Erin's New Body

My name is Erin, Im 37 years old and lost 130 pounds thus far. I've been overweight my entire life, some being hereditary and to be honest some was on me. Over the course of five years through proper diet and exercise I've been able to shed the weight that's been burdening my body. At my heaviest I was 330 pounds, now I am 200 but the struggle I am feeling now is the excess skin which could not recover from the extreme weight loss. There are two surgeries , one for my arms called the brachioplasty and another combined surgery of the abdomen and pannus called abdominoplasty & panniculectomy a total of about 7 hours under. It's taken me a while to get here and insurance is currently debating helping cover part of it, but it is aesthetic. I'm more scared of asking for help and funds then I am of the actual surgery, I know the scars will make me finally see my self in a positive light for the weight i've lost. 

I want to meet my goal by January 1, 2018 so I can go into the new year as the new me.  In the meantime I will continue to push myself towards a healthier me, go to yoga, and volunteer at the horse farm. My diet right now consists of paleo/ketogenic which is high fat and low to no carbohydrates. This combined with proper exercise can push my goal to a normal weight but now I'm asking you , my friends, family, community, & even strangers to help me reach this goal. I've been dreaming of for since I was a little girl. Help me be the person I see on the inside. Help me shed this cocoon and spread my wings and shine!
