I'm terrified my baby will be fat – he's like a bottomless pit and eats more than I do, it's scary

Amy Slaton, star of the reality series 1,000-Lb. Sisters, revealed one of her biggest fears when it comes to her baby boy: his weight.

The 34-year-old from Dixton, Kentucky always wanted to have children with her high school sweetheart-turned husband, Michael.

But as a woman who was at the time over 400 pounds, she was advised to lose weight before getting pregnant.

Once she had shed enough pounds to undergo gastric bypass surgery for additional weight loss, she began trying to conceive.

Less than a year later, she and her husband welcomed their son Gage in November of 2020.

In the third season of the TLC show that she shares with her sister Tammy, Amy opened up about her baby boy and the struggles of parenting.

“Gage is a very well-mannered baby, but I'm noticing that he's like a bottomless pit sometimes,” she said to her husband in the candid episode.

“He eats more than I do, and it's scary because I don't want him to be 600 pounds. I do not want him to be fat.”

She wants her son to avoid the path that she herself went down and hopes his fate will be different.  

“My son means the whole world to me, so I want what's best for him. I don't want him to struggle like me and Tammy did with our weight,” she said during her confessional.

“I want him to be a normal, healthy weight so he [never has] to worry about the bullies at school or anything like that.”

Sitting down with her husband in the vulnerable scene, she shared the hardships she faces while trying to raise her son.

After losing 140-pounds—going from 400 to 260—she feels insecure about the changes she sees in her body:

“Sometimes when we go places like to the park or something, I'll get so [worn] out because I'm carrying around so much excess skin,” she said. “I don't want to be a parent who has to sit on the sidelines because they hurt too much to do it.”

Although she wants to keep shedding to reach her goal of 150 pounds, the extra skin is making it harder for her to stay motivated.  

“There is so much excess skin, and it does make it harder for walking, so my weight is plateauing,” she said.
