Wii Fit U Experiment – 2-Week Follow-Up


After using Wii Fit U, the Fit Meter, and continuing my exercise routine two more weeks, I have some not-so-surprising news to share. Everything points to Wii Fit U not only being a good place to keep track of your progress, but it is a great way to help you make progress.

After two more weeks, I found that I have lost another 0.59 from my BMI, four pounds, and a half-inch on my waist.

November 7, 2013 (Original start date)

  • BMI: 27.98
  • Weight: 188.9 lbs.
  • Waist: 37 in.


December 5, 2013 (End of 4-week experiment; beginning of 2-week extension

  • BMI: 26.71
  • Weight: 180.3 lbs.
  • Waist: 35 in.


December 21, 2013

  • BMI: 26.12
  • Weight: 176.1
  • Waist: 34.5 in.


So, after over six weeks of using Wii Fit U for daily 20-minute workouts, wearing the Fit Meter, making an effort to live more healthy, running at least three times a week, and tracking all my progress on Wii Fit U, I lost approximately 15 lbs., and I feel much better. I can honestly say that Wii Fit U helps. I am not saying it is something that will miraculously change your health overnight, but the thing is that it helps get you up and active. How does it do it? It makes it fun, and it gives you a great place to track progress.
