Sharon Osbourne has stated that despite her best attempts, she is unable to regain her weight after undergoing Ozempic.
The former X Factor judge and wife of rocker Ozzy Osbourne has been frank about her recent weight reduction.
She has acknowledged to using Ozempic, a medicine intended to treat type 2 diabetes but that some individuals have been using to lose weight.
Sharon stated earlier this week that she ‘didn’t want to become this thin,’ and she is now battling to regain the 30 pounds she has dropped.
She spoke openly on Talk TV this week about having a gastric band, a gastric sleeve, and using diet pills after suffering with her weight in the past.
‘There isn’t one [I haven’t tried],’ she shared.
‘My entire life and I’m seventy, I have fought weight, my entire life.
‘It’s affected my life to such a point. I had the gastric band, and had that removed, because it didn’t work after a while. I then had the sleeve and you can’t reverse the sleeve because they cut your stomach in half… it is what it is. You are stuck with that.’
Sharon then continued: ‘After a while, it’s all up here [in your mind]. It’s all mental.’
She went on to say that taking Ozempic produced an unanticipated negative effect.
‘Now it’s got a reverse effect on me personally, I don’t know for everybody, I’m sure not. But I can’t put on weight now, no matter whatever I eat,’ she explained.
‘I’m stuck at this weight. And it’s like, my entire life I’ve wanted to be a certain weight, never got there, and now I have and it doesn’t suit me and I don’t like it and I can’t change it.’
She concluded: ‘The thing about weight it’s a personal thing… for me it caused depression.’
While Ozempic is solely intended for diabetics, there is now a scarcity due to others attempting to obtain a supply.
Sharon, on the other hand, has previously stated that she does not want her usage of it to be a “dirty little secret.”
She also argued that using Ozempic to lose weight was not ‘cheating’ and that people should ‘lighten up’ about the drug’s use.
