I'm beginning to wonder why we got the Wii Fit. Besides it talking trash about me to my kids, it really hasn't helped me with my weight-loss goals and has quite possibly ruined my self-image.
While pregnant, I was repeatedly subjected to the Wii Fit's veiled insults as I continued to gain weight. It would ask me why I thought I was putting on the pounds in spite of it's best efforts to slenderize me, but "Creating A New Life Within Me" was not an option it offered. I had to choose from "Late Night Snacking" or "Portion Size" instead, then read it's lecture on my presumed bad habits before continuing on. Once I had Baby, I was looking forward to shocking the Wii into silence with my amazing weight loss.
I did a Body Test when Baby was one week old. I only lost 4.4 pounds. WHAT?!? Baby weighed more than that! Maybe it was all that pudding I ate in the hospital...
Then, just before the New Year, I weighed myself again. This time? Almost 14 pounds. Yes! But was the Wii impressed? Nope. It merely said that I was progressing at a good pace and then suggested I use the Balance games so I wasn't quite so uncoordinated. I swear, that thing is never happy.
