1000-LB SISTERS star Tammy Slaton has left her Ohio weight rehab clinic after 14 months in treatment and shedding nearly 300 pounds.

The 1000-Lb Sisters star shed an impressive amount of weight as she worked diligently in her Ohio weight rehab to reach her goal weight and return home.

A source close to the star has shared Tammy is back in Kentucky and settling into her new healthy life.

She’s still working up to walking longer distances and driving – although Tammy can fit in the front seat of a normal car and no longer needs to ride with extra room adjusted for her in the back.

Tammy can also stand for short periods of time to give her friends and family hugs.


Tammy has been sober and has quit smoking and vaping for nearly nine months, which is a huge achievement for the star after she spent the summer of 2021 partying.

Previously on 1000-Lb Sisters, Tammy admitted she downed eight bottles of booze a week, leaving doctors fearing for her life.

She also openly ate pizza, vaped, and asked friends for shots of liquor in clips from the show.

In the season three finale, she even stopped breathing for a time after a party bender.


The U.S. Sun also revealed Tammy now weighs just over 400 pounds at the end of her 14-month rehab stay – and is nearly half her size.

After once tipping the scales at 700 pounds, Tammy lost a shocking 300 pounds in her battle against obesity.

As show fans know, Tammy admitted herself to rehab early last year for a second time to get her life back on track.

“When Tammy was first in rehab, she needed to reach her goal weight of 550 pounds from around 700 pounds in order to be approved for her bariatric surgery,” a friend told The U.S. Sun exclusively.

Bariatric surgery is an operation on the digestive system to help a patient loose weight quickly in extreme situations.

On the recent season four episode of 1000-Lb Sisters airing on TLC, she reached her goal weight.

As The U.S. Sun first reported, Tammy successfully underwent the life-changing procedure in the summer of 2022- and the friend claimed she has since dropped another 150 pounds.


While Tammy is thriving since leaving rehab in Ohio, her husband Caleb Willingham still has a little more time left at the clinic to reach his goal weight.

Tammy’s friend said she is supportive of her husband wanting to stay in the clinic for a little longer and wants Caleb to “take all of the time he needs.”

The plan is for Caleb to transfer from the Ohio clinic to one located in Henderson, Kentucky, to be a little closer to Tammy.

According to the source, Caleb has to settle a few insurance details before relocating closer to his wife.

The couple got married in November 2022 after getting engaged one month earlier.

An insider close to Tammy said: “She began dating Caleb in rehab, and I’m so happy they met in person and were not dating online.”

Tammy announced her marriage to her fans with a video.

She said: “Y’all knew me as Tammy Slaton, but now y’all know me as Mrs. Tammy Willingham.”

Caleb has been supportive of Tammy’s weight loss journey and has been encouraging her to exercise and eat well to maintain her healthy new lifestyle.
