Spoiler warning: This article contains spoilers for 1000-lb Sisters Season 3.

Season 3 of 1000-lb Sisters shows Tammy Slaton leave home to treat her food addiction at an in-patient rehabilitation center. But now that the season has finished filming, fans are curious about how much Tammy Slaton weighs. Her sister, Amy Slaton, famously underwent bariatric surgery in order to get down to a healthy weight and have a baby.

The goal seems to be for Tammy to eventually follow in her footsteps with her weight, but what's going on?

Tammy experienced a setback in Season 2 when it was revealed her boyfriend at the time, Jerry Sykes, was secretly feeding her unhealthy food. Tammy and Amy's brother, Chris Combs, accused Jerry of having a fetish for overweight women. Tammy finally ended the relationship, and her rehab stay made it seem like she was serious for a short time about losing weight for her overall health.

Tammy Slaton's weight goes up and down.

So, how much does Tammy weigh now? In the Nov. 15, 2021, episode of 1000-lb Sisters, she had a weigh-in at rehab. According to the scale, she was 631 pounds at that time. She lost 60 pounds during her stay, which was 40 shy of her 100-pound goal. But, because she was tired of being away from home, in the episode, she chose to leave rehab early.

Although Tammy has not shared a weight update on social media, she gained back some weight already.

In the Dec. 6, 2021, episode, which was released on Discovery Plus ahead of time, she's weighed during a doctor appointment. She finds out her weight is now at 639 pounds, meaning she gained weight since she left rehab.

Since filming, however, Tammy has not shared any weight updates on social media. Almost all of Tammy's Instagram photos feature oxygen tubes in her nose. Before now, she didn't have to wear the oxygen around the clock.

Tammy goes to rehab for food addiction in '1000-lb Sisters' Season 3.

Tammy believes rehab could help her lose weight in Season 3 of 1000-lb Sisters. She explains to Amy that the rehab facility has equipment for working out and the tools she'll need to lose enough weight to eventually have bariatric surgery herself.

Unfortunately, Tammy chooses to end her stay early. She still feels like she can work on her weight at home, given what she learned at rehab.

But Tammy might still be far from surgery. According to Mayo Clinic, candidates for weight-loss surgery have to meet a handful of guidelines. The conditions include showing an effort to lose weight six months prior to surgery, a BMI of 35 or higher, and at least one obesity-related medical condition. If Tammy gets serious about getting surgery like her sister, she'll have to make a dedicated effort on her own first.

Tammy's ex Jerry was accused of having a fetish for overweight women.

It's possible that Tammy would have lost more weight if she didn't date Jerry. They aren't together anymore, but his apparent fetish with feeding Tammy and keeping her at an unhealthy weight slowed down any progress she might have made.

And with her new boyfriend in the picture, whom Chris and Amy worry is another "feeder," things haven't gotten any easier.

Watch 1000-lb Sisters on Mondays at 10 p.m. EST on TLC.
