My 600-lb. Life features a lot of memorable stories, but Tammy’s journey stood out from the rest because of her attitude, and strong desire to change. She took her opportunity with Dr. Now seriously, and wanted nothing more than to start living life to the fullest. She was tired of her weight holding her back, and wanted to put the discomfort (and feeling of being trapped in her body) behind her. The mother of three was sick of relying on her family to help her. She wanted nothing more than to be independent.

Tammy’s journey was touching from the very beginning, as she faced challenges and obstacles, but didn’t use them as an excuse to justify her actions, or remain in a negative situation. Tammy successfully turned her bleak circumstances into a story of empowerment, hope, and strength. She proved to herself and others that with enough hard work and dedication, it’s possible to change. Now, she’s reaping the rewards of staying the course, and not giving up on herself.

Tammy’s story didn’t end after My 600-lb. Life aired, and she’s continually trying to make good decisions. She’s far from the defeated woman she was on television. In fact, she’s brimming with self-confidence that she never had before. Seeing Tammy stick to her goals and live life independently is not only motivating, but inspirational.
