I'm so excited I found this community! I'm Jenn, 22, and my boyfriend and I just got a Wii last month. We mostly got it because he's in love with everything wireless and we love the entire concept, but we're excited about the incentive to exercise, too.

I don't have a specific exercise regimen, but I've been trying to do something on Wii Sports every day. Usually I'll play a couple games of bowling, one or two of baseball, a couple random training activities and then take my fitness test. I try to play for at least a half hour, although I'm not terribly strict with myself in that respect. I play more on the weekends, as well. My Wii Fitness Age lately has been ranging from mid-twenties to early thirties... when I first took it, I was 69! Eek!

Our Wiisercise (lame? yeah probably) is being coupled with what we're calling F*** Fast Food February, in which we're boycotting fast food, since we tend to eat it far too regularly. We're not necessarily eating super healthy, although we're trying to be healthier, but we're trying to be less reliant on swinging through a drive-thru on the way home.

My boyfriend recently found out he has high blood pressure, so that's a big motivator in everything.

I weighed 134lbs at the beginning of February, and now I weigh 131lbs... not a huge feat, I know, but considering I've been on a gradual climb the last year and a half, I'm excited to be more or less balancing out.

Current Mood: chipper chipper

Hi and welcome!

Congrats on losing some pounds :)

"F*** Fast Food February" sounds like an awesome idea. I haven't had any this month so maybe I'll keep it up and try to for the rest of the year.

Thanks for joining :)

Thank you. :)

You know, considering that the bf is the one who came up with the idea, he is having the worst time sticking to it! On the 3rd or 4th we were sitting around and he suggested KFC, I told him we couldn't and he insisted that KFC wasn't fast food. I typed "Is KFC fast food?" into ask.com's search field and read to him, "Yum! Brands, Inc.--operator of fast food restaurants including KFC..." ;)

Is Subway considered a fast food? I guess it could be an exception to the rule...

It is better than putting more on, that's mostly what excites me. I'm by no means fat, maybe flabby, but not fat. If I can get some muscle tone going and at least maintain my weight, I'll be happy.

I'll try not to... I'll allow myself to eat it occasionally after February, if I want to that is, but I hope this month of fasting from it will make me less dependent on the drive-thru window.
