Steph, a part-time community worker said: "I thought losing weight would make me happier but the lose skin has destroyed my confidence.
"I wanted to lose weight to enjoy life, clothes and being active instead of wishing or watching other people enjoying themselves.
"My partner loves me regardless. He says I'm not the same person and that I'm more reserved now that I've lost weight. I'm more insecure now.
"My skin gets sore so I rely on creams when it breaks from sweating excessively or rubs on clothing."
Steph decided to lose weight in January 2017 after a lifetime of being obese and suffering from health problems because of her size.
She said she lost weight by regular exercise and cutting out processed food including her much loved kebab meat and chips.
Now weighing a healthy 67 kilos, Steph said despite her dramatic weight loss she still feels insecure about her body after she was left with saggy excess skin on her arms, stomach and legs which causes painful sores across her body and limit her mobility.
She said that she was able to shed the kilos after ditching years of bad eating habits.
Steph added: "I used to survive on coffee through the day then have one super-sized plate of mainly fried and processed food at night. I just cut out as much processed food as I could. I limit myself to one takeaway a month, cook my meals myself and eat lean meats and grill or bake food instead of fry."
She is now hoping to raise $22,000 on GoFundMe and asking strangers to help her pay for the excess skin to be removed.
She said: "I know most people see it as cosmetic and there is a small aspect of it being cosmetic but surgery isn't a decision to be taken lightly and I'm going to be left with scars.
"I'm raising the money on GoFundMe for my sanity rather than vanity. I've done all I possibly can to change and the next steps are in the hands of a surgeon.
"I'm self-conscious about what I wear, I have good days where I feel amazing for what I've achieved but then I have bad days and I feel rubbish about my situation. I don't want to continue to have issues with clothing and want to have to hide away and cover up.
"I'm happy with myself and the person I am but incredibly self-conscious and feel I need to cover up to stop rude comments and stares.”
