The sisters appeared on the show because they knew that their health was in danger and they needed help in losing enough weight to be able to qualify for bariatric surgery to help them drop the dangerous weight.
During episode two of the show, Tammy tells weight loss specialist, Dr. Charles Procter about all of her health problems because of her obese state. "I have a bad gallbladder, high blood pressure, thyroid problems, gout. A whole bucket list.”
Both Tammy and Amy also have diabetes as well as anxiety from trying to lose weight on their own. It was so bad that is was a life or death situation. It was so bad that Tammy couldn't even walk around normally without the help of a walker and wasn't able to buckle her seat belt properly like everyone else without weight problems can.
