Discussions that mention morphine

Weight Loss board

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="3"][COLOR="Indigo"]I am dieting hard enough to make myself CRAZY (3 fat free, 0 carb protein drinks a day), and I just went a week and lost NOTHING. I was like "WHAT?" I've got to lose SOME weight before I can exercise.

I have serious a serious degenerative spinal disorder w/numerous herniated disks and all kinds of arthritis through out my spine. I'm on 90mg of morphine a day just to basically exist, never mind MOVE!!!

FINALLY I managed to lose like 9 pounds over 6 weeks. It's very disheartening to be losing weight SO slowly--when I went from eating 1/2 a gal of Ice Cream plus meals every day--to these 3 low cal shakes. You'd think there'd at least be some fast initial weight loss.

I am 5'1 and weigh 260 lbs. I can barely move and I KNOW a LOT of the pain IS my weight. I am 41 years old. I walk about 10 feet and get horrible wrenching charliehorses in my spine and shooting pain from the ruptured disks. I live in rural New England and no where near an exercise pool.
