Interesting organization. Worth checking out.

I looked at KISMIF too. I see it is focused on the Cubs and Weeblos. It is a very nice website for anyone into scouting.

You can go to my SP page and read a little about it. If you click on my official Delaware state team I have thread near the bottom of that page where I talk about it. I am amazed that a lot of people have not heard of it. They use a lot of our results to try to help people loose weight. For example you hear the advice to always eat breakfast well that comes from this study. They found that the folks that are successful 98% eat breakfast every day! Like me!!

The weight loss is a funny thing....well not really, I have lost about 170#s since I was RX back in 2003. The weight started coming off because I had more energy to exercise. Also the body can not recoop from exercise without a good night sleep. I also started making way better dietary choices. I had a heart attack last April 19 2009 wow almost been a year. They had to put me on some strong drugs so I have gained back 17# this year DESPITE even harder efforts on my part. I am in the gym about 4 days a week and walk on average 15 miles a week. I actually walk 20 miles this week new record. Well I gained 1.6# so far but I have until Friday to try to get it off. Friday is my official weigh in that I record in SP. So even us old timer "Pros" still struggle.. I think I can consider myself a Pro because I am one of the members on the National Weight Loss Registry. I have been on that now, I think, for three years. This is why SP is so great to keep us trying... it is a marathon and not a sprint, it should take a lifetime to make it to the finish line.

I, too, hoped for weight loss after getting diagnosed, but I think my bad habits from years past are going to be hard to break. I did join a gym and am walking with friends, but my appetite is still huge and I can't break the addictions to carbs and sugar. Still plugging along, though, and grateful for my CPAP.

Long Live Wombat Towers and all who dwell within!

When I started using the cpap, the weight didn't come off. I too, have to work, sweat, eat really healthy & stay in my calorie range, then I might lose 1 pound now & then.

I graduated from a cpap to a bipap and I am doing so much better. I was feeling just like you, I couldn't stay awake in the daytime. The bipap took care of that problem. I couldn't and wouldn't do without it now.

emoticon Cpap success stories are wonderful. I am so happy for you.

I got more energy after starting the cpap and consequently did more activities and ate more.

Some people drop weight like crazy when they start sleeping well.

The rest of us don't. As you said, we have to work for every pound we shed.

I've been diagnosed and using a CPAP for about 3 years now. I've had astounding results. No longer falling asleep at work, or having to pull over when driving. I'm a believer, and don't even nap without using the machine. I like my sleep doctor very much. All is groovy - BUT. From things I'd read, and what my doctor said, I thought that once I wasn't exhausted all the time, and my metabolism was up and running, the weight would come off. Hasn't happened. At all. Period. I didn't expect it all to leave without effort, but did want just a bit. Nope, I'm going to have to work for every ounce.
