Well for a few days now and on and off over the last 12 months I’ve been doing the WiiSports as my sort of go-to workout program. You can find all kinds of stuff online about it. That you can really lose some weight doing it. Well I’m trying really hard to lose weight now. I’m not playing around. However I weight a good 384lb (as of the last time I check). So going to the gym and doing any hardcore workout can be rather hard on me.
That is why I want to try to do something that will take me down at least to 320 where then I’ll feel like I’ve lost some good amount of weight where I can start doing some harder workouts. Do I believe WiiSports can replace any of those workout videos out there on the market? No not really. Can it be something to do that will lose weight? I’m not sure but it is rather fun.
For a good example; Form what I read the boxing is the #1 way to lose weight. I would have to agree, it’s really hard to do. Right now I’ve been doing the training, mostly the back punching because that can really give you a sweat. Which is what I need to do. My arms feel dead and I go for about 20-30mins on it as much as I can. You have to take into account you can’t simply keep going and going.. the game stops and you have to click-through menus.
I’m thinking about getting the WiiFit I read about. It looks like its more design to help you lose weight and have fun while you’re doing it. I am also gonna think about getting the DDR for the Wii as well. I think dancing or at least giving that a try will really help me lose. Dancing is a good way to lose weight.
My question to you, have you every try the WiiSports, WiiFit or DDR for the Wii to lose weight? Let me know and please leave a comment. Also if you want check my progress you can check the BlogRoll on the right and see my personal page on SparkPeople.com.
