I've discovered the technique for Wii Sports tennis power serve. :) Throw your arm (hang onto the controller of course) straight up in the air, then gently but quickly flick forward+down. I still can't do it every time, but I can do it enough to have Cro growling. He was able to return two of my power serves for the first time though, so I'd better find another technique before that one becomes useless to me! He's also figured out that my weakness is returning from the left ... so I've been practicing to become more comfortable from that left corner.
And all that has nothing to do with the WOE other than it's great exercise which is fun and needs no motivation to keep going other than wanting to win. Rematch!!!
I don't know if the Russel Stovers was a good thing or a bad thing. My weight is the very same today and I'm disappointed that it's the same.
