Re: Day2

I'm a grazer,too. I'm on tray 20/44 and have learned to take short cuts so I don't go crazy. Most workdays I only get a 15 min break, so I just remove my trays, eat, and when I get home, brush, floss, and put them back on. I have had them off anywhere from 2 to 4 hours, but it's worked out fine. If ...

My storage solution.

Blue dots/ Wear Indicators- only one side fading

If the blue dots are supposed to reveal compliance, why is only one side fading? Is the PH of saliva that different from one side of the mouth to the other? Anyone know?

Newb with snacking concerns

I'm a grazer. I have food stashed in every purse, lunch cooler, glove compartment,backpack, etc. I wish I were exaggerating. My favorite snack is Rice Works Sweet Chili Chips. I also have an unhealthy addiction to Brach's Starbrite Peppermints and buy them in bulk. I get shakey if I haven't eaten wi...
