Fans worry both Chris Combs and Amy Halterman will abandon their sister Tammy Slaton by the time Season 2 of 1000-Lb. Sisters ends. It goes without saying that Chris Combs has been working harder toward losing weight compared to his sister Tammy. Being more mobile than his sister Tammy, exercising also seems to come a little easier.

We, however, know Amy Halterman does not plan on continuing to live a life of servitude to her sister. She and Tammy were on this weight loss journey together. But, when push came to shove, she had the weight loss surgery without Tammy. Because she wasn’t willing to wait for her to catch up.

After getting pregnant, Amy Halterman ultimately puts more distance between herself and her sister. Fans know Amy and Michael do not wish to continue to live with Tammy while raising their son. In fact, they have plans to move somewhere bigger. A little after the baby is born. So, Tammy is going to have to learn how to live without them in the household with her all of the time.

Will Chris Combs abandon Tammy Slaton too?

During Season 2 of 1000-Lb. Sisters we saw big brother Chris Combs become a regular cast member. He, more or less, stepped into the shoes previously filled by Amy.

He has also made it clear he isn’t going to wait for Tammy to catch up either. Like Amy, it doesn’t sound like he’s willing to put his life on hold for his sister.

Likewise, many just don’t know how she will survive if she doesn’t have someone in the home taking care of her.

Now, fans are happy things are moving in the right direction for Chris Combs and Amy Halterman. But, they worry Tammy Slaton won’t be able to recover from her siblings abandoning her.
