1000-lb Sisters: Tammy Slaton Slacks Off On Progress
On 1000-lb Sisters, Tammy Slaton isn’t taking her health seriously. After her family’s spent multiple weeks pleading with her to change her eating habits, Tammy’s not making any improvement. With her most recent weigh-in putting her at nearly 700-lb, the Slaton family doesn’t have a lot of hope left for Tammy.
1000-lb Sisters personality Tammy Slaton originally worked with her sister, Amy Slaton, to lose weight. At her first weigh-in, Tammy’s scale read off at 605-lb. However, she didn’t try hard at first to slim down. After a realization that she wants to get gastric bypass surgery, Tammy manages to slim down 50-lb.
But, after the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Tammy’s stuck in her house. Also, she blames the boredom and loneliness that quarantine brought on for her huge increase in weight. Even after breaking quarantine, she manages to put on 50-lb in around a one-month span.
Funeral Plans for TLC Celeb
Tammy Slaton from 1000-lb Sisters isn’t trying hard enough to save her own life. At 600-lb, doctors told her that she has around five years to live. However, she’s continued to stack on the pounds after that news. While the death sentence makes her siblings worry, Tammy isn’t concerned enough about her health to stop eating.
So, since she’s given up on herself, Tammy’s family is making plans for her. Amy Slaton, Chris Slaton, and the mother of 1000-lb Sisters bought a burial plot for her. Sadly, one spot wasn’t large enough for her. So, they ended up needing to purchase two plots for the star.
1000-lb Sisters: Tammy Slaton Too Large to Cremate
1000-lb Sisters star Tammy Slaton is too big to be cremated. While many fans may believe that it’s because of how massive her stomach is, there’s another surprising reason why. Crematorium businesses across the United States are having problems burning the remains of morbidly obese individuals. That’s because the amount of fat on these bodies cause grease fires, which get out of control very quickly.
In April 2017, a business in Cincinnati, Ohio burned down after the remains of an “overly obese” person burned too hot, because of the fat melting off of the body. But, this isn’t an isolated incident, as there are many other companies that have had the same problem. A similar occurrence happened in October 2014 in Virginia, when ignighting a 500-lb body.
Due to the size of Tammy Slaton from 1000-lb Sisters, burning her body would greatly increase the probability of a crematorium catching fire.
