1000lb sisters star Tammy Slaton unrecognizable as she achieves her goal weight
After achieving her weight loss goal, Tammy Slaton of 1000lb Sisters is nearly unrecognizable. After hearing that she had lost more than 180 pounds, she shared her joy.
After struggling with her weight for many years, she was admitted to a food rehabilitation facility. She was also rushed to the hospital last year after having trouble with her breathing.
Tammy received a tracheotomy which created a hole in her throat for a breathing tube to be inserted. She continued using the tube for several months. Amy Slaton, her sister, said that Tammy’s body had “shut down”.
After starting food rehabilitation, the tube has been removed and Tammy now uses an oxygen cannula. The TLC star has now undergone a complete transformation after reaching her goal weight of 550lbs, the weight which is required for bariatric surgery. She went down from 717lbs when she first started rehab, which was the most she’d ever.
In a new episode of the show, Tammy was heard saying;
“I need to get to 550lbs for me to be approved for surgery. Until then, I hate getting on a scale. My worst fear is gaining weight. I don’t want to disappoint my family or myself.”
When Tammy stepped onto the scales it revealed she weighed 534lbs which is 16 pounds under her goal. Her sister Amanda said: “Are you serious? For real? Tammy, you see that!”
While Misty confessed she is “so stoked” for her sister. Tammy confessed;
“When I got on the scale and saw it was at 534.7, I kinda stopped breathing for a second. From over 700, that’s a huge drop.
“I did that! I’m feeling thrilled, proud, excited just all the emotions. I proved everybody wrong. Everybody that doubted me, I finally got mine! My told-you-so moment!”
