Traditionally, Tammy Slaton uses her sister, Amy, as a punching bag to process her weight loss frustration in 1000-lb Sisters, but some of the Slaton family’s followers think Amy has been using Tammy as well. Although Tammy has struggled the most when it comes to committing to her health goals in 1000-lb Sisters, fans have noted that Amy hasn’t made as much fitness progress as it appears. From Amy’s recent weight gain to Tammy’s ongoing inability to make any headway at all, here’s why 1000-lb Sisters fans think Amy Slaton uses Tammy as her scapegoat.
Amy and Tammy both began their journeys in 1000-lb Sisters season 1 with the identical purpose to lose enough weight to qualify for bariatric surgery. Although they shared an ambition, Amy and Tammy had disparate levels of interest in following through with their weight loss aspirations. While Amy stayed dedicated to her diet and exercise regimen, for the most part, Tammy shirked her responsibilities and continued indulging in her unhealthy habits. This resulted in Amy undergoing bariatric surgery and Tammy getting rejected for the life-saving operation. Since season 1, however, neither Amy nor Tammy has demonstrated a strong desire to lose weight. 1000-lb Sisters fans think Amy Slaton uses Tammy as a scapegoat for her weight loss stagnancy.
Unfortunately, Amy has struggled to keep up the fitness success that qualified her for bariatric surgery in 1000-lb Sisters season 1. Even though her surgeon, Dr. Procter, suggested she wait a few years before trying to have children, Amy and Michael discovered they had a baby on the way only months after the gastric bypass operation. While pregnant, Amy was called out for giving in to her cravings and letting herself off the hook for eating unhealthy food. Now that she’s a mother, Amy has continued to sideline her weight loss journey as Gage has become the reality star’s priority. Amy recently learned that she is failing to meet her fitness goals, but 1000-lb Sisters didn’t focus on this issue for long because of Tammy’s ongoing close-to-death condition. Some fans think Amy uses Tammy as a scapegoat to distract from her own weight loss setbacks.
Tammy is in the most desperate need of weight loss surgery in 1000-lb Sisters season 3 as she routinely lands in the hospital as a result of her stalled fitness journey. While Tammy needs to take her health seriously, she can’t negate the defeat Amy has faced in their weight loss endeavors in 1000-lb Sisters. Viewers have speculated that Amy, Chris Combs, and Amanda Halterman have all used Tammy as a scapegoat so they don’t have to face criticism for their own weight loss shortcomings. Instead of dealing with their food addictions, the Slaton siblings make themselves feel better by pointing out how unhealthy Tammy is. A Reddit user explained, “The whole family uses Tammy to mask their terrible food choices.” Another fan argued that Amy needs to be held to a higher standard, asserting, “Amy has been praised basically because Tammy has done so badly.”
If Tammy Slaton doesn’t get her health back on track soon, she might not have that many more years left to star in 1000-lb Sisters, but viewers believe Amy’s using her sister as a mechanism to distract from her own weight gain. Amy Slaton uses Tammy as a scapegoat so she never has to get too bogged down by the consequences of her food addiction. Hopefully, both Slaton sisters will return their focus to their weight loss journeys as they move forward from 1000-lb Sisters season 3.
