I am sure you all know of the nintendo Wii. Well i myself have never been a nintendo fan, but boy is this thing good. I have been trying to lose weight for some time now as i am filling out a little with age. So i bought one of these for my son, now the good thing is the controller, it allows you to get right into the game and i have even found myself doing some of the actions while playing. Anyway to cut a long story short, i have had the thing 2 months and have dropped off nearly a stone, and they say that games consoles are not good for you. I beg to differ, if this takes off in a big way, i don't see why there should be any problems with obesity. Next time you are at the doctors and he says you are overweight, see if he will give you a prescription for a nintendo Wii, that should help.
The good thing is, you don't really see it as excercise while you are playing, it just seems like a different way to play a game, now obviously nintendo knew about this, hence why they brought out Wii fit, but it has to be doing something if people are buying them, they are hard to get a hold of in some places. So, if you want to shed a few try getting yourself a nintendo Wii and have some fun too.
