Where Is Amy From 1000-Lb Sisters Now?

Kentucky native Amy Slaton became a household name as the co-star of TLC's "1,000-Lb. Sisters," which chronicles the weight loss journeys of her and her older sister, Tammy Slaton. Unlike the serious (and possibly-scripted) "My 600-Lb. Life," the Slatons' show is chock-full of hilarious moments as they openly discuss their farts, indulge in favorite treats like "sodies," and film comedic challenges for YouTube. Amy and Tammy first rose to prominence as YouTube personalities, and their following only grew when "1,000-Lb. Sisters" premiered on TLC in January 2020.

Over the course of the three seasons that have aired as of the time of writing, viewers have witnessed Amy and Tammy's respective journeys toward meeting their weight-loss goals. At the start of the series, both sisters had hoped to qualify for bariatric surgery. As of Season 3, Tammy has continued to struggle with making the lifestyle changes the sisters set out to achieve. Amy, however, qualified for bariatric surgery in the inaugural season. Ever since Amy has experienced much growth in her life.

Amy is achieving lifelong goals

As viewers have seen during Season 3 of "1000-Lb Sisters," Amy is doing extremely well as she accomplishes a number of dreams. Slaton fans know how much Amy always wanted to be a mother — something that was nearly impossible prior to achieving some of her health goals. Shortly after her surgery, Amy became pregnant with her son Gage, who she shares with her husband Michael Halterman. The couple welcomed their first child into the world on November 10, 2020. In January 2022, Amy announced that she's expecting baby number two, according to her Instagram

For some time, Amy and Michael resided in a small apartment directly next door to Tammy, who relied on them for nearly everything, from grocery shopping to transporting her to doctor's appointments. However, the space proved to be too tiny to accommodate a family of three, let alone four. Amy knew her growing family needed a "forever home" to call their own. During Season 3, fans saw Amy and Michael on the hunt for a suitable house. Additionally, Amy hired home nurse Tisa to assist Tammy and ease the transition of her eventual move. 

Of course, it's not all smooth sailing for Amy, who admittedly still struggles with her health issues, as well as a hoarding addiction. Still, it does appear that she has a lot of progress to be proud of.
