Default My "One Year" Mark!

I don''t know exact date I started but I know it was early June last year so I decided June 5th was my "One Year" mark. Not quite a 6-pack yet but working on it Thanks to my parents for letting me use their treadmill and my family & friends for the encouragement along the way. Thank you!!!

Main motivation for this was the previous year I was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea and started using a CPAP machine to sleep.

The same thing happening to me was my wake up call. It really hit home when I saw myself in that mask and realized I have gotten fat enough to need a CPAP from obstructive sleep apnea. I felt like a big fat elephant. Keep going you are doing great!

I just starting using fitday last month and it is very helpful. Makes it fun to fine tune the diet to reach my next goal to be under 10% BF and show the 6-pack. Wish I would have found it sooner.

Default Sleep Apnea

Congrats on sticking with it for a whole year, AND for the results! I have sleep apnea too. Have you done followup sleep studies as you've lost the weight and lower the amount of air pressure at any particular milestone changes? Are you still using CPAP now?

Thank you! I have not done a follow-up yet because can't afford it even with insurance at the moment. I had been off of it for almost a month but was having trouble just getting to sleep but was sleeping ok once I got to sleep. I have been using it the past couple of nights which helps me get to sleep quicker. I think it will be similar to weening a child off using a bottle, its a comfort level.

How long have you been dealing with your sleep apnea?

That is sooo awesome!!! Very happy for you. I'm cracking up because you don't look like you anymore, you sort of look like your skinny kid brother... Good luck on weaning off the CPAP machine, my BIL is trying to get off his too, but he needs to lose quite a bit more still.
