When I first got the original Wii Fit, I was on it daily. I never missed a day for several months. I made a conscience effort to be on it every day. However, that's when my job started to send me to places. I went to Washington D.C. (even went into the White House), Seattle, Sacramento, Las Vegas, etc.. And those were fun times. However, I purposely chose not to take my Wii with me on those trips. So, that's when I started missing some time on it. And some significant time at that too. Like, I was in Seattle for 6 weeks. Sacramento for 4 weeks. Las Vegas and Washington D.C. for 2 weeks, each. etc... I took all of these trips, within a year and a half span. So I ended up missing chunks of Wii Fit time, as well as gaming in general. When I returned from the trips, I'd be too tired to get on Wii Fit, and I figured, well, I missed a month already, what's one more day. However, I would eventually get right back on track.
But then, also because of these trips, I missed out on game time too. So I started forgoing my Wii Fit workouts to catch up on some games that were either in my backlog, or, that were just coming out that I wanted to get. So I got more and more focused on those games. Tho, I'd still jump on Wii Fit every now and then, but it wasn't daily. But only because I didn't have the time for it. Well, I mean, I did, but I preferred to catch up on my gaming instead.
Then Wii Fit Plus came out, and I got that too. However, I didn't play it nearly as much as I did the original Wii Fit. I had a regular routine with it too. It wasn't a daily routine, but still regular. At least 2 or 3 times a weeks. At first. After a while, there are just so many more games that just keep coming and coming and coming, that it's easy to fall behind on games, and want to play those instead.
Now, Wii Fit U is out. And this time, with a Wii Fit Meter. Also, this time around, I now have a goal to beat all of my games for my system. Currently I'm not that track with the Wii U and 3DS, as those are the first systems that I started this campaign with. So, I'm mostly caught up on my games. Which mean, instead of playing games that I haven't played during the 'gaming droughts', I'll have more time to go back and replay games, get 100% on previously beaten games, or, play Wii Fit U. So, being caught up on my games is an advantage for me. I mean, I plan on restarting my daily routine with the Wii Fit U, which I've already started. Haven't missed a day yet. However, I can never predict the future, but I do know that I won't be able to do the daily routine every single day. There will come a day where I will start to miss some time here and there. Tho now, I'm more prepared for it. Also, having the Wii Fit Meter on me constantly will be a constant reminder for me to at least boot up the game daily, if nothing else. To at least transfer that data over daily. Only takes a few moments to turn it on and transfer the data. So that should help out with progress on the game too.
When it comes to other people.. most people I know have either given up on it all together, or moved onto the other workout games, besides Wii Fit, like the Zumba workout and other Wii workout titles. Or, they've moved on to the Kinect workout games, so they can move freely without the Wii balance board in their way. So yeah, I still know a lot of people who still play games to work out. Most just don't use Wii Fit much anymore because it's the same routines, and they have more options elsewhere.
However, that said, most of those same people are excited for Wii Fit U. They have the demo, and bought the Fit Meter, and are enjoying. So yeah, they still are playing it. Overall, there are less people I know using it now than when Wii Fit first came out. But yeah, there are still a lot of people I know who love Wii Fit and still use it.
