Tammy Slaton is still loving her diet sodas even after getting weight loss surgery.

On Thursday, the 1000-Lb. Sisters star posted a couple photos of herself drinking a bottle of Diet Coke, joking on her Instagram Story about her love for the soda even after her dramatic weight loss.

"LOL I am a diet soda ambassador," the 36-year-old wrote.

In the comments section, fans expressed concern for Tammy and warned that too much soda could make her regain the weight she's lost.

"Remember diet sodas do not cancel out the sugar 💀💀💀please make better decisions," one person wrote while another follower added, "You're not suppose to drink soda after having bariatric surgery! That weight will pack on again smh 🤦🏻‍♀️."

Other followers didn't see the drink as harmful, telling critics in the comments, "Everyone can have a cheat day, leave her alone and let her live her life."

In the latest season of 1000-Lb. Sisters, viewers have gotten an inside look at Tammy's transformation while at the weight loss rehab facility in Ohio. In one episode, Tammy achieved her weight loss goal — she needed to drop from 717 lbs. to 550 lbs. in order to qualify for weight loss surgery, and, much to her excitement, she made it down to 534 lbs.

"When I got on the scale and I saw the scale was at 534.7, I kinda stopped breathing for a second," she said during the Feb. 7 episode. "I'm like 14 lbs. under my goal weight. From over 700, that's a huge drop."

Tammy added, "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!"
