So the Wii Fit really works? It looked like a sissy workout to me so I passed it up. I guess I'm in to the things that hurt a little bit, like kickboxing, running, etc. It's ironic because I am a size 16 in pants right now. It really goes with my body type and heigh though, so it's not a huge deal that I am size 16 - I would just rather be a 10 or an 8 like I was at age 17. So I decided to get back in some HEAVY motion, and punching things appeals to me. In high school we used heavy/punching bags almost every week for 2-3 days and those were probably the leanest of days in my life.
I have Epilepsy and the meds have made me gain a lot of weight over the last 10/12 years. So it's something a little bit out of my hands. I already work out quite often (5 times a week) yet I maintain the same 195 lbs. I don't look it, honestly. When I tell my friends they asked me to stop lying. I look more like a 130 or a 145. Slightly overweight, but not obese. I embrace my body, but I would like to look at pictures without wishing I could change my arms or my tummy.
My husband lost 150 pounds with the Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus!
I'm not trying to lose weight, but I do exercise to stay healthy and help give me energy. Each morning I do a 30 minute workout tape. Usually Walk Away The Pounds (because I like Leslie, and it is easy to follow along with, WHILE still giving me a great workout.)
I also do strength training a couple of times per week with free weights, and my husband and me go for walks and jogs (depending on our energy) at night.
In the summer, we nix the walks and just swim in the pool! And when I say swim, I mean we do laps for thirty minutes to an hour before we just splash around and have fun.
