    Hi I've got a Wii fit & they are sooo easy to use & set up.

    You will get a work-out & it can be as easy or difficult as you wish. The more you use it the more work-outs are 'unlocked'.

    I got 'biggest loser' for Christmas & can't wait to have a go.

    Have fun :)

    Lost 10 stones on LL/Exante a couple of years ago, have regained several stone so giving WW a go.
    You will find it easy to set up as the others have said. My favourites are the boxing and step. It's great fun - enjoy!

    Thanks for the replies peeps. :)

    Do you know, does the thing you stand on work on carpet, or does it have to be on a hard surface?

    How accurate are the scales??

    its fine on carpet BL, I dont think the scales are totally accurate but they do show the 'overall trend'

    I havent used mine for ages am expecting it to say "where the hell have you been, i thought you were dead !!" when i next turn it on !!

    I love my Wii and the balance board. I have just got Wii Fit Plus for Christmas so looking forward to trying that out.

    I find it works fine on carpet and often find the scales approx 3-4 lighter than at LL.

    Have fun!

    I'm getting the Just Dance @pay day - have heard it is brilliant - I love my wii fit & fit plus - the majorette & boxing & step are my favourite -it is a bit addictive though as I constantly want to "have another go" to see if I can get a better score lol

    I'm also thinking of getting a Wii. We went to friends over Christmas and had such a laugh playing with their Wii. Do you really think its worth getting one? If it helps with loosing some extra inches I'm in!
