So here is how I looked this morning:
Here is how I looked this afternoon
How do you like my shiny new smile?
To be honest with you, I'm still not sure how I feel about it. Every time I look in the mirror all I see is silver. I need to get used to it because this will be my smile for the next two years. Hopefully when all this is done the severe headaches I've been getting will be minimal or better yet gone for good. If not at least my teeth will be straight, and according to my orthodontist I won't have any wrinkles around my mouth.
In honor of the fact that I currently can not eat any solid food I thought I'd share my favorite smoothie recipe. It's called Heavenly Hawaiian and I found it in a recipe book titled Ultimate Smoothie by Donna Pliner Rodnitzky
3/4 cup pineapple juice
1/2 tablespoon honey
1 cup sliced banana
1 cup diced pineapple
3/4 cup raspberries
1 cup vanilla low fat yogurt
Place everything in a blender and mix on low until blended. Continue mixing, gradually increasing speed until your smoothie is smooth. Pour and enjoy!
Until next time,
