Sleep is a very important componate of well being and can cause weight and health problems. I always put 9 hours in the tracker although I spend many more hours in bed. I worry I spend too much time there. I hate to get up and dawdle getting up. The quality of my sleep maybe isn't as great as it could be. I have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and used a c-pap for years. After losing significant weight I had it rechecked and it had improved from 74 episodes per hour to 14-18 episodes. I had problems with the new mask and it made sores in my nose and outside my nose. So I quit using it. I still wake up every 2-4 hours and get up and go to the bathroom. Pain is the most often cause of waking up but sometimes it's my cat, Morgan. I'm not sure if I move and she decides I should pet her or she just decides it's time for petting. A couple times she nipped my feet but I may have kicked her first. I'd like to feel rested when I wake up and I don't. I'm as tired or more than when I went to sleep.
