Jamie-Lynn Sigler says 'it's upsetting' her to see friends who are in good physical shape 'abusing' Ozempic … after past battles with eating disorder SuperNayr

Jamie-Lynn Sigler said Tuesday that she’s put off seeing people in good shape abuse the medication Ozempic.

The Sopranos alum, 42, said she was ‘a little triggered’ by the topic, on the latest edition of her MeSsy podcast Tuesday, titled ‘Body Talk’ with co-host Christina Applegate, 52.

‘I’m annoyed at myself that I’m admitting this – it’s upsetting me. I wish I didn’t care,’ said Sigler, who played the role of Meadow Soprano on the groundbreaking HBO hit.

Sigler said she feels the popular medication has been effective, as she’s witnessed people who struggled ‘with their weight for a very, very, very long time’ shed pounds.

‘I’ve seen it give them a lot and I am so happy for them,’ Sigler said, noting that other people who she’s seen benefit from the medication were not people who she felt needed it in the first place.

‘I have also seen friends of mine, who were beautiful and healthy and perfect, abusing it, and it’s upsetting me,’ Sigler said.

Sigler has past been open about her own battles with body image and eating disorders, and has past served as a National Eating Disorders Association spokesperson.

In 2015, Sigler revealed that HBO execs ‘asked [her] to put on weight’ as she was in the throes of an eating disorder.

‘They were concerned for my health, and they didn’t feel like I was the picture of a girl that lived in an Italian household and ate pasta all the time,’ she said. ‘So they were big catalysts in me taking a step back and realizing the issue.’

Sigler on Tuesday said that the popularity of the medication, and its resultant effects, have been a hinderance to society moving forward with a body positive mindset.

‘It felt like we were on this road to solidifying body positivity, and every shape and size and color, and everyone’s looking the same now,’ Sigler said.

Applegate said she felt that the popularity of the medication has resulted in people looking like they are ‘fading away.’

She added, ‘For women out there listening, the thinner your face is, the older you look, okay? Not that looking old is bad – aging gracefully is beautiful.’

Applegate said on Tuesday’s podcast that she doesn’t ‘look in mirrors’ amid body changes that she’s dealt with three years after she was diagnosed with MS.

‘I have writing all over my mirrors in my bathroom so that I don’t look in them,’ Applegate said. ‘Because I will like fall on the ground and cry. That’s how I feel now.’

She said that she dealt with anorexia decades back when she starred on the Fox series Married… with Children: ‘I would eat five almonds in a day, and if I had six I would cry and I wouldn’t wanna leave the house, and that stuck with me for years and years and years.’

Applegate said feels she doesn’t ‘need to be thin’ as she currently focuses on her health, and is fine saving on apparel costs.

‘I’m not working,’ Applegate said. ‘I have a closet full of clothes that I can’t wear, and I have no money coming in. I don’t want to spend money on new clothes. I would just like to wear the ones that I already own.’
