Name: Jeff Nichols
Before Weight: 388 pounds
How I Gained It: My weight gain started from a young age when I was put on steroids to help fight off the asthma that I had as a child. My father passed away in 2005, when I was a senior in high school, which quickly took me from a chubby teen to becoming very overweight. I headed off to college soon after my dad's passing. Three a.m. meals, little to no exercise and living a very sedentary lifestyle were some of the biggest contributors to my weight gain.
