The Wii Fit wonders why I don't fall down when I walk. I'm not kidding.
It calculates your Wii age based on your actual age, your BMI, and (at least in my case) your score in a couple balance tests. I'm terrible at the balance tests. I can't stop over-correcting when my balance indicator shifts out of the target position the game wants it to be. Yesterday I got lucky, and the random tests didn't ask me to shift my weight: only to stand perfectly still and to walk in place. My Wii age is 25, but I know it will spring back up to the mid-40's when I test it again.
Others have complained that the Fit's principle measurement of success is weight. My weight is pretty good; my BMI score is a click or two above ideal, but still within normal. Fit suggests I drop 15 pounds to get my BMI down to 22. After a couple days of resisting, I started actually trying, cutting out desserts, snacks, extra carbs.
Actual conversation that just happened: Mike walked into the room and said he was going to go pick up some donuts. "Do you want anything?"Weightloss and domestic tranquility: it's going to be a tough balancing act.
"No, thanks. Well, maybe I should eat something."
"I'm going to Donut Kitchen."
"Oh, well, then nothing, thanks."
"Want me to stop at Krogers?"
"Dodger," Mike says, addressing the cat who is waiting for his morning dose of butter, "Daddy's being cranky."
