I have faithfully watched every season of The Biggest Loser, except the one where the winner has now gained all his weight back. For Christmas, my dear sweet husband bought me a Wii and a Wii Fit. I didn't have to drop many hints at all either. Okay, I confess..that's a lie. I only told him every other day since my friend's birthday at the beginning of November when she got one. But, that's beside the point. I got the Wii didn't I? My parents, per my request bought several accessories and games for me for Christmas as well. I had asked for a Yoga game, thinking that Yoga would ease my infertility stresses, but Mom couldn't find the one I was talking about so she got me The Biggest Loser fit game. I have to admit I was a bit afraid of this game, since I have in the past owned 2 Biggest Loser workout dvds and done them a total of 2 times before deciding that Bob and Jillian just weren't for me.
So, the first time I played the game was the first day I opened my Wii and Wii Fit, and I was way too excited to read the instructions. I weighed in and noticed that it was weighing me roughly 10 lbs. less than I really weigh. I kinda liked it, so I didn't worry that there was something wrong with my board. Two days later, I read that if I am using the wii fit board on carpet I should put the included extra feet on the bottom of it. Ah ha! Needless to say, it weighs me pretty accurately now. I've only played the game 3 times to date. The second time I didn't have to weigh in yet, because it was not elimination time. Today, the third time I played, I had to weigh in. Uh oh. I have lost 5 lbs since I played last, but I knew that it would still put me at a gain. Sadly, as expected, I fell below the yellow line. However, the girl that fell below with me is the one that go eliminated. Bob yelled at me. He told me I barely escaped that elimination and that I'd better step it up. New goal: don't let Bob down. Ha!
On a completely different note, my dear friend Lance should start a blog. Leah, I think he's "thinking about it." You should hound him with me until he does. I think I'm going to end up loving this thing.
