If I could go back to Jr High the one thing I'd tell myself -ok not the one thing but the first thing I'd tell myself-
"Wear your retainer!"
"Those braces were a lot of money for your parents and if you dont wear the retainer your beautiful smile will move and you will be a 24 year old with braces again to get the smile back that you now have."
I decided this year, 2011 was going to be a year that I did a lot of the things I feel I need in order to improve myself most. This is why I got braces again. I feel like a 13 year old all over again and not in a good way. I really wish I would have gotten this taken care of sooner, but I decided it's now or never and I don't want to look back saying I wished I had gotten my teeth fixed. Don't get me wrong my teeth weren't all that bad I just know that they weren't as beautiful as they were right after I got my braces off in Jr High. This is just a step towards making 2011 a year of change and really improving myself. The ortho, Dr Baily told me it'd take less then a year. I quickly responded " ok so a couple of months ? " "perfect!" He laughed at me. I forgot how much braces hurt the first time around. I have been eating a lot of Kevas and bread and potatoes and soft tacos and macaroni which are all a part of my favorite food so it hasn't been all that bad. Tues will be the one week mark then I'm only a month and 3 weeks till getting them off! (or at least in my timing )
