Ugh, these things are never coming off, are they?  I had my first trip back to the orthodontist since my surgery.  Dr. Weber said I looked pretty good, then slapped some thicker rubber bands on my teeth and sent me on my way.  I have one on the left that is to stay on all the time, and one on  the right to wear at night.  I didn’t even ask if he could estimate my “release date”.  I am so ready for this to be over.    It’ll be 18 months this week.  I don’t want to be 30 With Braces, but the chances of getting them off within the next two months before my birthday aren’t looking so promising.  Grrr…


My top lip is mostly back, but my bottom is still numb.  For the most part, I’m eating pretty good, but a lot of food is upsetting my stomach – I much eat TOO well on Fridays because the last two Saturdays I’ve felt like ripping my stomach out.  I missed the whole holiday on Saturday – my husband grilled 16 hamburgers and 12 brats for our family, and I didn’t get even one, I was so sick.  But on the plus side, I’m still losing weight…it’s just not much fun!

I’m changing the name of this blog to “My Adventures in WHINING About Adult Braces.”  Sorry.
