Caught on Camera Snoring: How This Embarrassing Snoring Video Changed My Life by Kyle Stephenson

This video of me snoring is not pretty! Neither are the pictures of what I looked like when I used to snore. To be honest, it’s really embarrassing looking back at these pictures and video. They were taken by my mom about seven months ago. Yes, my family is brutal that way!

I started snoring when I gained weight. I weighed about 65 pounds more than I do now in that video as well as the pictures shown here. I never snored before my weight gain. Not only was I snoring very loud, but it also looks like I even stopped breathing. I recall during the period when I was carrying excess weight, I always felt tired even after waking up. Probably because I wasn't breathing properly.

I choose to talk about my experiences with obesity because many people think that maintaining a healthy weight is about how we look. But feeling good is even more important than looking good. Feeling good means I feel awake in the mornings after a good night’s sleep and being able to focus and concentrate.

It is so nice to get all the compliments now that l am healthy, and I appreciate them all. But I think I am prouder of myself because I learned how to feel good in a healthy way.
