This meetup is for any SWFL Mom, Mommies-to-be or future Mommies that would love to get back in motion. This not only includes a weight loss goals or weight management goals, but also social (meeting other moms), mental, physical and financial wellness. Our meet ups will be child friendly allowing them time to play while we have time to work on ourselves. All Mommas are welcome whether you are looking for a walking buddy, just getting out into the physical fitness arena, or need the support to move forward or help maintaining.
I recently moved to Ft. Myers from Texas with my husband and three year old little girl. Relocating to another part of the country with a newborn can be stressful and finding new friends was not at the top of my priority list. I joined the Meetup Community and was embraced by some wonderful women who I am proud to call my best friends.
I have discovered that it is difficult as a woman to find balance with such a busy life. We are all busy with our day to day lives of being a mother, a wife/girlfriend and many other things, that we tend to forget to take care of ourselves. I do know is that things can be a lot easier when you have support and others striving for the same goal. I have met many mommas who all say that they want to "lose the baby fat" but are unmotivated or too busy. Together we can get motivated.
As I get older and my daughter grows, my goal is to get the two of us in motion together; which includes not just a weight goal but also spiritual, mental, physical and financial health to all be in balanced. This meetup is designed to encourage all of us to do that together.
As a group, we have tried to keep the membership free, in order to continue to reach out to all Moms. Unfortunately, there are cost associated with using this website, and the few cannot support all. We will be starting dues in March, but are keeping it real by asking $5.00/year. It will be due after your first event, or within 30 days of joining. In any case, we do need you to be an active member. If you cannot attend a meetup within 4 weeks of joining, you will be removed. Feel free to rejoin when you can commit.
Also, if you are looking to join the group to make business or marketing contacts, please pass on by. We are here to support each other, not make a sale.
Our event times are typically during the week, and focus mainly on early morning/afternoons. If you see the schedules/locations don't work for you, suggest a meet up time/place! I will review and approve accordingly.
Have a great day, and stay well.
Looking forward to meeting you all soon!
