I was in a car accident in 2006, my ankle and foot was severely injured and that has limited my mobility. Before the accident I had lost a great deal of weight, I parked my car and walked everywhere. I even bought a shopping cart and walked to the grocery stores. I only used my car to go to the doctor's office or out of town.In the four years since the accident, I have gained back all the weight that I loss and then some. Since I can no longer walk like I used to do, what kind of activity can I do to help me get my weight under control again?

How strong is your ankle now ?

You can try pedaling on a stationary exercise bike which will also help strengthen your ankle without adding the responsibility of body support as walking does since you will be seated and the pedaling will work both the muscles and tendons associated with your (legs) thighs, knees and most importantly your ankles.

Burning the additional calories will help you to lose weight and also to maintain your blood glucose levels.
