notes from zleakydome

In 2005 I was still under a doctor's care - on rather huge doses of ms contin (morphine sulphate long acting) and 'chemically dependent' to said drug. The doctor insisted I was not addicted and I 'needed' it - to be addicted apparently you must enjoy the drug and be doing it for pleasure not need. Well I certainly didn't enjoy it or its side effects - the worst - not sure if it was the loss of 'mentation' as the m.d. put it, the intestinal side effects which linger, the top weight of 370 lbs ...

Well I certainly didn't enjoy it or its side effects - the worst - not sure if it was the loss of 'mentation' as the m.d. put it, the intestinal side effects which linger, the top weight of 370 lbs or the aggravation of my already crippling arthritis. After 6 mos of cutting back on dosages I finally bid the well meaning but stupid doctor good bye and the drugs and weight along with him. It took 18 mos to loose the 203 lbs and now I want to loose the last 10 - (20?) to take all extra stress off my joints. I'll take the pain over the drugs any day of the week - Thanks to G-d for my will power and an affordable swimming pool near by. Maybe I was a whale or dolphin in a former life but in the water is the best place to be - most pain free - most liberating and when there I can dance!

8/14/11 - have lost the rest - now maintain around 135-140, which is a healthy weight for me.

Your story is amazing. You are truly a Sparkpeople success story. I agree so much with you about the water. I have a back problem and when it was at its worse, I used to stay in the water for hours at a time, the only time I was pain free. Congratulations on maintaining for a whole year!!! You have figured it out!

I'm so glad I found your page! Your success and the story of where you started from is incredibly inspiring to me. I also think your "leaky" dome house is amazingly wonderful :)

Happy Leap Day! We are given an extra day this year to do with it as you please. What will you be doing today? Even if you have to go into work, make it special for yourself. You can start you day off dancing around to your favorite song or heck sing as loud as you can to it. Maybe treat yourself to a little facial mask in the evening. How about making breakfast for dinner? Change something up today to enjoy the extra day we have received.
