Summary

  • Amanda experienced a heartbreaking breakup after being ghosted by RJ, causing emotional turmoil.
  • Amanda had previously lost over 300 pounds through bariatric surgery but faced weight gain post-surgery.
  • Amanda’s struggles with love, divorce, and weight loss journey are highlighted amidst the 1000-lb Sisters series.



1000-lb Sisters star Amanda Halterman has lost a lot of weight since having bariatric surgery in March 2023, but now a devastating breakup threatens to derail her journey. The beloved series, which premiered in 2020, centers around the extraordinary weight-loss journeys of Tammy Slaton and Amy Slaton, but their sister, Amanda, has also lost some weight. Amanda didn’t appear on the show until season 4 because she was going through a divorce. Though she wasn’t on the show during the first few years, she has always been close to Tammy, Amy, and her siblings.

Amanda grew up with her siblings in Shawneetown, Illinois. Unlike her sisters, Tammy and Amy, Amanda didn’t struggle with her weight growing up; she was always the thin one. It wasn’t until after she got married and had four children that the 1000-lb Sisters season 5 star started gaining weight. After years of struggling, Amanda had her second bariatric surgery in March 2023, and she looks like a different person. She had found love again after her painful divorce, but that relationship ended in the most painful, heartbreaking way.

RJ Just Ghosted Amanda

It’s Not The First Time


In June, Amanda posted a TikTok explaining her boyfriend, RJ, had ghosted her completely. According to Amanda’s TikTok, she hadn’t seen him since May 1. He had left town to meet his family and he never came back. They were supposed to meet in Kentucky in late May but never showed. Amanda tried contacting him, but he wouldn’t respond. She also tried contacting members of his family whose numbers she had, and none of them responded to her either. He just disappeared without a trace.

During the clip, Amanda also reveals that this isn’t the first time RJ has ghosted her, though this time it has lasted longer.

The post has garnered 32.8K likes, and the caption reads, “#breakup #itisfinished accepting applications for my future husband.” She also explained that she had moved back to Kentucky and was staying with her sister and 1000-lb Sister star, Amy.

Will Amanda Stay On Track?

Her Second Bariatric Surgery


Amanda reportedly already had bariatric surgery for the first time in 2014, long before appearing on 1000-lb Sisters. Amanda lost over 300 pounds after the surgery but found herself gaining the weight back. In March, Amanda posted it was the first anniversary of her surgery, or “surgeversary,” where she looked dramatically thinner than when she first appeared on the show.

1000-Lb. Sisters season 5 features a scene in which Amanda and her other sister, Misty Wentworth, spoke to Tammy, Amy, and their brother, Chris Combs, about potentially undergoing weight loss surgery. “Me and Misty’s been going to see Dr. Smith,” Amanda tells her siblings. Dr. Smith was Tammy and Chris’s bariatric surgeon. During the discussion, the Slatons discuss their fears about the weight loss procedure, which can include complications and death.

Since Tammy, Amy, and Chris have all undergone the surgery, they understand that the procedure can be very dangerous.


Thankfully, Amanda and Misty made it through the surgery with flying colors. Though it’s not known how much weight Amanda has lost, she looks significantly thinner than before surgery. Though she’s hurting from her recent breakup, the 1000-lb Sisters star shouldn’t let it derail her from her weight loss journey.
