Just wanted to let everyone know that Target has Wii games on sale, Half off. I just bought my copy of The Biggest Loser for $19.95! So excited to get started and happy to find it for only $20 after reading this thread and thinking I missed out on the sale at Kmart.
So, go look for it at your store!

On wii fit if you customize a work out you dont have to go back to the main screen to go to the next....

I havent got the BL yet but that is my next purchase!

I just purchased this today (from Target online, thanks Sarby!). I also have Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus, but I'm not crazy about either one :/ I'm looking forward to this one!

My Target was out of them, and online was showing it for $39 for some reason. Luckily I found it for $19 at BestBuy.com. I did store pickup, so I'll be picking it up and getting started with it tonight. We just got our Wii last week and so far I haven't been that impressed with the Wii Fit Plus. It's fun to play with, but I don't feel like I am seriously burning as many calories as it says. I'm looking for something that is a little more like a real workout tape; I hope this is it.

If you don't live near a BestBuy, shipping is only $3, so with the $19.99 game that's only $23. Not bad. I got mine for Christmas and am about to pop it in for the first time. Yay!

I just got mine today, and IDK what to think about it yet. The workouts are interesting and challenging, but you play as one of the BL characters. It would be nice to be able to 'make yourself' on there... i was also under the impression that it would keep track of calories burned... am i missing something?

OMG the light exercise kicked my butt. My quads were so sore I could barely get up the stairs. I think I don't have enough room to do some of the exercises properly though. I def need to stretch more as well!
I thought I saw someone say the calories were tracked too, but I haven't looked to find that in the game yet.

I looooove the exercises on the Biggest Loser game.

I'm having a little issue though. I chose my player to be Ali. So I did my first weigh in today and it pops up on the screen that I'm 211 lbs, which is down 3 lbs but on the weigh in screen behind Ali's character it said starting weight was 235 and was down to 230! Why does that not reflect my weight??? I found that to be really dumb.

I just checked online at Target and Best Buy and they have the Wii BL game for $39.99. I must have missed the sale.

I am going to stop by Kmart on my way home. Maybe they will have it in stock.
