Tammy's family enthusiastically welcomed and supported her for her big day as she exits the rehabilitation center.
As she gets ready for her weight loss surgery, Tammy Slaton is receiving a poignant send-off. In an exclusive preview of Tuesday's installment of 1000-Lb Sisters obtained by PEOPLE, the 36-year-old is leaving to undergo bariatric surgery, a goal she's been working toward. Tammy was welcomed enthusiastically and supported by her family on her big day as she exits the rehabilitation center.
"I am nervous for Tammy. Anything could happen during surgery," Amy Slaton, sister, and co-star said. "I couldn't picture a life without my sister," she added.

In the video, Tammy leaves the building and is startled to see her family and friends congregated outside with banners and confetti. The family displayed a sign with the words "Go, Queen Tammy! You did the damn thing." She acknowledged that the kind gesture would cause her to weep. "They had a poster for me to read that everybody wrote a little something on there to celebrate me. I mean, b—s this is about me at the end of the day because I'm queen," Tammy says with a laugh.
Before she left, Tammy had the opportunity to meet Glenn for the first time since Amy gave birth to her second child. "Finally get to hold the little bear. That's what keeps me going," she says. "When I get home, I'm babysitting both Gage and Glenn. They're gonna be Aunt TT's boys," Tammy said, laughing.
Without the help of her family, Tammy said she wouldn't have been able to achieve her weight loss goals. "I really do appreciate everybody coming. I needed them. I needed to know that they love me no matter what," she said before starting to cry. "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," she said, overwhelmed with emotion.
Amy Slaton, the 1000-Lb Sisters star, 34, recently shared that she welcomed Glenn Allen Halterman, her second child with husband Michael. The reality star's baby boy was delivered by c-section on July 5 and was 5 lbs., 11 oz., and 17.5 inches long at delivery. "The wait is finally over ... Michael and I are happy to announce the birth of our son, Glenn Allen Halterman," Amy shared with PEOPLE. "The delivery was a huge success and now I have both of my miracle boys; our family is complete," she added.
