About Me

Hey there! My name is Daniel Flatt. I’m a 39 year old father of two that is happily married to the love of my life. I’m a gamer who plays every system, an anime fan, martial artist, avid reader, writer, and consumer of most things that can be defined as geeky. All of these things combine like a super geeky Voltron to make me who I am.

You might know me better as MailOrderNinja from TikTok–I went viral in January 2021 vowing that I would finally lose the weight. I never would even take a shirt off at my Mom’s house while swimming with immediate family, and somehow millions of people saw me take my shirt off in a desparate attempt at accountability. 75,000 plus followers might not seem like a lot for some people, but for this guy it was a shock for sure. Little did I know that TikTok was just the beginning of what would be the most successful weight loss of my life. It seems like such a short time ago, but I’m now down over 100 pounds, and I’m not done yet!

I had originally started a blog called Home Button after my father passed when I realized I couldn’t wait anymore to do the things I loved and I used it to share my love of gaming. As a person who loves to write it was suggested to me that another blog could help motivate me to lose weight which prompted the original Epic Drop blog that was just about fitness.

So here you are at the culmination of these two passions once I realized that they don’t have to remain separate. You can read more about the site here, but suffice it to say I’m glad you are here.

I’ve become tired of letting my obesity control and define my life, so I set out on a journey to reduce my weight by nearly 200 lbs. This won’t happen over night, I’m going to need your help, and maybe some of my writing could help someone out there as well.If you want to get to know me a little better on the gaming front below are links to a collection of articles that will give you a very good idea of who I am in that regard.Won’t you join me on my weight loss journey?
