As far as I know, this cannot be done using NonlinearModelFit.
NonlinearModelFit seems to be designed to do non-linear
regression with the usual assumptions. This is an unconstrained
optimization problem. Once you impose a constraint on any
parameter, the problem becomes a constrained optimization
problem. See:

tutorial/UnconstrainedOptimizationOverview
tutorial/ConstrainedOptimizationOverview

=46indFit or NMimimize can be used to find the best fit parameters
with constraints. Look at the second entry in the online
documentation for FindFit for syntax details.
