When I was diagnosed with sleep apnea, my pulmonologist told me that I would probably lose "some" weight without trying, because most patients do. It was right before I had to quit my job because of my other health problems, and my husband and I moved to Wisconsin.
A few months after we moved to Wisconsin, I had my first doctor's appointment and discovered I had somehow "accidentally" lost 20 lbs. Now, was it the CPAP machine, or not working 8-10 hours a day sitting within 15 feet of a vending machine?
I'm not sure, but it was the first time I have ever lost even a single pound without trying to (I didn't even have a scale at the time, and the only difference in my eating habits was that I was able to eat what and when I wanted).
