I made the mistake of thinking CPAP therapy would be a magic weight-loss experience, but as it turns out you still have watch what you eat. Exercise will help with that, and help you sleep better. And watch the coffee. If you don't think caffeine affects your sleep, try skipping it for a day or two. You'll find yourself nodding off as soon as the sun goes down. I have to limit myself to two cups in the morning. Except days like today, where I had a third.
Thanks, Sleepster. Maybe I'm just being too optimistic on the weight loss, after hearing it from a colleague who's on cpap for years and told me about the benefits. I had no reason to doubt him, but maybe he did get some weight loss early on, but probably regained weight. Will keep in mind your advice on exercise and diet - that's a tougher goal, but one step at a time.
As for coffee, I've lessened intake, typically 2 cups a day. One at mid-morning, and the second one during early afternoon, during those nice warm moments when my eyes glaze over after reading typical office email.
