Folks, something incredible happened this weekend. I discovered the fruits of owning a Nintendo Wii. First of all, for those of you who don't know what it is, it's the latest Nintendo gaming sensation, where the games are interactive. As you play the games, you actually act out the moves of your player. For example, there is Wii sports where the options are tennis, boxing, golf, bowling, and baseball. And let's say you play tennis. You actually act out the moves as if you're really playing tennis. It's not completely the same because you're not running around after the ball. But you move quite a bit and you perform the upper body moves like the swings and backhands. Plus I found myself in the receiving position a lot of the time, rocking back and forth like you would if you were actually playing. Let me tell you, a day later, I was incredibly sore. My upper body: arms; back; my abs, and my hips were all tense and sore. And that's just tennis. The boxing game requires a lot of endurance. Based on my findings this weekend, I am going to conduct a test. If I play Wii everyday for 30 mins to an hour (have to decide how long) and eat sensibly, how much weight will I lose in 30 days????? I can see the headlines now: Nintendo launches worldwide marketing campaign targeting women ages 18 and above: Nintendo Wii increases chances of weight loss in women by 50%!!!!! Not to mention the benefits of playing with your DH or SO. You can also host Wii parties. It's a ton of fun. I highly recommend that folks go out and get one.
