I bought my first Hidrate in December 2020, less than two months after I received my kidney transplant. It was my second kidney transplant; my first transplant took place in 2011 and lasted almost 8 years before it failed. I had high hopes for my first transplanted kidney, but I made several health-related mistakes. I vowed to take better care of myself this time, including exercising more regularly, eating healthier, and staying hydrated. I wanted this kidney to last and I knew I had to make positive changes in order for that to happen.
I learned about Hidrate in a Facebook group for Black Peloton riders. Everyone raved about the benefits so I decided to purchase one and give it a try. Admittedly, I was skeptical in the beginning; I had no idea how profoundly it would change my relationship with water. The glow reminders helped me to regularly pick up my bottle and take a sip, I appreciated the humorous reminders sent to my phone a few times a day, and I competed with friends to join the 100% club. There was a noticeable change in my behavior, and I was (and still am!) grateful for the Hidrate technology for it.
Since I purchased my first Hidrate bottle, I drink significantly more water on a daily basis which works wonders for my kidney and overall health. My skin glistens, I have better digestion, and I feel so much better about myself. As a kidney transplant recipient, staying hydrated is literally a matter of life and death. Maintaining healthy kidney function is imperative and hydration plays a significant role.
I sing the praises of Hidrate everywhere I go; when people ask me why my water bottle is lighting up, I get my app and watch ready to show them all about it! How fun is it to have a tech gadget that's not only cool technology but also has a direct impact on our physical health? My bottle has been in 16 countries in North America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Wherever I go, the bottle goes with My husband, Matthew, is even more committed than me! He has NEVER missed a day since I bought him his bottle on March 31st 2021. As of today, March 21st 2023, he has a streak of 721 days. Like me, it has been a fantastic addition to his life as well. I've gifted the Hidrate bottle to family and friends and I love grilling them on their water intake. (Yes, mom, I'm talking about you!)
Matthew and I are currently living in Uganda and working at the International School of Uganda. Our "light up water bottles" are so popular with our students and our colleagues. While teaching a 6th-grade class, my bottle glowed and a student said, with a giggle, "Ms.Collins, your water bottle is calling you!" Little did she know just how true that statement was.
