1000-lb Sisters: Tammy’s Previous Roommates

1000-lb Sisters personality Tammy Slaton lives on her own now after years of not being alone. Before Tammy moved into her own place, she lived with multiple siblings. Unfortunately, all the living situations had to change to accommodate Tammy. She was 600 pounds, and it was hard to feed someone like that. Not to mention Tammy’s mood would be through the roof.

Eventually when she moved in with her sister Amy Slaton and her husband, Michael Halterman. Cameras showed the sisters not getting along too well. While they were each other’s best friends, they also seemed like worst enemies. Amy lived in a duplex, and when her neighbor moved out, she suggested Tammy moves in. That way, they will be close enough to see each other every day but also keep some space. After all, Amy thought Tammy moving out on her own would be motivated to lose weight.

She Must Have Thought Wrong

1000-lb Sisters co-sister Tammy Slaton moved out on her own in 2020. When that happened, she did genuinely start losing weight. She made her way down to 550 pounds and was ready to be approved for surgery. But then COVID-19 hit, and the 1000 Pound Sisters went into quarantine. Since Tammy was alone, she ate. She said staying on a diet is hard when there is nothing else to do but eat.

Now that the world is adjusted to living indoors and being cautious, Tammy has not learned how to cut back. A recent doctor’s appointment shows that she has, in fact, gained more than 100 pounds coming in at 665. Doctors say once she can not get out of bed, her life will be over. Her boyfriend Jerry Sykes, who she met on a website for bigger women, helps take care of her sometimes. He says he’s not sure he wants to take on the full responsibility of her, though.
