We got a Wii as a fun way to get our 40+ bottoms off the couch this winter.  I am loving it and am getting more exercise than watching movies.  The problem is I am getting too into the tennis and bowling.  I move around so much that it encourages the potty sprint more.  The fitness test that gives you your age should include how fast you can make it to the bathroom in between turns!
 
I can't wait for summer and gardening, but this has been a great way to rid the winter blues.  This is great for those that can't get out and exercise...I can still get a little workout and be near the potty.  Anyone else trying it????
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

I have the wii, but not the fit. I refused to get it while pregnant b/c I did not want it to plump up my mii. I do love the bowling though. I can't do tennis for anything.
Hoping to stay in remission after the birth of a healthy baby girl. On Pentasa during my pregnancy, went med-free 2 months to nurse (stupid), but back on Pentasa and still nursing.

We bought our girls one for Christmas...I think my husband secretly wanted one. lol We all have so much fun playing! It's something we can do together while we are stuck inside.

I'm currently addicted to Animal Crossing: City Folk. I'm trying to make the perfect town, but the animals keep griping that it's not good enough :(.

I use the Wii fit - particularly the yoga, strength and balance exercises. My neurologist was thrilled that I was doing the balance exercises to improve. My balance is crappy from the neuropathy. I can't do all the exercises but find it helps me gets the kinks out.

The animals ARE pretty picky. And the best ones always move out :(

We don't play our wii very much anymore though except for Twilight Princess...although Okami looks wonderful.
But neither of those really help in exercising alas.

I didn't even know there was yoga for the wii.

I played Okami on PS2 and it was fantastic! Highly recommend! I became very attached to Ammy and Issun.

What kind of fruit do you have in your AC village? All I have are apples and coconut. If you have something different, could I get you to trade me some?

I do have Wii Fit. Unfortunately, I've never gotten off my butt to use it much.

I will have to keep my eye out for it then. I saw it for 25 at gamestop a few months ago but had no money :( It has a lot of real literature from ancient Japan incorporated into it apparently(like the bamboo cutter's daughter).

I'm actually not sure what kind of fruit we have, but I will set it back up again tonight and let you know. We still need to trade for foreign fruit too :)

You should check out http://www.goozex.com. The gist is that you list games you have to trade, get matched to people who want that game, and get points from their account. Then you have a list of games you want, get matched to people who want to get rid of it, and spend the points in your account. I have saved so much money! For instance, I got Lego Indiana Jones for 900 points and a trade credit (they cost $1, but I've got so many free ones from participating in contests, I've never actually had to pay money). I beat the game in about 2 weeks, and since it was still in high demand, I traded it for 900 points. I paid about $2.50 for postage to send it to the next person, and reused a bubble mailer (we have tons of these because my dad's meds all come through the mail). Of course this was an ideal situation, only being out postage to play a game. But if you play is smart, you can stay ahead.

Thanks!! I was looking for a site like that my brother used to use but could not remember it for the life of me. Will definitely be using it :)

Spookyhurst: if you are after new fruit for your town, I have learnt a little trick ;)

Send letters to EVERYONE in your town, with some sort of present attached (you can attach anything, just old stuff you don’t want or stuff from the lost and found) and some of them will reply. Keep doing this until one of the animals sends you a piece of fruit – it will often be a fruit from a different ‘season’. Once you get one piece of fruit, plant it and grow a tree – and then an orchard – the fruit from unseasonal trees sells for 500 bells a pop! So you can get 750 bells with a purse full of out of season fruit!!! This is a great way to pay your house off quickly – I only had orange trees growing in my village but started an apple orchard and now I’m rich!

If only It was that easy in real life ;)

My animals never send me anything good...usually crappy carpet and wallpaper. I think Winnie must have bought a gajillion polka-dot rugs at a TJ Maxx clearance sale, because she continually gives them not only to me, but to other animal neighbors mad.

hahaha I have animals like that too; they send you running around like crazy for them and then give you something really lame like a FISH to say thank you!!

Maybe try sending fruit to everyone and see what happens...... if you do it all the time they're bound to send you a piece of fruit sooner or later :)

Two things that make me laugh (and weep) at my animal neighbors:

1. I send them a gift in the mail, which they then try to sell to me at an exorbitant price the next day (or I find it thrown away in the recycle bin).

2. They beg me to find them some special item (today it was a mole cricket), and then minutes later try to sell it back to me at an exorbitant price.

But I'll try sending fruit to everyone tomorrow, and see if anyone reciprocates :).

!!! Animal crossing! I love that game. I have several different fruits in my town and cherries is the town fruit. Lemme know if you guys want to trade friend numbers and you both can come get whatever you like!
 
Yeah.. I obviously got a wii too. I do have to say I love the wii fit.. although it really does become work!
 
Another game to look into is Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility. I am currently addicted... O.o.
