Ozempic is only done 1 time per week if someone is using it for MOVE, also. The liraglutide effect on an obese person is more pronounced than it is on a non-obese person. It affects the 'hunger' urge that is hormonally greater in obese people. The extra fat in many obese people becomes its own organ, and it constantly prompts the release of hormones to promote hunger for self-preservation. This is why most people that have surgical intervention are not lazy. At some point, they reach an equilibrium where their body is lying to them about hunger, and it also messes with their metabolism to fight to keep from being reduced. Even with willpower, they reach a point where their body may not release the fat stores no matter how much they work out and/or monitor their diet. Ozempic and similar tries to disrupt that cycle by counteracting the exaggerated hunger urge.

My doc (non VA) put me on Ozempic and it instantly crashed my blood sugar.  I am on Bydureon that seems to work well.
