Before and After: June 1 2015 to July 1 2015

I don’t know if this current photo shows a significant difference from last month. I still haven’t weighed myself since I realized I had a 40 inch waistline. The end of my circuit training class......

One Year, One Week and Four Days Later...

So, it turns out that (religiously) blogging about life in braces is n.o.t possible.  I mean really, how much is there to discuss, it’s the same thing day after day after day.  But I gave a shot initially and then things started to slow d...

6 Month Milestone

I took a break from blogging about my braces for various reasons.  The whole rubberband thing really threw me for a loop and I was miserable...yes, the whole freakin' time.  Luckily, since I was diligent about wearing the little rubber hell...

♫ ♪ It Feels Like the First Time ♪ ♫

Well, I'm 14 weeks in now and at this very moment I'm hating how these metal demons are impacting my life.  Don't get me wrong, I'm totally digging the progress, everyday I see movement that wasn't there the day before and my teeth are getting s...

12 Weeks and Seems Like An Eternity

So here I am at the 12 week mark, actually approaching 3 months!  Doesn't sound so bad, does it?  Well, I'm thoroughly sick of them today.  I'm craving foods I cannot eat.  I actually miss eating normal food like a normal person.&...

7 Weeks and Loving What I'm Seeing!!!

I'm slowly recovering from my first adjustment, although it was pretty painful, it pales in comparison to what I felt when I first got these metal demons placed on my teeth.  And now, a little over 7 weeks in, I'm thrilled with the progress that...

Well, it's been a busy week for me, I had a million things going on so my blogging took a back seat.  Oops (insert blushing smiley here, lol).  However, I passed the 6 week point and I'm now officially NOT regretting getting braces...at lea...

What a Blogger Mess (and Progress Photos)

Blogger has been doing maintenance on their site for several days now.  Every time I came here to add my 5 week progress photos and update my blog I could "read-only", I couldn't edit a post, add a post, look at stats, approve comments, not...

4 Weeks Down, 71 More To Go!

Wow, four weeks in braces...it went by so fast but also so slow!  Does that make sense?  It probably does to those of you who have at one time been in them or are currently wearing them.  It seems just like yesterday that I got them on...

Three Whole Weeks, Is That All...Really???

Well it's been exactly three weeks since I got my braces but it seems like they've been on longer than that!  The last couple of days have been pretty miserable and not sure why, I guess it's true that the pain and soreness comes in waves and I'...

Two Long Weeks

Today marks exactly two weeks since I got my braces...two long weeks...of pain, food deprivation, maddening oral care, etc.  But when I took my progress photos today and compared them with the ones I took the day I was braced...I squealed!&...

Comfortably Numb

That is the best title ever for this entry!  Why?  Well because it's one of the best songs ever by one of the best bands ever AND it perfectly describes the way my teeth feel right now which is a welcome change from "so much pain I can't ev...
