She then informed me that she will be home on the 10th of December - about 3 weeks before I leave. I think it'll be enough time for her to alter the dress, at least I'm hoping that it is. I plan on taking pictures this week of me in the dress so I'll post them as soon as I can. I'm getting excited now!!!!!
          Awesome Job Girl!!!!

          Keep up the good work, send some good karma my way, I'm trying to drop some pounds too!

          Can't wait for the updates!!

            Hi ladies!

            I thought that I would post some pictures that my mom took this past friday. As some of you know, I've now lost 16.6 pounds, which is awesome, but now the dress doesn't really fit.

            Here's what the dress looks like on me now (sorry, bad hair day! lol)
            Click the image to open in full size.

            what I would like the dress to look like by raising up the empire waist and pulling the dress closer to me
            Click the image to open in full size.

            the amount of material that I am holding, to pull the dress back to fit me better

            and the lace-up, which now doesn't even look nice because my shape has changed so much
            Click the image to open in full size.

            here's a pic of my hair flower that my aunt made to match the one on the dress. I believe it's too big, so she'll make it smaller
            Click the image to open in full size.

            My aunt does know about my weight-loss but I have yet to send her some pics. I'm going to be super busy over the next few weeks as we're moving, so once we settle in, I'll be sending her some pics.

            Enjoy ladies and thank you so much for all your kind words and support throught this process. Although it's not quite done yet, we're getting there!! WOO HOO!!!

                    Lisa, congratulations on your weight loss. I know what you mean about the dress not fitting now. I've lost 20 pounds and don't even want to have mine altered until November because I'm hoping to lose 5 - 10 more. The dress is beautiful and you will be too!!
