Tammy Slaton’s family can’t keep taking care of her in 1000-lb Sisters. Tammy becoming a ward of the state is in everyone’s best interest.

Tammy Slaton has been under the care of her generous family members before and throughout the Slaton clan’s weight loss journey in 1000-lb Sisters, but fans think it’s finally time the state be responsible for Tammy. Although it has been her goal to care for herself, Tammy has relied on her family members to complete daily tasks from preparing her meals to transporting her, and viewers think it has taken a toll on the Slaton family. From the Slaton siblings’ blossoming personal lives to Tammy’s ongoing struggle to make headway in her weight loss goal, here’s why 1000-lb Sisters fans think Tammy needs to be a ward of the state.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Ever since viewers were first introduced to the Slaton crew in 1000-lb Sisters season 1, it has been evident that Tammy has become a burden for her siblings, Amy Slaton-Halterman, Chris Combs, Amanda Halterman, and Misty to take care of. In 1000-lb Sisters season 3, Tammy demonstrated just how much work is required to combat her life-threatening health complications as well as her erratic personality that fends off any ally trying to help her. Although her siblings have been nothing but dedicated to Tammy, Chris suggested that the next step for the TV personality’s care needs to be Tammy becoming a ward of the state.

Tammy has asserted that she doesn’t need additional help, but the 1000-lb Sisters star’s family members don’t agree that they are enough to look after Tammy. Amy Slaton even hired an at-home nurse, Tisa, to help the Slaton siblings with the overwhelming task of caring for Tammy, but the caretaker wasn’t enough to cure Tammy’s physical ailments and emotional strife with her family members. Tammy’s siblings and 1000-lb Sisters fans agree that Tammy needs to be a ward of the state because she hasn’t shown any signs of becoming less of a burden for her brother and sisters as she continues to head down a dangerous path.


Tammy Needs To Be A Ward of The State Because Of Her Weight Gain

The most apparent reason why 1000-lb Sisters fans think Tammy needs to get out of her siblings’ care and be a ward of the state is her ongoing struggle to make progress in her harrowing weight loss journey. After decades of suffering from food addiction, Tammy finally decided to do something about her life-threatening health status in 1000-lb Sisters season 1. Tammy and Amy committed to the ambitious goal of losing enough weight to qualify for bariatric surgery by the end of season 1. Although Amy managed to stick to her diet and exercise regimen sufficiently enough to undergo the weight loss operation by 1000-lb Sisters season 1’s conclusion, Tammy didn’t exhibit the same drive to salvage her health. Instead of prioritizing her fitness goals in season 1, Tammy consistently fell short of the weight loss milestones her doctor set for her.


Regrettably, Tammy indicated that she was comfortable failing to meet her health aspirations throughout the rest of her fitness quest in 1000-lb Sisters. In season 2, Tammy’s health deteriorated when she put her relationship with married enabler Jerry Sykes above her weight loss ambition. While dating Jerry, Tammy gained weight and contracted COVID-19. Although Tammy Slaton managed to recover from the virus, she required the help of an oxygen tube to breathe. Tammy’s breathing worsened in 1000-lb Sisters season 3 when she took part in reckless behavior like vaping and drinking with friends. Tammy’s currently in a rehabilitation center, but the latest photos of the entertainer haven’t impressed fans. Viewers think Tammy needs to be a ward of the state because she hasn’t lost weight on her own. If Tammy returns to live with Amy in 1000-lb Sisters season 4, fans fear the cycle of weight gain will continue.


Tammy Needs To Be A Ward of The State Because Of Her Siblings Can’t Care For Her

While Tammy might still be stuck at square one when it comes to her weight loss journey, the rest of the Slaton siblings are moving on with their lives. Amy Slaton shared that she had several reasons for following through with her weight loss ambitions in 1000-lb Sisters season 1. Of course, Amy knew that if she didn’t get in shape her life would be cut short, but another source of Amy’s motivation is her dream of being a mother. Amy and her husband, Michael Halterman, have confessed that they were eager to welcome children into their family, but Amy’s weight made it dangerous for her to get pregnant and give birth. One reason why Amy was able to adhere to her diet and exercise routine is that she was driven to be healthy enough to have a child. Fortunately, Amy’s had work paid off in 1000-lb Sisters season 2.

After Amy discovered she was pregnant, it became immediately apparent that Tammy wouldn’t be able to rely on her younger sister’s care like she was used to. Although Amy Slaton remained dedicated to Tammy’s recovery, the younger Slaton sibling had to focus on her baby boy, Gage, and take on less responsibility when it came to Tammy’s life in 1000-lb Sisters season 3. Recently, Amy announced that she is currently pregnant with her second child, which is great news for her but bad news for Tammy. With two babies on her hands, Amy’s plate won’t have any room for all of the hard work that comes with looking after Tammy. Additionally, now that Chris has undergone his own bariatric operation, he has his own life to live. Tammy needs to be a ward of the state because her siblings don’t have as much time for her.


Tammy Needs To Be A Ward of The State Because Of Her Toxic Relationships

The last reason why Tammy Slaton should be a ward of the state rather than left for her siblings to care for is that the reality star’s relationship with her family isn’t good for Tammy or her relatives. Most notably, Tammy has become more of a bully with each new season of 1000-lb Sisters and will likely continue to antagonize her siblings if she returns to their custody after rehab. In season 3, Tammy cursed Amy out on a number of occasions and almost ended their relationship when she called Amy stupid one too many times. On the other hand, Tammy needs to be a ward of the state because her family enables her. Tammy’s siblings have been unsuccessful in getting her to lose weight at home and allowed her to gain weight throughout 1000-lb Sisters. Tammy needs to be a ward of the state if she wants real change.
