I realised that I eat for comfort. Ever since the braces is on, I am unable to do so. I have no where to release stress.
In fact, eating has become a chore. Food get stuck in between the braces and it will take me quite sometime to clean them up. I have become somewhat lazy to eat.
Just the other day, I was trying to chew on some bean sprouts. Unfamiliar with the new bite, two of my teeth collided. It hurts a lot!!!One of them had become shaky after that. I was instructed by my dentist to avoid “hard food” especially to avoid using my front teeth because they were rather fragile and unstable.
Great. What have I got myself into? I still have two and half years to go. What is there to look forward to in life?
I eat less nowadays and mostly liquid food. Looking myself in the mirror, I think I looked worse. No one, not even Tyra Banks can work the braces. It just make people looked ugly.
The price to pay for a beautiful smile better be worth the trouble. I really hope I would be able to lose some weight and be healthier after this…
In the meantime, I need some encouragement from Mika – convincing myself that “Big Girl, You are beautiful.”
