Today, for my birthday, my friends and family gave me: A Wii Fit, a free year at the gym and a book of diet recipes. They didn't consult with each other. I've asked for "something corresponding to me". FML

SERIOUSLY. I pay every month to get to go to a gym. And would KILL for a wii and wii-fit. There are so many ridiculously awesome games designed around getting your heart pumping. My cousin uses Wii and the work out games and has visibily lost weight. She does it every morning and says its fun because she feels like shes either just playing a game or working with a trainer.

To the other commenters: Think about it. The OP is probably very over-weight. Or at least moderately. Enough for her friends and family to feel some concern individually... So their idea of a good gift is probably as far away from physical activity as possible. I had a friend who HATED doing physical activity. I mean we would go out to the beach and park so we could walk around and enjoy the day (we weren't going swimming...) and the whole time she complained about how far we had to walk. It was like seriously? It's an extra 4 blocks. This person is the type who prefers being on the computer and who's idea of socializing is sitting around watching TV. It's sad too, cause these types of people don't realize the benefits to being active that have nothing to do with level of fitness. You're happier when you move around, you experience more, and it helps with social skills.

Sigh. Sad...

Totally! And if you asked for gifts corresponding to you, then maybe they just thought that you are interested in being healthy, not that you NEED to lose weight. I would love for someone to give me those gifts. Be grateful that you have such awesome friends who obviously care about you.

Agreed. OP, you are being slightly ungrateful. Many would beg you upside-down to get that membership. The wii fit and the awesome cookbook to top it all off? Man, you're lucky. On the ever brighter side you have friends who care for you and your health.
