Journey Of The 100 LB Sisters:
When Amy and Tammy Slaton began with their weight loss journey, 31-year-old Amy weighed 406 lbs, while her sister Tammy was a whopping 605 lbs heavy at the age of 32. With a combined total weight of over 1,000 pounds, Kentucky sisters Amy and Tammy realized that their lives were being greatly affected by their weight. The sisters also possess a YouTube channel where they used to document their weight loss journey before this show was made. The two were chosen as the cast for this reality TV show as the sum of their weights combined was a shocking 1000lb. Amy and Tammy Slaton now decided to be a part of the show as they wanted to transform their lives by getting bariatric surgery.
406 pounds Amy’s biggest wake-up call came to her when she had a hard time trying to conceive. When Amy met Dr. Procter in Atlanta, she expressed her desire to start a proper family with her husband. Although she really wanted to get pregnant and have her own baby with her newly married husband Michael Halterman, her extreme diabetes and high blood pressure stood in their way of parenthood. It was a catastrophic health risk and pretty much an impossibility for Amy to get pregnant, even though she was only 31 years old.
While in the case of 604 pound Tammy Slaton, she was suffering from clinical depression as her health kept deteriorating. Tammy wanted to attain mental peace and confidence. She was suicidal and had tried to give up on life on several occasions before because of her sickness, ailments, diabetes, etc. She had begun to realize that if she goes on in the same way with her life, she might not make it till she is 35. After spending time in the hospital getting treated for her illness, Tammy moved in with Amy and her husband. And being together once again, the sister duo decided to start with their weight loss journey once again. But trying to work with their weight loss plan together did nothing but create fights between the two, very frequently, and started to drift them apart. Of course, being sisters, they bear a mutual irreplaceable love for each other, but still, somehow their bond started to get affected.
To be eligible for gastric bypass surgery, the two women were advised to lose some weight. Dr, Procter started to guide them, and under the doctor’s careful watch Amy and Tammy Slaton now started to follow a well-prepared diet and some exercises which were added to their everyday routine chores. Definitely, it was an extremely difficult journey for the two, as very often they would relapse. The sisters had been addicted to junk food since a very young age. Food was the only thing they would rely on to make them feel happy or come out of phases of depression- which with time had got them where they were ( at the time of the show). Therefore it was not at all easy for them to come out of the habit.
By the end of the show, the determined Amy had reached her goal and was informed by the doctor that finally she was eligible for the surgery. But then Tammy Slaton, unfortunately, could not make it. She had only managed to lose 50lb which was almost nothing compared to the weight she already had. So, she was advised to go back into her diet and exercise habits. She could not sit for the surgery she desired.
But what happened after the show ended? Where are Amy and Tammy Slaton now? Are they still engaged in their weight loss journey, trying to get better and fitter with every passing day?
