1000-lb Sisters: Why Amy Slaton Is Accused Of Enabling Tammy

Amy and her sister Tammy have both faced intimidating challenges throughout their weight loss journeys in 1000-lb Sisters, and some fans claim Amy has contributed to her sister's health issues. Amy has struggled to grow independent from Tammy as the pair of siblings have become dependent on one another since their difficult childhoods. From acting as Tammy's caretaker to refusing to hold her sister accountable for her actions, this is why 1000-lb Sisters viewers think Amy supports Tammy's unhealthy lifestyle.

Amy and Tammy's paths diverged as the duo of sisters made disparate progress in their weight loss ventures. On the positive side, Amy was able to lose enough to qualify for bariatric surgery in season 1. Regrettably, Tammy hasn't been able to match her sister's success. After failing to meet her weight loss requirements, 1000-lb Sisters fans hoped Tammy would make new strides in season 2 with the help of her brother, Chris Combs. Sadly, neither Tammy nor Chris was fruitful in their ambitious goals to lose weight. In fact, Tammy gained weight throughout her journey in the previous chapter. With season 3 now in full gear, audiences are critical of the factors that have prevented Tammy from qualifying for a bariatric operation.

One popular theory among the 1000-lb Sisters fanbase puts the blame on Amy for Tammy's inability to make significant headway in her trek toward a life-saving weight-loss operation. Typically, fans praise Amy for putting up with her temperamental sister and being a source of support for Tammy as she fights for her life. Recently, however, many viewers agree that Amy is allowing Tammy to shirk her weight-loss commitments. On Reddit, one fan explained their frustration with Amy after Tammy expressed disdain for having to cook for herself, writing, "Amy started falling into old habit of ‘helping’ Tammy... Amy needs to just get out of Tammy’s day to day life like this." Another Reddit user argued that Amy's an inadequate caretaker and is directly responsible for Tammy's weight, asserting, "If Amy was buying her healthy food she wouldn't be gaining the way she does."

Other Reddit users agreed that Amy and Chris are too involved in their sister's life and need to allow her to sink or swim on her own. A commenter grimly assessed that by taking Tammy out of rehab, "[Amy and Chris] are literally helping her slowly commit suicide." While a slew of 1000-lb Sisters' audience members agree Amy needs to do a better job of forcing Tammy to take accountability, others have more hope for the younger Slaton sister. In light of baby Gage's birth, some fans believe Amy will finally separate herself from Tammy. One fan shared, "I think with gage we will see amy finally start to put her foot down and no longer do everything for her." While this might make Tammy resentful, fans concur Tammy must hold herself, not Amy, accountable for her health.

Where some viewers commend Amy for being such a caring younger sister, others contest that Amy's been too nurturing and is now to blame for Tammy's inability to fight for her life. From buying unhealthy foods for her sister to allowing Tammy to leave rehab early, viewers think Amy needs to create some boundaries with her sister to save Tammy's wellbeing. For better or worse, Amy and Tammy are poised to grow apart throughout 1000-lb Sisters season 3.
