1000-Lb Sisters fans are proud of Tammy Slaton’s new look after her bariatric surgery. When fans first met 1000-Lb Sisters star Tammy, she seemed committed to her weight loss goals. Like her sister Amy Slaton, Tammy also had a tough childhood. She and her sister were raised by their grandmother because their mom was always away working several part-time jobs to support the family financially. However, after their grandmother passed away, Tammy and Amy started overindulging in food, eventually leading to their weight problem.
However, despite their resolve to shed enough weight and qualify for bariatric surgery, Tammy’s behavior was not as encouraging as her sister’s. While Amy quickly reached the required weight and underwent bariatric surgery in 2020, Tammy struggled with her weight-loss journey. However, after a near-death experience that saw her lungs collapse during 1000-lb Sisters season 3, Tammy made some lifestyle changes that helped her lose the required weight.
Tammy checked into the Windsor Lane Rehabilitation Center in Ohio — where nurses helped her stick to her dietary plan. In a February episode, fans eventually watched Tammy undergo her weight-loss surgery. Although, the actual surgery took place in the summer of 2022, with Tammy staying at the rehab center to recover. Later in November 2022, Tammy tied the knot with Caleb Willingham — a man she met at the rehabilitation facility. Since then, Tammy has been living her best life, and fans have been quite impressed with her new look.
1000-Lb Sisters Fans Praise Tammy’s Resolve
At the beginning of 1000-lb Sisters, Tammy and Amy weighed a combined 1000lbs. The sisters reiterated their desire to shed some weight to start leading normal lives but admitted it wouldn’t be an easy task. True to their words, it hasn’t been a walk in the park, most especially for Tammy. She struggled to adhere to her doctor’s instructions and diet and nearly paid the ultimate price.
Nearly two years ago, Tammy found herself hospitalized after contracting COVID-19. After she returned home, doctors placed her on supplemental oxygen. Nevertheless, after successfully undergoing bariatric surgery, Tammy looks better than ever. Most of the 1000-lb Sisters fans have been impressed by her journey so far, and they have lauded her for her strength and dedication.
On Reddit, u/Overwhelmed_Dinosaur shared a recent picture of Tammy inside a car with the tagline, “I’m so proud of Tammy!! Look at her!” In the picture, Tammy, who previously couldn’t sit in a car or stand on her own, looks pretty comfortable inside the car alongside two other people. Many of her fans quickly took to the comments section in a massive display of love and support for the reality star. One user gushed:
“She’s able to sit normally in a car now; that’s absolutely fantastic! That has to be so reaffirming to her that she’s on the right path and making the right decisions for herself. Hopefully, she keeps at it and reaches and surpasses even more milestones.”
Tammy is enjoying a new lease on life and pumping that energy into her career as a social media influencer. While she still has her work cut out to ensure that the 1000-Lb Sisters star doesn’t slide back into old habits, fans have faith in her ability to overcome anything thrown at her.
