Kelly Clarkson has revealed she has slimmed down by taking a medication — but it’s not Ozempic.

On Monday’s episode of “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” Clarkson, 42, addressed speculation about her weight loss during an interview with guest Whoopi Goldberg. The conversation began with Clarkson complimenting Goldberg on her appearance.

“It’s all the weight I’ve lost. I’ve lost almost two people,” said Goldberg, who has acknowledged taking the drug Mounjaro. “I am doing that wonderful shot that works for folks who need some help, and it’s been really good for me.”

Clarkson shared that she, too, has lost “a lot” of weight, saying, “Mine is a different one than people assume, but I ended up having to do that, too, because my bloodwork got so bad.”

“Everybody thinks it’s Ozempic. It’s not,” she added.

Ozempic, a drug that treats diabetes, is sometimes prescribed off-label for weight loss. It has become highly popular and credited by celebrities for aiding weight loss.

Clarkson did not name the drug she is using, but described it as “something that aids in helping break down the sugar — obviously my body doesn’t do it right.”

“My doctor chased me for, like, two years, and I was like, ‘No, I’m afraid of it. I already have thyroid problems,’” she said.

Clarkson revealed that at her heaviest she weighed 203 pounds and found herself unrecognizable.

She recounted taping a show for her birthday, but when she watched it back at home in New York, she paused it and thought, “Who the f— is that?”

“You see it and you’re like, ‘Well, she’s about to die of a heart attack,’” she added.

“It’s a weird thing. … I never saw that. I was never insecure about it. I was happy. People were like, ‘Oh, she must not have been happy.’ No, I was happy. I just did not see that,” she explained.

Clarkson discussed her surprise with her manager, who has known her for over 15 years. “She was like, ‘I know, I’m kind of as shocked as you.’ And I think because your people are with you the whole time, so it’s gradual. You don’t even realize.”

Kelly Clarkson has previously been open about her health journey. In January, she revealed she was diagnosed as pre-diabetic and told People Magazine that she lost weight by focusing on her diet and being more active.

“I eat a healthy mix. I dropped weight because I’ve been listening to my doctor — a couple years I didn’t. And 90 percent of the time I’m really good at it because a protein diet is good for me anyway. I’m a Texas girl, so I like meat — sorry, vegetarians in the world!” she told the magazine, adding that “walking in the city is quite the workout.”
