As a writer for Yahoo Life, I’m always paying attention to the conversations people are having about weight loss, diet culture and health. Recently, however, many of those conversations are focused on one thing: the use of GLP-1 medications like Ozempic, Wegovy and Mounjaro, which many people use to treat diabetes but have also become popular for those looking to lose or maintain weight. It’s clear from the comments on our many articles about the topic that Yahoo readers have opinions on these drugs and their place in society — whether they’ve taken them personally or not. We’re opening up this space for conversation: Tell us your feelings on these weight loss drugs either in the comments section below, by email at heylifeeditors@yahooinc.com or through this Google Form. Your thoughts may be featured in an upcoming story.
