I Wii Pii’ed myself when my Wii Fit arrived!

I cannot express the sheer excitement I had when I got my WiiFit. I WiiPii’ed myself a bit. I mean, I have coveted this baby since I first saw them demo it way back in … Well, I don’t remember when but it was a long time ago. And now? Wii have one. (Wait…I looked it up. It was almost a YEAR AGO I first talked about Wii Fit. That is a long time to keep me waiting. Let me just put that out there.)

Okay, so anyway *waving my hands around like an over eager 4 year old* My baby. My precious. My Wii Fit is home safe. Even though Clint says I can’t sleep with it…anymore.

I will admit it scared me at first. I mean it would know my darkest secrets. My BMI and weight? Uh, no. My OB/GYN is not even allowed to know that and he knows me pretty intimately, so to speak.

Thankfully, my good friend Donna showed me that I can password protect my information. I mean, really, my kids don’t need to know that “mama has a big ol’ butt (say whaaaaat?)” (Bonus to whomever got that reference.)

So there I go with my bad self all hula-hoopin and jogging and balancing etc. ONLY to find that my kids were watching and laughing and videotaping me with my Flip camera. Under penalty of boarding school, they deleted it. I swear if you find it on YouTube, the kids are shipped off tomorrow. Unless I can become more famous than the Star War’s kid and Momsense all in one. Or not. Because really? It would totally be laugh at me and not with me.

BUT I have lost 6 pounds. SIX. 1…2…3…4…5…SIX.

So worth the wait for Nintendo to actually release this bad boy. (Though some of the weight loss might be attributed to me standing in the Texas heat chasing down the mailman every time I saw him. But most likely not.)

And fun? We are talking literally fun for the whole family. No. Really! Stepford Scouts honor!

My only rule is the video camera? It has to stay put away. Until I have the body of Demi Moore and the dance moves of ….okay the only name I can think of is Carmen Electra’s Strip Exercise video. But the point is the same.

It works.

It is fun.

Wii love it!

(TOTALLY WORTH the WiiPii in my pants over its arrival. Totally.)

When making sure I was spelling hula hoop correctly– because you know I am all about being right– I went to look it up. (And was totally wrong but have seen it spelled my way as well.) This was the message I got.

There are no dictionary entries for hoola hoop………

but hoop is spelled correctly.

So kind and encouraging. “Hey, dumbass, we have no idea what you want to try to spell, but great job on getting the word HOOP spelled correctly.”

  1. Six pounds is great!

    Man, I soooo have Wii envy. I hope to get one soon!~

    BTW – I found you through BlogHer…. I enjoy your blog…


  2. Jen,

    You know there is a game called Wii Pii, right?

    Msg me and I’ll send you the link.


    P.S. I’m mad at my Wii Fit right now. We’re not talking until it takes back what it said about me gaining 3lbs since the last time it saw me. Rude, I say! 🙂

  3. I SOOO want one of those. I keep deluding myself into thinking if I could exercise at home, I might actually do it.
    BTW… you can IM me anytime… your conversation sounds hysterical from the above post. I’m a night owl myself. email for my IMname.

  4. Aw, I was hoping for the video camera. I still have a long way to go with my wii-fit. According to it, I am 68 years old.

  5. So…didn’t the WiiFit JUST come out??? And you already lot 6 lbs.? So at that rate, I could be in a bikini by Tuesday!

    That’s the best product endorsement ever.

    I’m off to WiiPii myself…


  6. I absolutely love the Wii Fit. It’s a lot of fun and I’ve lost weight on it, too! Makes waiting for it for such a long time, totally worth it.

    My daughter has a Flip and I caught her videoing me and my mad Hula skills. I immediately deleted it and hid the Flip! Ha!

  7. Glad I could help you with password protecting your Fit info. Now if we can just figure out how to password protect your Flip…

  8. Whoo hoo!!! Six pounds! Congrats! We have a regular Wii. What’s the difference? The regular Wii makes you sweat a bit as it is.

    Dontcha just love it when technology tells you how stupid you are? Kinda like when my car navigation says in a snippy tone, “Make a U-turn, if possible” which is code for, “Hey, moron, you missed the turn even though I gave you ten warnings that it was coming up!!!”

  9. I have had a Wii Fit for about 2 weeks now and I love it! I work on it everyday when I come home from work. I hope you enjoy it!
