I am 15 days into my Sleep apnea experiment of losing weight. Today is August 15th and I realize that first this is a weight loss experiment to figure out how to lose weight. Then once I lose the weight I can review my sleep apnea results to see if there is any correlation between weight loss and sleep apnea.
So far I have lost 5 pounds. My plan to lose the weight is as follows:
- Track the total calories eaten each day and record the calories in a spreadsheet.
- Record my weight each day in the spreadsheet.
- Review the relationship between my calorie intake and weight loss and adjust the total calories to lose weight.
The first two days of the sleep apnea diet I consumed 2,000 calories and this did not lead to weight loss. I dropped my calorie intake to 1,700 calories and have been losing weight consistently. So far 5 pounds have dropped off. Unfortunately I gained some back over the weekend because on Friday and Saturday I went to events and did not track calories and overate. Today is Monday and I am right back on my sleep apnea calorie counting diet.
I will succeed! And this will be an amazing sleep apnea experiment of losing weight. But it will take time. I am motivated to find out if the true method for curing sleep apnea is simply to lose weight.
My plan it to track my sleep apnea statistics every time I lose 10 pounds, starting at a weight of 220. When I reach 220 I will begin recording and analyzing my sleep apnea results. When I reach 210 I will analyze again, and will do the same at 190; 180; 170 etc.… These will be the intervals for my sleep apnea weight loss experiment and alalysis
Hopefully this will work, it will be a very interesting sleep apnea weight loss experiment.
That is all I have for now I will keep you posted when I reach my first weight loss interval of 220.
