1,000 Pound Sisters: Weight Loss Struggle for Tammy Slaton
During the first few episodes of 1,000 Pound Sisters, it becomes very apparent that Tammy’s health is in danger. This is because of how overweight Tammy Slaton is. She and her sibling Amy Slaton are attempting to qualify for bariatric surgery to help them quickly lose weight, to save their lives.
Throughout the filming of the show, Tammy Slaton isn’t cooperative about the efforts needed for her to lose weight. She and Amy Slaton are not only sisters, but they also live together. While living together, Amy takes care of Tammy.
Yet, Tammy constantly yells at and belittles Amy on 1000-lb Sisters. While Amy Slaton makes efforts to lose weight by eating healthier and going to the gym, Tammy doesn’t make the same efforts. Over time, this leads to an increased level of tension between them.
