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!

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!
