DH and I are thinking about buying a wii mainly for weightloss reasons. I want to see if anyone has had any luck with losing weight, how much, and what games give the best workout. Thank you in advance!

  • I have been using the Wii first for just over a week now, and I have seen a considerable difference in inches. I gave birth two months ago and that's 13 months after giving birth to my son. Needless to say I had a few extra unwanted pounds. Since I've only been doing it for over a week I haven't seen much of a difference in weight loss. However, one always loses inches in body shape before they lose weight. Like I said, I have lost a lot of inches. My tummy has gone down in size, my thighs are thinner, my figure is coming back. I really am starting to see that my workouts are working.

    I have Wii Fit Plus, so I am using the routines on there. They have ones specifically geared towards what you're looking to change. Whether it's figure, stomach, butt, thighs, toning shoulders or back, etc. I usually do super hoola hoop, long distance run, rowing squats, and a few other strength and cardio workouts. It's a lot of fun too.

  • I've hit a plateau in the weight loss, but have still been dropping clothes sizes.

    I love it!!! I highly recommend it for the fitness!

  • We have WiiFit, WiiFit Plus, and risers for the platform. I mainly use the step program from the original WiiFit, just set it for 20-30 minutes and then turn back to the tv while it keeps the time and pace for me. My dh uses the exercise programs set up in the WiiFit Plus.
    I love it!

  • If you're not into video games I don't recommend it. I thought I would love it but it turns out I have no interest in playing it. As for our kids, they love it. I like the fact that it keeps them moving. I just wish I did like it more, then I would be moving more too...

  • I haven't broken out the wii fit plus that I got for my birthday 2 weeks ago. I'm not sure why. I have been using the Biggest Loser for the Wii. It has been kicking my butt and I love it. DH said that in less than a week he sees a difference in the way my thighs look. Haven't lost any weight, but if my body changes for the better, that's half the battle. I love the wii. the kids like it too and it hasn't become an obsession for them.
