Focus Stacking with the 105mm Micro VR

I have been trying to practice the focus stacking technique for macro photography. My kit involves a Nikon D90 and Nikon 105mm VR Micro lens.

This micro lens changes the object size as you rotate the focus ring, which means you cannot simply lock the camera in one position and take multiple photos only by rotating the ring each time.

Moving the camera back and forth while keeping the focus at 1:1 does not change object size but obviously changes the framing.

Is this just impossible to do or am I missing something here?

So can someone please teach me how to do focus stacking with this lens?

Thanks a lot guys, I appreciate the help.
