You can skate as much as your natural ability, practice, and instruction takes you. No you probably won't be able to skate like an NHL'er, but you should be able to get up to a respectable beer league level with a couple years of work and some coaching.

Congrats on the fat loss...that's really tough. I can't move the scale at all anymore although I used to be able to when I was younger. You should be a lot quicker on the ice. I know I was much quicker with squats and deadlifts, even though I was (and am) much fatter than my teammates who would run and bike all the time. They had the endurance but I had the speed. If you can do both, you'll be well ahead of the curve.
