Welcome Michelle! I know what you mean by trying to use it with the kids aren't already playing on it. Ours is hooked up to the same screen the bf's 13 yr old son plays his xbox on. So I have to us ours when I can too. And usually that is the same time I am busy with stuff for work. So since going back to work, I haven been on my nearly as much as before. I get most of my exercise in with walking for work and errands, or PT yoga like stretches for my scoliosis.

Glad to have you back on SP and on the team. All my best to you always. Janette

Hi everyone my name is Michelle I live in a little town in western Oklahoma. I have been on and off of spark since 2006. I am back again (obviously) and hopeing to actually stick with it. I finally set the wii back up after almost a year of it being in storage, I have been working on it a little bit just getting back into the swing of things, that is when I can sneak in the back room when the kids arent already playing on it.

Welcome back to SP and to our team, Jody! I too have back slide since going back to work. I sit a lot a work too. But I also do a lot of walking with errands and other stuff for work. I am usually in the office a lot on my own, so I try to get up and walk around in the office once in a while if I know that I am going to be sitting at the desk a lot doing paper work or computer work. I also walk a lot for personal errands, or park in the back of the parking lots, or around a block or so to make myself walk more.

I was walking with some ladies in town on my days off a lot this summer too, but things have just got too busy lately that I haven't been joining them. Hopefully I will be able to schedule more of that stuff again soon.

Any ways, glad to have you join us. Check out our monthly exercise challenge if you haven't already do so. And join anytime.

HI, I am returning to Spark after a long hiatus and I am glad to be back. I see a lot has changed with the Spark website, and so I will need to play around to see where things are again! I ordered a Wii console and Wii Fit Plus because a friend highly recommended it to me, and I expect it to arrive on the 15th. My biggest challenge is that I now have a job where I sit all day, and often work late. So the Wii will allow me to come home, exercise a bit and then have somewhat of an evening left! I look forward to hearing about your successes and Wii Fit tips!

Jennifer! Welcome back! Great to hear from you again. I would love for you to join us again, even if it is just popping in and out. And you know any type of exercise works for me, not just Wii! As it is my Wii Fit Plus disc just finally gave up on me recently and I haven't go around to going and finding another one yet. But will look for one. I still have several other disc for the Wii like the resort one, my zumba one. I am working for a local CPA now, so I am not on here as much as before. But I am on at least once or twice a day usually. Anyways, I am off to get ready for work soon here. I have a busy week at work, my boss just came in from Chicago and we have to catch each other up on company stuff before he goes back to Chicago later this week. But I am looking forward to catching up with you. Take care, Janette

Hi everybody! I was a member here a long time ago but drifted away from the site due to dialup. I have a satellite connection now and wanted to come back and try again. I may disappear from time to time but I'll try and hang around when I can now that I can actually load the pages :)

My name is Jennifer and I'm in my 30s and I love video games :) I have had my old Wii system for maybe 6 or 7 years now but I admit I haven't messed with it in quite awhile while my attention has been on my Xbox 360 when I have time to play a game. I want to try and get back into using my Wii Fit system though again. With my asthma, I have found it to be one of the safest ways to exercise for me from my own home without triggering an attack.

Anyway, I'll try and participate as I can, but my time is limited having to watch my nephew daily, especially with his big summer break starting the end of next week.

Hi everyone! I started my newest weight loss journey around my birthday last October (2016) and using my WiiU I have lost 69lbs now. I love working out with WiiFit and am happy to see other people do, too!

Hi, I'm Cheri and I love my wii fit. I like the way it makes working out not so boring and its very motivating seeing my Mii get smaller as I do and to hopefully see my weight go from the obese range to the overweight.

Hi, I'm Violet and I love my Wii. Whenever I don't feel like doing anything else for exercise I workout with my Wii because it doesn't feel like I'm exercising. Its so much fun

So glad to have you join us Mike! Happy to cheer you on your journey. I know this is a Wii team that I just kind of inherited, but really I encourage any and all types of exercise and I give out personal and team goodies to the team members for getting any kind of movement or exercise, even if they are recovering from a surgery or accident and are stuck in bed or a chair. Just do what ever you can to little by little start moving more and more, and start eating healthier little by little. And no beating yourself up for anything and no quitting. Just pick yourself up and dust yourself off and keep moving forward. No shaming her, just encouragement and fun!

Hi, so happy to have found this team. Besides a lot of walking my only other form of exercise is my wii fit. I love it. Love how it doesn't even really feel like I'm exercising. Its so much fun and I love trying to beat my old scores or my husbands all the while getting a good workout in.

Welcome to the team! Some one told me that you can find videos on YouTube of some of the games. She would watch the videos in hotel rooms when on work trips and just follow along as she was using the unit. I haven't tried to do that myself though. All my best to you always. And even though this team was made by someone that loved their Wii Fit Plus, all the original leaders of this team have long since left. I myself do more walking in my house and walking to do errands, and doing house work than on my Wii. So we welcome all no matter how much or little you use your Wii. I have a monthly exercise challenge that any and all exercise counts, not just using your Wii. Take care and all my best to you.

Welcome Samantha! Check out all the videos that SP has, there are a lot of videos for chair exercises, arm exercises and such that you might still be able to do if you want. Just stretching your other limbs could still be a big help to you. All my best to you always. I am busy working for a CPA right now trying to get through the April tax deadline. So I am not always on right now. But if you send me a personal msg if you want something or need something, I will try to respond asap. Take care. Janette

I am new to this page, but with Spark People for 7 years. I have been off and on for that long. This year however is the longest I have stuck with it.... Streak of 47 days.

My name is Trish, 40 years old, and I am a Marine (not active duty anymore). My husband, of 20 years, is active duty Army. Originally from Eastern North Carolina, currently living in Southeastern Georgia. I have 2 dogs (a Lab mix and an English Shepard) and I have 2 kids. After having them I have not been able to lose the weight. My highest weight to date was 188 and that was in January of this year. Currently down to 171 with a little help from this website and a weight loss clinic.

This year and time around I feel I am able to stick with it. Having the (free) app on my phone and the Tracker on my side.

Welcome to the newbies! This is a great team. My name is Nola and I've been a member since July 2014. I've lost 37 pounds total. I am at my goal weight of 135 pounds. I seem to be stuck there, but it's okay with me. At least I don't feel so run down! I would like to shed at least 10 to 12 more, but if I don't that's okay! I cut out all the junk food, and the first 3 months I ate gluten free. It seemed to help some, but it's a bit too much for me to stick to so now I just eat a lot of veggies and fruits and use the nutritional tracker on SP.

I have Wii fit U and several active games, Zumba core, Dance 4. I'm not good at any of them, but hey, I just keep moving! LOL I also love playing the Puzzle squash game and a few of the other moving games. I also own a horse (Charlie Brown), a cat (Leonardo) and 4 dogs. They keep me busy most of the time.

Wishing you well in your journey. We can do this together. SparkFriends offer tons of encouragement and inspiration.

Great to meet you Bonnie! I am Janette, I am 54. I live with my boyfriend in Escondido, Ca which is part of San Diego, Ca. I have no kids of my own, but my bf has a 9 yr old son that lives with us half the time and with his mom in a near by city the other half of the time that is about 30 mins away.

I have a 7 yr old beagle/terrier mixed dog and the bf bought a black lab/boxer mixed puppy at the end of last yr for his son that is about 1 yr old now, and they are spoiled rotten too. The puppy is a big dog that thinks she is a little lap dog like my other dog. And they both try to hog the chairs, couches and beds. Especially the pup likes to lay right on top of my legs or right against me in between the bf and me. My dog likes to steal pillows, she tries to get in between us too but up by the pillows so she can steal one. My dog likes to sleep in the boys room a lot now that we got the big pup as the boy has two extra pillows for her to steal from him, and when he is not with us then she has the pick of the three pillows on his bed. She spends most of her time during the day curled up on either of the beds on the pillows.

I started SP, MyfitnessPal, and several other weight loss and fitness groups on Facebook over a yr ago now. I started out at 170, my highest weight ever and met my first goal of getting to 140. I bounced up and down the whole way there, but made it. And then set a new goal to get down to at least 130, but may try to get down to 115? I am still bouncing around and I am back up to 145 right now, but still working to get down further.

I have had a lot of health issues popping up since I started this journey, and family issues too, but still pushing forward.

I think you will like this group! There are a lot of really nice and friendly ladies in here all on a similar journey going through similar issues. If you have any suggestions or questions be sure to let me know. I welcome any and all suggestions, comments, etc.

All my best to you always, take care, Janette

Hi, My name is Bonnie and I live in Northeast Georgia, near Atlanta. I have been married to Richard for 34 years and we have 5 children, 13 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren.
We also have 2 small dogs, Joey and JJ. They are spoiled rotten.

I am 59 years young, doing the Nutrisystem Weight Loss Program and have loss 30 pounds to date. I still have another 30/35 to go and it seems to have stalled so I am changing things up.

I love challenges, encouraging others, making friends and having fun. Looking forward to getting to know each and everyone of y'all. emoticon

Krys, So glad to have you join us. We have a lot of team members that are disabled or recovering from different surgeries. We don't require you to do any certain type of exercises. We just cheer each other on with what ever we do accomplish. We have several members that have to modify the different games in Wii Fit Plus to do some of them, and that is just fine. We all just do what ever we can do the best to our abilities. And if you are not up to doing any thing for days, weeks or months, then that is totally okay too. We are still here to support you no matter what. Take care and nice to meet you. Janette

Hi I'm Krys and I'm new to this team but have been on Spark People for over a month.

I love my Wii and use it to spice up my workouts. I'm assuming you want to know a little about me so.. I live in West Central Florida. I am 41 years old, married and have five children. I am over weight and rehabbing from a total hip replacement I had in Nov of 2013.

Typically most people bounce back after surgery in 6-8 weeks. However I had nothing to bounce back too. I have been disabled since I was 21 years old and have waited for my titanium replacement parts for half of my life as my previous surgeon refused to perform a replacement on someone so young.

I can walk on a treadmill using the bars to help with my balance. However, I find chair exercises very difficult for my left leg. My thigh muscle is very weak and I can only get that leg an inch , inch and a half off the ground when I'm in a seated position.

Um what else... I own both Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus as well as some other "active" games that don't count calories. Because of my surgery I have some restrictions, No jumping, no crossing my legs and no bending more than a 90 degree angle being the most important.

Well I guess that's it. Stop by my Spark Page if you want to know more or just drop me a line.

According to the BMI chart, i'm much too short! O.O

Maybe check out this other thread of ours and see if there is anything in there that might help you. I actually use our Wii more for weighing myself and getting my BMI. As my bf has a 9 yr old that likes to tie up the TV that the Wii is hooked up to, and or tie up our Wii. Janette

Hello There! New member here. I need to lose 30 pounds at least. I am also working on a Gluten Free Diet. I absolutely love this site and all the teamwork and camaraderie. I have had my Wii fit for a few years now and just love it! I quit using it for a while due to knee injuries, but am now back on track. I love the Yoga workouts too! I can't do some of the poses due to bad knees, but I can do some of them. I just chose the ones that I can do and try to improve them. I also like the Free Step and the advanced step... Is there a way to add the Yoga exercises to my favorites. I try to do at least 15 mins of them.

To all new members: Please be aware that when you start this site, most of your pages will be set so the security is so high that we can not see your page, we can not send you friend request or see that you sent us any, or send you spark goodies, until you make changes to your settings. All we can do is see if you posted in here, and if so then click to reply to your post, or click to send you a personal msg from your post. If you so choose to change your settings, you go to your profile page, and on the top right hand side click to edit your page. From the next page that comes up, again on the top right hand side there will be some check box options. You will want to be sure that your page is not set up so that only friends can see it, because then we can not try to be your friend. You will also want to be sure that your page is set for online, not off line. In this same area you have the choice to keep you trackers for you food and exercise hidden or not, this is totally up to you and does not stop us from being friends in any way. I hope this info helps you. Janette

Hi, I'm Cheri and I love my wii fit plus. I have a 3 year old and a 7 month old at home and not much time to exercise so the wii fit is perfect for me I can do a little here and a little there and it adds up.

And what ever you do, just have fun!

Just a little note to the new members: I am noticing that a lot of the new members seem to have their security settings for their page set so that we can not see your page, which also means that we can not send you friend request, see if you sent us friend request, or send you "Spark Goodies", just something you might want to consider changing to make it easier for you to make friends in here and get Spark Goodies. If you so choose to change this go to your profile page and on the right hand side click to edit your page, then on the top right hand side that comes up after that, make sure that it is set so that people other than your friends can see your page and that your page is online. You can leave you food and exercise tracking hidden from us if you prefer and that has no consequence of stopping us from becoming friends.


Here are just some of the people that I can not send friend request or spark goodies to:
ERIIIHO, LIVING4CHRIST05, SUPERKELLY7, DAHALL8, DRAGONWOLF, CAPTAINCLOUD, JOFISHMO,


All my best to you all always.

Welcome to the team! All my best always. And Greeneyes_42, I just don't think I can say enough about how much I like our Wii Fit Plus system and how glad I am that we got it, and the same goes for SP. I was over weight for several years now and this site and that program has been a big part in my finally losing some weight and keeping it off. I started at 170 a few months ago and now I am down to 154.8 Lbs and dropping more and more Lbs and inches every week and every month.

Hi!

I just joined today. I posted a new thread under "Introduce Yourself to Team" forum so please click on "other topics". I'd love your opinions regarding the questions I have about the Wii Fit Plus. I have a Wii but not the board or program yet.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Hi Everyone, I'm new to spark people but I really like the idea. I joined the goal for a 20 minute work out every day. I have two jobs but I hope this will keep me motivated! Don't be afraid to message!

You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great!

Glad to have you on the team Carmel! Sent you a friend request. Yes, my Wii Fit age is always bouncing around. I don't like the stand on one foot change; the dual balance using both your feet and the remote; or the one where you have to move between moving objects and barriers the most, but there are others that can trip me up too.

Carmel,

Even those of us who have used it for a long time get those age ups and downs. I find it sometimes depends on the time of day as to where I "age" and then there are just some of the things they make me do I don't always get right away so that affects it. Focus on the fun and the exercise more than the age!

We have an August challenge started for these three games: Rhythm Parade, Basic Step and/or Hula Hoop. You can join anytime. We're recording our minutes and time spent for the month. Look under our Challenge threads.

Hi am Carmel. Just purchased a Wii and Wii fit plus game several days ago. I'm having fun with it but there is some frustration..lol To say the least. One day my age is 78 and the next 54. I know I will get better as time goes by. What a fun way to get fit. Going to look around the team. It's nice to meet everyone.

Hi Craftycobra, I am still trying to find out how to friend you? I see your posts in here, but no links to get to your page. And when I search for your page I can't find you. And I never found your friend request either?

Determined Janet and DollyHolly, do you ladies have any ideas on this to help us out?
