This is it. Here I go, or rather, it goes. I'm on a mission. A mission to feel better about myself and to feel better in my clothes...not to mention my own skin.
My name is Meridith (Mer to my friends) and I'm from N E Texas. I have been married for 6 years to the love of my life. We have two wonderful children, a 5 year old boy and a 2 year old little girl. I love Jesus and want to live my life in a way that is pleasing to Him. Don't get me wrong, I come up short in a lot of ways every day, but I love following Jesus. I love music and singing. I've been singing since I can remember. I love to cook! One of my other favorite things to do is ride horses. I think horses can see to your very soul and are just one of the most amazing creatures made by God. I also work 2 days a week printing T-shirts for my parent's company We do T-shirts for anyone, but our passion is to serve youth ministries. Check out the site and if you need T's (embroidery, signs, banners, stickers, etc.) for your next event, give us a shot. **Update*** I just added my own business to the mix MarkIt Embroidery. I can embroider on just about anything. My website is We ship nationwide.

I was diagnosed with PCOS this year (Polycystic ovarian syndrom). I 'd love to talk to any other PCOSers out there that are on this weightloss journey and have had success.

    Congrats on the weight loss. I need to hear amazing stories so that I can try harder to lose the weight i want off. I also believe that horses are amazing animals and every little girl should be able to ride/own one. I did not get that dream when i was little. I did the first half, about riding horses and fell in love with them, but i was not able to get one of my own. Now i plan to save up money and buy one for western pleasure in the next 2 years. Wish me luck!
    Thanx for everything you do!
