Tammy Slaton is on fire, folks.

Over the past few months, this TLC personality has checked off one bucket list item after another, as Tammy’s impressive weight loss journey has enabled her to accomplish goals she never previously believed to be possible.

Yes, these goals may seem mundane to the average individual.

But, no, Slaton had not been able to sit comfortably before in the front seat of a car.

Also, no: Tammy had never before been to the beach.

These are tasks most people take for granted; but most people did not once weigh over 700 pounds.

On the next all-new episode of 1000-Lb. Sisters, meanwhile, Tammy will continue to blow both herself away and her loved ones away, as well.

In this latest case? She’ll take her first plane ride. EVER!

In a confessional shared ahead of the installment airing by E! News, the reality star recalled feeling scared before the flight, saying to the camera:

“Getting on the plane, I’m shaking.”

She’s joined by siblings Misty and Amanda, however, who are on hand to offer their full emotional support.

To ensure her safety and comfort, meanwhile, Tammy actually bought an extra seat in the coach section of the airplane… as she feared being unable to fit into just the single one that can accommodate most air travelers.

Alas, however?

“When I actually got on the plane and sat down and was comfortable, I was kind of surprised that I didn’t need both seats that we paid for.”

Goal number-one was therefore accomplished.

Then the plane took off, though. And turbulence hit. And Slaton had to brace herself for some major bumps in the air.

“I was cool until we actually started lifting off,” she says in this sneak peek.

“My family forgot to mention some stuff about the plane ride. The turbulence was really bad. Once I was able to compare to things I’ve already done, like riding in a car or going over train tracks, I was golden.”

Slaton has lost over 300 pounds since we first met her on this program.

She’s residing in Kentucky these days, having completed a successful stint in an Ohio rehab center.

“We made it! Safely!” Tammy will exclaim on the episode after the plane touches down in Florida. “I’m alive!”

“It’s pretty cool being able to share a victory with my family,” she later admits in another confessional. “I’m ready for another one.”

1000-lb Sisters airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on TLC.
