In an interview with the Daily Mail, the 71-year-old celebrity expressed concern about her current weight. “I’m too gaunt, and I can’t put any weight on,” she said. “I want to because I feel I’m too skinny. I’m under 100 lbs., and I don’t want to be. Be careful what you wish for.”

Ozempic, also known as semaglutide or Wegovy, is an FDA-approved medication primarily designed for individuals with Type 2 diabetes. However, its impact on satiety has made it a notable trend in Hollywood for weight loss. Sharon Osbourne revealed that she started using Ozempic in December, and despite being off it for a while, she faced unexpected challenges in maintaining her weight.

While Ozempic has shown success in weight management, Osbourne issued a warning against its use in teenagers, emphasizing the ease with which weight loss can occur, potentially leading to addiction. “You can lose so much weight, and it’s easy to become addicted to that, which is very dangerous,” the television personality disclosed about her own experience. “I couldn’t stop losing weight, and now I’ve lost 42 lbs., and I can’t afford to lose any more.”

Despite criticism about her appearance, Osbourne remains resolute, emphasizing that she has invested significantly in her appearance. “I don’t care what people say about the way I look,” she stated. “I know I look gaunt, and I know everything that goes along with it. And I did it.”

Osbourne’s candid disclosure sheds light on the complexities and potential risks associated with Ozempic, prompting a conversation about the necessity of caution, particularly in its use by specific demographics.

As the medication continues to gain popularity in weight loss circles, Osbourne’s experience serves as a reminder that, like any medical intervention, it requires careful consideration and adherence to prescribed guidelines to ensure both effectiveness and safety.
