Amy and Tammy Slaton have a contentious relationship in 1000-lb Sisters. Amy and Tammy have also helped each other lose weight over the years.

Amy and Tammy Slaton have been criticized for not making enough progress in their weight loss journeys throughout their years starring in 1000-lb Sisters, but the pair of siblings have helped each other stay focused on their fitness aspirations despite their slew of setbacks. Unfortunately, neither Amy nor Tammy have lived up to the health goals they set for themselves in 1000-lb Sisters season 1, and although they do have a tendency to get in one another’s way, the sisters have also helped each other lose weight more than viewers realize. From Amy’s habit of warding off harmful boyfriends to Tammy providing emotional support, here’s how Amy and Tammy Slaton helped each other lose weight in 1000-lb Sisters.


Sadly, fans have watched Amy and Tammy’s relationship hit record lows throughout the reality star siblings’ joint weight loss ventures in 1000-lb Sisters. Over the years, the siblings have endured a turbulent relationship as Tammy has grown more antagonistic and inclined to take her frustration out on her younger sister than improve her diet and exercise routine. In 1000-lb Sisters season 3, some fans assumed Amy and Tammy’s relationship would come to an end as the troublesome older sibling made a habit of bullying Amy, but both sisters have contributed to each other’s fitness success when they are at their best.

Even though Amy and Tammy agreed to embark on weight loss quests simultaneously in 1000-lb Sisters season 1, the pair of TV personalities have been on disparate journeys in regard to both their health and personal lives. While Amy Slaton has made more headway in her fitness effort and is now a mother, Tammy has fallen behind and is currently in a rehabilitation center attempting to get her health back on track. Although they are best known for creating chaos whenever they’re together, Amy and Tammy Slaton helped each other lose weight throughout their complicated shared experience in 1000-lb Sisters.

Unfortunately, Tammy hasn’t always kept her eyes on the prize as she’s fought to lose weight in 1000-lb Sisters. Understandably, Tammy has craved some semblances of a normal life after decades of feeling like she doesn’t belong due to her weight. Tammy’s desire to lead a regular life illustrated itself with the romantic interests the reality star has pursued while starring in 1000-lb Sisters. Although Tammy Slaton vowed that her priority is weight loss, the TV personality has a habit of sidelining her health for romantic relationships when significant others come into the picture. In 1000-lb Sisters season 2, Tammy dated Jerry Sykes, a married man that encouraged the Slaton sister to stray from her diet and exercise routine. In season 3, Tammy was in a relationship with Phillip Redmond, a TikTok user who fetishizes larger women. Fortunately, Amy was always looking out for Tammy.

Although 1000-lb Sisters fans can sympathize with Tammy’s desire to live a normal life and have a boyfriend, Amy understood that men like Jerry and Phillip were hazardous to her sister’s already precarious health. Sadly, Tammy’s significant others encouraged her to eat unhealthy food and gain back much of the weight she had lost on her fitness quest. Fortunately, Tammy had Amy to remind her of her priorities. Although Amy Slaton did her best to not judge her sister for living out her romantic aspirations, the youngest Slaton sibling helped Tammy lose weight by exposing Jeremy and Phillip as feeders. If Tammy continued dating her ex-boyfriends, Philip and Jeremy might have kept feeding Tammy until she died. Amy’s effectively served her sisterly duty of warding off Tammy’s bad boyfriends and encouraging her sibling to return her focus to her weight loss.

Tammy Helped Amy With Emotional Support

Amy and Tammy’s relationship has been complicated throughout the Slaton family’s run in 1000-lb Sisters, to say the least. As the seasons have progressed, a rift between the siblings has formed that has threatened to destroy Amy and Tammy’s bond altogether. Fans suspected that by 1000-lb Sisters season 3, Tammy had grown to resent her younger sister. Not only was Amy successful in losing enough weight to qualify for bariatric surgery, but Amy Slaton also has a family of her own, complete with a loving husband and growing baby boy. Amy’s blossoming family life also meant that she had less time to look after Tammy in 1000-lb Sisters season 3, which led to drama between the sisters. Although the siblings almost fell out in the latest season, Tammy wasn’t always so harsh with her younger sister. It’s difficult to imagine now, but Tammy was instrumental in Amy losing weight.

Even though Amy is celebrated for losing enough weight to qualify for bariatric surgery in 1000-lb Sisters season 1, it wasn’t a piece of cake for the reality star to meet her doctor’s expectations. Just like Tammy, Amy was raised on an unhealthy diet that developed into a food addiction. Amy still struggles to stick to her weight loss journey and Tammy Slaton proved to be a source of support for Amy before she qualified for her gastric bypass operation. Specifically, Tammy comforted her younger sister after Amy discovered that she fell short of her fitness milestones during a weigh-in in 1000-lb Sisters season 1. While Amy sobbed about her regression, Tammy lifted her sister’s spirits and inspired her to keep working toward her health aspirations. Without Tammy, Amy might’ve given up on her weight loss journey before undergoing her life-saving bariatric surgery.

Tammy Helps Amy Stay Motivated

Unfortunately, Amy is still struggling to keep up her weight loss goals even after undergoing her gastric bypass operation at the end of 1000-lb Sisters season 1. In season 2, Amy gained weight while she was pregnant with her son, Gage, and in season 3, Amy’s continued to regress in her fitness endeavor as she’s prioritized raising Gage over eating healthy food and exercising. Although Amy Slaton has been wavering in her weight loss pursuit, she likely won’t fail because Tammy illustrates just how devastating it would be for her to give in to her food addiction. No one knows all of the hardship that Tammy’s dealing with better than Amy, and by being a tragic example of food addiction’s consequences, Tammy helps Amy stay motivated to lose weight so she doesn’t end up like 1000-lb Sisters‘ villain.
