Losing weight and becoming slim and fit has been a goal of mine since high school – one I could never seem to reach. Unfortunately, my life’s path only made things more difficult. Though I love my role as a 911 dispatcher, my coworkers told me when I started that most people end up gaining 10 lbs. for each year in the position! For me, the long periods of endless sitting paired with a fast food addiction caused me to fall in line with this scary statistic.
In April 2016, I started getting severe headaches combined with other symptoms such as blurry vision. The doctors didn’t know the cause, but mentioned that my weight could be a factor. I eventually had a procedure to alleviate the pressure in my brain, stopping the headaches, but the experience was eye-opening. I felt as if I’d been given a second chance at life, and this time around, I wanted to be healthier! At that point, I made a vow to finally follow through with a weight loss initiative that would work for me.
I started with small changes such as removing one piece of bread from my cheeseburger, and then eventually ditching the bread entirely. By making healthier dietary switches, I lost about 30-40 pounds, but it wasn’t an eating plan that I could maintain for the long-term.
While on Facebook, I kept seeing 310 Nutrition pop up, and suddenly everyone was talking about it… Kim Zolciak and Gretchen Rossi from Real Housewives, JWoww and more. It was hard not to be intrigued and curious about the product, and after doing my research, I learned that I could get a starter kit for only $9.00! That sealed the deal.
I received my starter kit in May 2017 and never looked back! After seven months of faithfully drinking 310 shakes, I’ve reached 155 lbs. – making my total weight loss 85 lbs. (down from my heaviest of 240 lbs.)! It’s amazing how much I’ve accomplished, and though I still would like to lose a little more, I’m so grateful to 310 for helping me turn my health dream into a reality.
One of the best parts about the shakes (besides the fact that they taste absolutely delicious!) is how convenient they are. As mentioned, my job requires a ton of sitting and it also requires long shifts, sometimes at inconvenient hours. I can easily make my shakes, bring them to work with me and have a meal in a flash. Goodbye fast food and unhealthy snack machines!
I love making my shakes with unsweetened coconut or cashew milk, 310 shake powder (my favorite flavors are Chocolate and Strawberry) and collagen powder. If I’m replacing dinner and want my shake to be more filling, I add in some chia seeds, flax seed powder and ice and blend it up. It tastes absolutely delightful and keeps me full for hours.
I also love the 310 Tea, 310 Lemonade, 310 Juice, 310 Multi and 310 Probiotics! I even have my products on Autoship to make sure I am never without them! By using all of the products, I have much more energy, along with better digestion and a “happy tummy”.
Plus, the 310 Tea and 310 Lemonade have helped me curb my sweet tooth to the point where I don’t even crave sugar anymore! I used to live on McDonald’s Sweet Tea and now I literally only drink water and 310 drinks, kicking sugar to the curb!
I’m in such a great place with my health at this point that I’m inspiring others to follow in my footsteps. My mom and my grandmother both use 310 shakes now, along with some of my co-workers, for various reasons including weight loss, to help boost daily nutrient intake, and as a post-workout shake. Since they see me every day, my coworkers especially couldn’t believe the transformation that they witnessed from my using 310 products – sometimes, I don’t recognize myself either!
I now eat a healthy, clean diet, replacing 1-2 meals with 310 Shakes per day, and eating low carb and high protein meals and snacks. I no longer eat fast food or sugary foods, and I even cut out caffeine completely because I have so much natural energy without it! Along with my clean diet, I also regularly practice yoga and use the 310 Gym Sliders (an amazing ab workout tool), to supplement my healthy lifestyle.
For anyone looking to lose weight, I would say to be patient with yourself and don’t give up. Small victories are still victories and in the end, it’s a process and you will get there; you just need to be kind to yourself! Also, remind yourself that you are worth the hard work and it is absolutely possible!
