Yes. I gained 10-15 pounds in a year from doing literally nothing for like 6 days a week. I also drank a 6 pack or more on 4-5 nights of those atleast. Plus with all the crappy eating habits. I'm actually kind of surprised I only gained 10-15 pounds now that I think about it.


But now I'm exercising 5-6 days per week, eating relatively healthy, and drinking alcohol once or twice per week at most.

It sure did, darn tootin'. Spending my days doing nothing but sitting, sleeping, and eating was bound to have an affect. I'm working on getting an exercise regimen together; I've grown tired of constantly being... well, tired.

I am the total opposite. I end up loosing way too much weight. When stressed out I just loose my appetite and sometimes I will forget to eat. I can get down to an unhealthy size.

I lost weight because I was too afraid to eat in front of people but since I've been on paxil I put most of it back on :(

Fluctuating weight is a common problem in people with SA. Either too fat or too skiny.

I've gained 20 pounds over the last year, recently lost 10 of it though.
