A MUM who was too fat for a Nintendo Wii has lost eight stones after being shamed into dieting.
Deb Rose, who was 22st 6lb, was mortified when she tried to play on the computer console with her daughter.
The Wii Fit flashed up that she was too heavy – and even made her computerised character explode.
It was the wake-up call the 33-year-old needed.
Deb, who was a size 28, said: “I was so miserable but didn’t realise how sad I was until I look back at that time.”
The Wii Fit, which helps users keep track of their fitness and weight with interactive exercises, states the maximum weight for gamers is 21.5st.
Deb, of Brownhills, Staffordshire, joined WeightWatchers and swapped biscuits, crisps and curries for fruit and low-fat meals.
She added: “Things like going shopping for clothes used to be an emotional trauma but now I have a wardrobe full of clothes.”
And she’s back on the Wii Fit with her daughters Alana, eight, and Summer, two. She added: “As soon as I’d lost enough weight to use the Wii, I was on it.”
