It make not make sense at first, but if you Sleep More , you'll weigh less over the long run. "The link between sleep and weight loss recently received a big boost: a long-term, large-scale study has confirmed that both too little sleep and too much sleep lead to weight gain."

How much sleep do you get?

Pounds off since December 2009= 30lbs. At this rate, it will be years until I reach goal, so I hope you don't mind having me around for a spell.

I have to admit there are days, ok- more days than not- that I don't get more than 4 or so hours a day but, I have a very good excuse: My son is 4 months old, teething and has his days and nights mixed up :) Hopefully, I'll get back to a normal amount of sleep soon!
