Dear Diary & Videos

  • Natalie Bonkowski

The Start of my Facebook Page

As much as I like to keep my personal life, well...personal...I feel as if I have to share my health and wellness journey. If I can help just one person, it will all be worth it. This page will be dedicated to that as well as motivation for dreams and goals in this mean 'ol world.

In a nutshell, I gained weight my whole life (since 2nd grade). Went on every diet out there, lost and gained. Did major transformations, was even in a bikini and dark tan on stage once, but never found happiness with my body.

Finally, at 38, I decided I would never again lose weight again until I could keep it off. That was 5 years ago. After Health Coaching school, studying habit change, and finally loving me as me, I was able to do what I have always failed at. I stopped binge eating and finally found control and balance with food.

In 2017, I lost 25# and got my blood work in perfect order (I was previously pre-diabetic). In 2018, I am going to lose 20# and in 2019, I'll lose another 20#. I have found balance and baby steps and finally feel fantastic!

Check back as I share my story and the tips and tricks that changed my life.

About Me

After 20 years of dieting, frustration, self-confidence and body image issues, I found myself as a contestant in a transformation contest. I stepped on stage in a bikini and dark tan and won 5th place. Walked off stage, started eating, and gained 50 pounds in a year. I felt so defeated, lost, miserable, and out of control.

"Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

A Health Coach or Life Coach is a tool to help you realize your goals, support you, and help you create habit change. We are not doctors or nutritionists. We cannot provide professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. The information you receive from me is based on my personal experiences, studies of others, and training received from health coach and life coach school. Always consult with your doctor before making changes to your health and wellness plan.
