1000-lb Sisters follows sisters Amy and Tammy Slaton as they try to lose weight and get healthier. Both sisters have had some set backs on the TLC TV show. Tammy actually gained weight at the end of 1000-lb Sisters Season 2 and Amy had a baby. But despite the set backs, Amy appears to be making great progress. She recently uploading a bikini picture debuting her new body.
Amy and Tammy’s original weight
At the beginning of their weight loss journeys, the sisters’ weight was concerning to their doctor. Amy weighed around 400 lbs. and her sister, Tammy, was around 600 lbs. Their doctor stressed to the women that they could not continue going like that and that their weight was a huge health risk. So, both women set out to lose weight.
Through her healthier eating and exercising choices, Amy was able to lose enough weight to qualify for weight loss surgery, which really helped her get healthy. Tammy, on the other hand, gained weight and was not able to get the surgery.

After season 1, Amy got pregnant and gave birth to her son, Gage. But, she didn’t let that stop her weight loss journey. After giving birth, Amy got down to 270 lbs. Now, she appears to have lost even more weight.
In April, Amy posted side by side photos of herself to show off her progress. In the first photo, she is in a sports bra and shorts. She wrote that that first outfit was a 5xl. In the second photo, Amy proudly dawns a bikini that she says is a size xl.
