AT his heaviest Carl Woodberry tipped the scales at 240kg, but over the past two years he has slimmed down to 105kg after undergoing life-changing lap-band surgery.

Now he has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $30,000 for excess skin removal surgery. 

Excess skin is a common result of extreme weight loss and for Mr Woodberry, looking in the mirror serves as a painful reminder of his battle with the bulge. 

“It’s one of those things you hope won’t happen when you get weight loss surgery, but it’s going to happen,” he said.
