To Wii Fit or Not to Wii Fit

***Disclosure-No compensation was received.  Informational post only.Well in my quest to loose weight I have decided to try the new Wii Fit. Months before my wedding, trying to squeeze into a wedding dress is a challenge. I need all the help I can get. I have tried the gym, YMCA, and on my own, but I go strong for awhile and then what nothing. So I am giving this a try. I asked around wondering what people thought with their purchase. Everyone seemed to be in love. Still I was very skeptical. So my fiance decided to give me one. We opened it up and set it up. I decided lets go ahed and give it a try. I set up an Mii to look like me, short, and stubby with glasses. Next it gave me a body test. Well guess what I am obese according the the height to weight chart. I weighed me and it was not good. But it gave me a reality check. The Wii Fit also gives you your BMI number. It allows you to set up a goal. All of this was great information for me. No need to be embarrased and need for anyone else to know, you can even password protect your information. It also told ran a balance test on me, well i knew i am not balanced. I'm always tripping on my own two feet, and my heals seem to hurt all the time. Well i am out of balance. I don't stand with my weight correctly proportioned. Next we entered the games, Yoga, Strength training, Aerobics, and balance. I tried a little of everything. Needless to say, I love my Wii Fit. I actually was sweating. After an hour it tells you to take a break. So i did.

Day two:
I had had a long day at work. We went out to dinner and to the grocery store. After all that time had flown. I had gotten home, clean up a little bit, and put everything up. And yes I hit the Wii Fit at 10 p.m. Because it is in my home I can use it when ever I want. The Wii Fit is so interactive it even told me it was impresses because it was late for me to be trying to exercise. I did strength training and Yoga for an hour. I was sweating more than the day before. Wow. I felt so tired and worn. I love it. It was so much fun. Again have I said how much I love my Wii Fit.

I will continue using my Wii Fit and continue to check my progress as it keeps up with all of that. In no time I should be in my wedding dress.

I've always wondered about the Wii Fit myself! It's a big investment but I guess it's the fun of it that keeps you coming back for more thus giving you the results you want. And it's always nice to get a pat on your back for using it! Looking forward to seeing your progress - maybe it will motivate me to purchase one for myself :)
