However, the exact amount of weight Tammy has lost is unknown. That’s because she’s not allowed to reveal that information yet.
Tammy addressed those fans wondering how much weight she lost in a recent TikTok post. “I really wish I could talk about all this stuff that’s going on with my weight and my hair and my clothes, my marriage, but I can’t,” she said in the post. Because Tammy is “under contract” with TLC, she’s limited as to what she can talk about while the show is airing.

As Tammy explained in her TikTok post, season 4 is being split into two parts. Season 4A began on Jan. 17, but eight more episodes have yet to be filmed. “We start filming, B — season 4B — at the end of this month,” Tammy added. “So, I can’t give TLC FOMO.
