    I treated myself to the Biggest Loser game for the Wii earlier in the week, and almost pounced on the poor postie when she delivered it this morning. Ripping open the envelope, loading the game, the obligatory weigh-in and height details entered, chose my trainer ... and we're off! I've been using Wii fit plus for about a month and love it - and had worked up to around 90 minutes exercise a day ... but I couldn't even manage 12 minutes on the Biggest Loser without collapsing :8855: To add insult to injury, apparently I only burnt 19 calories :sigh: Wii fit aerobic games give me at least a 60 or 80 calorie burn for the same length of time, and feel a lot easier. Something is definitely amiss! Having said that, I loved the Biggest Loser, and will see where I get at the end of my 4 week challenge :)

    I used Wii Fit/Plus for ages and really enjoyed it. Then I tried EA Active Sports. Thats what gave me a work out!! It is brilliant! If you have a bit of spare cash, I would def recomment trying it out xx

    Thanks for the recommendation, I'll look out for Active Sports ... Biggest Loser is proving a challenge, though I do miss the fun of the Wii fit plus. I am now trying to do both, on alternate days, but think the novelty might already be wearing off. I've been busy the last couple of weeks, and my preferred 'exercise' time (home, alone, in my pyjamas before I say hello to the world) hasn't been so easy and although I have the best of intentions of making up time in the evening, it just doesn't seem to happen. I'm working from home for the rest of the week, so will see if that rekindles my love affair with both games!
