Nicolle Gonnella Lost 75 Pounds*
Ask Nicolle About The Journey!
My journey with 310 started after hitting a plateau in my own efforts to drop pounds by eating healthier and exercising. What had been working for three months and had enabled me to lose 60 pounds suddenly was not maintainable for the long-term. I was in desperate need of a solution to ensure that I didn’t fall backwards and lose all of my success, and then I came across 310.
But let me start at the very beginning because I believe my unique story can help inspire others who have dealt with similar struggles. My rapid weight gain started when my psychiatrist put me on a combination of two different medications, causing me to gain an astonishing 70 pounds in only 4 months. I had stretch marks all over my body from the rapid weight gain but my doctor refused to take me off both medications, stressing that my mental health was more important. He left me on just one of the medications and tried to dissuade me from losing weight, saying that it would be near impossible while on that treatment plan.
Nevertheless, I pursued my goal of becoming physically healthier, being driven by sheer determination to both prove my doctor wrong and better myself at the same time. I’m extremely proud of what I was able to accomplish all by myself, but eventually my motivation tank ran dry and I needed more substantial fuel.
I came across 310 on Facebook around the time that I hit my weight loss plateau. When I saw that I could eat less calories and still get full by drinking a shake, I ordered the Premium Starter Kit and immediately fell in love with the 310 Salted Caramel Shake! When that was finished, I ordered more flavors and thus began my new 310 lifestyle.
One of the biggest draws about 310 Shake for me is that each shake serving is so low in calories. Previous to using 310, I had been counting calories but now I can enjoy a delicious, tasty drink with only 90 calories per serving, making mealtime so much less complicated. I also love the clean eating aspect of these shakes – the plant-based proteins, natural ingredients and plethora of vitamins and minerals completely won me over.
I also knew I needed something quick and convenient that I could stick with and blending a shake twice a day was just that. My current routine includes having a 310 Shake for breakfast and another one for lunch – and my favorite flavor is the Salted Caramel mixed with pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. I also have two healthy snacks and a healthy dinner which I meal prep every Sunday.
Since using 310 for only a few short months, I’ve lost another 15 lbs. and I feel absolutely amazing – making my total weight loss so far 75 lbs. (even more than I had gained)! And the most important thing is I now have a tool to help me continue to become healthier and maintain my new weight for the long-term – ensuring I don’t slip backwards.
My goal right now is to get down to 140 lbs., so lose another 15 lbs. – and I know that I will reach it! The 310 products work; they are easy to use, healthy and they taste great. And the cherry on top is definitely the 310 Facebook Community. I love being a part of it every single day and it gives me the motivation I need along with great insight to stay on track.
Since using 310, I’ve been able to get back to exercising since I now have the energy. I also feel more motivated and alive, and I’m not depressed like I have been in the past. I can honestly say that I finally feel beautiful and I’m even taking care of myself and getting my nails and makeup done, which are things I’ve never done before.
I’m so incredibly happy with 310 and would recommend this program to anyone looking to slim down while eating clean at the same time. It feels amazing to know that I can now be in control of my own destiny, and can be healthy in my mind, body and spirit without having to neglect one to take care of the other. Thank you, 310, for giving me a lifelong solution to healthy, happy living!
