Cathy, you are so pretty. And I commend you for losing the weight. I know several people who have done this with miracle stories like yours. I lost just 30 lbs a couple years ago with diet and a new exercise routine, and I know what you mean about the confidence booster. Way to go for you. And thanks for checking back in. I'm still plugging along with all the hardware!!!

I'm inspired that you report things have settled nicely for you. I hope I have the same type of results. Great to hear from you. :D

Thank you, Kip!

But a very pretty 45 year old...... :)

Your smile looks great. Overall you have a very friendly appearance. You appear to have done very well in taking care of yourself.

I wore braces (this time) for 1294 days or 3 years, 6 months and 17 days.
But who's counting?

You really look AMAZING!! Yes braces does wonders for self-esteem!! I got in the elevator at work and another really classy lady got in. I didn't want to smile and then I remembered-- My smile is probably better than hers!! It felt great!!

Hi Catgyrl,

You look great! Good to hear from you and Klobird again. You were two of the regulars when I was starting and I enjoyed following your posts.

It is great that getting braces also helped inspire you towards weight loss too. I could do with losing 15-20 pounds. I am scheduled to be debraced on 22 July. It would be great to think that I could get rid of my brace and my flab before my birthday in August.

Sectional brace with Damon clear brackets fitted to front 6 upper teeth 3 January 2012
Brackets added to premolars 2 April 2012
Estimated treatment time originally 6-9 months
. Brace removed on 22 July 2013 after 18 months and 19 days
Now enjoying bonded upper retainer plus part time essix/hawley( I have both)
