It told me I'm fat. Me no likey!

Loved the ski slalom and the ski jump so far. We had to play with every single toy today, so 5 minutes per toy was all that was allowed.

I liked the ski jump.

It told me I was 28, which works out well, cause I am 28.

But I am obese according to the machine.

Told me I was 49. I'm 43. I need core body strengthening and some aerobic work!

I'm only slightly overweight and slightly reducing my BMI will render some significant health benefits.

I picked the female trainer. Yourself?

I like wii fit, too bad I wait 100 day between sessions It's says I'm obese, that's not the case, just a little chunky

My 9 year old was a yoga master after 1 day. So he retired from wii fit.

Actually I did play today for about 20 minutes. I unlocked another yoga move, yippeee!

Once you set it up for each family member, it responds appropriately. My 42lb daughter tried jumping into my 163lb skis and it didn't work so well.

Once she set-up her own profile based on age, height, and weight - it worked just as well for her.

Impressive piece of engineering and design.

I like it. Too bad I don't use it much. There is also a bit of WiiWare that you can download which is a series of mazes that uses the balance board. That was pretty cool. Some of them are really hard....
