Submission + - Gaming your way to fitness

MC Jiggles writes: Is your former self a shadow of who you currently are? Ars Technica has an article on using video games to drop those pounds gained over the holidays. Using DDR 2 Extreme, Yourself Fitness, and EyeToy Kinetic on the PS2, the author managed to lose almost 20 pounds. 'Do these games make it easier to lose weight? Of course not; these two months took a lot of hard work, and I came close to quitting more than once. There is no "easy" way to get the pounds off. They do make it a little bit more enjoyable and put weight loss in a context that was more comfortable for me than a gym or a personal trainer.'
