Amy Slaton has been working really hard to make sure that she meets the weight loss goal as she confesses that she wants to get the weight loss surgery done in order to turn her life around. Along with Amy, her sister Tammy Slaton also decides to take on this journey. 

To make sure that they are on the right path, Amy and Tammy decide to meet Dr Charles Procter, who advises the two to lose a certain amount of weight if they wanted to get approved for the weight loss surgery. 

Amy was advised to reach a weight of 375lbs or less if she wanted to get approved for weight loss but the same wasn't the case for Tammy. Since Tammy weighed heavier, she had to lose more. However, it was a challenge that the two were ready to take. Amy decided to change her diet and join a gym so that she could work on her weight loss. 

On the first day of the gym, Amy found it hard to catch her breath but at the end of it, she was pleased with how she pushed herself. Finally, the day arrived when Amy had to meet Dr Practor again. Amy was worried about her weight and prayed that she had reached the goal weight and could get approval for the surgery.

Fortunately, Amy hit just the right goal. Looking at the scales, Amy could not contain her happiness and broke into tears. She couldn't believe that she was finally going to undergo the surgery. Amy had stated that she wanted to lose weight to have a child and after the surgery's approval, Amy knew change was round the corner in her life. 

While it was good news for Amy, unfortunately, it wasn't the same for Tammy. She weighed 587 lbs and Dr Practor told her that she would have to lose more weight if she wanted to get approval for the surgery. He advised her to exercise more and eat healthy. While one Slaton sister is one step closer to changing her life, the other one has a long way to go. 

'1000-Lb Sister' airs on Wednesdays at 10 pm ET on TLC.
