Mii Fit? I think not.

I got my Wii Fit yesterday. Of course right off my plans to do this when I get home from work were crushed when Sophie took over and claimed it as her own. If I just stepped on it she cried in anger!

Once she went to bed, we had a go at it. Immediately we were impressed. I just love how sensitive and accurate the Wii board is. The weight was right on (unfortunately) and my lack of balance was immediately apparent. My Wii Fit age? 47. Yes, 47. I lean too much to the left. Dave leans too much to the right. But, we will fix it. Oh yes wii will.

We only played with it for a half hour or so but already I could feel my upper back aching a little. Proof it was doing something. We sampled some yoga, balance exercises, and aerobics. The running in place is hilarious. You have to follow a mii friend down a trail. As you run all your mii friends cheer you on! Hey Celvyn, you look great! I've given myself 2 months to reach my goal. Let's see if I get there.

The best part was during the jogging, your Dad ran by. Never did I think I'd see Leo running!

What, 47?! I'd hate to imagine what my Wii Fit age is!!!

Sounds like a fun new game! Do you call it a "game"? Whatever you call it, it sounds fun!

I preordered at Walmart. I think Target has them, not sure. I think you'd have excellent balance Celvyn. It's just your insides that aint all that.

Actually the Toys R Us in Times Sq always had the best inventory of Wii's in the past so maybe that is your best bet.
