Tyler Perry took to social media to share an update on his health and fitness journey.
The media mogul revealed shortly after his 52nd birthday he suffered a torn meniscus and had to undergo surgery.
He shared that the injury set him back on his fitness and as a result, he gained 12 pounds.
But, in typical Tyler Perry fashion, he shared a word of encouragement as we all prepare for the new year.
I took this picture this past September around my 52nd birthday. I was killing it in the gym. Right after that I tore my meniscus and was told I needed surgery.
I’ve gained about 12 lbs since then. I was so close to my goal, but now I feel like I’m starting over.
All of that to say, sometimes life will set you back, but as long as you have a breath in your body, you have to keep fighting. I’ll get it back when I recover.
Happy New Year! Let’s get after it in 2022. Who’s with me?

You never know what someone is going through.
Like Tyler, I am looking forward to the new year and I wish all of you well in mind, body, and soul as we head into 2022. ????
