Oprah Winfrey confirmed the speculation that she’s taking a weight-loss drug akin to Ozempic in an interview with People published Wednesday (December 13th).
'”I now use it as I feel I need it, as a tool to manage not yo-yoing,” Winfrey told the outlet. She did not reveal which medication she uses.
“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,” The Color Purple actor added. “I’m absolutely done with the shaming from other people and particularly myself.”
