walking with an air boot? without suppport?

In the last week, the doctor said I can bear weight and walk with my air boot. How much weight? 100%. I have been non weight bearing for 7 weeks.
My doctor wants me to walk in boot without crutches, but haven't been able to do so yet. it's been a week now. and he wants me off my crutches by next week when I see him.

Have you had problems walking in your air boot without crutches?

I had surgery and had screws, pin, and wire to fix my ankle and had torn ligaments. I just cannot get my good leg off the floor. It's almost as if it's not at same level as my air boot. I kind of hop little steps, but not smooth walking at all.
Help please.
