got the Plus
Finally, I got the Wii Fit Plus.
Since I am not as fit as Don, and the Wii Fit has been pretty fun for us. We have been trying to beat each other with Wii Fit scores (related entry). I would say that Wii Fit was really a fun way to get exercise.
As mentioned earlier, the updated version of the popular Wii Fit was out few days ago, and I did not rush to get it. (Again, I am not one of those extremists who can't survive without the latest.)
The best part of Wii Fit Plus is the cost. The recommended retail price was only $30, and I got it for just $25 (after discount). (To Don: Antony is poor.) I don't think there's any new release Microsoft Xbox 360 games from Microsoft would cost only $30.

First, Don is not fit. You are making baseless assumptions again.
Second, I would just go with the cheaper, natural alternative of going outside.
Of course, you are fit.
Going outside costs money, I believe the indoor version is cheaper.
I am not fit, why is that "of course"?
I think $25 costs more than stepping out your front door, i.e. free.
Well, for you, you have free workout right outside your doorsteps during beautiful winter season in beautiful Boston and picturesque Quincy.
For us, going out for a gym membership costs lots more then $25 per month.
If only shoveling snow counted as a workout.
I said "going out", not "going out for a gym membership". There's nothing wrong with just walking or jogging a few kilometers or even exercising at home without the help of a Wii thing.
You missed the point again. You had to shovel snow, hence you are fit. We go out and nothing to shovel.
Window shipping inside a shopping mall can also be a 'workout' according to you then, since the total distance walked from one shop to another inside a shopping mall can be a few kilimetres.
As for exercise at home? Not many people can do workouts without expensive fitness equipments.
I had to shovel snow, hence I am fit? What sense does that make?
You drop a few pounds while you are window shopping only because you are draining your wallet too fast.
Why can't people do exercise at home? Just because media has convinced you that you need special equipment to do that at home doesn't mean there aren't other ways to do the same thing.
Looks like fun Antony.
You are getting the exercise from shovelling. Hence you must be fit. Simple.
As a matter of fact, the weight of my wallet stays almost the same, and actually increases when I do window shopping as I mainly use cards (a great way to get Awards points), and I am getting receipts.
Not many people are as determined as you that they are able to just do sit-ups,= and push-ups at home. The exercising aiding devices provide helps to many people.
If you like the original Wii Fit, you will love the improvement of this one, and the new games.
Being fit does not mean just exercise for one season of the year; that is a lifestyle thing.
I forgot, you like to let the bank know where you are shopping instead of carrying your own money instead.
If they are not determined, they will not be exercising - simple as that.
You guys with beautiful snows are lucky. Doing enough exercise during the season so there's no need to worry about the big Christmas meal.
I forgot, you are super-secret about everything.
As I said, not everybody is as determined as you. Hence they need some assistance from devices. Wii Fit is very cheap compared to exercise machines.
Unfortunately, it doesn't work that easily.
Carrying cash instead of plastic counts as "super-secret"?
So you mean to tell me that these people are trying to become less lazy, hence they buy stuff to make them less lazy? Somehow I find that unlikely.
They are getting a device for entertainment, as well as getting some exercise done. Was that because Wii Fit (Plus) is not your beloved Microsoft?
It has nothing to do with who made it, but rather the fact that I am being charged for something that I could just as easily do for free.
You wouldn't have said the same thing if it was Microsoft Fit (Plus).
Yes, I would have. You really need to understand that I have no emotional ties to any big companies like you seem to think I do.
