Life After Fat (2013)
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Country: USA
TV show
Story: Life After Fat is a comedy-drama web series filmed in New York City, focusing on Maddie, a 24 year old thrift store employee who loses 90 lbs over the course of a year. For the first time in her life, she feels noticed, and attractive, which ends up being far more complicated than she thought. But the more things fall apart, the closer she is to finding her true self worth. Life After Fat isn't about how inspiring it is to drop a lot of weight, nor is it a message for everyone to love themselves exactly as they are. Instead, it's an exploration of the changes we make and why we make them, as much as it is a statement on the oftentimes laughable madness that is being a severely confused 20-something living in a massive city.
