There's a pagan group in my area I was thinking of attending some of there events. I must say that I'm a little nervous to meet some other pagans mostly becuse of my weight. I was wondering some of you that may have covens or other events that you attend was there any negativity as far as your weight goes? Being a stay at home mom 24/7 and living in a town that is at least 75% Mormon I really need to get out at meet some other people with like ideas.

Hi there,
I'm not pagan, though I have some acquaintances who are -- just wondering why pagans would have any issues with anyone's weight -- especially more than any other group. The pagans I have known have not all been super slim or fit. I think you should go for it!

Are you in UT? What meetup group were you looking at?

I'm in the Salt Lake area. Haven't found much up here at all, so I'm still solo. Good luck! Love the witchy smileys!!

I don't think your weight would be an issue with the pagan community as a whole. Good luck to you when you go!! I'm in southern NC in the bible belt, so I'm still solitary as well. Keep us updated.

I belong to a UU pagan group, and we sometimes collab with a local Wiccan one.

In general -- the pagans come in all shapes, sizes, and styles like any other group would. So no, I have not experienced any sort of negativity.

Have you checked witchvox? I think the salt lake pagan pride is September 11 this year. I would love to go to it if I go up north.

I love Witchvox!

There's a pagan group here in my suburb, but I haven't visited them yet. I'm kinda nervous at meeting new people, usually, but hope to start meeting with them soon. It would be nice to celebrate Samhain with someone!
