In 2010, Nathan the Fotographing Fat Kid was ready for a new life. Sure he had an amazing wife and had just started graduate school at his childhood dream university, but there was something that was holding him back: his weight. Even as a child, Nathan dealt with obesity. Eating controlled his life. After years of countless attempts to get healthy, it was looking hopeless for the FFK. Then on September 18th, 2010, he took one more stab at this whole weight loss thing. That was when Nathan started posting daily accounts of his food intake and activity, along with a ridiculous anecdote or two on the FFK blog. Thanks to the support of his amazing wife Megan, his friends and family, and the online weight loss community, Nathan started to drop some serious pounds. By his 24th birthday in January 2011, Nathan was below 300 pounds for the first time in since 2001. In August 2011, Nathan reached the century mark and had lost a total of 100 pounds! After a few years of weight plateaus and suffering through arthritis that stemmed from being overweight, Nathan has still managed to lose close to 130 pounds. Recently, he officially joined Weight Watchers to help him lose the rest of his weight. His official goal weight has been set at 167 pounds. You can follow his journey up Mt.
