As a middle-aged mom of five kids, I thought Wii sounded like a fun way to get my sorry self into shape. Just got it for Christmas. Don't have the Fit Plus yet, it's on order. In the meantime I've got the Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2009 so I have no excuse to put off getting started while waiting for UPS. I tried it today and it was a little weird to get going. I was running like crazy and my avatar was standing still until I figured out the way it wants me to move the remote and nunchuck handles. I made everything work with a little trial and error except the part where you're supposed to squat to pick up and throw a paintball grenade (something I do all the time in my everyday life, lol). I tried a million different movements and the avatar just stood there. I accidentally did it right once, but I'm not sure how. Can anyone here help me out with this?
