She’s dropped from 717 pounds to 534 pounds.

“I’m like 14 lbs under my goal weight.
“From over 700, that’s a huge drop. I’m feeling thrilled, proud, excited… just all the emotions.
“I proved everybody wrong. Everybody that doubted me, I finally got mine! My told-you-so moment!”
Thanks to her weight loss journey, Tammy has achieved a significant milestone – she can now walk independently and has been spotted taking walks.
Previously, she relied on a wheelchair for mobility.
However, before experiencing this success, Tammy faced a challenging situation as she spent time at a food rehabilitation centre.
During her stay, Tammy’s health took a turn for the worse, and she was rushed to the hospital after she stopped breathing.
She was put on a ventilator and placed in a medically induced coma.
Despite her body ‘shutting down’, Tammy managed to recover and continue her rehabilitation and weight loss journey.
Tammy has been open about her hospitalisation and the near-death experience, sharing her perspective with People magazine.
She mentioned undergoing surgery, strengthening her lungs, and eventually being able to have her tracheostomy tube removed.
She also revealed that her doctor recently cleared her to be off the oxygen machine during the daytime, wearing it only at night along with her BiPap machine.
Tammy monitors her oxygen levels throughout the day and keeps her machine nearby in case she needs it.
Tammy said: “I’m feeling great! I’m thankful to be alive, and it’s fun to be progressing as much as I am.”
