Tyler Perry surgery torn meniscus fitness weight gain

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. ????
