My Doc put me on sleeping pills because she said that I wasn't losing weight because I wasn't sleeping. AHHHH, the catch 22!!! I do fall asleep faster on days that I weight train, that is for sure. I just can't seem to stay asleep.

I don't take sleeping pills now and haven't for awhile. But when I did I didn't notice anything like that.

emoticon Big scrapper - exercise is great for speeding up the metabolism - especially weight lifting as the benefits continue long after the exercise period is over and it really helps you sleep as long as you exercise during the day and not right before you intend to go to bed.

I read a little blurb recently that some medications used for insomnia can cause an already slow metabolism to slow down even more. It didn't give any more detail than that. I haven't had time to hit the internet airways, but thought I would ask here. Have any of you seen a weight loss change either before, during, or after insomnia meds? I know that NOT sleeping can cause a weight loss plateau, so where is the balance??? :)
