Right now I am 5'10 and weigh 196. My B.M.I. is 28.1. I am 40 years old and am very active (Hike twice a week and swim in the ocean 2-3 times a week).
I used to run 30 miles a week or bike 180 miles a week up until my late 20's/early 30's when my ankle and knee started hurting. At the time I weighed 165-175 pounds.
I read that in order to not be considered overweight, I would need to get my weight down to 173 pounds. This would be a B.M.I. of 24.8. A B.M.I. of 25-29 is considered overweight.
Has anyone here who was overweight when they discovered they had Sleep Apnea lost enough weight that they were no longer considered overweight? If so, did you no longer have sleep apnea? It would be nice to not need a CPAP Machine if this is really about weight.
I read online that the best treatment for Sleep Apnea is losing weight. I am wondering if I get my weight back down to 173, will I no longer have Sleep Apnea? I haven't been down to that weight for 10 years.
