'1000-lb Sisters': Tammy Slaton Agrees to Get Help

Tammy Slaton has been resisting assistance on 1000-lb Sisters since the show began. Though her sister, Amy Slaton, and the rest of the family have been trying to help her get healthy, she has been insistent on doing things on her own. Now, the TLC star has finally agreed to accept some help.

Tammy agrees to get help on ‘1000-lb Sisters’

After leaving rehab before reaching her goal, Tammy finally agreed to hire a home health nurse.

“I wouldn’t say I’m excited to have a stranger in my house, going through all my things. But it might be nice to have someone to talk to and to kick it with,” Tammy says in an upcoming episode, according to People.

But when Tisa, the new nurse arrives, things don’t exactly go smoothly.

“Want a salad?” Tisa asks at one point, to which Tammy responds “No. Hell no.”

Then, Tammy goes back to her old ways of blaming things on Amy.

“Once again, Amy went to the store and didn’t get the right things to make a decent meal that I would know how to prepare,” Tammy says.

Amy still doesn’t get relief

When Tammy went to rehab, Amy was able to focus on her son, Gage, and her husband. But since Tammy has been home, Amy hasn’t had much time to herself. Even when the nurse arrives, Amy still doesn’t catch break.

“Tammy and Tisa are having a discussion about the meal prep, but Tammy of course has to give her an attitude,” Amy says. “The whole idea of getting a home health nurse is to make lives easier for Tammy and me, but if Tammy and Tisa can’t get along, there ain’t no way for this to work.”

At one point, Tammy stops talking to Tisa completely.

“Once she gets mad like that, and she don’t have the things that she wants, you gotta kind of push her,” Tisa says. “I don’t want her to never say that, ‘I can’t.’ That’s not gonna go. She can do it.”

Eventually, Tammy agrees to eat a healthy meal.

“Throughout the day there was a little resistance on Tammy’s part, but I think Tisa is the right fit,” Amy says. “I’m hoping she can help Tammy stay on the right path to the diet and eventually get the surgery. And allow me to take care of my own family.”

Tammy’s health journey on ‘1000-lb Sisters’

When Tammy first appeared on 1000-lb Sisters, she weighed close to 600 pounds. In the first season, she lost a bit of weight but ended up gaining it back. At the end of season 2, she found out she had gained even more weight.

In season, 3, she checked herself into a rehab facility in order to lose weight and battle her food addiction. She ended up losing 60 pounds but ultimately decided to check herself out of the facility before losing all of the weight that the doctor had recommended.

Now, Tammy is trying to lose the weight at home, but has been falling victim to several tempations.

1000-lb Sisters airs on Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
