Last week I got my braces off (needed teeth straightened after a high speed face plant a while ago). I've got a retainer now. You can't eat with a retainer, you have to take it out first.
Having this retainer that I have to take out every time I eat has made me acutely aware of how often I'm stuffing food in my face. It seems like every 15 minutes! Realistically, it's every 2-3 hours. I bring snacks to work so I won't be tempted to eat the free junk food. Even then I have to schedule times to eat or I'd eat everything I bring by noon. Speaking of which, it's lunch time. Bye.
