    Do you Wii Fit?

    I'm thinking about getting a Wii Fit. I'm out of shape, and alongside eating right and going for walks, I think having a Wii Fit would be a good idea to get back into shape. The one thing that irks me though is the $90 price tag. Do you use your Wii Fit? How often? Do you feel healthier?
