So I've been on MMP (Methadone Maintenance Program) for 5 years now. I was 145 when I started and as I've gone up on my milligrams the first few months I gained weight. A lot. I'm 210 now. The unfortunate thing about Methadone is when you're first on it, it gives you THE Absolute worst sugar cravings.....which of course makes you gain weight. It also makes losing the weight incredibly difficult....and I mean DIFFICULT. Weight gain was a small trade off for finally being sober. But now that I'm trying to have my rainbow baby, it makes things worse. Ironically I got down to 176 when I was pregnant last year, but I miscarried at 12weeks💔 My obgyn knows all about my MMP & supports me 100%. When you're on this medication while pregnant, you will go up in milligrams because the baby takes what it needs from that too. Since my miscarriage in June, I've gotten almost back to what I was at before & I'm still going down. The lower the better since I already know I'll have to go up once I'm pregnant again.
Now I need to drop as much weight as possible. THIS is where I need the help. Is anyone out there in a similar situation that can help me?? I need to have as many "+'s" on my side as possible. I've already had 4 miscarriages and don't have much time left. I need all the Baby Dust possible.
