Are you a woman tired of letting the fun things in life pass you by because you've been overweight? Too much time has gone by worrying about what others will say or think. People can be brutal sometimes with their comments or ridicule, but we're here to say "Bite it, buddy! These big beautiful bodies are entitled to enjoy life too!"

This is your chance to break free from that fear of judgment from others. This group is for WOMEN that are tired of watching from the sidelines worrying about how they will look out there on the volleyball court, swimming laps at the pool, or even just walking the trails around town. 

We are overcoming those fears, building our confidence, and paying it forward to help others!

Join this group if this sounds like you:

    "I really want to start going to a gym, but I feel self-conscious about my weight."

    "I would love to start walking my neighborhood, but don't want everyone to start asking me if I'm trying to lose weight!"

    "My body aches just getting up off the couch. I feel like an unstretched rubber band that's about to snap."

    "Ugh...why did I EVER think I could start exercising with my size 2 friend? She looks so graceful while I'm over here drenched in sweat and hyperventilating!"

    "Those guys look like they're having so much fun playing volleyball/softball/other sport...I wish I could do that, but I'm too fat. They would just laugh or get mad at me for not being as fast"

I know you're out there...and I know you want to have a fun ACTIVE life, full of friends that relate to you - so why not meet up?

Say it with me: "I am a chubby chick that is tired of sitting on the sidelines. I am going to get out and get active with my other chubby friends and enjoy life!"
