Wii Fit

I got a Wii Fit a few months ago. I thought it would be great for tracking my weight over time, getting into yoga, strength training, losing weight, and offering a general alternative to eating or sitting on the couch.

Well I like it and it's fun. I started out using it every day, now it's less and less. My weight has been pretty steady of the few months I have had it, just going up and down between 226 and 219. I am glad that I've been able to maintain my 20lb loss from last summer, though I gained back the extra weight I had lost in the fall, 5 or so pounds. I really want to get below 200.

I am going to keep at it. I've been most playing games and doing less of the yoga and no strength training for awhile. I've been getting better about the aerobics. I like the top ten score list, it gives me a challenge and motivation to work towards something.

Anyway, I recommend it. It wasn't the magic bullet I hoped it would be, but it is good.
