TLC viewers have heaped praise on 1000-Lb Sisters star Tammy Willingham as she’s finally able to sit in the seat of a car again following her dramatic weight loss.
The 36-year-old reality star, who appeared on the show alongside sister Amy, has managed to drop an incredible 183 lbs and took to TikTok to show that she can now sit in a car seat. You can see the clip here:
In the video, Tammy can be seen smiling and mouthing along to music before switching the angle of the camera to reveal that she’s sitting in the car and safely strapped in - something she hadn’t been able to do prior to undergoing bariatric surgery.
The clip has been ‘liked’ almost 25,000 times and she’s been flooded with praise from her ‘proud’ fans.
One person said: “Seeing Tammy being able to sit in a car seat is so amazing," while another said: “I’m so happy to see you in a seat girl. You look amazing.”
While a third commented: “Look at you in the seat! So proud of you!”
Someone else wrote: “Tammy in a seat! Yessss! Major victory.”
Tammy has been keeping her fans up to date with how things are going following her surgery as her weight continues to fall.
In order to qualify for the life-changing surgery, Tammy was told she’d need to slim down from 717 lbs to 534 lbs.
Speaking on an episode of 1000-Lb Sisters, she revealed she’d managed to hit her target.
"When I got on the scale and I saw the scale was at 534.7, I kinda stopped breathing for a second," she said.
"I'm like 14 lbs under my goal weight. From over 700, that's a huge drop. 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!"
Tammy’s weight loss journey saw her spending time at the Windsor Lane Rehabilitation Center in Gibsonburg, Ohio, for treatment.
The reality star even got married to her Caleb Willingham at the facility last November, with the nuptials set to air on an upcoming episode of the show.
In an interview with PEOPLE about her wedding, Tammy said: "I was so nervous sitting in the chair, getting my hair done and my make up done, seeing my family all dressed for my wedding.
"My brother pushing me down the aisle, seeing all my friends and family just looking their best. And then, seeing my husband and seeing how handsome he looked. It stopped my heart.
“And then the ceremony! Awesome! Everything! The vows my husband said. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding. Then the kiss sealed the deal - that was my husband!"
