Congrats on the weight loss, that's a great accomplishment!!
I thought I would have the same weight loss because at first It was hard to eat but I have actually gained a couple pounds because I find it hard to eat the foods I did before braces, including my favorite protein bars and granola bars. I also find it gross to eat salads with braces lol. Though I had lost a lot of weight before starting my braces. I think my braces has made me a little depressed, I love the results but felt very self conscious the first year.
Maybe if I could give up the diet coke and vodka........... no that's just silly!!
I think retainers will be more of a deterrent from snacking because I will not want to take them out to rinse them in public or even at home constantly.
Keep up the good work!!
