I weighed in at my sleep study on May 7th at 296 lbs (with clothes on). We figured 3 lbs for clothing, so I was 293 lbs at that point. (HORRIFYING!) Ugh. I've never been so heavy.

I got my CPAP on the 14th, and have been using it faithfully since then (except for Quest, because I didn't have a battery yet for it). And wow. What a difference.

Biggest difference? I stepped on my scale this morning and it said:


I've lost nearly 10 lbs in a month!!!  And it's not that I've been exercising or anything out of the ordinary - I've been SLEEPING.  For the first time in years.

And when I actually sleep at night, I wake up before my alarm clock and I'm not tired.  I don't crave the high-fat, high-sugar foods that I used to - I'm craving fresh foods.  I'm even passing on things like soda.  And chocolate.

Shocking, huh?  Damn, I should have done a sleep study sooner.

I haven't given up on my donation/exercise - I just haven't had a lot of time to record it.  I'm getting back to it tomorrow, though.  I'll post the new totals then.

Guys, I feel so awesome.  I can't wait to keep on this path.
