Ok, I have to admit I was a bit offended when my husband purchased Wii Fit Plus for me for Christmas. He would never in a million years tell me point blank that I need to lose weight. He's continued to make me feel like a sexy mama even after all the weight I've put on with two kids, but I know this was his not so subtle nudge letting me know that its time I finally get my butt back in shape!
The first time I used it and realized that it was going to weigh me I made sure he was out of the room. Thank goodness I did because the next part was totally horrifying. My avatar came on the screen as I stepped on the board to be weighed and the avatar grew increasingly plump until it looked almost as wide as it was tall. Now if that wasn't humiliating, I don't know what is. As brutal as that was to take in, I think it was the slap in the face that I needed.
I've been using the Wii Fit almost every day since Christmas now and I really love it. I absolutely hate to exercise usually because it bores me to tears. However, being the game lover that I am the Wii fit exercises are actually entertaining to me so its really kept me going. Some of my favorite exercises are the obstacle coarse and the hula hoop. My kids get a big kick watching me do that one! Hopefully I'll be able to keep up with it and get myself back to a healthy weight soon. I'll keep you posted :)
