I've decided to get serious about losing weight.
When it comes to exercise I'm one of those people who will get motivated for like a week and then just stop. I've decided it's about time to get SERIOUS about everything and actually reach my goal eventually. I'm 20 years old, 5'9'', and weigh about 225. I've been heavy since elementary school. So obesity is nothing new to me. I've gotten to the point where I've had enough of it. I just recently got the Kinect for Christmas, and have bought Dance Central 2 and Zumba. I figured these would be great to throw into a workout routine! I also figured getting outside support from other people along the same path would keep me going. I read some of the weight loss stories on here and they are absolutely inspiring! Heart

My goal is to lose at least 50 pounds. That would put me at about 175...

I'm anxious and excited to start my weight loss adventure, and have some fun along the way! I'm just ready for it. Here's to a healthier life! Smile

I unfortunately can't. Thanks for the offer though! I can't get any internet faster than dial-up where I live. I have to use an air card from Verizon. I have a feeling using Xbox Live on that would use my monthly usage limit up in no time flat. It's depressing actually. Haha Smile

Keep posting Pink, I am starting this also. I would love to hear your progress. I got a 360 with kinect for Christmas with YS, I have gotten Zumba I wasn't sure if that would be useful for a guy or not. I'm shooting for 30 pounds.

Wink RE: I've decided to get serious about losing weight.
After reading some of these testimonials, I think I'm going to jump on the bandwagon. I'm 26, 5'8 and currently weigh 250ish. I used to be active and played on high school and College baseball and football teams but since graduating 3 years ago I let myself go. I have a question for all of you Kinect enthusiasts: Which game do you think will tone/cut me up? I am a pretty good dancer and can do about 25 - 30 pushups without losing form. My goal is around 190 but I want to start realistic (losing 15 pounds to start)

I bought the Kinect to get my lazy A$$ off the couch so help me reach my goal!

most of the kinect games are good workouts! the sports games include Kinect Sports and Kinect Sports Season 2. Kinect Adventures requires a good amount of energy (especially if you're jumping to get the speed boost). The Wipeout games can get you wiped out physically.

Dance Central 2, Dance Central, and Just Dance 3 (no experience with The Black Eyed Peas Experience or Michael Jackson).

for the exercise games, there's UFC Personal Trainer with lots of punching and kicking. There's Your Shape Fitness and Your Shape Fitness 2012. There's Zumba Fitness and The Biggest Loser which both have online multiplayer. Jillian Michaels Fitness Adventure makes it a game (looks like Tomb Raider). There's EA Sports Active 2.

even the poorly reviewed Fighters Uncaged will give you a good workout.

lots of great options and I only listed a few.

I don't see why you couldn't do the Zumba. It seems like it's kinda woman oriented a little, but maybe that's just because the instructor is a woman. You might be able to change the instructor... I don't know. I think it's meant for both genders though! But who cares. As long as you have fun!! I felt so dumb the first time I did it, but I've continued to use it for a few more days and I have a little bit more fun every time I do it. Seriously, go shake your tush and have some fun!

RE: I've decided to get serious about losing weight.
Thanks for the encouragement so far I have lost 11 pounds using my kinect and I have started eating better. I feel so euphoric right now and i hope to keep the trend going. I ended up buying Dance Central 2 and I am currently doing YSFE 2 workouts that are very fun and challenging at times. I plan to knock those calories out!!!

RE: I've decided to get serious about losing weight.
I think when you want to lose weight then one must take it very seriously other way it is not possible as so many tempting things come in your way to get away from your aim... to lose weight..
Good that you have lost 11 pounds thats great stick to it to knock out calories.
One of the better workout that may help you to achieve your goal.
