TikTok star Remi Bader recently shared her inspiring fitness transformation journey after quitting the weight-loss drug Ozempic.

On May 21, the content creator and body positive model posted a video on Instagram of the transformation she’s made in the gym.

In the “before” clip, the 29-year-old is struggling to do a core exercise before shaking her head and giving up. The “after” clip then shows her successfully completing the same workout.

In one of the before-and-after shots, Remi was seen struggling to do pull-ups on a gym machine at the beginning of her journey.

After Quitting Ozempic: Effortlessly Completing Pull-Ups

In a second clip, Remi effortlessly completed a handful of pull-ups before jumping down from the machine and walking off proudly.

It's Not Just About Weight or Looks Remi emphasized that her transformation was not about weight, looks, or appearance. Instead, she focused on her mental, emotional, and physical strength. She encouraged others to put themselves first and find their own well-being.

“People come and go so remember you only have YOU at the end of the day, thank you to those always supporting me through my darkest and brightest moments,” she added in the caption.

Remi had initially used Ozempic, a drug prescribed for type 2 diabetes, to lose weight. However, she experienced negative effects on her overall health and eventually stopped using it.

After quitting Ozempic, she faced challenges with binge eating and gained back the weight she had lost.

Important Note:

Ozempic is primarily approved for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in adults and is not sanctioned for weight management purposes. However, the active ingredient in Ozempic, Semaglutide, is FDA-approved at higher doses for treating obesity and weight-related medical issues under the brand name Wegovy.

Remi’s journey serves as a reminder to prioritize overall well-being and self-care. Bader has come a long way in her overall health journey. In September 2023, the influencer revealed in a candid TikTok video that she was struggling with binge eating. She explained that she had a very emotional day, so she “answered that with eating, eating, eating, eating.”

Remember, it’s essential to focus on holistic health rather than just numbers on a scale. Kudos to Remi for sharing her story and inspiring others.
