I’ve lost a lot of weight in the last year (200lbs all up) but I’m still obese. I have another probably 70lbs to go to be a healthy weight.

Still I thought I would be able to get off the machine by now since I’m basically the weight I was 15 yrs ago in high school and I didn’t have apnea back then.. yet when I don’t use the machine I feel like crap, I think. It’s hard to say because I tend to go to sleep with it on but then at some stage in the morning I take it off unconsciously. I’ve been waking up with a very dry mouth too which never used to happen either, so for some reason I’m breathing through my mouth now.

I almost feel like the positive pressure has stretched my sinus or something. There is basically ZERO information out there about someone losing weight and being able to wean off cpap. I’ve had it for about two years.

Just wonder if anyone else has weaned off it and what your experience was? I have a resmed mini with a nose mask.
