Kapilani: The oranges are on their way out!

I guess what I'm having is technically a "mommy makeover" that's LONG OVERDUE because I'm 46 now with two teen-aged sons.

Hi Ana. Yes, I'm teaching summer school, and I scheduled it for the Monday immediately following the last day of instruction. I thought the tummy was doing fine, but my doc said that he's going to "fix the scar" at the same time as... READ COMMENT

You look great Surgery Twin! You should be the poster child for your doctor's best work! READ COMMENT

Hope you continue to feel better and better each day! Now is the time to spoil yourself. READ COMMENT

Hi Ana, I know...What the heck happened with me? They are smaller, but not by enough. I still have a substantial amount of breast and I can't jog without them flopping all around even with a firm bra on. All I can think of is that... READ COMMENT

Hi JA! Sorry it's been so long, but I just noticed your posts now. I can't become a comedian! I have anxiety disorder, and crowds of people who are over the age of 14 make me nervous!! Ha Ha! That's why teaching middle school is... READ COMMENT
