Wii Fit Can Suck It

Maybe that's a bit harsh.  For my birthday I used some money from my parents to by the Wii fit plus board and game.  I just did the initial tests today.  In case you don't have one, it does a balance test, then takes your height (5'4"), age, weigh and calculates your BMI.  Then it gives you a Wii fit age.  My Wii fit age was ...
I am 37 as of last week so that's 17 years added to my life because of my weight.  Seriously.  I know I am fat, I know I have to lose weight but really, 17 additional years.  Grrr....


  1. My kids love the Wii Fit! Hope you enjoy it! I tend to use the Biggest Loser for Wii because it's more "structured" and I need that.

    Anyway, the only frustration I have with the Wii Fit is that it doesn't really scale well for children and the "you're overweight!" or whatever is unnecessary. I think it should be optional whether or not you want the doomsday speech on for kids, especially small children.

    My kids are strong and healthy ... definitely "thick" kids but nowhere near fat and I hate that the game has made them question their body/health.

  2. I heard about the kid issues. My kid is super skinny so he hit the healthy weight range. I almost thought he would hit the underweight. We got the plus version so I wonder if they fixed it.

    We tried a few games but I don't really feel it was exercise. I need to play around more. I think I bought it more for him, freinds mention the kids really like the games you can play with it.

  3. Hopefully this comment will come through... my last 2 didn't post for some reason. Anyway, I have wii fit and am not as excited as others about it. Too much starting and stopping. 17 years? Another motivation to keep at it, right? :)

  4. 17 years was a big eye opener. The atarting and stopping was a pain. I think I will use it more for "fun" time with the kids rather than exercise. I will look into other Wii games like BL.

  5. Even my comments are being lost. 17 years was a big eye opener. The starting and stopping was annoying. It may end of being more of a "fun" tool than actual exercise. I will look into some other games for it.
