1000-lb Sisters: Amy Slaton Already Not in the Best Health
1000-lb Sisters star Amy Slaton has been in the spotlight for a whole year now and is shocking fans with how well she is doing. She still has a long way to go to meet her goal of being 150 pounds. Her medically professional, Dr. Charles Proctor, told Amy if she does not take this seriously, her life is in danger. It was already a risk to put her under for weight loss surgery, but now she’s pregnant.
Her doctor and family warn her about losing weight while being pregnant. They have to point out that she is eating too much constantly, but Amy says she can’t help it. The baby gets what the baby wants. Her sister Tammy Slaton, who is alongside her on her own weight loss journey, became very worried, noting that she could die if Amy messes up too much with her diet.
Mommy is the Goal Right?
1000-lb Sisters co-sister Amy Slaton says she’s willing to risk her own life for the chance to have a baby. Amy received weight loss surgery early last year. Just four months later she finds out she’s pregnant. Although it was a surprise seeing as she was on birth control to help keep her body from being able to carry a baby. A doctor told Amy that she had to be careful because as women lose weight, they become very fertile.
Amy says she understands, but the whole reason she wanted to lose weight was so she could have a baby. All she wanted in life was to become a mother, and she would not let this opportunity pass. Her husband, Michael Halterman, is also very excited to become a father. He makes it very clear Amy is his main priority through her pregnancy.
