Happy BDay GB!

My dad's wii rocks! My mom got it for him for father's day last year. We play mostly the sport pack that comes with the console. Get an extra controller and nunchuck right away. We got the fit last summer - awesome! The only bad thing is that your mii changes after you do your fitness profile. I chunked out a little. My mom is this little itty bitty so her mii passed out! It was hilarious! It made the rest of us chunks feel better!

LOL to the Mii thing. My nephew is about as buff as they come (karate sensei) and not an ounce of fat. His Mii and fitness profile say he is overweight so his Mii is funny looking!

What is the average price of one? I've been looking online (ebay) prices seem high.

You will LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT! Jeff has one, with the Wii Fit, and my deal with your uncle was that if you are going to schlep me to the frozen north, I need a Wii so I have some way to exercise in the winter that's FUN. I do have it and I love it.

You can use it in your living room, I think. As long as there is nothing in front of you (I don't recall a coffee table?) and nothing to the side...

Or set it up downstairs.

My father in law bowled on Jeff's and he bowled a 156 so he re-joined his old bowling league and got up to 187!

Happy Bday Neph!

It is pretty funny how it judges you. Even though I'm overweight, my mii age is 25 (I was 35 when I did the profile) because of my balance. My mom's is the funniest though. It will even tell her to go eat a snack from time to time. I wish mine didn't waddle when I walked so much though ... .

Got mine at Costco for $278, I believe.

Thanks Aunt M!

I love that story about your FIL. He always got so excited when he would tell me about bowling. I am happy he got back into it.

Still no one has explained what it dos and how the fit works I am also very interested in the fit. So do you need to get one thing before you get the fit? I'm am totally clueless to this game and how it works.

OK this thing is really fun. It took me a while to get used to it, but I am starting to get the hang of it. Rach is starting to be pretty good at tennis too.

The Wii fit is an accessory to the regular Wii.
