Kentucky Siblings Battle to Lose Enough Weight for Bariatric Surgery in New Series 1000-Lb Sisters
"In order to get approved for surgery, we need to lose a lot of weight," Amy Slaton says
The Slaton Sisters embark on a weight loss journey in TLC‘s upcoming docuseries, 1000-Lb Sisters., to premiere on New Year’s Day.
Amy and Tammy Slaton hope to undergo bariatric surgery — but the sisters, who live in Kentucky, will have to lose enough weight to qualify for the procedure.
Amy, 31, and Tammy, 32, weigh 406 lbs. and 605 lbs. respectively. Amy and her husband hope to start a family soon, but are struggling to get pregnant. Tammy has moved in with them following her last hospital stay and requires their help with everyday tasks.
The sisters, who are also YouTube stars, will be chronicling their weight loss journey throughout the six-part series, documenting doctors’ appointments, healthy eating challenges, and revealing the final decision about their surgery.
“I’m ready to cancel the surgery, I don’t see us going forward with it with the progress you’re making right now,” warns one of their doctors in the exclusive clip.
“In order to get approved for surgery, we need to lose a lot of weight,” Amy says. “I think it’s going to be hard, because we’ll both be grumpy if we don’t eat.”
“I don’t want to live off frickin’ salads like ya’ll want me to,” Tammy says.
The pressure to lose weight appears to cause tension between the siblings in a later scene. “I feels like ya’ll are trying to kick me out,” Tammy says. “It’d be better for us to get separated for a little bit,” Amy responds.
“We started this journey together, but there’s only so much one person can do,” Amy says after an argument where Tammy asks her to “get the f— off my back.”
1000-Lb Sisters will be available on TLC Go on Dec. 20 and will premiere live on Jan. 1, 2020 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on TLC.
Poor Roachy, it's like they're telling him he isn't part of the family.I guess this means their little cockroach friend won't be making an appearance.
holy fuck get Lenny away from the cats
The “surgery” is just the pretend positive goal so they can film these fatty freaks. I don’t think Amy or Tammy get any surgery, except a leg amputated from diabetes in a few years.I see Maw! Wonder if Dustin is gonna make an appearance?
Tammy is tard raging. Nothing new there. I think the best part is getting to see Hammy walking around outside with the walker. We don't really get to see much full body Tammy. We don't get to see much full body Amy either. And she is so round that it's like the boulder from Indiana Jones grew limbs and came alive.
I do think Amy lost some weight. Not a lot. But she looks slightly smaller. Tammy on the other hand looks the same to me. Maybe worse.
I can't wait to compare the show with what we already know. I hope we get one of those introduction monologues like on My 600 lb Life.
Seeing Amy in that sports bra made me nauseous. Why would you wear that to the gym at that size? It reminds me of those supersized toddlers you'd see on Maury always dressed with their guts hanging out. I bet the producers told her to wear that. I remember that deleted workout video. Amy was wearing the same thing.
I think Tammy definitely failed. Her current efforts are probably an attempt to diet that obviously isn't working. She has got to be cheating. No one stays 600 lbs if they are following a reasonable weight loss plan. Girl is stuffing her face every waking moment. If Amy somehow manages to get down to a Slaton version of thin Tammy gonna be jelly. Then she gonna eat that Jelly 'cause she fat.
It's both amazing and horrifying to see the Slaton Sister in high def. I am so used to blurry carmas and bad sound that it's like seeing them reborn.
I thought so too. Bananas in miracle whip and rolled in peanuts would require way too much effort for Tammy and Amy to expend. It’s also way too sophisticated for a Slaton meal. We’ve all seen those boxed cake and disastrous fudge recipes for too long to know the Slatons don’t eat anything unless it comes with simple instructions and with half of the “ingredients” already being pre-made.The "dressed bananas" shit is clearly something TLC has made up to make them endearing. Give me a break!
I guess they found this a little more tolerable than some of the insane shit Amy has cooked up in the past. Like when she mixed the jar of peanut butter with the jar of frosting.The "dressed bananas" shit is clearly something TLC has made up to make them endearing. Give me a break!
The recipe contains two healthy/natural things: bananas and peanuts, so it's demonstrably not a Slaton original recipe.I thought so too.

People love TLC. It's professionally produced trash at this point. 80% of my guilty pleasure shows are on that channel.2020 for lolcows is already starting off to a good start. Tammy & Amy get their own TV show, much like Steven from My 600 Lb Life. Twice the net gain, half the intelligence.
Also, I don't get why in these shows, they start crying on public television. You made yourself into that situation; now you find the need to cry? I'm surprised TLC is still relevant nowadays. What's going to happen with their YouTube channel? Did they sign a contract to film exclusively for TLC for a couple episodes?
Somebody mentioned them being scripted. Are they able to read and practice a script for prolonged periods of time? Also, that is NOT their house. That looks too clean.
