I got my Wii Fit this last week and it definately is fun. I would not consider it a work out by any means but it is fun. I had to laugh when my wii mii got fat after I put my stats in. It used to be a cute skinny little thing - not so much anymore. Its kinda funny. I have found that is making yoga easier to do because of the breathing circle and I did like the running. I think it is worth the money.

ok, i've had it for a full 24 hours and love it (other than the fact that yes, it does make your Mii's fat)..

i've never done yoga before and its a challenge that i need to work on (balance sucks for me)... i love all of the balance games (ok, tightrope is boring, but the bubble one - both DH & i really like).

i have to admit, i did break a sweat on the running and the hula hoops... DH and i are in a competition with all of them - from hula hooping to the ski games.

LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!

The hula hoop is my fave so far. Big hula hooper when I was little BTW... Anyways that was the only thing I was really good at last night. I got it yesterday and hooked it up yesterday evening. I did the yoga and most of the balance activities. I loved it. I did the hula hoop section 3 times and my stomach is sore this morning!

Quick question. :huh2:Can you use the Wii fit on carpet, or does it have to be on a bare floor? We have the Wii and I am thinking about the Wii fit, but all the TVs in my house are in roomes with carpet. Thanks.:biggrin:

It actually comes with feet extenders for thicker carpet. I have mine on a rug (just flat, not shag or anything) and it did just fine.

My co worker was telling me that she purchased one recently and it is a GREAT workout.. a lot of cardio and she and her kids love it .. She loves the cross country running! Down side. she said her weight pops up on the tv screen for all to see.. YUCK. - From what i hear it is a good investment if you are like me and find all excuses for not going to the gym.... BTW . she said the yoga is great as well..

My son in law got one, and while he's not really overweight, more just out of shape, she just emailed and said if I buy him Levis for his birthday, better get a size smaller. Good for him!

thats weird about the weight ... mine didnt pop up, i think my BMI did though... i think there is a setting where you can make it private.

it works fine on our carpet, not thick, just regular carpet.

i love my wii fit!!! goign to try to get about an hour in each day.

Got the Wii Fit in the mail on Thursday & just set it up last night. We LOVE it! SO many core exercises that will help after surgery. My band date is July 15 so I am doing the Wii thing everyday with my daughther. Definitely worth the $89!:D

I like that the more you use the Wii Fit, the more things it opens up. Keeps it fresh and give that extra bonus. Today I played the baseball game with my brother and I was glad to see that my Mii was not a fat little Mii like it is in the Fit, she was back to normal being her cute little self. She is just a pudge on the Wii Fit...

I LOVE my Wii Fit. I was NOT an exerciser before surgery. I have been searching for an alternative to a gym. The gym's in my area have no clue when it came to heavier people needing an exercise program to match their level. So I am glad that I now have my Wii Fit. I am actually excited to come home from work and to jump on my Wii board. The only thing that I do not like is that you have to weigh yourself every day to get your stamp for the day. It is kind of hard to see your weight go up and down every day. So I have to remind my self that the important thing is that I am exercising every day for 30 min. and later the weight will come off. So just keep that in mind if you decide to buy the Wii Fit, otherwise I say go for it. It truly is a lot of fun. :)

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.

      Well yesterday I went bra shopping. Again. I could put pleats in the cups of the new ones I’d bought just three months ago so it was back to the department store. Foolishly I wore a dress so spent an hour in the fitting room wearing only my knickers as two fitters (yes it took two of them) ran back & forth with different bras to try. Those full length mirrors & fluorescent lights are super unflattering on the loose skin. Yikes! 
      Of course I’m between cup sizes & deflated at the top so only two of the most expensive brands around would fit me. At least a couple I bought were on sale.  Sigh. 
      So I’ve gone from a 18F to a 14F to now a 10FF/G.  At least I’m in two hook bras again and not the clumsy three & four hook ones. They are soooo much prettier (all lacy & fine mesh - ooh la la). 
      I really need to buy new knickers too - those old size 16 boy legs are like loose legged shorts now - but I’m just not sure what size. Plus after buying the new bras I can’t afford to buy knickers yet lol!
