Has anyone actually lost any weight on the Wii Fit?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I got a Wii for christmas and then went out on Boxing Day for the sales and got myself a Wii fit.

I have had so much fun playing it, the variety keeps me entertained and into the sports so that does help.

But I am wondering, is it just a fad or has anyone actually lost any weight??

That is not bad - yeah, there is a lot of movement involved as well as a lot of balancing

I can't say if I've lost weight with just Wii Fit, as I'm pairing it with working out on the elliptical, but the strength training and yoga are really good. I can feel it the next day. The hula hoop one is really good too, I can definitely feel that. It's good for me, because I do cardio on the elliptical but can do the strength training and yoga with the wii fit.

The Yoga stuff is REALLY good, the step stuff is good when you can just step for 30 minutes straight - that's something you have to unlock.

I am so bad at the rhythm when it comes to the step - what is the step plus? I planned to use it today but I am not feeling well today - I think I have caught the bug my nephew and niece have.

I got a wii well pretty much for valentines day cause that is when we found one. I got a wii fit for Christmas. I love it so far. But I have only had it for a couple days. I think that it will definitely make me more aware of my weight which that in it self might motivate me to become a little more healthy.

That is true. But I was so shocked at my BMI level! It is definitely motivating me to lose weight.

I would love one for the yoga. I find it hard to motivate myself to exercise, so I think with a Wii I might actually do it.

Haven't tried the Wii Fit but put my heart into the boxing. I'm sure I could loose weight with it if I could find enough willing opponents.

I wish you could play the wii sports games with other wii people around the world like mario cart. That would rock

I got DH a Wii for christmas and he still hasn't set it up. He'd rather just sit on the sofa and watch tv, so I'm wondering why he asked for a Wii??? I said I'm going to sell it on ebay
Men are wierd, especially when you marry them!

My daughter got a Wii sports for Christmas. She has been playing it all day every day and complains how sore her body is. I must say it gets her moving

I bought wii fit and sold it a couple of days later (and made a profit) because I didn't like it. I found it hard because I have a bad left ankle and put most of my weight on my right so I couldn't really much on it.

I was thinking it might help motivate me too. One of my God-Mother's got one a few weeks ago and she had my Mother in hysterics talking about it. She's what I would describe as 'a natural born leader.' One who is always right (which just kills me sometimes too!) and when you were a kid you knew better than to question her, etc. She told Mom that she was working with it and it told her she wasn't moving fast enough! I can just picture the look she gave the thing! She told Mom she was yelling back at it that it was as fast as she goes!

I saw several of them at our Walmart today. Didn't check to see if it was just boxes on display or not though. I know for some things they put out boxes and you have to get an associate to get the item.

Ive been looking for a while and the other day Even though I looked and there were none I saw a guy walk out with one at walmart on my way out. I ran to the back and there were none there so I asked and they said yeah we should have some they are behind the counter. Maybe try to ask just in case they are keeping them hidden.

You should have better luck finding them since it's after the Holidays. We lucked into finding one before I had even had my Wii shipped to me on the shelves at Wal Mart. I think that's the only time I've seen them there, though. I have seen them at Costco and Best Buy, though, but they do go fast!

I haven't actually lost weight on it because I was real good about doing it for a couple weeks and then the hot water heater started spewing water and everything in storage ended up in the living room, and then it was the holidays, and now it's now, so I need to start doing it again. I really liked it and was actually pretty good about doing it (until there wasn't room for it).

One of the big things with MS is that your balance gets off (sometimes if you see someone who looks like a drunk walking, they may just have MS and can't control it...unless they're coming out of a bar, then they're probably just drunk!). A lot of people on the MS board I'm on love it because of the balance exercises. Of course, Wii tells all of us that we're off-balance, which we already knew, but it does help to concentrate on those skills.

I unlocked the step plus and that was so much fun. I can't stop thinking about it and have been wanting to do it again but I didn't have time and Jake is playing the PS3 so I don't have access to the TV

Well I have been faithfully using it for 9 days and I have lost 2.8kg which is 6.1 pounds. Not too bad. But then again, I have been watching what I eat as well so that helps
