Help Remove Andrew's Excess Skin

Hey guys, I've decided to set up a fundraising page to help with the cost of skin removal surgery after much encouragement from family and friends. It's my dream to like me, but my body image is the anchor keeping me from the complete acceptance of myself. 

I began training for a healthier and happier life on February 6th, 2008 and to date have lost nearly 140 lbs., but the one thing that keeps me from completing my journey to physical happiness is the extra skin that comes from losing so much weight.  

I'm nervous and somewhat embarrased about asking for help, but the cost is so expensive and insurance will have nothing to do with aiding in the process. I'm very much open to EARNING donations if there's something I can do through speaking engagements, etc.

Anyone who knows me knows that I love working with other people who are ready to overcome the obstacles in their lives, (for me) a direct result of food addiction.

Many people at my gym say I inspire them. That means more to me than I could possibly put into words. I want to help anyone who wants to help themselves. Today I'm the one asking for help.

Fat isn't fun, but I take full responsibilty for my circumstances. 

I would love to hear your thoughts/suggestions/questions and thank you for taking the time to read my story. 

Impossible is an opinion.
