1000-LB. Sisters star Tammy Slaton has detailed the terrifying moments of a health scare that landed her in the emergency room.

In the clip posted to Instagram, Tammy admits: “I don’t remember any of it. Nothing. I completely blacked out.”

In a confessional, Tammy explains that she decided to go back to rehab nearly 10 months ago, after weighing the most she ever had: 717 lbs.

“I was here maybe less than 30 minutes, and my oxygen levels dropped. I had to be taken to the hospital. They put me in a medically induced coma,” Tammy explained.

The reality star has since spent nearly a year turning her life around and now, looks completely unrecognizable.


Tammy’s new husband, Caleb Willingham, recently shared a video of her hard at work in the gym.

In the TikTok video, Tammy, 36, was seen in her wheelchair sitting in front of an aerobic machine using her arms.

While hooked up to an oxygen tank, Tammy belted out a song performing the exercise.

Caleb captioned the video: “My ANGEL hard at work!”

Her weight loss is the culmination of a long journey out of addiction and rehab.

Last season on the show, 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 finale, she even stopped breathing for a time after a party bender.

A friend of Tammy’s exclusively told The U.S. Sun that the star gave up smoking and drinking entirely.

Though patients were allowed to go outside the rehab building to smoke, Tammy “didn’t even want to be around it,” her friend insisted.

The insider also claimed Tammy never had a single drink since she left for rehab.

That June, Tammy revealed she successfully underwent life-saving weight loss surgery.

The U.S. Sun exclusively shared the reality star lost enough weight for her bariatric surgery and is now even standing and walking.


Tammy attributes part of her success to getting support from her new husband Caleb.

Ahead of the season premiere, TLC teased the romance between the couple who found each other in rehab.

n the footage, the 1000-Lb. Sisters star broke the news to her sister, Amy Slaton, 35, in a phone conversation.

Tammy said: “I have started talking to somebody here in rehab.”

Amy assumed the worst: “Tammy being in a bad relationship again is like going back into our old way.”

While side-by-side, Tammy and Caleb posed for the camera as she announced: “We got great news to tell y’all.”

The couple initially met at the Ohio rehab center. 

After three weeks of dating, the duo got married at the weight clinic in November 2022. 

PEOPLE reported the reality star became Mrs. Tammy Willingham during a small celebration of about 30 friends and family members.

Though she seemed to disapprove in the trailer, Amy joined in on the celebration.

Previously, The U.S. Sun reported Tammy got engaged in October 2022 to her boyfriend.

In a video shared exclusively with The U.S. Sun, Tammy said yes to Caleb’s proposal at the parking lot of the rehab center.

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

The source added: “They have a lot of the same struggles that they can share. 

“They’ve been a huge support for each other [in rehab], which is awesome.”
