I Lost 255 Pounds

Peggy Rezac's Real Life Weight Loss Success Story

"I lost 2 pounds the very first day! By the end of the first month I had lost about 30 pounds and knew that I was onto something."

Note: Most Medifast users have reported losing one to two pounds on average per week. Please be aware that results may vary depending on the individual and other factors.

Peggy Rezac Before Picture

Five years ago, my health went on a serious decline. I was unable to walk more than 50 feet at a time without collapsing or losing my breath. Climbing stairs and even stepping up onto a curb was beyond my ability. I suffered from high blood pressure, vascular insufficiency, sleep apnea and although there were more problems, I never sought medical intervention. Why bother? It was my fault because I was fat!

I had no personal life outside of being at home with my husband and children and occasionally talking with my mother by phone. I never went anywhere or did anything except go to work. I was too embarrassed and ashamed of what I had become to face the public. I was somewhat paranoid and sure that everyone everywhere was laughing at me. Some people did laugh and many looked at me with disgust Ė I folded within myself and did not want to face the world.

In the spring of 2006, my father-in-law died of health complications directly related to obesity. That was my wake up call. I knew that would be me in 20 years if I didnít do something about my weight. I didnít want my husband to deal with losing both his father and wife to obesity. I became scared and determined to make a difference in my life from that day on. Work was the only activity I participated in and even that was getting more and more difficult to do.

Peggy Rezac After Picture

I have wanted to lose weight for over 20 years and over that time have had varying degrees of success. After becoming obese, I tried so many different diets. Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, the list goes on. I was always very successful in the beginning but as the weight loss slowed to about Ĺ-1lb per week it became discouraging. Soon, I was back to my old habits of eating to soothe myself out of frustration. While I always attempted to add exercise to my plan, I had difficulty sticking with it. I really needed a plan that I could safely see results more quickly. When you have over 200 pounds to lose, Ĺ - 1 pound per week is daunting. That would take over 2 years of commitment and until I tried Medifast, the best I could manage was 6 months.

After my father-in-laws death, I began researching life after bariatric surgery. During my research I came across Medifast. Several people who have websites available to discuss their weight loss journeys stated they were using Medifast. At first, I was intimidated by the calorie level and quantity of food for a ďmealĒ and couldnít figure out how on earth Iíd be able to manage on 800-1000 calories per day, but I figured it they could do it, so could I.

My biggest challenge with trying to lose weight has been staying motivated through the long haul that most diets require without satisfying results. That was not the case with Medifast. I saw results immediately! I lost 2 pounds the very first day! By the end of the first month I had lost about 30 pounds and knew that I was onto something.

I began Medifast July 2006, depressed, unhealthy and weighing 390 pounds. To date, I have lost 255 pounds and have reached my goal weight of 135 pounds. My family and friends have been so supportive and celobrate each time I weigh-in. I feel 100,000% time better than I ever have in my whole life. My blood pressure is down and I have my mobility back. I now run 5-6 miles 2-3 times per week and walk at least 3 miles the other days. On the weekends, my husband and I go hiking together which I really enjoy!

I am truly happy for the first time in my adult life. I have battled depression for so long I donít remember when I wasnít unhappy. That is, until now. I now understand what it feels like to be ďnormalĒ. Itís wonderful!

I can truly say that Medifast gave me my life back. 15 months ago I had no life and sometimes wished it would just end. I am completely sold on the quality of Medifast products, the support from the Medifast team, and how well the Medifast community is able to connect with each other through the website. I have had nothing but great experiences with the company. I love the convenience of Medifast prepackaged meals, the ease of preparation, how simple the plan is to follow, how well I can use it traveling for work how fast the results are, and how good I feel using it.

Having a plan that allows me to lose weight at a steady weight while remaining safe is the #1 reason I love Medifast so much. Although the food tastes great and there is enough variety, itís really about how good I feel on the plan and how quickly Iíve been able to change my life.

Thanks Medifast!
