That thing can be mean. I'd heard about it calling children obese, but it isn't much nicer to those underweight. It has me setting goals to gain muscle, blah, blah. Yeah, I'm actually very strong, just extra thin at the moment. Exercising isn't really going to help that. rolleyes

It's still pretty fun though.
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.

Yes, just got it. It's not human so obviously it doesn't take in to consideration things like diseases. Yes, it will register anyone overweight if their height and weight make it so their bmi is in the overweight category. It might be a good tool for overweight children...something that they see as fun but actually helping them.

Yup I have it. It called me obese haha.  I enjoy it though, I think its really fun, and Id much rather play with it then going out for a walk.  My favorite is the hula hoop advanced stage, I got up to over 1 thousand spins each way, and felt like my hips were going to fall off after haha.

I try so hard to gain weight, and then Wii Fit tells me I lost 2 pounds in one day! It's a fun game though.

Lots of protein shakes (ones that you can tolerate) and lifting weights will help you gain some weight, it won't happen overnight, but give it time and it will help.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
