Yeah for you! 5 yrs younger and standing balanced is GREAT! I don;t think I stand balanced at all. LOL I havn't even tried our Kinetic Game yet. I need to get on the ball with that.

I have to remember to stop and think.

I joined one of the Wii Fit teams! I think it's called Wii Fit Challenge, but you can go to my SparkPage to look. I'm just joining them for Wii Fit support & nothing else - I'm SO using them! lol

Yeah, you got your Wii in! I knew you would love it! I love mine! It is such a blast and you really do sweat! I bet the boys are really happy you bought it. My kiddos enjoy it a bunch too! We will have to start a challenge sometime soon. That is a good motivator to exercise...

I just got the Kinetic game with the eyetoy for my ps2. It doesn't have as many options like the iFit from Wii but its alot of fun. I personally did not use it today but my kids love doing it. Especially my oldest son Thomas. Thomas is the gamer that does not like going on hikes and such when warmer weather hits. I am so happy to have something that he is interested in and will give him a great workout. He must have played the game for over an hour today working up a sweat all the while. I can not tell you how happy it makes me. I would much rather have the Wii game system BUT the extra $$$ isn;t there for me to spend on it. The Kinetic game is working until I can get the Wii. I might look into the other yourself fitness for the ps2. I'm glad we had that option. :) Video game fitness rocks!

oooo I'm jealous! I've been wanting the Wii Fit, but haven't gotten one yet. Good to know it's worth the money. I'll have to put a bug in my hubby's ear that I want one :)

Paula, that sounds awesome! I have a Wii myself (Christmas present! Lucky me!) and have been wanting to buy the Fit, but the price tag is too much for me right now. But the family I work for also have a Wii (I am a nanny) and the dad was asking me what I thought about the Fit. He may get it so he can challenge me (we have been having a contest to see who can lose more weight by the start of classes in the fall). But I'm sure you'll have fun1

I know I'll be the least fit person in our house as well, but it sounds too fun to resist! Maybe we can get a wii fit challenge going on here after I get mine? Anyone with a wii fit up for that?

I have been wanting one of those. We got the Wii for Christmas and there are lots of the games that get you moving, but it would be nice to get one specifically for exercise and training. I get more competitive when it shows how you compare to others in the family. No doubt, I will be the least fit in my family, but that will give me a goal!

It's supposed to get here June 3-5 sometime. I'm having it delivered to my office - I hate it when they leave stuff on the front porch! Only thing I have to worry about at the office is someone opening it up & playing with it! They're such little boys....lol

Hi there! My hubby and I have a Wii (I'm Carrie by the way, hee hee). I am not a big fan of video games but the Wii Fit is exactly my type of game, lol. Anything fitness is gonna attract my attention. We bought the Wii Fit game a couple days ago and it is totally awesome! It does make you sweat and you don't get bored at all cause you have so many different choices of games. We have our entire family of six stored in the system. And, it keeps tract of who has the best score in each activity too. I love how it tracts how long you have been doing it too. Did you know you are suppose to log in everyday and you do a body test and then training. It is a blast and the kids love it....perfect for family time! Best "VIDEO GAME" I have ever bought. The Wii is great for being active while playing a video game! I have enjoyed playing the Wii Fit instead of always doing exercise videos everyday. Not boring at all!

It does sound like fun! The kids have been wanting a Wii forever BUT we have a Ps2. I did however "box" Carrie when they bought thier kids a Wii and WOW I was so out of breath! Great game system! I have looked into somethings that the Ps2 offers. They have a game called Yourself Fittness and Kinetic that have great reviews with the use of an eye toy. Also there is a thing called Gamercise you can get where you can play your normal game but you have to use a form of exercise equipment and keep it moving so that you will still be able to play your game. When you go under a certain amount of stepping or cycling then your game controller will not work. This is compatable with most game systems. I find this one to be something I might get in the near future. Here is a link that explains this gamercise thing more.

I think it sounds really fun, and I'm trying to convince Gary to get me one. :) We've got a Wii, but I never play. Not much into video games, but it looks fun!

I want one of these thing SO BAD it's not even funny... maybe I'll give into DH's obsession with getting a wii finally so I can have the fit too. I'm glad to get some feedback on it - it looks really cool on tv, but you can't trust tv!

So I've always been a fan of video games, hence the wide back end I have. Anyway, today Nintendo released the Wii Fit! Holy CRUD! it's HARD! First, it tells me I'm fat (duh!) No, the board didn't ACTUALLY groan under my weight, but if it could be programmed that way, I'm sure it would! Anyway, there's yoga, strength training, aerobic exercise, and balance exercises. For each minute you do, you get a point. After so many points, new exercises and games are available. There's a track one (very short) but I ran it....TWICE! Okay, I Jogged, but still! Who would've thought a video game could make you sweat like that!
