Sitting at home wearing a black vest and a gray cardigan, Tammy began the clip: “Hey y’all, excuse my hair, I’m fixing it, I’m getting it re-dyed.”
She then confessed that her speech was “hoarse” because she was sick.
Tammy opened up about her weight reduction on the reality TV program 1000-Lb Sisters as she started to unpack her box of Freezies.
“I’m glad y’all are seeing my transformation finally,” she said about halfway through.
“It bothered me at first. I was like… I wanted to scream and be like, ‘I am losing weight, what are you talking about?'”
Tammy, 36, continued: “It’s so hard keeping big secrets… because of our contracts, they want that wow factor in our show, so I wasn’t able to talk about my weight loss or getting married, really, it’s a long story.”
Tammy also discussed how her tastes have altered since her surgery in a video.
As she popped open another bag of freeze-dried candies, Tammy admitted: “I love sour food. I feel like after the surgery… it’s aired so I can talk about it now, but after the surgery, my whole freaking tastebuds kind of changed.
“I used to want more sweets, now I’m a savory girl, it’s weird,” she added.
TAMMY HITS BACK
Tammy fired back at haters who had a lot to say about her eating habits in another TikTok video.
As Tammy unwrapped a piece of candy, she said: “I know you all are gonna tear at me for eating more candy on camera, but Hakuna Matata,” referring to the famous line from Disney movie The Lion King.
Tammy’s TikTok followers flooded the video with compliments as one person posted: “F**k what people say – you’ve come so far, you enjoy that candy!”
Another simply said: “You are amazing girl,” while a third wrote: “I’m so proud of you.”

A fourth commented: “You look great. Keep it going,” and another fan wrote: “You go Tammy! Glad to see you.”
Someone else said: “Looking so good! Enjoy!!” and a different fan wrote: “you look great girl!”
Tammy has lost nearly 300 pounds since starting at her weight loss center.
Tammy now weights just over 400 pounds, according to The United States Sun, and is nearly half her height.
Tammy dropped a stunning 300 pounds in her fight against obesity after once weighing 700 pounds.
She went to treatment for the second time early last year 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.
In severe cases, bariatric surgery is a procedure on the digestive system to help a patient drop weight fast.
