Tell us about your journey to better health…
My weight has yo-yo’d ever since I was 21 and became pregnant. But, it continued to increase over the last couple of years, and I reached my highest weight late last year.
One of the reasons that it’s been hard for me to lose weight is that I suffer from hypothyroidism and several other auto-immune diseases. Because of this, It's very hard for me to exercise. At one time I was even applying for disability because I just couldn't do much.
What motivated you to make a change?
My husband took a picture of me on our anniversary and I was totally angry at myself at what I had let happen to my body.
Then, in March of this year, I almost lost my husband. He actually died on the table and they brought him back. I decided that day that I was going to be better for both of us. I started walking a little each day, and now I’m walking between 3-5 miles every day.
I found out about 310 after seeing ads on Facebook, and the sample pack made it a no commitment buy. I knew I needed to be healthier, and 310 helped make it possible for me. Along with pushing myself to exercise when I can, the 310 Community has provided the accountability I need, along with the knowledge of how to clean up my diet.
All around, 310 has helped me gain confidence in myself and has become a wonderful tool to help me stay on track. It has helped change my relationship with food!

I’ve now been using 310 products and aiming to live a healthier lifestyle for about 8 months. At first, my biggest struggle was overcoming the urge to view myself as a victim of my diseases, because I’m not. I had to stop making excuses for everything and start taking charge of my life again.
When I started using 310 products, I was 224 lbs. – and today I am 164.2 lbs. – so I’ve been able to lose almost 60 lbs. – and it feels incredible. I’m also only about 10 lbs. away from my ultimate goal weight of 155 lbs.
It’s amazing when I look back at photos of myself from this time last year, and see how much has changed in how I look and also how much better I feel. What a difference a year makes! It has not all been easy, but it’s been worth it!
What do you love BEST about 310 Shakes and other products?
I love that the shakes are so versatile! I can add any fruit or vegetable to my smoothies and they will taste delicious because the shake flavors are so yummy.
I also use the 310 Peanut Butter Powder in my shakes. I like that it adds a healthy fat without all the extra additives, calories and ingredients you get when using regular nut butters.
Lately, another product I’m loving is the new Ginger Cayenne Lemonade. I add it to my fruit smoothie or to my 310 Peach Tea and fill up the large shaker cup with water. It’s so good!
Tell us about your healthy lifestyle routine…
As mentioned, I try to stay active even though it’s hard for me and try to walk between 3-5 miles every day.
As for my diet, I typically have a meal replacement shake for breakfast and then another one for lunch, that are around 300 calories each. I snack on fruit, nuts, and veggies.
For dinner, I typically have a protein, one or two veggies or a salad, and a starch.
Do you have a MUST-TRY shake recipe you’d like to share?
My favorite shake recipe is called Chocolate-Covered Cherries and it’s SO good!
- 310 Organic Chocolate
- 1 tbs unsweetened cocoa
- 1 cup frozen dark cherries
- 1 tsp espresso powder
- 8-12 oz of liquid (I typically use water)
- 2 tbs coconut whipped cream
Mix it all up in a blender and enjoy!
What does the 310 Community mean to you?
I absolutely love the support, knowledge, love, and understanding that I find in the 310 Community! It helps me feel less lonely because I know that someone else is going through the same thing.
Do you have advice for anyone just starting their journey?
Give yourself grace. Take it one day at a time and don't discount your journey based on someone else's. Remember that it took a while to get where you are today, so change won’t happen overnight, but it absolutely can happen.
