"I proved everybody wrong. Everybody that doubted me, I finally got mine! My told-you-so moment!" said Slaton.
Social media is full of videos and pictures of weight loss. It is because losing weight is difficult. It requires determination and effort. Tammy Slaton's weight loss journey also reveals this as she is giving followers a look at her impressive weight loss in new photos on Instagram. The 1000-Lb. Sisters star, 36, shared nine photos on Instagram on March 6th, and the captionless post attracted appreciation and encouragement from her followers and fans of the TLC show, reported PEOPLE.
"I think I speak for everyone when I say WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU 👏," one follower wrote on Slaton's post. Another shared their emotional reactions to her journey on this season of the TLC show, writing, "Omg Tammy you look amazing! And no more trach! I have cried on every episode this season! You freakin' did it, girl! I am so proud of you!"
"Tammy I am so proud of you! I always knew you could do it 💗," another follower wrote. "You look great and we can tell you're genuinely happy. I look forward to watching you transform into who you're meant to be!"
Slaton had not posted on the app since her last post on February 14, which was her first since March 2022. In the latest season of 1000-Lb. Sisters, we have seen her recent marriage to Caleb Willingham, who she met at a rehab facility in Ohio and left her "speechless" after his surprise proposal. Slaton also achieved her weight loss goal in a recent episode — she needed to drop from 717 lbs. to 550 lbs. in order to qualify for weight loss surgery, and, much to her excitement, she made it down to 534 lbs.
"When I got on the scale and I saw the scale was at 534.7, I kinda stopped breathing for a second," Slaton said during the February 7 episode. "I'm like 14 lbs. under my goal weight. From over 700, that's a huge drop." She added, "I'm feeling thrilled, proud, excited — just all the emotions. I proved everybody wrong. Everybody that doubted me, I finally got mine! My told-you-so moment!"
At 534 lbs., Slaton is eligible and ready to undergo bariatric surgery with her surgeon, Dr. Eric Smith. We do not know if the operation has already taken place. In an episode that aired on February 28, she was lauded and celebrated by her whole family as she leaves the Ohio rehab facility to undergo the weight loss operation. "They had a poster for me to read that everybody wrote a little something on there to celebrate me," she said during the episode. "I mean, b—s this is about me at the end of the day because I'm queen," she added.
Her family's support made her emotional, and she admitted that she "needed to know that they love me no matter what" ahead of the surgery." She continued, "I needed to know that they're here for me. They love me. That's one of the biggest things to help push me through to get to where I am now."
Slaton's sister, Amy Slaton, was nervous as well as she anticipated the life-changing surgery Tammy had ahead of her. "I am nervous for Tammy," she said during the episode. "Anything could happen during surgery. I couldn't picture a life without my sister."
