Lately I have been sleeping ok, but sometimes wake up to go bathroom sometimes 2 or 3 times, but if I drink tea in the evening it will keep me tripping to the bathroom. I also have a Cpap but can't use it when I get bad sinus and allergy attacks. Lately have been not using it. Summer is ok for not but have to use it in winter. I also read for about an hour before I sleep. I get a lot of fatigue from FM and arthritis and the weather plays a factor on the aches and pains. Especially the cold and rain.

You are what you make yourself. Your motivation is yourself. What you want is your motivation for losing weight. This comes from within. Apparently someone mentioned to me there is no such thing as will power. The power is YOU.
I wake up several times a night but get about 7 hrs anyway. I really appreciate the nights the dog does NOT want to go out during the night. Once in a while I have a bad night and then I give up, get up and read or go on the internet. I suspect my BP is not regulated enough because often I have to go to the bathroom. So, NO I don't sleep well, sometimes.

No, not really. I usually average 6 hours nightly. Sometimes, it will take an hour or more to fall asleep. Then, I wake up throughout the night; bathroom trip or to adjust my sleeping position due to arthritis pain.

Falling asleep is an occasional problem,usually related to stress or something I ate. Usually sleep well with at least 1 bathroom trip. If DH is restless or snoring really bad, I go into the other room.

I sleep well from 6 to 7 hours but up 2 or 3 times for bathroom trips, then right back to sleep
In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
Some nights are better than others. Most nights I sleep about 6 to 6-1/2 hours but feel better on weekends when I get 7 to 7-1/2. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea a couple years ago and started sleeping with oxygen. Now that I've lost 20 pounds I can sleep without it; ironically I slept better with it, even though it was noisy and restricted my movement. Now I wake up a couple times each night, even though I don't actually get up. I guess I'm still adjusting.

I do not sleep many hours but when I am asleep I sleep well. Sometimes I only sleep 4-5 hours though. I need to work on sleeping longer as I know that would be better for me health. I often get up and sit in my recliner and then sometimes fall back to sleep for a "nap".
How about you? Do you SLEEP well?
