First - I would like to say that I have Hubby's permission to write the following blog post. He is comfortable with me discussing his weight issues and how we (as a family) are working together to become healthier.
Many of our family and friends know that Hubby has struggled with his weight for quite a while (as in: since he was 13). Right before our wedding, he had lost lots of weight. Then, in 2008, we purchased the Wii Fit which really helped. He was focused on doing it almost every day and saw major results. Up until GO was born, when he began to taper off his workouts.
Then, around May, the project team he is on at work went into high gear and he stopped working out. It's been a battle since then. He gained a little over 20 pounds in 5 months.
Right after Thanksgiving, Hubby and I were with the Caterpillars in Target and saw the Wii Fit Plus. For only $20 we upgraded our Wii Fit game to Wii Fit Plus.
I am super proud of Hubby's commitment to his health. Plus, he feels so motivated that he has taken the Half Marathon plunge and will be running the ING Half Marathon in March! So, if you own the Wii Fit, I highly recommend upgrading to the Wii Fit Plus.
The Skateboarding is my favorite - and it really works my abs!
