The buzz about snoring

I got the results from my sleep study, and the apnea is not as bad as I'd thought. atara has mentioned that I don't snore as badly as I used to. It's worth noting that even with the weight I put on in 2015, I am still about 15 pounds lighter than I was at one point.

The doctor who gave me the results from the test seemed a bit put-off that I had even taken it, almost like I was wasting their time for getting more than 3 hours of sleep a night. She showed me the charts they made during the night, pointing out that that I have severe, life-threatening apnea when I sleep on my back, but only mild when I sleep on my side. She said they would hook me up with a CPAP if I felt that I really needed one, but her recommendation was to sleep on my side and lose some weight.

I've already been mandated to lose some weight because of the diabetes issue, so I guess I can kill two birds with one stone. atara and I are both back on the weight-management train again, so we'll see how it goes. It's easier when you are both on board. I've dropped about six pounds since my last visit to the doctor. That's nothing to dance in the streets about, but at least it's going in the right direction.

Winter refuses to release its hold on us. We got more snow yesterday, and today they are calling for rain, freezing rain, and more snow. Perhaps May will cut us a break.
When I went for a walk on Sunday afternoon, I was the only person in the park. It was a little odd seeing the place so empty - there are usually people about, even in the winter, but I guess the drawn out cold has driven people to hibernate.
