Default Wii Victory!!

I stepped onto my Wii Fit today and, for the first time ever, did not hear "That's Obese" when I did it!!!

"That's Overweight" has a much better ring to it

Someday, I hope to hear ...what does it say? "That's normal"?

AWESOME!!!

On a side note.. or a note to self... you (I) DO NOT want a Wii Fit, because a few days of hearing "That's Obese" would result in it being smashed into pieces! Some people have more courage than I do for sure!!

Congrats! I can't wait for my Wii to tell me I'm overweight. I wonder does it fuss at people who are underweight too? hmmm, gonna have to find a really skinny person and plop them onto my wii board, but I don't know any people THAT skinny - oh well!

I'd definitely have to murder that thing if I couldn't turn off that option.

But congrats, that is a huge milestone!

That's a good question! I hadn't thought of that. I don't think I know any to try it on either. Unless I put my 6 year old daughter on and say she is a 30 year old woman!

No way!?!

Thanks everyone for the congrats! The really cool thing about the Wii Fit for me is that is keeps track of all of my body tests/weights so I can look back at how far I've come since we got it last Christmas. WOW!!

Congratz momof5k. I am also looking forward to that day.

CONGRATS! I'm also waiting for the day it says I'm overweight. It drives me crazy watching my bmi number go all the way to the end because I just max it out. And then hearing "that's obese" ARRRGH! lol I wanna throw that thing out the window.

That's alright though, I'll show that little plastic devil!

Keep up the good work.
