Fans of the TLC docuseries “1000-Lb Sisters” know a lot about the eccentric sisters Amy Slaton and Tammy Slaton, who live in Kentucky (probably more than they wanted to). These niche YouTube sensations became a TLC series when their followers contacted the cable network, essentially submitting a show on their behalf. The rest is history. And while the series focuses on the morbidly obese sisters’ weight-loss journey, details of their personal relationships and the sisters’ banter come into play.
Now in its third season, “1000-Lb Sisters” has shown many changes for both Slaton sisters. Amy Slaton changed her previously unhealthy lifestyle, underwent bariatric surgery, lost over 100 pounds, moved into a new home and had her first child, Gage, with husband Michael Halterman. It’s been quite a journey for Amy Slaton, whose lifelong dream has always been motherhood.
Tammy Slaton’s weight loss and overall life journey has been tumultuous over the series’ three seasons. She’s bounced from one relationship to another, ended up in rehab for her food addiction and gained back all the weight she worked hard to lose.
1000-LB Sisters: Does Tammy Slaton Want Kids?
Although the 35-year-old Kentucky woman sees herself getting married, she has never had any desire to have children. Understandably, Tammy Slaton must be frustrated by the constant comparisons with Amy. So when asked if she wants to have a family one day, her reaction is often one of irritation.
Although Tammy Slaton’s weight has fluctuated here and there since the start of 1000-Lb Sisters in January 2020, she has remained close to 600 kilos. Her lack of progress (or rather, regression) even forced bariatric surgeon Dr. Charles Procter to drop her as a patient, referring her to one of his bariatric surgery colleagues in Kentucky.
According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, Tammy would be at risk of many serious illnesses if she were to become pregnant now. Obesity during pregnancy puts you at risk for gestational hypertension, gestational diabetes and obstructive sleep apnoea, to name but a few.
