Then Amy meets Tammy to do a workout together, and asks about Phillip.
“We broke up,” Tami told her. “I guess you could say I did, because I was tired of fighting with him and he said my insecurities were my problem. And like, at the beginning of the relationship I told him, I was like, ‘Can you promise ‘I’m going to help me get over my fears.'” He said it must be too much.”

In an interview, Tammy said that she is sad about the breakup.
“I’m very quick to trust, and that’s one of my flaws,” she says. “So in the long run, I end up in really bad pain, really bad.”
Amy suggests to her sister that breaking up might be a good thing.
“He tells him you’re insecure and other things, maybe that should be his motivation to be, like, working on your inner demons,” Amy says.
“I have an inner demon?” Tammy asks, puzzled.
“Yes, your food addiction is inside you, your insecurities are in you,” Amy says, adding that Tammy needs to lose weight before her next visit to her bariatric surgeon, Dr. Eric Smith. “Now that your appointment with Dr. Smith approaches, you have to show some real progress, so you have to do it every day. Even when I’m not around.”

Amy said in a separate interview that she hopes her sister can focus on losing weight now that their relationship is over.
Amy says, “Tami told me she broke up with Phil, and I’m like that damn time. Now you need to work on yourself. Tammy doesn’t need someone who wants her to be voracious.” “Hopefully with the complete breakup, it doesn’t deter Tammy from losing her weight, because she needs to lose 25 pounds. The doctor gave her a goal.”
