I never thought I'd get involved with the Wii Fit program, but here I am about three weeks into wearing the Fit Meter, playing the balance board games, and working on a training regimen in Wii Fit U. Most surprisingly to me, I'm really enjoying it. How did I end up here? Exercise has never been a priority for me because of my traditionally poor health and my love of being stationary, but following my medical drama this year I've found myself in a unique position. I lost over 140 lbs in 2013 and the start of 2014 due to serious illness and ended up having to gain weight back over the summer to reach a healthy size. I'm a point now where I don't need to lose weight, but I don't need to gain any either. I need a light exercise program that encourages toning up and rebuilding lost muscle. Since I'm still healing from surgeries, I also need a program that doesn't end with me sweating or doing too much vigorous movement. Wii Fit U seemed like the answer, so I bought the whole starter kit: game, balance board, and Fit Meter pedometer on sale at a Best Buy four days before my July surgery, then put it aside until I was healthy enough to start on it.
