I am 41 and am happily married to an extremely lucky man, which makes me a very lucky woman. I worked multiple jobs as a single mother raising two children. With my last child (11) I decided to be a stay at home mom.

That is when my journey began.

Weight Loss and Ketosis

I can't believe so many people are trying to reach ketosis. It is a serious condition.

I am Type 2 diabetic. My doctor put me on Atkins. After a month and a half I am off of one of my diabetes medications. I'm definitely taking this condition seriously.

Kinect or Wii???
We have a Wii. The games I played (shooting, cow racing, golf, bowling, billiards) were more like games, but standing up to play them and movement was better than couch potato time.

There are a few that I've played recently that did work up some sweat. Tennis and boxing. Tennis took some time to get me sweating, but boxing had me sweating by the second round in the first match. 20 minutes of boxing had me sweating more than 20 minutes on my treadmill.

If your current exercise is getting off the couch to get a refill, then yeah even the Wii games are more exercise. If you want a Wii game to make you sweat, play boxing.

We got ours used off Craig's list. It was only $100 for the Wii, 2 controllers, Wii fit with board, Wii sports, and Wii games.
