My mother-in-law bought my kids a Wii for Christmas, and although I’m not a big video game gal, it turns out I like my cyber bowling. And the tennis is pretty fun. And I might even play a round or two of late-night golf.

So, naturally, like every good junkie, I am looking for ways to enhance the buzz. I thought Wii Fit might be the healthiest choice I could make. I really prefer to exercise in the comfort of my home -- I have a treadmill that I use regularly -- so the Wii fills that need.

But can you really get in shape from using the Wii Fit?

Intuitively I question a video game of any kind doing something positive for me. Obviously, I have not tried the Wii Fit, so if I my intuition is off, enlighten me.
