I totally agree with this article because up until 10 months ago I was only getting about 2 1/2 hours of sleep a night because of a severe case of sleep apena! During the testing they discovered I quit breathing 114 times in a hour which was affecting my sleep and my heart.
Everyday I would stumble through the day in a fog and I could never seem to get enough to eat, I was always hungry even shortly after I ate! I just kept packing on the pounds. I was so exhausted that it was hard to exercise because of the lack of energy. When I got my CPAP machine and I started sleeping the whole night and getting the rest my body needed, I no longer ate constantly and had more energy to exercise.
Since that time I have lost 31 pounds and I am still going strong. Even though weight loss is never easy it has become so much easier now that I am getting enough sleep!
