There's really no surprise in that statement to those of you who know me. You've always suspected it, but now I have proof.
We got a Wii Fit last night. I didn't anticipate that we would so soon be entering the world of Wii, but my husband won one at work, so that took care of part of the expense right there. I decided that I wanted to give the Wii Fit a try, give myself something fun that would be an incentive to get up and get moving. I spend so much time at my computer, I need a good reason to get up and move around.
We set up the Fit last night and I was the first one on it. It puts you through a series of tests to determine your overall condition and ability to balance. My Wii Fit age is 29, which means that I'm four years younger than I think I am, but I have also been labeled as unbalanced. Yeah, like I said, no surprise there.
I really think I'm going to enjoy this program. It's a whole lot of fun and I've always enjoyed games. My major problem with it, though, is that it's telling me I'm fully ten pounds heavier than my bathroom scale says I am. That is so humiliating. I mean, I'm overweight as it is, right?
Anyway, I'm going to be measuring my progress with the Wii Fit from now on. I'm just going to ignore that nasty number and concentrate on how much it says I've lost. The only real problem at this point is that my kids all want their turn on it too.
By the way, Grandma Ruthe has also gotten into the Wii Fit and I trounced her at the ski jump game. She's also lost another pound for a total of two. And yes, I did gain back my two and haven't lost it again. Working on it ... working on it ...
Contributors, please remember to e-mail me with pounds lost, and if your picture isn't up on the sidebar yet, please send me a reminder note. The brain is no longer what it used to be.
