Tammy has shown off her knowledge of cooking and helped Amy Slaton understand her pregnancy better. She also talks about how she wants to present herself to the world. When her boyfriend Jerry Sykes asks what she does for a living, she says she is an influencer.

Tammy Slaton says that she also wants to try and be a model if she is ever able to bring her weight down. She is currently trying to do this. She has dieted and worked out with her family, but she is now rumored to be in a rehab facility when that failed. In videos she posts online, her hair is all done up, and so is her makeup.

The Story So Far

1000-lb Sisters co-sister Tammy Slaton started a weight loss journey with her sister Amy Slaton in early 2020. Now she is 100 pounds heavier from where she started. But her doctors say she is still making progress. After a whole year of putting nearly twenty pounds on the scale every time she got weighed, they think they’ve identified her problem.

Doctors point out that Tammy has a food addiction. This is why it is rumored she is in rehab. Basically, her family gave her a choice. She either goes and gets help, or they are leaving her alone. It was a hard conversation to have, but even her brother Chris Combs gets emotional, saying he doesn’t want to lose her. Now that their mother is getting higher in age, she has gone out and bought three burial plots – one for her and two for Tammy.

1000-lb Sisters: Tammy VS COVID-19

Tammy Slaton from 1000-lb Sisters tested positive for COVID-19 just days after her nephew Gage Slaton was born. Chris Combs also fell ill. Something like COVID-19 for people their size is basically a death sentence. Thankfully both survived and are on the road to recovery, with Chris making almost a complete recovery and Tammy still working on hers.

Tammy now has to wear an oxygen mask where ever she goes. She says she can’t breathe at all without it. Since she is so big, she knew she would need it eventually. She jokes around and calls it her leash. She says she feels like a dog on a lead. At least she still has her classic Slaton sister humor. Fans hope she recovers soon.

Season two of 1000-lb Sisters may be over, but Soap Dirt updates daily.
