First off warmest welcome to Spark People. I too suffer from sleep ap. I've had the machine now for a year, however it's collecting dusk unfortunately. I just couldn't get used to it even using the "pillows mask". The doctor explained to me that losing weight would help and I was determined to change my life. My kids were asking why I had to use that machine, I also didn't feel confident w/ hubby lying next to me w/ this contraption on my face. But he is my support and we must have support.

It's going to be a hard journey but if you stay committed even when you fall off get right back on. Log log log, log everything as if you were writing a book about yourself. Food prep is a big key. Search this site for recipes and plan meals for the week...Tupperware or brown bagging works. It's about 80-90% what you intake and the rest is activity. Try something new whether it be food or activity. In order for your body to change you have to change your mind. I can go on & on about what helped me loose 56lbs, you have to play around w/ what works for your body. Listen if you need an accountability partner let me know. I have a support page on Facebook (link below) if you ever need some daily inspiration, recipes or if you'd like to add some input on what helps you. Stay committed in this journey!!!

Nice to meet you MISS_AJA! Glad you could join us

I too have sleep apnea and use a cpap machine...weight loss will sometimes relieve apnea...but not always...I know plenty of "skinny" people with sleep apnea so I do wish you good luck in that arena.

As for the weight loss arena...that doesn't require luck...just determination and it sounds like you have it!!!!

Hey everyone!

I want to start off a new lifestyle, and start out fresh and new! Last year I was on Weight Watchers, and lost around 30lbs. Months later due to stress I lost motivation, and ended up gaining all the pounds back, and then some. emoticon I also want to solve my little sleep apnea, and insomnia problem. So! I'm back on the band-wagon again, to finally kill this dragon once and for all! I'm looking forward to meeting you all by the way!
