Can Wii Fit Make You Fit?

After canceling my gym membership yesterday, I decided to give my Wii Fit another try.  I’ve only used it a few times but I really like the idea of a) exercising at home and b) getting lots of kudos – which Wii Fit offers in spades. I should mention, though, that when I got on […]
