Tell us about your journey to better health…
I’ve always struggled with my weight, even as a teenager. I was always “thicker” than most of my friends, and it was a struggle to drop pounds any time I tried. I’d exercise and nothing would change, so I would give up and then eat to feel better, falling back into old habits.
One of my biggest stumbling blocks has always been that I absolutely love food! My grandmother used to have her own catering business and she’s taught my family so much about food, so it’s always been a big part of my life. Plus, I just enjoy food! Who doesn’t?!
What motivated you to make a change?
In June of last year I got married, and when I got pictures back from that day from a family friend I was devastated. I cried my eyes out because I hadn’t realized how unhealthy I had become, but it was clear to see in the photos. I was disappointed in myself and knew I had to do better.
At that point, I already knew about 310 Shakes, because I had seen them being talked about all over Facebook about a year earlier – and had tried the variety box which includes single servings of different shake flavors. I remembered that I really liked the taste of the shakes, so when it became apparent that I needed to get healthy, I decided to try 310 again, but much more determined this time.

Once I decided to get serious about a healthier diet and lifestyle – and use 310 Shakes faithfully as part of that new plan – I started to make real weight loss progress for the first time in my life. My starting weight when I began 310 along with improving my habits was 185 lbs. – and now after about 8 months, I’ve lost 37 lbs.! My current weight is 148 lbs. and I have about 18 lbs. left to reach my goal weight of 130 lbs.
Although the journey hasn’t always been easy, I’m literally in awe of the way my body looks and how clothes fit me today! For the longest time, the scale wouldn’t move and I was feeling discouraged. When I looked in the mirror, I couldn’t see my weight loss. But then when I went to buy new pants, (because I thought the old ones had stretched out), I realized that they had become too big and didn’t fit! I went from a size 15 to a size 7 in jeans and didn’t even know it at first! I was SO thrilled!
In general, I also just feel better by eating healthy and drinking 310 Shakes. I have more energy and motivation to conquer cravings than I’ve ever had before. My entire journey with 310 has been a huge learning lesson and personal transformation, and I’m so excited for the rest of the adventure!
What do you love BEST about 310 shakes?
One of the things I love best about 310 Shakes is that they have so many different flavor options to crush every craving! They taste so good and always satisfy my sweet tooth, plus keep me full for longer than sugary foods, without the guilt. The shakes are also super-easy to use and quick to make! This is perfect for keeping up with my new healthy diet on-the-go, without the big progress of having to make a meal.
Tell us about your healthy lifestyle routine…
My current healthy lifestyle routine includes having a 310 Shake for breakfast, then aiming to eat healthy food choices for the rest of the day. I’ve never been a big “breakfast person”, so having the shake is a nice way to get in nutrition, with something that’s also fast and easy. And, it’s super yummy!
I typically have my favorite shake for breakfast, which includes 310 Chocolate Shake powder, almond milk, organic cocoa powder, some cinnamon, and a sugar-free hazelnut syrup. I then have one or two light snacks during the day such as veggie straws and hummus, or a meat stick and pickle. Then, for dinner I have a decent size meal. My favorite is turkey spaghetti with zucchini noodles. Afterwards, I sometimes have popcorn or something small if I feel like eating a snack in the late evening.
Since changing my diet and drinking 310 Shakes, I’ve been able to add exercise into my routine. Though I didn’t have the energy before, eventually I started working out every day or every other day. For about 5 months, I did a 15-minute HIIT workout from YouTube every single day. When I got close to my first weight goal, I didn’t exercise as much, but with the dietary changes I was still losing weight. Now, I work out at least once a week for heart health benefits, and also try to stay active as much as possible in my day-to-day life.
Do you have a MUST-TRY shake recipe you’d like to share?
Another one of my favorite go-to morning shake recipes includes 10 oz. of sugar-free Oregon Chai, 10 oz. of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 scoop of 310 Organic Vanilla, 1 tsp. of cinnamon, and a sugar-free hazelnut syrup. It’s a guilt-free pleasure that totally crushes my sugar cravings!
What does the 310 Community mean to you?
The 310 Community has been a big part of my journey to a healthier lifestyle. Being active in the community always reminds me that I’m not alone in the process. We may not all be on the same path but we’re all on the same journey to our own weight loss goals. It’s beautiful and inspiring!
Do you have advice for anyone just starting their journey?
My advice to anyone just starting out on their own journey is to stay honest with yourself! Go through the motions and accept the more challenging parts, having the mindset to always push through and never give up. Both good days and bad days are normal and part of the process, and even when you stumble, you can get up and start again. Lastly, don’t compare your journey to someone else’s because we’re all different and we’re all beautiful.
