Because of both patellar tendons growing the wrong way & damaging the knees before they were chiseled free & moved to the correct positions in my early 20's, I've had to have one knee replaced & the other will need it at some point.
I'm overweight now, that comes from not being able to even go up or down stairs for 2 years, etc. before the replacement (doc said I was too young).
Jogging? My ortho would kill me! Besides, bone on bone pain seriously sux. Walking? I wish, but unless there's a nice unpaved route, that's out because of the impact damage. Swimming? No pool close by. Exercise bike, got it!
So YES! I need the wii fit. I want to be able to go hiking again. (sleeping in the clouds is fantastic!!) I'm not even 50 yet.
There are so many things I can't do until I get back in shape. I can't stop the future replacement of my left knee, but I'm going to do what I can to make the one I have now last longer and aid the future recovery time.
And a word of advice. Don't be so quick to judge. Just because you are lucky enough to be able to play sports, jog, etc., not all of us are.
