Thank you EVERYONE for your kind words.

I noticed that I haven't really been eating anything different from being braced and after. I'm just less careful when I'm eating crunchy things and not having to pick everything from my teeth. I am super happy and as the days go by, more people are noticing that I am *NAKED*! I find it weird when I'm brushing and there isn't any resistance from tooth to gum... It just the small things you have to readjust to.
