    3 years ago i weight 200lbs im 6foot.. Got into a quad accident broke my right back leg Scroll down to see the leg its the back little bone i broke twisted and tore all my ligament in my ankle.Well put me off my leg and ankle for 7 months then the doctor told me to do go up and down on my tippy toes.and i couldn't every time i tried it cause major pain in my leg.Went back to doctors they said it could take up to 5 years.. to fully heal!! well the next year i found up my son has muscle dystrophy duchenne So that threw me into depressing . With him having so little time on i want to be able to spend much time as i can with him .and as of right now i cant walk more then 50 feet before i have to sit down and wait for the pain in my leg to stop before i can walk again i currently weight about 340 ive tried doing work out but anything that has to do with my leg cause me pain... so here is my question what can i do to lose weight so i can enjoy time with my son. Any help is much welcome!

    I think for you, it will be mainly about your nutrition(like it is for everybody, in reality). Listen to your doctors and physical therapists for your exercise and activity advice. Do what they ask you to do. They will help you heal properly.

    To lose weight, you may want to speak with a nutritionist to evaluate your current nutritional habits and recommend changes. Have you ever tracked what you eat or kept a food journal? That would be a good place to start... check out the sticky threads in this forum, too. Look closely at the ones about nutrition.

    Good luck!:tu:

    2600 to LOSE weight, when you can't exercise - can hardly walk?

    That seems like a tremendous number of calories. :confused:
