Hello Spark Buddies,
I got on my Wii Fit today after being absent from it for over 60 days. I was kind of skeptic
about getting on it because it would always "say" hurtful things to me
For example, when i was over 220lbs, it would say "oh"
every time i stepped on it, as if i was hurting it
However, when i stepped on it today, it said
So that made me feel good
Next, it was time for me to do the stability test and i passed it at 70% for being well-centered
Finally, it was time for me to update my weight
which is the part i hate the most! I was scared
that the Wii would show a different weight that was higher
than the scale i weighed in on Monday (200lbs). To my surprise
the Wii calculated me as weighing three and a half pounds less (196.5). However, it still yelled at me and said i was "Obese"
I really felt good with all of the readings from the Wii system. Although it still calculated my BMI as being in the "Obese" range, it did move
a couple of notches and my weight decreased
by 19 lbs
All of this was done within 68 days of me being absent from it.
If it wasn't for SparkPeople's website and it's motivating members, I don't think I would have lost those 19lbs alone. I know I have a long way to go to reach my goal, but for now I'm overwhelmed of the progress I've made so far. I would like to tell the staff and my motivating SparkBuddies
for all your help and encouragement
In no way am i discouraging anyone not to get the Wii Fit. In my opinion it is a great machine for those who want to lose weight and for those who want to play games or have family fun.
This blog is intended to be hilarious and motivating, not discouraging. For those who i have offended, i apologize. And i know it's just a machine that yells at a healthy, overweight, or obese person, lolol. It yelled at my daughter and she weighs 102 lbs, lolol.
