Use Your mask

Before I found out I had sleep apnea I was hungry all the time. Once I got my machine and mask to use, although I hated wearing the mask, I now use my machine faithfully. In the first three months I lost 18 pounds doing nothing else different. I was not hungry all the time anymore. Use your machine, if you need it. You will lose weight easier.

Every Little Bit Helps

Try changing little things to help you on your journey. Like parking far from your destination and walking that extra bit to get there. Drink one extra glass of water a day. Eat one more fruit or vegetable each day. Get up and walk or exercise during tv commercials. Whatever extra you can do each day will all add up to success.

Extend your life

Did you know that for every one hour of exercise you do, you extend your expected lifespan by 2 hours? It is like putting extra time in a savings account! For every 12 hours, you add a full day! So get moving!

Treat your Feet

After a workout my feet are tired. I bought some cream (I use either foot cream or body lotion). After my shower and before I get dressed each day, I rub the cream on my tired feet. This also keeps my shoes smelling nice, as well as soothing my feet.

Hunger cues

My dietitian taught me to listen to my body for hunger cues. For example, I am not that hungry at lunchtime, but starving after I go to the gym. SO I now have a snack at lunchtime and lunch in mid afternoon when I get back from the gym. She told me to make sure I have plenty of protein then.
