The Turning Point...
Ever since I was a little girl, I had struggled with weight. When I was in parochial school, I was teased and bullied tremendously, which led to me going to food for comfort.
Once I started high school, I tried dieting and it would work up to a point, but I always went back to food for comfort. At least the bullying stopped in high school and I felt a bit better about myself. Since then, I feel like I have tried everything under the sun to lose weight. You name it, I tried it. Some things were successful, but no matter what, I kept going back to my old habits. It didn’t help that I was also battling severe depression, anxiety, and stress due to several occurrences in my life over the years, which always brought me to food for comfort. I guess it helped me push away all the aching I was trying so desperately to hide.
Until May 23, 2019…
I saw several ads about 310 that day. I was skeptical because I had tried several different protein drinks already, but I kept drawing myself back to reading more and more about it, and something just made me want to take that leap. I was so disgusted with how I looked that I just thought, what harm could it do to me? I was at my highest weight ever, at 265 pounds, and all I could think was “what am I doing to myself?” My ah-ha moment really came when I realized that I could not see my life continuing the way it was. I was extremely lucky that I didn’t have diabetes, high blood pressure, or any major health issues to be concerned about (yet), but I thought, I could make big health changes starting in a week!
I placed my first order of the sample kit, which was on sale at the time, and within a couple of days I heard about the 310 Facebook Community page. As soon as I joined, I could see all the love and positivity that I needed to help guide me, and I felt my life was about to change forever. Of course I have all the support in the world from my family and friends, but it means something more when the journey is shared with people who are in the same place as you are.
Since day 1 of drinking the 310 shakes, my life has changed tremendously. 310 has done more than just given me great shakes to drink. It has helped me take control of my life for the first time ever. I have never worked harder to be a better me. I also take the time for myself, putting myself first, which is hard, but, I realize I have to be the most important person to myself in order to take care of everyone else.
When I started on 310, I was 265 pounds. With the help of 310, I changed my eating habits drastically...
I made the decision to stop eating pasta, rice, bread, potatoes, and sweets. I eat as little processed sugar as possible, and try to stay under 100g carbs per day. I have two 310 shakes per day, one for breakfast and one for lunch, and a clean dinner, with healthy snacks in between.
I make sure I don’t eat more than 1200 calories a day.. And I do a 30-minute workout every morning at home, and am lucky to have an employee gym, so I get a mile of brisk walking on a treadmill during my dinner break as I work evenings. As of today, I have lost 88.6 pounds, bringing me to 176.4. I have just over 11 pounds until my goal weight. I will decide then it I’m done or want to go a little further. I will let my body decide. This has been an absolutely wonderful journey for not only my body, but for my mind and soul as well. And I have 310 products, staff, and community to thank for it, with special thanks to Tim, Sierra, Annie, Jabar, and Maria. #310forlife!
Getting into a size 12 jeans, being able to cross my legs, getting a towel around me and fully closed are just some of the many victories I have experienced.
I feel so much better about myself. I have more confidence that I will succeed, and continue on this journey.
Here’s how I got healthy with 310 Nutrition and keep it going to this day:
I have a 310 Meal Replacement Shake for breakfast (Either Strawberry, Toasted Coconut, or Vanilla flavored), with 8 oz. unsweetened cashew milk, 1/2 frozen banana, 1/2 cup frozen fruit, 1 scoop 310 Collagen, and 1 scoop 310 Juice Berry. Sometimes I even have 2 tbsp of 310 Peanut Butter Powder instead of fruit!
For lunch, it’s always the same. 8 oz. cold coffee, 8 oz, unsweetened cashew milk, 1/4 frozen avocado, 1 scoop 310 Collagen, 1/2 scoop 310 Mocha Shake and 1/2 scoop of 310 Salted Caramel Shake. My snacks are a small apple, and I love Emerald single serve packets of all different kinds of nuts. My favorite are the sriracha cashews. Other than the shakes, the other 310 products I use daily are the 310 Collagen to help my joints, bones, and skin, 310 Juice to get 70 superfoods in my belly each day, all the 310 Detox Tea, 310 Peanut Butter Powder which has way less calories, fat, and salt than regular peanut butter, and the Peach 310 Lemonade to help me keep full and have energy in between meals as a sweet treat.
The shakes taste amazing, are so filling and satisfying, and there are so many flavors to choose from. Having them as a meal replacement is perfect. They definitely keep me in check with my daily calorie goals. I was never a hot tea drinker, but the 310 Detox Teas are delicious, and taste just as great cold. Plus they are naturally sweet so I don’t even need to add sugar and they help me de-bloat. The peach lemonade is delicious and helps me get enough water down. The PB powder is more delicious than the regular peanut butter. I will never go back. The collagen works! My skin is so much better, aches gone, and my hair and nails are thicker and stronger.
Here’s my favorite new shake recipes you gotta try!
Salted Caramel Mochachino
My favorite is my lunch shake. 1/2 scoop 310 Mocha Shake, 1/2 scoop 310 Salted Caramel Shake, 8 oz. cold coffee, 8 oz. unsweetened cashew milk, 1/4 frozen avocado, and 1 scoop 310 Collagen.
