THEY HAVE FACED BULLYING ONLINE

In 2017, Amy uploaded a video of herself on YouTube, in which she can be seen reading some of the cruel remarks she and Tammy have received from their haters.

TAMMY HAS SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS

As noted by TLC, "Tammy's limited mobility forces her to rely on Amy more than she'd like to, adding to the tension that already exists just from living under the same roof."

Tammy told Louisville Courier Journal that she has coped with two blood clots, pneumonia, and several operations. In fact, she was even being placed on life support before.

TAMMY ONCE TRIED TO COMMIT SUICIDE

Medical problems left Tammy with severe depression. In an interview with PEOPLE, she said that the isolation she felt became overpowering that it brought her to the brink of ending her own life.

Eventually, the experience convinced her that the time had come to make big changes in her life. She admitted, "I had a feeling that if I didn't make changes now, I wasn't going to live past 35."

AMY WAS OF AVERAGE WEIGHT

Amy told Louisville Courier Journal that she turned to food to cope with grief after her beloved grandmother passed away. According to the star, her weight was average until around age ten.

COMMITTED TO THEIR WEIGHT-LOSS JOURNEY

Tammy and Amy hinted to PEOPLE that they have been paying attention to their goal to become healthier. The sisters have taken out sugar from their diets and settled on a favorite form of exercise.
