Dear Abby: I need to shrink this birthday suit

Dear Abby: As a child, I was sexually, physically and mentally abused. As an adult, I suffered several miscarriages and two of my children died as infants. I have two living children, ages 9 and 16. It should be no surprise that I turned to food for comfort; I ate myself to a whopping 420 pounds.

After my marriage ended in a bitter divorce, I decided it was time for a complete makeover. I have lost more than 200 pounds. Because of my weight loss, I have gained better health, more energy, a better outlook on life — and almost 36 pounds of baggy skin. With this much excess skin, I’m sure you can imagine that I bring a whole new meaning to the word “skinny.”
