Does anyone use the Wii Fit to lose weight? Does it work?!

I was just wondering if anyone here actually uses their Wii Fit to lose weight / exercise? If so, does it actually work or is it all just a gimmick?

I have had my Wii Fit since release and I have never really used it for it's actual purpose and to be honest, have rarely used it since I got it!

I want to try and exercise more but don't want to be forking out £50 a month for gym membership.

Do you think if I used the Wii Fit regularly it would do the job?

That is the thing though, I do plan to use it every day (well I say that now, lol).

I really just want to exercise more as I really don't exercise enough anymore and the weight is starting to creep on.

My missus uses it everyday when I'm at work and the nippers having a kip, she runs and does kick boxing also but she reckons it's helped with her weight loss.

much lol'ing at this point....

"I want to lose weight but dont want to spend cash in the process."....did you mind spending cash in the process of putting it on and munching your food? :lol: ...sorry OP ,,,,much cynicism I have....

easy way to lose weight...and cheapest way......walk.....for 30mins to an hour a day....walk...costs you nothing and its good for your health.....and it works....:-D

Erm ok, first of all I am not overweight I am saying I want to do more exercise and lose a bit of weight, maybe a few pounds. I am a Size 10, I don't want to go any smaller than that.

Secondly, I eat healthily and do plenty of walking it is just that I have been a bit slack recently with my exercising so I have put on some weight. I use to go to the gym but didn't renew my membership as I couldn't get there everyday so I didn't see the point of paying a ridiculous amount of money for something I wasn't getting full use of.

I don't really appreciate your comments, you obviously seem to think I am a fat slob!

I am simply asking if it is worth trying out the Wii Fit rather than rejoining a gym!

Try it, as I said my missus swears by it, and she can fit in in when the nipper is kipping. Judging by some of the comments mind, she should leave the nipper asleep whilst she goes for a run/jog.

ive had it for 100days+ and use it every other day and mush of lost a stone

Thank you to the people who made the useful comments.

I am going to try out the Wii Fit for a month using it everyday for an hour or so. If I feel that it isn't doing that much then I will rejoin my gym.

I walk loads already. I usually walk to work each morning (about six miles) and sometimes walk home.

Since you already have it, why don't you just try it out instead of asking on here?

I am thinking outside the box,as I am in Rio, so bare with me.

Does juggling lose weight if so can i borrow those steven:whistling:

had my baby 9 weeks ago couldnt do alot of exercise as had a c-section so about the 3rd week i bought an ijoy ride and used that as well as my tredmill every night and have lost over 4 stone less than what i weighed before i had my little man and the ijoy ride has toned up my legs so much and my bum best thing i ever got x

my o/h would recomend it .he has lost just over 3 stone since xmas using it combined with healthy eating.hes even training to run a half marathon in oct something he couldnt of done b4 xmas:thumbsup:

[SIZE="3"][FONT="Comic Sans MS"][COLOR="Purple"]I bought a wii fit in February, I've always been very slim but put on weight when I had problems with my thyroid - found it very difficult to shift but have used the wii almost every day and I'm now well on the way to being my original weight. I find it really suits me, it motivates me and I prefer it to going to the gym as it's cheaper and you don't waste time getting there and back. Good luck.[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]:thumbsup:

The one game you get with the console isnt the best and gets broing quite quickly but i understand there a lots of different ones you can buy now? Which ones do people have and what do you think of them?

of course it helps!

movement = calorie loss (unless you're eating one of the ginsters £1 slurry bargains at the same time!)

enough said (apart from this is one of the dumbest questions ever posted lol)

In all seriousness, I believe its quite a good aid to lose weight. The only benefit of a £50 gym membership is that you mentally force yourself into getting your money's worth whereas it's quite difficult to brush off the cobwebs from your balance board when its under the sofa.

I get more exercise on mine through dusting it monthly!

The most overhyped gadget in history on a par with the Sinclair C5!

I must admit I haven't used mine since falling down the stairs and tend to just dust it instead too lol

Concentrate on the stepper one too - I found that the 10 minute free step done 3 times a day was getting me fitter but like I said, not been on since the fall (I should do though).
