My Name is Summer. 24 years old and a mother of a 2 year son.

In 2014  I dropped to the lowest and unhealhiest point in my life. I made the decision to completely change my life and go on a extreme weightloss/ health journey.
over the course of 15 months I put every ounce of will power, change and literal sweat that I had in me resulting in loosing over 200lbs.

I have been obese as long as I could remember. I was almost 200lbs before I turned 7. I was starting the 9th grade weighing 360lbs, which I would push to 400lbs by the next year. My health so was poor. I aqquired Diabities & high blood pressure by age 16. I pretended not to care and tried to keep up with my peers, live life and "be normal", but I was dying inside. Extreme depression and anxiety set in soon after.
It took years of bullying, being treated so differently from others, constant body pain and a very devastating visit to the hospital at the age of 20, to finally realize I needed to make a dramatic life change. I so badly wanted to see a positive change in my life and live longer. I'd had it!!! I was finally ready and I wasn't giving up this time.

I began by changing my diet. I ate very clean and soon after became a vegetarian, I then began working out like crazy. Intense cardio and weight training. It seemed for the first few months, I wasn't noticing results but I didn't get discouraged. I continued to push and all at once I started dropping weight like crazy. 5 lbs here, 10 lbs there and everyone was beginning to notice.

I continued on with my health and weightloss journey. My gym even noticed and posted my progress in the facility.
Now today, I weigh 198lb with my BMI at an all time low, I continue to work hard in the gym and maintain a healthy diet and my support system at home is amazing.

Doctors have now ruled me very healthy & many are stunned by how I've taken my health into my own hands.
Diabeties has totally disappeared and my blood pressure at great numbers, along with all other tests.
---

The only problem I am left with is a large amount of excess skin (in my stomach especially ) and because my skin was stretched out for so long, there is barely any collagen or elastin left in it. I continue to incorporate body toning exercises into my routine but have been told I will need Excess skin removal surgery. 

While saving as much as I possibly can towards my cause, I am still very far away from reaching the dollar goal.
I am asking each and every one of you to help me in the next step of my journey. Any contributions of any amount will help so much and is beyond appriciated.

I thank you all for you support. I will continue to keep everyone updated.

I want you to go on doing great dealings throughout your life summer. I too struggled with weight and it took years for me to afford skin removal. The feeling is freeing to leave behind the weight and even more to leave the baggage from the weight. You are going to be a brand new you. Know that everyone watching you is rooting for you even from afar. Return this favor to someone who needs it one day when you make it because you will. Your heart is taking you far.
