My 600-lb Life star Tammy Patton is doing everything she can to get back on track and get in Dr. Younan Nowzaradan’s good graces. However, he’s a tough one and not very forgiving.
My 600-lb Life: Tammy Patton Is a Strong Woman
My 600-lb Life insert of the week Tammy Patton shares about the struggles she has gone through to get where she is now. Even though she can walk and move around, she is scared her mobility is failing, and soon, she will be bed-bound. Luckily she has her daughter and mother to help take care of her if it gets to that point. Tammy is trying her hardest to make sure it doesn’t.
Tammy never saw her weight as a problem growing up because no one ever said anything about her size. Even her mother says she noticed but just wanted to keep her happy, so she didn’t say anything. Her man that she had in her life loved her for her and paid no mind to the growing number on the scale. They had three kids together before they ended their relationship mutually with love for each other still. Tragically a girlfriend of his got jealous of Tammy and killed him. He left Tammy with three children to take care of by herself.
Making a Change
My 600-lb Life personality Tammy Patton is determined despite her struggles to lose weight and become a healthier person. Tammy starts her journey at 594 pounds and is relieved to see the number isn’t at 600. She does say that she recognizes that her weight still isn’t something to be proud of. She tells Dr. Younan Nowzaradan that she is willing to do everything that it takes to lose weight. He gives her a goal of losing 40 pounds in two months before her next visit.
When Tammy goes home, COVID-19 struck, and she is unable to make it back. She says she lost about twenty pounds, and Dr. Nowzaradan says she needs to lose more if she is going to put off coming back. She doesn’t end up meeting with him again for seven months. She hasn’t lost any weight, but she also hasn’t gained any. Dr. Now says that this is not good, and if he doesn’t see the progress the next time and if she keeps putting off appointments, he will drop her.
My 600-lb Life: Tammy Puts in the Time
Tammy Patton from My 600-lb Life tells Dr. Younan Nowzaradan she will do whatever she can to gain back his trust and let her continue in the program. Dr. Now says that he will continue with her but she has to show improvement. He gives her a goal of 40 pounds to lose for when she comes back.
When Tammy returns she shocks Dr. now with a 60-pound weight loss. He then approves her for surgery and Tammy is so excited to get her life back on track.
