Tammy Slaton and her sister, Amy Slaton, have embarked on a weight loss journey on 1000-lb Sisters. Fans have been rooting for the couple to lose weight and get healthy, but so far, only Amy Slaton has made progress.
In fact, by the end of season 2, Tammy has actually gained weight. Now, fans are wondering if TLC is actually sabotaging Tammy in order to keep the show running.
1000 lb Sisters follows Amy Slaton and Tammy Slaton on their weight loss journeys. Viewers see everything from doctor visits and weigh-ins to the women struggling to make healthy choices. Theoretically, if both women were able to have surgery and reach their goal weights, the show would have to find new storylines to cover.
1000-lb Sisters: Fans Are Getting Worried
Some fans were concerned that TLC might sabotage the sisters. Other fans stated that TLC could never legally do that. “TLC has a long history of shows with hugely obese people and many of them have lost weight,” one fan responded. “I don’t think they are keeping Tammy under contractual obligation to stay at a certain weight, and they certainly aren’t paying her to gain the 100+ lbs she’s gained since starting the show. They would be opening themselves up to a huge lawsuit if they tried that crap. Tammy hasn’t lost weight because she is not accepting that she and she alone is responsible for losing weight.”
Despite most likely not being under any kind of contractual obligation to stay at the same weight or increase it, Tammy has gained a significant amount of weight since the show began. At her last weigh-in, she gained over 60 pounds. Instead of being angry, the doctor was happy that Tammy had finally acknowledged her addiction to food. According to him, this was the first step in making real changes in her weight.
With 1000-lb Sisters Season 3 around the corner, fans are ready to see if Tammy Slaton has made any real changes. According to the synopsis of the new season, Tammy checks herself into a rehab facility to deal with her addiction.
