Eat All the Foods!


The day arrived on Tuesday. The day I have been waiting for years weeks to arrive. I finally got my wires out and now finally have movement in my jaw. I am able to eat soft foods! The first day was still challenging, but I am quickly adapting. Despite the difficulties, nothing is as bad as having to feed yourself through a syringe for 6 weeks. For anyone else that is here because they are getting jaw surgery, I feel for you. Those 6 weeks are going to be the toughest weeks ever. Unfortunately now that the wires are off, I want to eat all the time! Seriously. All the time. Most of the time, all I can think about is food. When am I going to eat next? What can I possibly eat? It is like starting on my healthy lifestyle all over again, which is a bit of a bummer. A part of me just wants to give into my cravings for awhile… but I don’t know if I will be able to stop it. I am worried about gaining too much weight back…


Luckily I am still just eating soft foods so I am still limited by what I can eat, but the possibilities are still a lot more tastier than blending every single thing into a creamy drink that may or may not be absolutely disgusting.
I am also trying to get back into some sort of routine. I need to stop being such a lazy butt and start getting my life into some sort of order again. I am trying to re-organize the apartment before Christmas because I definitely want to decorate, and I am also thinking about throwing some sort of Holiday Party! Tomorrow the husband and I plan to buy a new entertainment center so that way we aren’t limited to just having one in the corner… so we can finally re-arrange the living room. I am going to do some before and after shots! Speaking of pictures… I will finally show you some progress pictures!


Smile Before

At my sister-in-law’s baby shower back in September!


Smile Now

My face is still puffy and swollen, but it is improvement!


Side View Before

Whoo! Driving down to Virginia Beach… that was a good trip. haha You can see my chin was pretty far back and my front teeth sticking out.

Side View Now

Chin is now aligned with the rest of my face.


So yup… that’s my face now! Still taking a lot of adjusting but I am getting there! In another 6 weeks, I should be fairly normal again and my diet should not be limited anymore. Yay!

Hope life is treating everyone well here in the blogging world! Fingers crossed that I can get my act together and hang around here more often!

  1. YAY! So glad to hear you are able to have some more variety in your foods, what a relief i bet! I can imagine it’s hard to not eat everything in sight, but just remember all the hard work and effort you put in PRE surgery to get your eating habits in a good place! And also remember that occasional indulgences are okay, just don’t over do it. And i might as well be talking to myself right now on that one, too! Struggling with sweet cravings a lot lately!

    • I know, I know… I keep having to tell myself that. Can’t un-do everything now! lol I will get better with time… after those nightmare-ish 6 weeks are behind me!

  2. Fantastic! I’m glad to hear things are getting better for you… I can understand you wanting to eat everything LOL I’d be the same!! I think, for me, it would be like I’ve never eaten before and I’d want to have at least one of everything LOL

  3. Yay! Must be a good feeling 🙂 I think I would be obsessed with food as well, maybe just try a little taste of everything once and get it out of your system hehe
