Wii.. will it work for me?

So, Kent got me a Wii and a Wii fit for Christmas. I tested it out yesterday for the first time. I did my balance and it grabbed my height and weight and added it all up. My Wii Fit age is 39 years old.

Ahem, I am 26.

Yeah. It asked me if I tripped a lot when I walked. :X

So, I am going to work on getting that number down. And also, my weight number and my BMI (body mass index) number. I have 16 pounds to lose and 3 points on my BMI. I am in the "normal" range for my BMI, but just barely. And I do mean barely.

Kent and I have had a lot of fun playing the Wii together. It's our time to spend alone after the kids go to bed. We compete against each other and get all competitive. I usually beat Kent on most of the games our first time playing them. But he usually beats me after we play the game a time or two more.

The kids love the Wii. Jon Kent loves playing the basketball and Zoey likes the bowling. We need to get two more remotes so we can play all together at the same time. The kids would totally beat me at 100 pin bowling. I can't score well on that game at all. But Jon Kent and Zoey can get 95-99 almost every time.

I am hoping we all continue to enjoy the Wii together as a family. And I am hoping the Wii fit does me some good. Beach weather will be here before I know it and I am positive no one wants to see my current body in a bathing suit. I know I sure don't! ;X

I'm really loving my Wii Fit plus! I too just barely made it into the normal range. We love playing all the other games as a family!

Mario Kart is a really fun one for the whole family, justbe sure to purchase an extra wheel or even one for each of you! We have both Wii Fit and Active. We like Active a little better, for one it doesn't make derogatory comments to you. :)

We've had our Wii for over a year, and Doug and the kids still play it all the time. Their latest obsession is Mario Kart.

We have the Wii Fit too...it just hasn't been used much. I hope to rectify that situation soon. :)
