Well, Wii Fit is literally made to do exersices and know your body
movements by your feet, I have it so I should know. The game is accurate.

But the wii fit is quite fun, obviously i didnt use it to loose weight but for the heck of it. Shame on the girl though, i mean isnt it kinda obvious not to believe a game? use a god damn mirror to see how fat and ugly you are, surely the parents had enough sense but apparently not. If your daughter isn't fat, then why the hell should you be worried. People like this piss me off, blaming video games for everything..."omggg my son killed someone....i blame manhunt"

Its pretty much the parents fault for allowing their son/daughter to buy and play the games in their own home...take responsibility morons.
Fucking win post.

IMO, this is part of the reason obesity is becoming more common. Back in the good old days, if you were obese, and someone called you a fatass, you'd try to lose some weight and change that, and deal with the criticism in the meantime. Now, if someone even implies that a fat person is fat, they start bitching about how everyone is picking on them and how low their self-esteem is and how it's unfair, etc. while doing nothing to solve their weight problem. Being fat, unlike many other things people are commonly picked on for, is something you have the ability to change, or avoid before it happens. So you should.

Re: Nintendo Tells Little Girl "She's Fat"!

I don't know why the girl is blowing it out of proportion....

BMI is not that accurate anyway. It doesn't take in the account the amount of muscle you have. You could be 5'10, 220 pounds and very built, the BMI will not know that and will say you are serverely overweight.

To get a semi-accurate test you need to do that one where they pinch different parts of your body (Can't remember the name of it now. >.<), and even that one is off by a bit most of the time.
Even taken with a grain of salt, 4'9" 84lbs. gives you a BMI of 18.2, which is actually in the "Underweight" category.

That said, how exactly did WiiFit screw up so badly it got an "Overweight" out of the exact opposite?

If Nintendo says she's fat, she must be fat.

It's just not good for me to do all the work for you, you'd never become independent if I did and you'd have to continue to rely on your parents like the average 4 year old.

Re: Nintendo Tells Little Girl "She's Fat"!

If the girl was fit as so claimed by the parents, then what is the big deal. If she was fit as she claims, then why should she care about what a video game says. If you bought the game to lose weight, then you have to come to grips of the harsh reality, but if you bought it for fun, then just excersize and be done with it

For her age, she could change weight anytime, considering she is near the age...
