Hey guys,

Im new to these forums so bare with me Smile..

Anyway, I got kinect for my birthday yesterday and i thought last night when i was in bed that i would start using it for weight loss. Im about 15 Stone at the moment and im 5"8 and 23 years old. I would love to get down to about 11/12 stone so im looking to lose about 3 stone at least.

Im going to cut down on my chocolate/take-aways and other junk that is not really required (boredom eating).

My only game at the moment is Kinect Adventures but i will be soon purchasing Your Shape Fitness (about a week) and Kinect Sports (Xmas Time)

I will update this thread with how ive been going on, with weight loss recordings too at a weekly basis.

Today was my first proper go of kinect, and i was on it from 12pm - 8:30pm with breaks inbetween.

I am severely aching now though and was very hot/sweating.

Any Tips and advice would be gladly welcome Smile


LOL I'm need to lose about the same I'm about 14 1/2 stone, i like to get under 14 with in a week.
Kinect seems that it has the potential to help me lose the weight thats why im going to give it a serious try Big Grin
Thats the only reason I bought the thing to get fit and lose weight and maybe have some fun in the process.
Maybe we should have a weight loss leagueDodgy
8 and a half hours?!?! That's pretty crazy already, but you only played Adventures for that entire time? Wow, that's some real motivation.

I can't play Adventures for even 30 minutes...I get bored of it.
I'm on the journey with you through the Kinect! Good job on the new found exercise. I was going to tell you, if you have just been sedentary and need to start moving again, I would begin with the Kinect Sports, which has table tennis, bowling, soccer, boxing, track and field, and volleyball, and it's so much fun....and it's still a workout. It doesn't seem as strict and stiff as "having to exercise". Everyone who has played the sports game gets tired. Best wishes and maybe we can keep each other updated.
Thank you,
