When my friend who has had 2 ACL tears, told me how she lost a lot of weight during her recovery, I laughed at the thought that I would. I'm not the healthiest eater, then add in the fact I can't exercise, I thought I'd gain at least 5-7 pounds. But somehow, my friend was right, and I've lost 5 pounds. I don't know if anyone else can tell from the picture, but it seems to me that all that weight came from my leg.
I really don't want to have to spend time trying to gain back all the muscle in my leg. But I guess that's another thing I'm going to have to deal with, and for anyone else with injury to expect.
