My Weight Loss Progress

Tuesday, April 30, 2013


One of the biggest blessings of my life was the day my kind-hearted husband quietly said, "Honey, I hate to tell you this, but....
you snore.

That man can sleep through anything!  I'd probably been snoring, loudly, for years.  Now I was working night shift for three months, and he woke up while I was at snore stage.  Poor guy. I am so glad he decided to tell me.

The kind of snoring I was doing was the sleep apnea kind.  Soon I found myself on a CPAP machine at night, and begin to get some actual rest.  Here I am, four or five years later, and I recently got the pressure changed and a brand new mask.  What a difference it has made to my energy levels!  I'm still tired a lot, but not dragged-out, can't-possibly-move-any-more exhausted like I was.

By the way, Pat, if you're reading this, I took your advice and went to a podiatrist. Came home with shoe inserts and recommendations for good shoes, which I hope to find on a trip to a bigger city.


  1. I'm glad you got the CPAP. I've had mine for almost 2 years. It has helped me, but I still have issues sleeping, although it is caused by other health issues.

    I am walking better since my toe surgery, and hope to improve and have less aches and pains in my hips and back the more I move.

  2. Oh my goodness, I was shocked to open your blog and see you were already to the letter Z. I am way behind on reading your posts!
