Wii for weight loss?

Does anyone use their Wii for fitness/weight loss? If so, what games do you prefer or had the best success with? I do have Just Dance and use the Just Sweat portion, but I think I need more options than just the one.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

One of my good friends had Wii Fit with the balance board. Not only is it a blast, bit it's great for weight loss. I also like the basic Wii Games for cardio. Wish my friend hadn't moved and taken her Wii with her. :-/

Just bought Wii fit plus tonight. So far so good and it seems all the balance exercises would help with riding too. Might have found exercise I can stick with.

EA Sports Active is fun, too.

I love cats, too! We should exchange recipes!!!

How do you like the Wii Fit? I have Just Dance which is great but I'm thinking about getting wii fit to have more variety.

So far we like it. Focus more on the yoga and strength training for fitness and weightloss and I leave the games as a sort of cool down. Lots of variety and since you check in for weight and such it hold you accountable and helps keep on track. I tend to work up a bigger sweat with just dance but this helps me target muscle areas and such, so between the two games (wii fit and just dance) it gives a nice balance for working out.
