I know, I know… this is not generally a topic we would cover here, but Ozempic is one of the hottest topics in the country, so we are going to report on it.
A lot of people have noticed the big weight change in Oprah as of late, and it was not due to some fancy diet.
Oprah, like many others, was using medication to lose weight.
The Hard Truth
Oprah did not give up the tapes on what medication she used, but Ozempic and drugs of the like are being prescribed for weight loss right now.
Oprah got tired of the denials, so she came clean, stating, “I now use it as I feel I need it, as a tool to manage not yo-yoing.
“The fact that there’s a medically approved prescription for managing weight and staying healthier, in my lifetime, feels like relief, like redemption, like a gift, and not something to hide behind and once again be ridiculed for.”
She later added, “I’m absolutely done with the shaming from other people and particularly myself.”
Oprah continued to tout the new Oprah, saying that this “was a second shot for me to live a more vital and vibrant lifestyle.”
When asked if it was just the medication, or if there were other aspects, such as nutrition and a fitness program, she stated, “It’s everything. I know everybody thought I was on it, but I worked so damn hard.
“I know that if I’m not also working out and vigilant about all the other things, it doesn’t work for me.”
I would have to agree with her on that.
Now recovering from my third spinal fusion, there is no supplement or weight loss drug that will do the trick alone. You have to be willing to put in the workouts and eat the right food or you are just wasting your money on supplements and medication.
It’s a process, and you have to go into it with the mindset that it will hurt at first and it will be tough, but there is eventually a reward at the end of all that hard work when that scale starts to move back in time for you.
And now, back to our regularly scheduled political commentary…
