The Slaton sisters offer a goldmine of laughter, drama and quirk – both they and all the other TLC stars. YouTube sensations and ‘1000-Lb Sisters’ stars Amy Slaton and Tammy Slaton have been best friends their whole lives, but that doesn’t mean they don’t get into dangerous sibling fights, many of which have to do with Tammy Slaton’s weight loss.
As the show’s title suggests, it’s based on the lives of Kentucky-based sisters Amy Slaton and Tammy Slaton, with a particular focus on their arduous weight-loss journey.
At the start of the first season – which premiered in January 2020 – Amy Slaton weighed around 400 kilos, while Tammy Slaton weighed 600 kilos. It was Amy who shocked her way into taking control of her life with the help and guidance of weight loss surgeon Dr. Procter, eventually losing enough weight to qualify for bariatric surgery.
After the successful surgery, the doctor advised her and her husband Michael Halterman to wait at least two years before getting pregnant. But, ooop, Amy Slaton got pregnant just four months later!
We understand that motherhood has been a lifelong dream of hers, but girl, listen to your doctor! Thankfully, Amy’s pregnancy and her emergency C-section went well and fans can’t help but gush over her beautiful son, Gage. Given that Amy Slaton has recently embarked on a rewarding – but stressful – journey as a new mum, is she still living with Tammy or has she moved?
1000-LB Sisters: Amy Slaton Halterman And Michael Halterman Moved Into A New Home
Since the start of the show, Amy Slaton has grown from a size 5XL to a size XL and has happily started a family. We love it for her. However, you may have noticed that we haven’t mentioned Tammy Slaton’s triumphs because there have been few. It seems harsh, but fans and Tammy’s siblings alike are tired of her running herself ragged, wrecking her health even further and making herself immobile.
While it’s unclear where the fiercely demanding Tammy Slaton – who always has a grimace on her face – now lives, it’s no longer with Amy and Michael. The girls recruited Tammy’s housekeeper, Tisa, to help with daily tasks. Thanks to Tisa’s help, Amy and her husband are no longer burdened by Tammy’s constant threatening needs, many of which could be better managed if Tammy took her health seriously.
The high school children can now focus on raising their child in their new home. And while it’s a step towards a more independent future for the Slaton-Halterman family, it has also come with a few hiccups. And a few snags.
