Tammy Slaton is back on social media creating buzz with a new set of selfies. The 1000-Lb. Sisters star has been in rehab as she works towards her goal of becoming a healthier version of herself.

Earlier in the year, she posted pictures showing off her more glamorous side complete with makeup and curled hair. This time, she’s back revealing a fresh, slimmer face with her hair in a simple ponytail.

The pictures also show the tracheostomy that is still present in her throat helping her breathe.

In the photos that were just posted this weekend, Tammy is looking refreshed, and her 115-pound weight loss is evident. While there was no caption attached to the post, she does appear to still be in the rehab facility.

The changes in Tammy’s face are clear in these photos when compared to her older social media posts. Fans are noticing a difference and took time to comment their support under her pictures.

From the beginning, despite some troublesome moments on the show, many fans have been rooting for Tammy and hoping she would choose to make a change in her life. Since the announcement of her going to rehab, the support continues to grow.

After a frightening medical incident that played out during the Season 3 finale of the show, Tammy stated she was willing to stay in rehab for up to a year. It looks like she’s committed to sticking to her word.

Tammy’s journey has not been easy

Sharing one’s life on national TV often makes one susceptible to receiving criticism from viewers. Tammy has not always made favorable choices regarding her health or how she’s treated her family, and fans never missed an opportunity to share how they feel about her.

She’s admitted that sometimes the comments online have hurt her feelings and made her upset. This often contributed to her depression which led her to overeating. While she does not blame viewers and online haters for her weight, she felt that it messed with her mental health.

Her depression became a major topic in Season 3 of the 1000-Lb. Sisters, when she finally opened up to Dr. Smith about how she was feeling. She admitted to using drinking and smoking to hide her emotions and ignore her problems.

Part of her decision to enter rehab was from Dr. Smith promising to ensure the facility had a therapist on-site to meet with her. The goal was to treat her mental health alongside her physical health.

Dr. Smith wants Tammy to be at least 550-pounds before he will consider approving her for weight-loss surgery. It appears she’s on her way to hitting that mark.

1000-Lb. Sisters is currently on hiatus.

Your the strongest one in your family and proved them all wrong through your horrific medical issues. Think of your future and all you will be able to do with out assistant or care. Take back your life and do the things that make your happy. Enjoy and make the best of it.

    • So proud of you tammy, you’re a pretty girl, and you’re gonna have a good rest of you’re life. Why people say you’re jealous of Amy, I’ll never understand. She’s nasty, disgusting, and dirty. In spite of all those negative comments, I’m proud of you. I wish nothing but the best for you. Just hang on, and keep making progress. G[d bless you!

  2. Tammy, congratulations on your hard work. I promise you, it’s totally worth it. I used to be a Big Girl. I had gastric bypass surgery in 1988. I lost from 429 lbs to 109 within about seven months. My whole life changed for the better. I have six children. I know in my heart I would’ve never lived to see them grown if I hadn’t had the surgery.

    Please do the work so you can have a long life too. Sending big hugs, and again, CONGRATULATIONS!

  3. Im a huge fan of the show & I love watching the family journey on how they made it & survived tough times. I wish Tammy well & much success on changing her life.But it bothers me that Tammy say peoples comments her feeling, yes peoples can be rude but how do Tammy think Amy, & Amanda feel when she’s rude, I’ve never heard her tell Amy thank you nor Amy’s husband for pushing her around. Treat peoples they way you want to be treated. Much success & work on your attitude.

  4. The tube limits what she can pound down her throat so of course she’s losing weight for now. I just hope she’s learning to clean herself and maybe make simple dishes so she’ll stop treating her family like slaves.
    She’s a nasty foul mouthed …..and I really don’t like her.
    Her family deserves this wonderful vacation from her selfishness.
