I've started Dance Central on xbox Kinect. I love to dance, so I tried the demos for it and Zumba (free to download through xbox live) and I liked the Dance Central better. It seemed to be able to *see* what I was actually doing better. My thirty minutes is always up before I expect, and all the songs I know which makes it more fun for me because I love to sing along! I also wanted to make this a team challenge to try and get the people playing the same game in the same group, but it wouldn't let me. My computer has issues with some websites lately. I'm really excited about this challenge, and working 58 hours a week at a desk job I need the motivation to get up and move! Please post here what you'll be playing and on what console. Once it's time to start the challenge I'll make stickys so everyone can post their progress under their game/console Smile

I have 68 lbs to lose to reach my real goal (healthy weight, I'm 4'9"Wink but I've not set a date yet. It's hard to do any exercise when you have a full schedule! I work 58 hours a week at a desk job, and I have my kids half the time, or I would have put more workouts in the goals! I wanted to make it doable for me (selfish me) I go to Disney World and Universal Studios in the middle of October, so I definitely want to stay on track with this! So glad you joined and you'll be doing what I am. I only have the first Dance Central, but if I beat it before this challenge is up I'll have the next one! I love leveling up Smile I've not figured out how to get it into workout mode yet, so I'm just beginning with it. You got this Smile

Sadly, the first one I don't think really had a workout mode Sad the good news is if you get the others you just enter the codes to import your songs and dances from 1 - into 2 and 3 and 3 is the best workout mode so far - it even lets you set what and how many songs on a playlist - multiple play lists - so you could have a long workout or a short work out or anything in between, and it lets you set goals like how often you want to dance and it keeps track of all of it - plus it tells you approximately how many calories burned. and hey ... WE got this! It will be good to have someone to hold me accountable Very Happy

Dance Central on XBox. I have all three versions and love it. I have set up playlists and it goes from one song to the other without pausing. Love it! Can't wait to see how everyone does. I have around 70 pounds to lose hopefully by my birthday, December 19.

On the first one in the settings it shows one, I just didn't know how to get to it. Maybe it's just teasing lol I have Dance Central 3 too, so maybe I'll use it because it does sound better Smile It's always better doing it together Smile And I want to learn how to Douggie lol Do you have to have DC2 or can you just load the songs from 1 into 3? I don't have 2 yet. I'm so glad y'all've already played, sounds like you're going to be teaching me! So far I love it though. Only 4 days till we start Smile

If you have the original packaging with the numbers on it, you can add it right into DC3 and you will have all of them to choose from. Its great.

C-c-c-combo breaker! I actually don't have an x-box but I'll be playing Stepmania on my computer. (Dance pad arrives in mail on Thursday.) I used to play DDR when I DID have an x-box, but then it got red ring of death lol. I have over 200 pounds til my goal weight, but my mini goal is to lose 50-60 pounds by new years. I also have no job so I'll probably try to get 30m-1h of exercise a day every day, though I'll need breaks most likely. Let's have lots of fun! xD

I opened and tried DC3 out tonight, and it seems harder than DC1 lol I couldn't even get the walk right to the YMCA lol but it's all good, as long as it's fun Smile I went ahead and set up the fitness part, but I have to get 360 more points before I can add my DC1 songs to it. I'm glad to have someone join that is doing something different Smile I was wanting to see which games got the best results. I work 58 hours a week, or I would have set the weekly exercise amount higher. (Sorry for being selfish) I have 5 days left of my steriods from my poison oak, and then hopefully I'll start back down on my weight. Steriods always makes me gain, but I'm so allergic to that stuff it won't go away on its own! Can't wait to get started Smile

I will play Sports Champions, Sports Champions 2, Pixlejunk 4am, and The Fight: Lights Out on the PlayStation 3. I will try to sneek in my Dance Dance Revolution titles for the Playstation 2. It is nice to see other gamers that can understand the value of their systems!

It will be okay. I know starting these things can be tricky while dealing with life.
