Ruth Marcus: I Lost 40 Pounds on Ozempic But I’m Left With More Questions

From a Washington Post essay by Ruth Marcus headlined “I lost 40 pounds on Ozempic. But I’m left with even more questions.”:

“Well, if I gave it to you, you’d be the thinnest person I’ve ever prescribed it for.”

Thinnest was not a word I was accustomed to hearing in a sentence about me. I wasn’t fat, exactly, but I was awfully close — at 5 feet and 152 pounds, my body mass index was 29.7, just shy of the 30 that is considered obese.
