this is great - i got one for Christmas as well but it hasn't made it out of the box.
What do you find most helpful with the Wii Fit?  I don't want to spend $100 on accessories that I won't use!

I don't need lose weight  But I have heard that the Wii is a pretty neat way to do it :thumbsup:

not everyone has to lose weight but everyone should still get exercise.

I want one so bad too I was hoping to get one for Christmas for my girls and me but I wasn't able to. I too would like to know what are the necessary accessories to have with it. I would be using it with my 2 teen daughters hopefully simultaneously. Happy new Year

I want to get an exercise bike to put in my basement and then go ride it everyday. I think it would be a great way to  get me ready to ride my real bike.

I've had the Wii fit for a while.  It totally helped lose the few extra pounds of baby weight.  Just got the Wii fit Plus, hoping the individual routines will help tone up.

The wii itself is a GREAT game system but the balance board/wii fit plus is great exercise and good for balance and strength.  Accessories not necessory but make it a lot more fun.  I would recomend a golf club and tennis racket if you get nothing else..... it helps your game a lot!  Big Lots have almost all the accessories needed for only $5 each!

I enjoy Wii Fit, I need to get Wii Fit Plus.  I also have the EA Active and the additional exercises, but I just got that and havent tried it yet.

I didn't have anything extra.  The running alone was great, the aerobics and strenth training were really good too.  I started out for just a half hour a day than worked my way up to an hour in the morning and an hour after the kids were in bed.

i just played wii for the first time on christmas eve and had i tried it earlier i probably would have bought one for my family for christmas. but now i'm considering waiting on that because this spring microsoft will be releasing a new program for the xbox360 thats supposed to be much better than the wii and wont require any additional accessories or controllers.

I might look into getting a Wii - they seem fun and useful at the same time.  how much are they with all the bells and whistles? 200? 300? 400? 500?

I guess now they're around $199 which is great especially considering I got mine when it first came out for $300.
