I joined this community a couple of months ago in the hope if finding inspiration to tackle a 4 and a half stone surplus and then disaster struck and I broke my ankle. On crutches and under the threat of an operation I tried to eat as healthily as I could to help heal my ankle as soon as possible with the result that in 6 weeks with minimal exercise I have managed to lose 12lbs. I can now move about without crutches although still cannot walk very far without my ankle swelling up like a balloon and still limping. The challenge therefore is to keep losing the excess weight without much exercise. I am doing my physio exercises religiously so hoping walking will get easier and I can swim so trying to swim a couple of times a week. It helps that I am out of the habit of eating sugary food (my downfall) and it is very motivating to think that every pound lost is less of a load on my poor ankle.
