This is hard to admit, but here I go.
I found out a few weeks ago that my poor husband has been sleeping several hours out of every night on the floor or on the sofa. You see, three years ago I gained about 40 pounds and developed a snoring issue due to apnea and reflux. It seems it's gotten quite bad and he hides out during the worst parts of the night. I've gone to the dr and done a sleep study a couple years ago because my dh said I was snoring. (Didn't know it was THAT bad!) My dr wanted to treat the apnea, but my insurance said it wasn't bad enough and they won't pay for treatment. Long story on trying to get a mouthpiece - turns out I'm a jaw clincher too! So the mouthpiece didn't work because I was damaging my jaw.
I'm so embarrassed. He didn't tell me he was actually having to leave our room to sleep. I choked and woke up and found him trying to sleep on the floor in the other room. I can't believe he's been doing this all this time and I didn't even know. My weight isn't just affecting me. I feel so down that I've been doing this to him.
So I've been trying to eat really healthy since April 1st, but my weight just isn't moving much. Doesn't help that I had my 40th birthday this month too. I'm really trying to get things moving though. I'm surprised at how resistant my weight is being.
Well, time for bed. Hope I can make our nights better soon!
