Tammy Slaton struggled with depression on top of her food addiction during Season 3

Since 1000-Lb. Sisters first debuted, fans watched Tammy engage in unhealthy lifestyle behaviors. At first, it seemed like she really wanted to make better choices for her health. However, she quickly fell behind her sister Amy Halterman and her depression grew.

Dr. Smith said that Tammy would probably have to hit rock bottom before she chose to change her life. And that’s exactly what happened. But in the season finale, fans felt relieved to see Tammy wanted to put her partying ways aside and go back to rehab.

But after just one day in rehab, Tammy had to go back to the hospital. What happened?

“They’re just telling us that her lungs have given up, and like her body is shutting down,” Tammy’s sister Amanda choked up in the episode. “So at this point, you know, we’re facing making funeral arrangements for my little sister.”

Tammy’s siblings prepared for the worst as their sister fought for her life

The siblings revealed that the hospital put Tammy on a ventilator and put her in a medically induced coma. They prepared for the worst.

“They didn’t know if she was going to make it through the night. Or make it through the next hour,” her brother Chris added. “And we stayed four days or so up there. … then the last day we was there, she woke up. And she kept telling us she loved us and wanted to go home.”

  1. Way to go Tammy!!! I’m so happy for you. Keep it up. You got this!!! I’m hoping for nothing but great things for you.

  2. I have compassion for her. I hope she sees the other side of this so she can live an independent life. Independent of a trach and the walker/wheelchair. I don’t for a minute believe she has lost the weight they are saying she has, sorry. Your telling me then she has lost 115 lbs from 750 maybe, but unfortunately her chin doesn’t lie, she is still over 600 lbs. this is all to bait the public along for season 4. Chris got himself stuffed in a suit, yes his smile warms your heart with empathy for them. Reality is all 3 of them are still morbidly obese, you would be hard pressed to find one of them TODAY down a solid 75 lbs of fat loss. Their grandiose numbers are including a ton of waste and water weight, not concise fat burning weight loss.

  3. Wow..u may be right about their weight-loss but honestly do u need to b so friggin rude. That is a family whether they have lost the weight or not. Its not ur place to shame their attempts. We ALL have struggles let’s not forget . Keep your words kind.

  4. Tammy I watch the show and I am a diehard fan, I was deeply sadden when I watched the season finale and found out you were in a coma. Please take care of yourself . I love the picture of you you are a very beautiful lady. You are in my prayers daily I can’t wait to see the finished product. God Bless .

  5. Go Tammy go girl, the good Lord above is really watching over you and brought you through a real close brush with death so now we all know how strong and determined you really are, we all know you want to be the best you can be and you’re finally on the right track, you’re so beautiful, lots of 🙏🙏🙏 for Ms. Tammy Slaton✌️💜

  6. This all happened in Sept, She was in a medically induced coma so of course she couldn’t over eat. She should be a whole lot slimmer by now since its been 4 months or more since the show quit filming, Her most recent pictures on Tic Tock don’t show a huge weight loss.I can only hope she proves me wrong and comes out with a new, improved and slimmer self.
