Hello everyone, my name is Meagan. I'm a 21 year old animal loving, coffee drinking, book reading, flower planting, travel addicted shutter bug. I live in Michigan, and I'm ecstatically married to the best person I could ever ask for.

In the past few years, I've developed a serious case of the travel bug. In 2007, my mom took me on a cruise to the Southern Caribbean (top and middle pictures), and in the same year, I won a honeymoon to Jamaica at a bridal show! My husband and I spent 4 days on the beaches of Montego Bay (bottom picture) in August 2008 and we loved every minute of it!

I miss the Caribbean so much, I need to go back or I'll loose my mind!

I am currently a stay at home wife. I occupy my days by taking care of our pets. We share our home with a three year old basset hound named Cooper, a one year old yellow lab named Marley (just like the one from the movie), a two year old grey tabby cat named Mittens, and a one year old white and grey cat named Maddrox. When I'm not playing zookeeper, I just like to hang out with my family and friends, watch movies, go out to dinner, go shopping, or whatever sounds like fun at the moment.

Even though I have tons of mental energy, I can be very physically lazy. My daily exercise includes walking and playing with my dogs... and that's about it. On top of that, I love food. Not junk food, but real, home made food. I love to cook all kinds of food from Mexican to Asian, my favorite being a toss up between Italian and American BBQ. I know that home made food is way better for you because you can control what goes in it, but my cooking hero is Paula Dean... Butter, butter, butter, and fry it... in butter. Ok, maybe not that bad, but I don't skimp on the fat and spices, that's for sure. It is safe to say that ever since I got married, became a house wife, and dove head first into an obsession with cooking, I have put on a few pounds. Not that I was super fit before I got married, but I haven't lost any weight since. I feel that I am probably 80 or so pounds over weight, and that is the most over weight that I have ever been in my life.

When my husband and I first started dating 4 years ago, I weighed somewhere around 170 pounds and I felt really good at that weight. I wasn't super skinny, I had curves that looked good instead of flabby, and I fit into a size 14 without the "muffin top" effect. I would kill to be that weight again, but since murder doesn't cause weight loss, I'll have to lose about 80 pounds instead. I know that there is a lot of hype about being super skinny and having abs that you could iron on, but that just isn't for me. I have a wide pelvis, bulky bones, and without being crude, the girls up top are a little enormous. I just figured that now is the best time to get in shape, before the kids come along. I'm told that if I'm in good shape and I stick to a healthy lifestyle now, it will make the whole process easier later and I will have a better chance of not gaining a ton afterwards.

I have a lot of work cut out for me, but I feel that I have made the right choice by starting on Slimquick. My best friend in the whole world recommended it to me because she lost 40 pounds while taking it. Not to mention, she said that it makes her feel great, gives her energy, and it made her nails and hair look fabulous! How can you argue with that? Plus, I'm planning on taking my husband to the Bahamas this fall and I plan on looking like a beach goddess instead of a beached whale!

Well, there is my story. Please wish me luck, and the best of luck to you as well!

    emoticon to Tattooed Women. We have a fun group with challenges and mini challenges to amp up the efforts and keep us mindful. We also have great social support and gorgeous body art. I love your tats. Where did you get the flower done? I got my tats in Neb. but want to find some one who does a good job closer. I live outside Chicago. Hope to see you in the chats and challenges.

    After you posted in the Basset forum, I just had to come see Cooper and the rest of the family. Coope is quite the little man isn't he.

    They are all beautiful fur babies!
