1000-lb Sister: Tammy Slaton Larger Than Life
Tammy Slaton is on a weight loss journey most people couldn’t imagine on 1000-lb Sisters. She has been lugging around 600 pounds of weight for years now.

It’s not just 1000-lb Sisters viewers that noticed Tammy struggling to meet goals. Her family is jumping in to support her as well. Her sister, Amy Slaton, tries to cook for her and make sure she’s eating right. Also, her brother Chris stepped up his efforts by dieting with her. He even brings her exercise equipment to encourage her to raise up her heart rate.
With the doctors giving Tammy 80% odds of dying within the next five years, the worries are warranted. Now, Tammy Slaton has another health concern as she’s been bitten. Is this the work of her boyfriend, Jerry Sykes, or something else entirely?
