suspension forks seized

I have a set of 2009 Dart2 forks that I have been running since Oct 08. I have a new set of forks picked out, but I'm still saving up for them ($$$pendy). Meanwhile; it takes considerable force to even get them to move, and I weigh 200....so...I keep them locked out. Anybody out there know any cheap, even temporary fixes that will get me through another month?

Seems to me that disassembling the fork to find out why it's seizing and perhaps fix that is the way to go.
