I have turned my life around I was 350lbs before and I now weigh 215 lbs I want to get down to 175lbs for boxing but it seems impossible could it be the execs skin? Do I need surgery? Or am I at a plato? I've gone down to 204lbs but I feel like im about to pass out.

That's awesome, keep it up and push yourself as far as you can! I'm at a Plato myself, but it's slowly melting off again, very slowly though, like maybe a pound a week. I had dropped 40 lbs in a few months at one point.

Well done, keep up the good work!  Make sure you are having lots of water, that will help your skin retain the elasticity so the skin firms up.  It might be worth doing some weights to tighten the skin around the problem areas.  You will find that keeping the skin hydrated will help, not overnight but gradually you will see a difference.
