1000-Lb Sisters' star Tammy Slaton has been praised for now being able to walk alone after losing weight.
The reality star has been open about her battle with food addiction for some time, looking for help to shed the pounds.
And now, the 36-year-old has managed to reach her weight goal, having lost around 183lbs in recent months, dropping from 717lbs to 534lbs
Speaking of her incredible achievement, Tammy said in the latest season: "When I got on the scale and I saw the scale was at 534.7, I kinda stopped breathing for a second.
"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!"
As a result, she is now able to walk independently, and has been snapped going for a stroll.
Previously, Tammy had needed the support of a wheelchair to get around.
And after learning of her amazing progress, Tammy's fans have been vocal in their support, sharing messages on social media praising her for getting fitter and healthier.
Commenting on her post, one follower said: "So wonderful. U inspire me so much. I am trying again. I got sleeved in 2016 and have lost only 55 pounds of my 185 pound goal. I have 130 pounds to my goal. I am so happy for you."
Another said: "Boy, I doubted you. I'm so happy to see that you proved me and so many wrong! Keep up the great work."
"Not only do you look healthier, you look happier," put a third. "Great job Queen Tami, keep up the good work."
While someone else added: "@queentammy86 you are looking awesome and I'm so happy for you!!
"You remind me of a butterfly spreading her new wings for the first time and learning she can fly! Remember you are worthy!"
The news comes after Tammy wowed fans by sharing a video of herself sitting in the front seat of a car.
In the clip, she 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.
One proud fan wrote: "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.”
