Welcome!! Slow and steady - listen to your body and let it heal. As mentioned there are great resources for chair exercises and upper body movements that won't put stress on your hips and legs. Good luck with your recovery and your weight loss/healthy life style journey.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

I was out of shape, overweight, and starting to have some major health problems (diabetes, asthma, allergies, high cholesterol). Then on march 2nd I was in a head on collision with a 19 year old who was texting. It cracked my left hip, broke my right knee cap, and right foot bones had to be screwed back together. I couldn't use my legs for 2 months (gained about 15 to 20 lbs more from being bed ridden). The last check up I had went well healing good and was approved to stand on crutches with left leg. Problem is leg so weak couldn't stand on it. I was approved by Dr to get in pool and swim, I started last week and I'm seeing some improvement. I want to loose 70 pounds to get my health back and walk again. I just don't know where to go from here. Seems like I should do more, but I'm so limited at what I can do. Please any advice would be greatly appreciated.

God Bless You on your Journey!
