Ozempic, the once-weekly injectable formulation of Semaglutide, has not been approved for the treatment of obesity or weight loss. However, obese diabetic patients have noticed dramatic weight loss results with it.
Obese people are displaying their “before and after pictures” on social media using once-weekly Ozempic injections as they reveal their inspiring weight loss journey.
In clinical trials, Ozempic has been observed to be associated with a weight loss of 13 lbs over 26 weeks [Ref]
Ozempic in real-life patients has been observed to cause a weight loss of about 17 lbs over a period of just about 9 weeks.
Ozempic Weight Loss Before and After Pictures and Reviews:
There have been numerous before and after weight loss pictures of people and influencers around the web. Very few people have posted pics of their weight loss journey using Ozempic.
Three pics I found on social media are posted here [Ref]. It is important to note that all three people were using Ozempic.
In addition, they also did cardio and other forms of workouts like walking and workouts at the Gym. Plus, they reduced their daily intake of carbohydrates and burned more calories than they consumed.
Ozempic weight loss before and after pictures of a female who lost 43 lbs of body weight:
This female lost weight from 215 to 180 pounds. Weight became a little static but adding Adipex (Phentermine) resulted in 8 pounds of weight loss. She is now 172 pounds but hopeful to achieve a target weight of 140 pounds.
Here are a few things she found helpful in addition to using Injection Ozempic:
- Cut out POP and fast food
- Regular one hour of Cardio exercise
- Going up to the workplace using stairs instead of the elevator
Regarding Ozempic, she administered 0.25 mg for four weeks and 0.5 mg afterward for a couple of months. However, with time, she thought her body got used to it and she did not lose enough weight, rather her weight was static.
She then increased her dose to 0.75 mg for four weeks, a few injections of 1 mg, and then got back to 0.5 mg per week.
Ozempic weight loss before and after pictures of a person who lost 90 lbs:
This is a picture of another person using Ozempic. Although, he claims to have lost 90 lbs, however, the weight loss he claims is not obvious in the pictures.
Maybe because of the smile in the picture, his cheeks have popped out, but literally, I don’t see any weight loss, especially, 90 lbs.
He might have lost 9 lbs instead of 90 lbs (and added one zero by mistake). The viewers are the best judges but I can see a slight weight loss when I look at it with the eye of faith.
In addition, he states that clean eating, avoiding fast food, and lots of hours in the gym helped him achieve so much weight loss. He is still continuing to lose weight. Let’s see if he loses more weight and post new pictures after Ozempic use.

She is a busy student and has maintained weight loss over the last three months without the feeling of being deprived.
She is feeling too good with her new size and proud of herself. Her leggings size changed from 8 or 10 to size 4.
Her waist reduced from 33 to 28. For the first time, she bought herself a small-size top that she used to wear when she was in middle school. She enjoys shopping for her new size and is not more scared.
She has to reduce her basal insulin dose from 100 units to 40 units to avoid hypoglycemia. Although she takes a small portion of juice in the morning to avoid hypoglycemia, she calculates her calories and tries to burn more than she takes.
Her current average daily intake of calories is around 1200 Kcal but she has to adjust it on a daily basis. She takes 1100 calories on lazy days to 1500 calories on super active days.
She keeps a track of her calories with a fitness watch and burns around 1600 calories per day without exercise.
Her physical activities routine includes long walks (with her parents’ dog), frequent short walks, and cardio classes. She goes for a workout a few times a week.
