Beautiful dress and beautiful detailing. 

It will feel more like your dress and fit better after it’s fitted.

Do you have any non-angled shots of the front or the back? It hard to get an idea of the problems you’re seeing from these angles.

You look absolutly gorgeous! I love your dress! You will feel so much better once it is fitted to your body! I can totally relate with you about not being able to loose weight, when you are a mom, you dont ever seem to have the time! You look absolutly beautiful though!

What specifically are your issues, the only thing that looks off to me is it looks like it doesn’t fit you on top (it looks like you can see a little bra peaking out?). Is that bothersome to you? Will this be adjusted with the fitting? Give us more detail as to what you don’t like and maybe we can help ease your mind some!

I think you look beautiful!  I don’t see what is wrong with the back either… there is a lot of material and a longish/full train, but that is just the style of the dress.

As far as losing weight goes, my Fiance struggled for a few years with weight probs.  Going to the gym didn’t work.  It’s all about what you eat.  (I know this sounds sort of “duh”, but really).

At the suggestion of the doctor, he did the south beach diet and lost close to 60 pounds.  The first week is pretty hard with very strict dietary rules.  You’d have to cook your lunch and dinner every day. 

If you can’t be this regimented, I’d suggest cutting out comlpetely all complex carbs (sugars, white bread, pasta, potatoes).  This actually isn’t too hard (as far as cooking and finding acceptable take-out foods).

I think it’s looks amazing on you!!! I see what you mean about the back bunching, but I’m sure some of that bunching will be dealt with once they have it fitted to you.

As far as losing weight goes, you could try at home video workouts. I know jillian michael’s 30 day shred works really well. and it’s only 25 min a day (but it is pretty hard core). If that’s too much for you, you try another video & maybe include your kids in the working out. I know when my SIL works out, my nephews try and do the same workout with her. DOn’t know if that will work with your kids, but it’s a suggestion.

Ahhh is that a Maggie?  I think it looks awesome!  But if you are wanting to lose weight, I HIGHLY recommend Spark People.  I lost 40 pounds and the site is free.  It’s not just a diet, it’s a lifestyle change and it seriously has been the best thing for me!  You look fabulous in your dress as it is though (and even better when it’s fitted I’m sure)!  Congrats girl!
