Her brother Chris Combs says it seems like every time she steps on the scale; she adds another 20 pounds.

Being 665 pounds, she could die any day, according to doctors. Because of Tammy’s size, she has a lot of things wrong with her. She is put in danger of dying every day due to the amount of weight that hangs off her body. She has opted for gastric bypass surgery, but the thing is, she has to lose weight to qualify. Her doctors give her a goal of 550 pounds to reach before she can get the surgery. Tammy met it before but quickly gained all the weight back and then some before getting the surgery. This isn’t the only thing she has tried, though.
