From blogging about using the Wii Fit program to lose weight, hosting Twitter Parties, to creating a forum for other Moms to join in, the Wii Fit Mommies started a revolution in the fall of 2008. For 2009, Wii Fit Mommies and NewBaby.com have combined forces and have added video blogging, Vlogging, to the mix. NewBaby.com will also showcase Wii Fit Mommies with a special section and a Wii Fit Expert Mom to support this program to promote fitness in families.

NewBaby.com will be donating a Flip Video camera for a Mom to record her progress with this program while Nintendo has donated a Wii and Wii Fit console for the kick-off of this program a few weeks ago. This is just one of the events with prizes for participants planned for the New Year.
