Did Tammy Slaton have weight loss surgery?

In Season 3 of 1000-Lb. Sisters, Tammy hit a few roadblocks in her journey to qualify for bariatric surgery. She started drinking and partying with friends who only enabled her habits, which contributed to her poor health.

By Season 4, Tammy had finally reached the required weight that would allow her to undergo bariatric surgery, per The U.S. Sun. Her weight dropped from 700 pounds to 550. In the summer of 2022, Tammy had the extensive weight-loss procedure performed, and has since shed another 150 pounds, a source told the media outlet.

While there were a few critical comments, and one from someone suggesting Tammy could use "a good push up bra," overall, Tammy's fans were overjoyed by her dramatic transformation. Go Tammy!

Amy Slaton has welcomed two children since having her weight-loss surgery.

Just a few months after Amy had bariatric surgery on 1000-Lb. Sisters, she got pregnant with her first child, Gage.

In July 2022, Amy and Michael welcomed a second child into their family: a son they named Glenn Allen Halterman. Tammy is close to Gage, so it would make sense for her to want to have her procedure and be home in time to welcome Amy's second baby.

While Amy's surgery was a success and it allowed for her to bring two beautiful babies into the world, we can't say the same for her marriage. On March 13, 2023, Michael filed for divorce, marking an end to their almost four-year marriage. A month prior to the divorce petition being filed, Amy and her two kids reportedly went to live with Tammy, The U.S. Sun reported.

Seasons 1-4 of 1000-Lb. Sisters is now available to stream on TLC.
