i definitely second this! :)
Oh my gosh, you are all so beautiful!!! Who is Amy and who is Angela? Sorry for not knowing!! But seriously, you guys are one hell of a hot group!! Did Craig take the pictures? The group ones anyway? He did a good job or whoever did them.
I can't believe that you just had major surgery, you smile is amazing and you look so peaceful and beautiful!!!
I'm Angela. I'm the one in the navy top. Craig took them and was very patient with us.
I know you hate me, but I just wanted to say who I was... Amy is dove on LJ and Lanette's best friend. We're all some hot mama's.
You got what I meant, Lanette didn't, but thanks for knowing what I meant...haha.
I don't hate you silly!! I have heard how wonderful you have been to Lanette and I think that you are an amazing person for doing that. I do not hate you at all, I just think at a moment I was feeling down you were a bit harsh and I didn't feel all that connected to you. But "hate" is not really on my vocabulary on LJ.
I think both of you are less sweet on LJ than you are in person, but that's just me.
You both are a bunch of softies in person. :)
Thanks, Amy is dove
and my best friend since the early 1990's. Angela is carryaway
and we've been friends since this winter when I got to know her since she moved here from the East Coast. She has been helping me a ton to recover from my surgery.
Thanks! Craig took these photos and I did the staging in Angela's makeup! I love doing stuff like this. Amy is actually better at makeup than I am (she used to work for Estee Lauder), so I didn't do hers, but maybe my type A personality will come out some day and I'll do it all!
I was having a good day with plenty of pain pills. Today I'm grouchy and running low, so I look more how you'd expect a major surgery girl to look. I still run out of energy about 7-8pm. :)
Silly girl, I knew who they were in your life, but what I was asking what who was Amy and who was Angela in the pictures! But Angela got that and explained.
I never get over how amazingly beautiful Amy is!!
It also doesn't hurt that I know the beauty that's inside of her, too :)
I know!! We are all at least 1 year post RNY and look at how healthy, radient and happy.
For all of those WLS haters out there who say that gastric bypass is the easy way out and we all look terrible, blah blah blah, I give them these photos.
The 10 years I'd be missing Amy if she didn't hvae the surgery (her lifespan was AT LEAST 10 years sorter on average) I intend to use to the fullest doing old lady antics with her.
I look huge next to you! (Saying that in a non-negative way though!) I love your New York top. Where did you get it?! I may have a new york top that would fit you perfectly now that you've gotten the LBL. I'll look through my boxes to see if I can find it. You look so amazing Lanette. I'm so proud of you and how strong you have been recovering from this surgery. I know it was really painful and hard, but you did it and you did it so amazingly.
Ooooh. I have a prize for you! I found something you've been looking for AND some stuff that'll make you smile! :)
Good luck at work today and the doctor's. Please let me know if you need anything today. I will be up pretty much all day and don't go to work until 9:30pm. *hugs* And, I mean it - if you want company and/or help - don't be afraid to tell me. I won't tell anyone. :-p
oh, and let me know how you are regardless. I worry 'bout you!
Please remember that I'm underweight and working on gaining 10-15lbs. I lost a bit too much due to pain. I don't like being quite this small. I'd like to at least make it back up to a healthy size 8. My BMI might look OK in photos, but you can also see my ribs through the front of my chest and I have more wrinkles because of it by my mouth and eyes. I'm so glad that I'm nearing the end of seeing Dr. Jackass! He is SO not getting to do the boob job.
I'll call if I need help. My appointment isn't until 11am. Also, have you tried the cat eyes yet with your new tools? Hooray for prizes. I return to work today (I hope).
Thanks! Craig took these for us.
What gorgeous, radiant ladies!
These girls are my favorite. :)
