Wii Weight Loss Plan

A friend of mine from the Inktank forums has started the Wii Weight Loss Plan and has already starting to get some press coverage.

J.R. Cook (aka Normalguy) has developed a plan to lose 80 pounds by eating better and using his Wii game system as a workout tool.

The idea behind Wiiweightlossplan.com came to me the first day that I had received and started playing my Nintendo Wii back in early January. I knew after a couple hours of playing Wii Sports (and a few sore muscles later) that this gaming system could really be a good workout and could probably help me get back into shape. Best of all though, it was FUN.

You can learn more about his plan and his progress by visiting his site. If you’ve never played Wii Sports, let me just assure you that you do get a workout.

    Well I guess no one can accuse the guy of sitting down and playing video games all days. Actually I think the whole idea has some merit to it. Now, if only I can afford to buy the Wii game console and games, I can get started on some of those Wii exercises.

    Losing weight is definetly hard work.I use to overeat,but have found alot of strenght in keeping it under control.Since then, the feeling of success I felt by sticking to my plan to loose weight and stop over eating, has kept me motivated.
