I did it today. I've been hunting around various secret websites for week snow trying to gamble where and when a local Target or Circuit City/Best Buy would have a Nintendo Wii in stock but all to no avail. And after reading about this guys experiment with the "Wii as Exercise" experiment I am even *more* interested. So I went to eBay and found good* deals for two of them (one for me and one for my little brother who's birthday is coming up soon).
So, come next week I'm going to start my virtual cross training program just like this guy did - 30 minutes a day, every day. I'll post updates each week and see if I can beat his 9-lbs loss in 6 weeks. I'm so stoked!
* Well..."decent". Everyone on eBay is getting somewhat shafted on these, but at least I'm not paying $600+ plus shipping like this sucker (yes, I realized that one came with an extra controller but controllers are cheap, and that's more than $200 over the going eBay rate currently)
