Odds and ends

Sorry--there's no official family update today. It's been a slow week at the Douglass house.

Let's see...

I have lost 20 pounds in 10 days. That makes a total of 50 pounds since September.

I got to eat my first pureed meat today (and a mashed egg for breakfast!). As gross as pureed meat sounds, it was pretty good. I'd made a very tender pork roast for lunch. And most importantly, I still feel full from it. Very full.

Some very good friends of ours, Brian and LaNae R., who we hadn't seen since we left Germany 4 years ago, stopped by for lunch on their way to Florida. It was so good to see them again. Their oldest, Garrett, and Ben were best friends. Today they picked up like they were 5 again.
We've both had 2 more kids since we last saw each other, so it was fun meeting the new additions.

Grant R., Amelia, Ben, Garrett R.
Liam refused to be in the picture, and Emi R. is
still a baby and was fussy.

And...I think that's it. Lame post, I know. I'll try to make up for it tomorrow.

P.S. Gay Chad says hi.

P.P.S. I don't see too much of a difference, but here's a 10 days after shot.

Oh yeah, I got a sweet new haircut.

And my boobs are still non-existent.


  1. Are you freaking kidding me?!?! You don't see the difference?!?! MAJOR DIFFERENCE Brandi! Man, this is gonna be fun to watch...

  2. You are the incredible shrinking woman! Look at that! I'm amazed.

  3. Um, if you really can't see the difference, then you need to pull each photo up on your screen and actually get a ruler to measure yourself horizontally. There is DEFINITELY a big difference.

    I know I told you at church, but I love your new 'do.

    And my boobs are also non-existent, even though I'm still nursing. They'll be even worse when I stop in a few months. I've got some good padded push-up bras from VS, so nobody can really tell except me and poor, poor DH... LOL!

  4. Brandi,
    You look wonderful. And there is a huge difference. I love your new hair cut too... Super cute!!!! How fun to hang out with old friends.

  5. Brandi, you look awesome. You looked so great at church today and you just seemed to even have more energy. And, I love your new haircut. You are going to be one hotty hotty with a naughty body! Watch out, you ARE the incredible shrinking woman!

  6. I can tell the difference! You look great. I love the progress pictures!

    I just reconnected with a bunch of friends from Massachusetts, and it's a blast. It's so nice that Ben gets to reconnect with old friends, too.

    As for breasts, mine hardly make an actual size. I have my eye on a new fancy schmancy bra, but I don't think they're worth $50. Still, I got quite a deal on the dress and as confident as I am with their size, but not confident enough to go without a bra altogether so it's a dilemma.

    Can't wait to see further progress pictures!!!

  7. Punkin, you look different. Your lady hump is going down!

    Awesome hair cut.

  8. I love your blog. You are doing a great job... I can really see the weight loss.


Be nice or I'll punch you in the taco.
