Go for regular follow ups with your doctor to check to see if the apneas are under control and if your sleep is adequate.

Agree with you, being overweight can promote Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Follow good sleep hygiene measures like going to bed at the same time, waking up at the same time, smoking and caffeinated beverages. You could avoid taking alcohol and try to sleep on your side as this keeps the airways patent. If any nasal blocks try to keep them patent with OTC nasal decongestants. Aim for optimum weight with exercises or long walks. These measures will help to reduce the severity of your symptoms.
