Nathan Hewitt, a 15-year-old boy got bullied all the time for his weight of well over 300 pounds. He was considered one of the most obese children in school.
He often binged on junk food and didn’t exercise.
After not being able to fit on a roller coaster, he decided to do something about it. He started a very strict diet and started exercising and began losing drastic weight. He had to have surgery to remove his excess folds of skin.
Now 23, he has now lost over 150 pounds.
He has now received a Government grant to help set himself up as a weight loss coach.
He says: ‘A lot of obese children don’t think they can make the changes they need to lose weight – but I’m there to show them they can’.
He also said, “I know how it feels to be massive – you only have to look at my old photographs to see I was huge. But I can use my experience to encourage other overweight children to slim down”.

He has also said, “My life has changed in so many ways – I’m more confident, healthier, fitter. I really feel like a different person to when I was 15 and over 300 pounds.”
He is now a successful weight loss coach and some of his first clients were the classroom bullies who made his life hell.
