Since the news of his injury, Perry has had a bit of a setback in terms of his goals when it comes to his physique. “I’ve gained about 12 lbs since then. I was so close to my goal, but now I feel like I’m starting over.” 

He wasn’t throwing a pity party though. Perry went on to be hopeful for the new year and especially after he has his surgery. “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? #willsmiththebestshapeofmylife”

He wasn’t alone in his thoughts and hopes for the new year, as many commented on the post. Even celebs like Fantasia Taylor said, “I went through that very same thing twice but I’m back up and I’m going to get to my goal so will you Big Bro.” Mario Lopez chimed in with, “Lookin good my man!”

Perry will persevere and he remains goal-oriented, which is quite inspirational to all in 2022.
