Is my Mii fit or fat?

A month or so ago, our dear friend Carlos blessed us with Wii Fit!!!
We were so excited and the kiddos started playing it every spare minute.
(one of them who doesn't have any extra on him, lost 6 pounds!)

We really think it's fun. It's a great way to do home school p.e. and all without leaving the house! Whoo-hoo!

I think this must have been an optical illusion or something, but the kids were just sure that since my hubby and I hadn't played it often enough,
our Miis were gaining weight.
So, everyday I would have to hear about how my Mii looked fatter!
Oh, good grief! Talk about incentive!-I don't think that really happens... Does it?
Well, I am trying to play it more often. No one has mentioned my that my Mii looks thinner though, so I don't think that's a reality. I lost three pounds which was fun.
It says that I'm not overweight but that I would be healthier if I lost 9 pounds. Now, wouldn't that be nice...

Running really gets your heart rate up. And I think it's annoying when that guy you are supposed to follow keeps looking back at you if you slow down, like 'what happened to you?!' So, that makes me want to keep up. I haven't had any of the other games really get my heart rate going yet but then I haven't explored or unlocked very many things yet either. Do you have a favorite game?

What I've decided Wii Fit does best, is give you exercise in HUMILITY! Ugh!

Here's why:

~It says that I have the balancing skills of a 55 year old! (there's an ego booster since I am no where near age 55!)

~My Mii is constantly hanging her head in shame when I ski! Good thing my hubby has never taken me skiing!

~It reminded me today to watch out for afternoon SNACKS just after I'd pigged out on spiced walnuts, which are one of my favorite things to make at Christmastime. Was that a coincidence???

~And to top it off, my hula hooping skills had my children howling with laughter and video taping me against my wishes.
They showed it to my hubby at dinner, who did more laughing...

So, my afternoon snack plan for tomorrow will be humble pie (aka Wii Fit) instead of the spiced walnuts....
But I'm not hula hooping again unless I'm the only one home! ; )

I want Wii fit! We've wanted to buy it for a while now, but we found out it's one of the hardest games to find for the wii. Have fun!

OH MY GOSH! I am sooo with you o this, Becky. We got a Wii Fit for Christmas and MAN! You think your balance is bad, mine told me, the 1st go around that I was 66! Yes, 66! Yikes!! Now it says 47, which is still above my "true" age. Have you tried the soccer module? They throw shoes and stuffed animals at you. Not very nice. ;-)

Hi Leslie!
Yes, I tried it and was sure I was about to be knocked unconcious! : )
I couldn't get the hang of it. What's your favorite game?
I think the step areobics is fun.
