Girls, Girls, Girls

I took the day off and got away for a girl's weekend Friday! Started in San Antonio with lunch and a mojito and a visit to the Japanese Tea Garden with little sis, then met up with Lori (birthday girl!) and headed to Corpus for a long weekend at the beach house that included dancing, a morning at the spa, lounging on the beach, and a limo to take us to dinner and downtown CC.

WOW, 3 Months!

Here's the three month post-surgery update; braces are gone, bottom retainer is cemented in place, and I have a clear retainer to wear on top, at night.

The only pain I really have is kind of like dull sinus pain, but it's not bad. Can't comfortably eat hard or chewy foods like nuts, steak or candy.

Still can't open my mouth very wide--i tried to take a bite of egg roll saturday at dinner and couldn't get it in. Had to tear it into smaller pieces.

I have a small patch of numbness left on my face--the left side of my bottom lip and left side of my chin. Also most of my upper amd lower gums are numb.

Total weight loss is 22lbs. I'm trying very hard to keep it off (and lose a few more lbs) by eating light and going to the gym, including Mandy's saturday morning mini boot camps!

Will have a good before and after side-by-side pic up soon!
