Thank you and to others for the congrats. I actually did everything on my own from starting to walk everyday, learning how/what to eat and weightlifting. It really has become not only a lifestyle change for me but in a sense a hobby, learning how to better my health.

Thanks for the response. That’s what I'm doing now. I'm 5'10 and weighed 232 on June 5th. I started running and work-out five days a week doing split work-outs. Not on a diet...life style change. I've already lost 6 pounds. I consume about 1800 calories a day....thanks for the feedback...I’ll keep you posted on my loss...and keep up the good work!!!

Apparently they twitched every 14 seconds until then - who knew? I suspect I needed the machine a good while before that since I'd been getting complaints about my snoring and I'd been literally falling asleep at work.

In 2007 I was all excited about having lost 40 pounds and wanted another sleep study. I had different insurance, though, and instead of sleeping at the clinic with all sorts of electronics glued to my head, chest, and legs, they just sent me home with a testing CPAP for a few nights that had variable pressure and monitored my breathing somehow. I was VERY disappointed that they turned my machine UP to 10, and I haven't been especially comfortable with it ever since.

After that I gained back 10 of those 40 pounds but managed to stop there and have gotten rid of it again. Since then I've used CPAP sporadically - sometimes I sleep better with it, and sometimes I sleep better without it. I suppose I should insist on a real in-clinic sleep study but I don't feel confident I would get it. Maybe after I lose some more weight I'll ask again.

Squeaky wheel gets the grease, I'd at least try for the study. My husband has sleep apnea, he put on 15-20 lbs when he first got it. The theory is he wasn't awake all night burning calories tossing and turning. If you're snoring again, it isn't set right.

I think mine was set for 9 but I havent changed the settings when I do use it. Funny thing is I have been sleeping on my couch without it for a week with good results. For me it seems the more inclined postion I sleep in the better. Keep working at it and good luck
