can one loose weight by sleeping?

Saturday, March 02, 2013

well last night makes 4 nights in a row I've slept all night long! My littlest has taken to barely any nap through the day but he's making up for it by sleeping all night! I wake up feeling better in the morning, finally got rid of my backache and I somehow think sleeping all night is helping me loose weight if that's possible. I feel thinner haven't actually weighed myself to prove my theory. Any suggestions on types of scales to buy? I used to have an old one but it got burried when we put our newer house in. Well its Saturday and I don't have to work! YEAH! I can stay home for the first weekend in almost 2 months! I'm not sure what to do with my day yet. I'm still trying to wake up from sleeping until 615. I know not that late, but when you're used to waking up between 4 an 6am for a long time 615 seems really late...have a good day!

    You absolutely can lose weight by sleeping - I have noticed that I lose much more quickly when I am well rested. Of course, I have a 3 year old and a toddler, so those times are few and far between!!

    They have done studies that show people who got 8 hours of sleep lost weight just by sleeping. I'm once you get to a certain point diet & exercise play more of a roll. Also, if you don't get enough sleep there's a hormone that triggers your brain saying you're hungry. I have this happen alot, especially when my daughter wakes up multiple times at night. I just want to eat all day long even if I don't think I need to. I try to aim for at least 6.5-7 hours sleep, but even now that is tough. Maybe by this summer it'll be better. Pepper will be walking by then so maybe she'll sleep better at night. Hang in there it will get better, at some point. emoticon
