But all that did not come easy! When Nathalia moved to the U.S. in the end of 2004, she got caught up on a sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle, and with that the number on the scale started to go up. In the end of 2009 Nathalia decided to change that reality and challenge herself signing up for her first IFBB Bikini competition and with a lot of determination and discipline she not only won her class, but also took the overall trophy home.
