For years now, my wife has slept with earplugs because my snoring awakens her. Since my son has been away at school the past two years, she has been actually going into his bedroom many nights to escape the snore machine.
Judith left town shortly after I started the Take Shape for Life program and just returned on Wednesday, April 23. Since she’s been back, I’ve found her sound asleep next to me every morning. That hasn’t happened in months. I asked her why. She said she hasn’t been waking up in the middle of the night to my snores galore.
I’m wondering if the fact that I’m down 17 pounds since starting TSFL has anything to do with it. You bet! Now that I think about it, I’m resting more soundly, awakening more alert, and needing less sleep. I never expected this outcome from dropping a few pounds.
I’m very thankful. Thankful for…
the loss of weight
the return of my sound sleeping
the return of Judith’s sound sleep
the increase in energy
the gain of some waking time
the healthier lifestyle
