Use Your Mask

This Sparked Me!

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.

    i agree, it took me along time to get used to wearing the mask, but now i have the hang of it, there are still nights from time to time when i only wear it for a few hours, but i still havent noticed any positives in the hunger dept, i havent noticed it is helping me to lose weight in any way...but happy if it does for others

    I was glad to read this. Dr put my husband on a bi-pap machine this year and he isn't as hungry and has lost about 8 lbs without changing anything but I didn't make the connection!

    Thanks for sharing, my Doctor has wanted me to get this machine and I have been fighting. You gave me a good reason to agree.

    Thank you for this info. Due to severe stuffy nose I have not used my mask during my worst allery season. I was surprised at your info about how it affect the eating.
Have a blessed weekend.
