Secrets of Success

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.

  • I really like my C-PAP machine too. However, I am having a hard time going to sleep right now because it is so hot.
  • 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 - by SOFT_VAL67

  • 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.
