Elysia's Skin Removal Surgery

I'm raising money for my excess skin removal after I've lost 120 lbs (and counting)! This money will go towards removing my skin apron on my lower abdomen area.

More Info

I've been overweight-- obese, almost my entire life. In summer of 2016, I finally decided enough was enough and to lose the weight. Over the course of a year I lost 100 lbs and an additional 20 lbs thereafter (still losing!) all through a complete diet change and exercise. No pills, no surgery, no gimmicks. Just counted my calories and made sure I put out more calories than I put in. 

With the weightless my confidence has boosted significantly. I used to hide behind the camera and now I'm more comfortable being in front of one. However, I'm still not at the level I know I could be at. I have a huge amount of excess skin in my lower abdomen area that hangs, known as a "skin apron". This skin apron creates a huge block in my mind-- body dysphoria-- and I almost can't see my progress. I always knew my body wouldn't go back naturally after almost a decade being overstretched. 

The removal would boost my confidence 10 fold and I could finally buy clothes that fit properly since clothes are currently loose up top but still tight on my abdomen. 

I'm getting married to the love of my life this year and want her to see me at my most confident.

Please consider donating and if you can't please share this.
