Nicole Castovince has struggled with her body since she was a kid. She started gaining weight at eight years old and was clinically obese by 12 years old. Then, after major life events at age 26, Nicole decided to change her life — and she did it. Recently, Nicole lost an amazing 200 pounds and says she accomplished it through sweat equity, hard work, and meal prep.

Despite the weight loss, Nicole's journey isn't over yet. She must get through what she calls her "finish line" — losing 20 to 30 pounds of excess skin. To remove the skin, Nicole's only option is a $30,000 surgery that she cannot afford. To achieve the look she wants to have in her wedding dress, Nicole started a GoFundMe campaign aimed at reaching her final weight loss goal.
