Anyways, it looks like another post that I will be jumping from one random thing to another. We should all be used to that by now.
Ok, where was I going with this? Ahhhhh yes, Den snores like a MOFO. It's terrible. He is a soft spoken person until he gets in bed then he's so loud. I personally have come to the conclusion that he isn't really a quiet person, he just has no voice left from snoring all night. He also likes to point out that I snore. To which I say, you have to sleep to snore. We have tried pills, sprays and the only thing that helped was using two pillows. It helped but the minute his head moved off the second pillow, he was snoring and I was back to plotting his death.
Then I ordered the snore guards. And overnight it was a whole new world. And after a month and a half, I had lost 10 pounds and HAVE DONE NOT A DAMNED THING!
There are a few things that you need to know about using them. You have to boil them and CAREFULLY mold them. As soon as it starts to melt, pop that sucker in your mouth. You will need to align your bottom jaw with your top teeth. While it is still hot, push it against your teeth with your tongue while biting down. Also pull in your lips and push on them with your fingers to help get a better mold in front. It's a lot to do at once but it will help you get a better fit. Den and I both had a bit of jaw pain for the first few days but it goes away. We also had sore spots on our gums for a couple of days. They will go away soon. And one last yucky thing, you are going to drool terribly in the beginning. Sleep with a washcloth. Den and I have been married for so long that a little drooling doesn't even phase us.
Now on to the best part, I'm losing weight and doing nothing. Plus, I feel much better when I wake up. I think what was happening was I was so tired I was eating more and craving carbs. Once I felt refreshed, I didn't reach for that stuff as much. Will this keep up? I have no idea but just feeling refreshed is enough to continue on.
So if you are dieting and not losing weight, this might be a way to go. Hey, its something to try. Just make sure that you get one for your partner too. Share the fun, I always say.
