    A couple of years ago I was diagnosed with OSA (sleep apnea) I am a very stubborn person and I refused to believe I had this. There was no way I was gonna wear a mask to make me sleep.

    So what I did was set about ways to cure my snoring. I tried every position possible, nose strips, snoring guards, sprays etc. Nothing worked.

    While I was searching I noticed over weigh kept being mentioned for me this was the last resort as I was happy with my life style.

    In February this year circumstances changed in my life and I decided to go backpacking in Australia. There was just one thing holding me back.. My snoring!! This was a huge problem as I wanted to stop in hostels sharing a room with 8 or more strangers!

    So I had one more thing to try, obviously i tried all the fad diets etc but I was not getting the results I wanted and I was running out of time :(

    In August I joined a gym and started just to watch what i ate. I have now lost 16lb not only do i have no clothes that fit me anymore :D I DO NOT snore any more.!!!!!!!!!

    I am sat listening to a recording of myself sleeping that i made last night :)

    Now i cant wait to loose my next 16 i am sooooooooooooo happy!! Australia here i come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well done, thats a fantastic story - my ex used to get really annoyed by my snoring and I still get a little nervous when sleeping in the same room as someone. Have a fantastic time in Oz!

    Thank you everyone.

    I found out the other day that I have lost a lot more than i realized. At work on January the 1st we decided we were going to have a competition at work to see who could loose the most weigh. We wrote down the figures when we first got weighed and I was 18 stone 10lb so I have actually lost 3 stone 6lb!

    woohoo!
