Well, crap. Did you know that Wii Fit plays sad music if you do a pretty sad job in the slalom ski game? I did my very best, and yet, my Mii started crying and sad music played. It’s enough to make my Mii commit Wii suicide off the tight rope game.
So… obviously, the Wii finally came. Nintendo (well, their promotional ad agency, really) had some logistical problems with the contest and sending me a functioning Wii. But, after a bit of discussion and escalation, I finally have all the goodies.
This really is a fun toy. A bit depressing at the moment, but fun. After it did my body scan, the happy-girl Wii Fit voice told me, “that’s overweight!” Hurray for me! Then she proceeded to tell me that I should make some goals to lose weight. I guess so. Oh, I’m also “unbalanced,” which my husband and I thought was really funny. I’ll have to remind him that that was a physical assessment, not mental. Thankfully, he’s unbalanced too. It gave me a Wii age of 40, which is sad since I’m really 30.
So, I told it I want to lose 13 pounds in 2 months. I’d love to just get to a point where sad music doesn’t play. If only I could find a way to set that as my Wii goal.
