I have noticed that quite a few of us now have Wii's and Wii Fits. I have started my workouts as of Dec 26/08 and let me tell you I love this thing. I am not an exerciser in any shape or form, other than walking the dogs. I will start with my beginning stats and my first goal I have set for myself.I have already reached bodybuilder and yoga master status on a few exercises and will post those also. If anyone wants to join then jump on in!

Wii Fit Starting Stats

Height: 5'5"
Weight:169lbs
BMI: 28.64
Wii Fit Age: 58

First Goal: Lose 10lbs and 2 points of my BMI by February 26/09

When I do my next work out I'll post my exercise rankings.

Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii........................

I'm in as long as I don't need to posts my weight ;)

I really like the Wii fit, and I haven't been using it as much as I did in the beginning. I will use it more if we're doing a challenge though :D

I'm having trouble coming up with a first goal though :think:

Thanks for jumping in ladies. I screwed up, I acutally started on Saturday Dec 27.

So far I have done:

Dec 27: 23 min
Dec 28: 36 min
Dec 29: 41 min ( + 1 hour trudge through the snow with dogs)

I forgot to write down my rankings, but I keep unlocking new exercises and challenges. The two I know that so far I am doing really well on are the Jack Knife Abdominal- Bodybuilder status and the Warrior Pose- Yoga Master. Oh, and I love the Hula Hoop game, wwwwwwwiiiiiiiiiiiii !!

After 3 days it says my Wii Fit Age is 42, I guess after doing some of the exercises it reasses your "Age".

PS: Michelle please just post what you feel comfortable revealing, I'm sure it doesn't matter one way or the other to anyone here what your weight is, and I certainly wouldn't want to press you for any info you dont want to reveal! I think the point of this "challenge" is for us to actually use our Wii Fits for what they are meant for.

Today's Wii Fit age 36 :teddy2:

12/31: 46 minutes

My weight and BMI are down a bit but I think a little too early to be truly accurate. I figure I'll post those stats once a week.

Yep..me too. Love to join the challenge. But, I'm not posting my weight, either. My fitness age was 47...10 years older than me; but not too bad. Now, when it plumped my little Mii up to "correct" proportions I 'bout fell over dead. I really don't think I look like that and hubby and kids all agreed. Geesh.

My goal is to do 30 minutes 3 times a week. My wii fit age jumps all over the place. It started at 49, went down to 24 and today was 32. I won't be posting my weight but it's up there. My goal is to get my BMI down to 30 or less.

I did 45 minutes tonight! My fitness age was down to 39--wow, I'm 37 soon to be 38 so that's not bad at all. That was the good news.

I haven't been on the wii since before our Christmas vacation and I gained 2lbs. :( It was easy to do with the vacation and the holiday dinners plus Christmas cookies and fudge. All things considered, it probably could have been worse.

I am not sure of my final goal either...I want to get into the normal BMI range for my height. On the wii tracking, I decided to go with smaller goals and time frames, hoping I could see some quick success and get motivated by that.

I like a lot of the exercises. Both Hula hoops and the ski jumps are fun. Soccer is definitely not my fave...I wish I had a nickel for every time I got hit in the head with a soccer cleat, LOL.

I want to join in too. Dh bought me a WiiFit for my birthday in Nov. and I used it for a couple of weeks and then got busy with other things and slacked off. I want to start doing it daily again though and lose a few pounds. I can't post my current numbers 'cause I haven't done it in a while, but will try to get around to it.
