During this week’s episode of 1000-Lb. Sisters, Tammy Slaton spent a little time educating the viewers at home. It was shortly after a phone call with her married boyfriend, Jerry Sykes.
SSBBW: Tammy Slaton explains the lingo
After the phone call, Tammy revealed Jerry had plans to come visit her. Amy Slaton admits she was surprised to learn this. It had been over a year since the last time Tammy saw Jerry. And, Amy didn’t believe he would be coming back around.
The episode cuts to Tammy and she reminds fans she’s been dating Jerry for a few years now. Turns out, she met him in a fan group for BBW. She proceeds to explain it is an acronym that stands for Big Beautiful Women. She joined groups dedicated to people who either are BBW or have an interest in them. Turns out, this is how she met Jerry.
Tammy Slaton, however, felt the need to clarify. She did belong in the group. But, she was not a BBW. She was actually a SSBBW. Fortunately, she proceeds to explain the difference for those who aren’t familiar with the lingo.
SSBBW stands for super-sized big beautiful woman. According to Urban Dictionary, there are some differences between the two. A woman who weighs over 200 pounds is considered a BBW. And, a woman must weigh over 400 pounds to be considered a SSBBW.
Naturally, there are some people who argue just being over 200 or over 400 pounds does not automatically put you in the club. These labels are intended to describe women who have physically appealing features or cute faces despite being severely overweight.
Fans think she needs to ditch these dating groups
Fans of 1000-Lb. Sisters do not like Jerry. They think he comes off as creepy. And, they think he’s in the relationship for all the wrong reasons. Some even suspect he just wanted to be on television. Moreover, fans don’t think Tammy Slaton joining groups for BBW and SSBBW to find a significant other is in her best interest. The argument is that Tammy finding someone to be with her despite her size will enable her to remain that size. Fans think she needs to focus on losing weight. Then, she can worry about finding someone to be with.
Either way, fans do adore her confidence in herself despite her size!
