Oprah Winfrey talks about Ozempic and other medications for weight loss.
While hosting her Oprah Daily’s “The Life You Want Class: The State of Weight,” the mogul said she was “ready for this conversation.”
“You all know I’ve been on this journey for most of my life,” Winfrey added.

The talk went to type 2 diabetes prescriptions Ozempic and Mounjaro, likewise recommended for weight reduction.
After a group of people said she had shed 100 pounds with the assistance of Ozempic and that it had supported her “outlook” when it came to food, Winfrey held onto that.
“One of the things that I’ve been so ashamed, shamed myself about and was shamed in the tabloids every week for about 25 years is not having the willpower,” said Winfrey, a board member and stock owner with Weight Watchers.
“I think that there is a distinction between mindset which we are now hearing, the brain tells you a certain thing about how you process food versus willpower.”
The subject of disgrace was common in the conversation among the board of well-being experts – both humiliation about being overweight and individuals who have been disgraced for utilizing weight reduction medication.
“Shouldn’t we be more tolerant of anything that body you decide to be ready? That ought to be your decision,” Winfrey said. “In any event, when I initially began finding out about the weight reduction drugs, simultaneously I was going through knee medical procedure, and I felt, ‘I must do this all alone.’ Since, supposing that I take the medication, that is the path of least resistance.'”
