obstructive sleep apnea (one of two kinds) is improved by weight loss because there is actually less tissue in the throat blocking off air flow.
I agree with cathylynn, but wanted to add as well that any kind of sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea, that keeps you from regularly getting a good night's sleep, can contribute to weight gain as well. Researchers have proven a link between weight loss/keeping weight off and good sleep habits - those who regularly get a solid 8 hours a night are more likely to have lower weight. Those who don't get good sleep tend to gain weight more easily. So those with sleep apnea may have a harder time losing weight if it's not being properly treated.
