The TLC star struggles with depression, which also contributes to her weight gain. However, there is so much more to Tammy Slaton than her size.

Many fans wonder if Tammy Slaton has any other health conditions due to the large lump on her forehead. However, this bump is just a result of Tammy’s weight. It’s actually just a fat socket.
Tammy Slaton is part of the LGBTQ+ community
This season, Tammy revealed she’s a member of the LGBTQ+ community after coming out as pansexual. This season, she said she felt that “love is love” and that she would be open to dating anyone.
“I always thought I was bisexual, and then I started talking to one of my friends and she told me she was pansexual, and I asked her kind of what it meant,” Tammy said on the show. “It means you love everybody, not just the same sex. And I was like, ‘Well, I guess I am too,” because I wouldn’t mind being with someone who’s transgender, or whatever.”
Up until recently, Tammy was romantically involved with Jerry Sykes. The couple met online. Although they really seemed happy, Tammy’s friends, family, and fans had mixed feelings about Jerry. He seemed to enable her food addiction. Tammy’s brother Chris even pulled him aside in an episode this season to ask him to stop bringing her junk food.
What does the TLC star’s health look like these days?
Fans of the show have grown to care a lot about Tammy and her health. They really hope she will be able to stop her excuses and have a real breakthrough soon. Now that she and Jerry are no longer together, fans hope she will keep only positive influences in her life and will be able to overcome her food addiction battle.
Jerry and Tammy reportedly split up around Valentine’s Day.
Like many other Americans, Tammy Slaton had COVID-19 in the last few months. She was a high-risk patient because of her size. Fortunately, she recovered and is still working towards her weight loss journey today.
