This article contains spoilers for 1000-lb Sisters Season 3
What’s up with Tammy Slaton? She left home to treat her food addiction at an in-patient rehabilitation center but now that the season has finished filming, fans are curious about how much weight she lost. Tammy’s sister underwent bariatric surgery to get down from an unhealthy weight and have a baby.
The goal is for Tammy to eventually follow in her footsteps with weight, but what happened? Tammy’s weight journey took an interesting turn in Season 2 when it was revealed that Jerry, her boyfriend at that time was feeding her unhealthy food secretly. Tammy ended the relationship, and it looked like she was serious about losing weight for her health in her initial Season 3 rehab stay.
Tammy has been working hard to lose weight and get healthy, so in the Nov. 15, 2021 episode of 1000-lb Sisters, she had a weigh-in at rehab. Her weight was 631 pounds at that time. She lost a whopping 60 pounds during her stay, which was 40 shy of the 100-pound goal that had been set before she arrived. Since she was feeling tired of being away from home, Tammy decided to leave rehab early.
Tammy has not shared a weight update on social media, but people are noticing that she’s gained back some of the pounds she lost. During her doctor’s appointment, on Dec. 6, 2021, episode, she found out that her weight had increased to 639 pounds. In the Season 3 finale, Tammy again agrees to go into rehab after she is off the rails with dieting. At the end of the episode, Tammy has lost over 115 pounds in just 30 days. She could be around 534 now according to Chris.
Tammy has not shared any weight updates on social media since filming. Her Instagram posts do seem to indicate that she’s still in some kind of rehab facility, though; this is good news for future bariatric surgery goals. Tammy might not have reached the criteria for weight-loss surgery. According to Mayo Clinic, candidates must meet a handful of guidelines to qualify. The prerequisites for bariatric surgery include showing an effort to lose weight six months prior, a BMI of 35 or higher, and at least one obesity-related medical condition.
After Tammy made the brave decision to go back into rehab, there was a sense of hope renewed within her family.
