I'm not sure our member Sleeprider will appreciate your downloading his data, but I'll let him chime in on this lol! On a more serious note it will be helpful if you could post screenshots of your data on SleepyHead when you get a chance to do this. Kudos on the weight loss!!

Sleepy head is the software. I need a bigger sample size to display
results. I am not downloading someone else's sleep data.

I will loosen mask (might be too tight) and adjust pressure

I also just have 2 pillows taped together so i will work on that too.Thanks
