We recently (ok several months ago) got a Biggest Loser game for the Wii. I did it for the first time today and OH. MY. GOODNESS. I can't believe how difficult! I'm having to adjust down the level of difficulty and the length of the workout. But I am soo excited to get started. Not just losing weight (ideally, I'd like to lose around 20 pounds eventually), but just being active again! It's been so long since I've felt capable of moving. I finally feel able to start learning how to be a normal person again! (Well... "normal".... it's all relative!) :party0049:

Congratulations!!! I know how exciting it is to be able to start exercising again and feeling a little like your old self. It's a great day! :-)
Diagnosed with Graves' Disease and Hashimoto's Disease in February 2010. :sad0049: Total thyroidectomy on July 20, 2010. explode Dealing with these diseases has been the longest journey of my life. If you don't have patience before you are diagnosed with thyroid disease, you will have no choice but to learn to be patient. Thyroid disease is a journey. It's a marathon, not a sprint. Everything takes time. :hugs:

Do you have the wii Fit PLUS? If so, that game is SO much FUN! Especially the marching band one... I would just do that, but the kiddos scratched up the disk and now it doesn't work at all :(
