Many fans empathize with Clarkson, understanding the sensitive nature of such inquiries into her personal health choices.

Kelly Clarkson Clarifies Ozempic Was Not How She Lost Drastic Weight!

In a recent episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the A-list celebrity singer and host Kelly Clarkson discussed her weight loss journey with special guest Whoopi Goldberg. During the show, Clarkson revealed that her bloodwork showed alarming levels that required medication to help her body break down excess sugar, ultimately resulting in her remarkable transformation.

However, contrary to speculation, it wasn’t Ozempic as many had assumed. She clarified that her weight loss journey involved a different medication. She revealed,

“Everybody thinks it’s Ozempic, it’s not, it’s something else. But it’s something that aids in helping break down the sugar, obviously my body doesn’t do it right… I didn’t see it [before I lost weight]… I was never insecure about it, I was happy… I just did not see that… People assume, ‘She must’ve been miserable or depressed or whatever.’ I was not.”

Additionally, the singer disclosed that she also suffers from thyroid problems. Clarkson shared that at her heaviest, she weighed 203 pounds and felt unrecognizable to herself. While she never felt unhappiness about her weight or appearance, the weight loss journey was driven by concern, as her weight had reached a point that could potentially lead to serious health issues for the singer. She previously opened up about her diet in an interview with People magazine, stating,

“I eat a healthy mix. I dropped weight because I’ve been listening to my doctor — a couple years I didn’t. And 90 percent of the time I’m really good at it because a protein diet is good for me anyway. I’m a Texas girl, so I like meat — sorry, vegetarians in the world!”

Now that she is back on a healthy path, she feels comfortable sharing her weight loss journey and emphasizing the importance of prioritizing health over looks.

Fans Empathize with Kelly Clarkson for Sharing Her Weight Loss Journey

It’s both strange and heart-wrenching to discover that those in the public eye feel compelled to open up about such private and personal matters to the world. This trend began after Oprah Winfrey hinted at using Ozempic without explicitly naming the drug.

Since then, numerous celebrities have admitted to using it off-label. Weight has always been a sensitive topic, and now fans are expressing concerns about the impact of weight loss drugs on both physical health and body image. However many seemed to empathise with Clarkson as she shared her side of the story.

Regardless of whether individuals rely on medication or not, nobody should be subjected to ridicule for their body. Unrealistic expectations regarding body image and maintenance have detrimental effects, both physically and mentally.
