Our Wii Fit Arrived!

05 February 2009
Well, our Wii Fit arrived today and I could hardly wait to check it out! It was interesting to say the least!

I am short and fat, big surprise. Okay, it didn't say fat but it said "That's obese" in a really happy voice. I also found out my Wii Fit Age is 55. That's a difference of +25 years. Good grief! I was less than thrilled but not overly surprised.

Tristen stepped up next. He came in as "At Risk For Being Overweight", again I was not surprised. I was impressed by his Wii Fit Age of 14, nearly perfect for his age.

Ashley was the only family member that came in at a healthy weight. The bummer for her was her Wii Fit Age of 31, not good for a 9 year old. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that she is not real coordinated.

So, our Wii Fit journey begins. I think it will be fun for the whole family. I am excited to see if it helps me to reach my weight loss goals. I am also hoping it helps keep the kids a bit more active. I will keep y'all updated on how we are doing.

SAVING is good.

Yesterday was day 10 on my Wii Fit. I still love it. Don't worry about the Wii Fit age. It will improve as you learn how to balance yourself on the board. The more you use it, the more fun it becomes because you unlock more games and exercises. :) Best of luck to you. I'll be back to find out how you're enjoying it.

haha my inlaws got the wii fit, and asked me if I wanted a turn...oh heeeeck no! not after it told my incredibly in shape, gym teaching, marathon running sister in law that she was overweight (it really is all her muscle, she had something like 11% body fat for real)
