4 Months on Semaglutide for Weight Loss

Let’s talk about my recent weight loss… not the first time I’ve lost and gained (and lost) weight on this channel – but the first time I’ve got the help of a drug to do it. Here’s my experience so far after 4 months taking semaglutide (the compounded version of drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy).

I am a client of Studio R Aesthetics in Charlottesville, Virginia, seeing Dr. Itri for my weight loss care. Their services are available to residents of Virginia. I highly recommend Dr. Itri.
