Wii diet

Two years after my daughter was born, I decided it was time to get serious about losing the weight I had put on while pregnant with both of my kids. So two weeks ago I got a Fitbit Flex. It looks like a bracelet, but it measures your activity throughout the day. There is an app that goes with it on my phone, which allows me to log what I eat, and shows me a real-time graph of how many calories I have eaten vs. burned.

But my scale doesn’t have a battery right now, and I haven’t got one around the house. And of course I can never remember to buy one when I’m at the store. So I am using my Wii Fit program both as an exercise program and as a scale. When I start my daily workout, it will weigh me first and then say out loud “That’s Obese!”

Tonight it said “That’s Overweight!”

I got excited and started jumping up and down. Tommy just looked at me and shook his head.

“You’re the first woman I’ve ever seen get excited when the TV tells her she’s fat.”
