Slaton filmed herself lip-syncing to the song “Throw It!” by Spiffy The Goat, however, her followers were more shocked to see the location of the 36-year-old’s jam session, as she wasn’t able to fit in a car seat prior to her 300-pound weight loss.

Although Slaton still needed her nasal cannula to help oxygen enter her lungs, this was a major second step in her health journey after freeing herself from her wheelchair just a few weeks earlier.

The reality star was definitely feeling confident as she recorded herself listening to the sultry song — and even desirably bit her lip at one point while nodding her head along to the music.

Slaton's milestone moment comes after she underwent gastric bypass surgery in an effort to help her lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle.

Prior to the surgery, the wife of Caleb Willingham needed to drop down to 550 pounds from her highest weight of 717 pounds in order to qualify for the procedure.

At the time, she had been living at an Ohio based rehabilitation center, where she stayed for 14 months before reaching her weight loss goal and leaving the program to undergo the planned course of action.

The television personality was overcome by joy when she weighed in and realized she had surpassed the 550 pound mark and weighed in at 534 pounds.

"I did that! 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!" she exclaimed during a February episode of the TLC series.

Slaton's current weight is believed to fall just over 400 pounds.
