Wii Fit

Has anyone tried the new Wii Fit? I got one this weekend. The first step, after entering your height and birth date, is to get on the board and have your weight measured giving the Wii your BMI. After that, you take a "balance test". It somehow puts all these things together and gives you your "Mii Age". After plugging in my height, and standing on the board for the various measurements and tests, I got my results: I am underweight, 55 years old (my actual age is only 38), off balance and 'much weaker' than I should be. Ah yes. That's the way to start my morning off right! I wonder if the folks over at Wii know about my medal??

If you were given such a sub-standard rating, I wonder what sort of Wii age the average armchair athelete would receive...

At least your Mii isn't pudgy like mine is :(

That's my point...this thing sounds like a disaster for the self-esteem!

I am on the fence -- my self-esteem does not take hits well, yet I so want a Wii Fit. Besides the intial assessment, has it been fun/useful/challenging?

So far, I really like it. Obviously you have to take the initial hit with a grain of salt. I'd like to think I'm not 'weak' although what it said about my balance is dead on...which is why I'm attempting yoga.
The more you do, the more you can 'unlock' - ie: right now, I only have access to a few yoga poses but it's building.

Hi Kimberly! I pre-ordered on Amazon about 3 weeks before it came out!
