Exercise has never been so much fun!

Buy yourself a WII Console.
YES, that's right, you heard me right, a kids game.

I bought my daughter one for xmas and I think I use it more than her.
I use it instead of watching television at night and I weigh myself on it also. It's fantastic, by the time I
have finished I have done nearly 30mins of workout and don't even realise how long it's taken me.

Sweat is pouring off me, not that you needed to know that, but I really get a good workout.

Try it out. You won't believe how great they are.

Computer games have come so far. :D

Another way to do this is to focus less on a target weight and more on making healthy choices each day to reduce your calories. One way to look at this is your Lowest Sustainable Weight. In this case, you would create a calorie deficit (with diet and exercise) and let your body respond to that over time. Eventually, you'll get to a weight you can sustain and feel good about.

Hi Lilly,

The Wii is pretty awesome ey? I have one myself, but generally use it to play games like guitar hero or super mario bros :lol: Not so much running around (but rocking out on the guitar controller is pretty fun hehe)

Sounds like you get a great workout on it, and the fun part is just bonus :D I should definitely invest in some of these exercise games, what do you recommend?

Sal,
The WII FIT PLUS is pretty awesome.
You get a step and the CD. I use it to weigh myself each morning, then I try to burn off so many calories each day. You can set a target weight that you want to reach.
I try and do 30mins a day, you can do yoga, aerobics, jogging, boxing.
I don't seem to get bored with it. Even when its 40 degrees outside I still make myself do some sort of exercise.
Best thing I ever bought. I actually do this instead of watching TV. 8)

The Wii Fit is great, as is the Wii Active. Love them both.
