Our group is for those in the Tacoma area who would like social support for their own weight loss and exercise goals. We meet for twice a month in a social setting for conversation and encouragement. Studies suggest that you are 20% more likely to stay on a diet and 40% more likely to maintain your weight loss with social support from friends. We will also meet at least once a month for light to moderate activity such as walking or hiking, and we also have a healthy potluck every other month.  

Meetup is not free for organizers!  I have to pay a monthly fee to organize this group.  I ask members to pay $15 per year to help recoup the cost of having this meetup club.  Any dues money leftover after paying for our site will be used for meetups (like potluck sundries).  You are welcome to join the club and attend a couple meetings before deciding to commit and pay the $15.  

We do not advocate any specific diet plan or any weight loss products. There will never be any solicitation for merchandise or medications/supplements in our group. If your diet includes the use of any medications or supplements you are welcome to be in the group but do not market or sell any products within our group setting or site.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
