This week has been a little rough for me. I got my braces on tues and my mouth has hurt ever since. It is getting better. My gums don't hurt anymore and I am starting to eat again. I have been eating nothing but soft foods and soup. It is getting better but not 100% yet. I just fear for when I have to have my baby teeth pulled and I will go through this pain all over again :( Not looking forward to it. But on a plus not I did loose 2 pds last week. It would have been more if I would have went on walks but I just didn't feel like it. So heres to eatiin healthy again this week and walking everyday to lose even more weight :)

    I remember getting my braces, it wasn't fun in the beginning, but you will get used to it. Congrats on your loss this week though!

    I remember the beginning of braces and feel your pain. My savior in the beginning was the wax that they give you to put on metal brackets. It keeps the brackets from tearing up the inside of your mouth. If they didn't give you any, I suggest asking about it. Good luck - I think you'll be happy with them in the end!

    I had retainers and braces for about 10 years when I was younger, there wasn't enough room for all of my teeth to grow in so they had to move them around quite a bit. It does hurt when you first get them and get the adjusted, but you'll start getting used to them. Soft foods for awhile, and advil! :) Hope you're feeling better soon!

    I remember braces hurting quite a bit when I first got them, and when they were adjusted for a bit each time...but I think you'll find yourself getting used to them. I hope so, anyway! I found cold foods help ease the pain the first day or so.

Congratualtions on eating well, and losing weight! Have fun with your walking!
