Christmas. I am loving it so far. It is the only exercise I have actually ever really looked forward to doing! I am hoping to add more walking in besides doing this and with eating a little healthier, maybe drop those pounds. Its a little startling having your tv blimp up your Mii and tell you that you're obese! emoticon BUT I lost 1.3 pounds between Christmas and new years, so if I start eating better now, I think I will be ok. I am happy to find this team and look forward to doing challenges with you! Happy and Healthy New year to you all! emoticon

Slow and steady wins the race!

Am so excited to have a wii to play with now. It's not mine but it's up for my own use so I plan to buy a couple of ACTIVE games, any suggestions?

Been playing with my family every day since we got it on Wednesday, so much fun. We play alot of bowling but I really enjoy the tennis but I can only play on my own (I'm a little aggressive with the wiimote but, boy does it get me sweating same with boxing).

Hello.

My mom decided we should get the wii system including wii fit. So, we bought them yesterday. Set it up today and did some tests, playing around. Is fun so far.

The funny part was the wii age thing. Mom and sister both ended up having ages much older than they actually are. Mine was 3 years younger.

I plan on having Gastric Bypass soon so I would love to find more games that I can play to keep me active until I can get to a gym! Thanks everyone! I hope everyone is starting off there NEW YEAR as planned!
