Re: Weight & Braces

Yesss.. I'm not complaining! 15 pounds down in about 5 months.. So much less snacking, eating is so time consuming now, half the time I just give up.. so my meals are much smaller and fewer between. I do still indulge in pasta and soft foods because they are so much easier to eat!! Maybe I should st...

Re: 29 - Braces Journey (terrified)

I've noticed the same thing about my own smile. Apparently it's to do with how often you use the muscles on each side. For example, if you often eat on only one side of your mouth, it might cause some asymmetry. I added that to the file of "weird things I've noticed about my face in braces&quo...
