Yes, I set it to record as soon as I saw a commercial for it. I like it and I like Ruby. She's so honest about her weight struggle and she is generally upbeat, and it's just inspirational.

Loved the show and loved her. I hope the show helps other people too and brings awareness to the trouble obese people have and how the world is so ill equipped to deal with the issue.

The show is on Sunday evenings at 8 pm ET on Style. (Check your local listings...lol)

Ruby made a comment that stuck with me. It was during a scene where they were showing her in her doctor's office. She couldnt find a chair that didnt have arms on the side, so she just wandered around in the waiting room. She finally asked the receptionist for a chair without arms, which she went to get right away.

I'm paraphrasing below...

"The world isn't made for people my size. It would be nice if we were accommodated more while we are working to get healthier and smaller."

I totally agree....

Jen, thanks for listing this. Otherwise, I would have never seen it! I am looking forward to following her through this journey, because perhaps I can learn some things from the show!

It is also repeated.

She's pretty! I love her outlook! I find it odd and rude that Jim's parents got a cat knowing he's allergic to them.

Gloria could get a bit of a clue in her cooking. I grew up in Pensacola. Both my parents were born in Georgia. I know southern cooking. However, after Daddy's first heart attack, Momma changed some of her cooking habits. In support of Ruby, Gloria could perhaps learn a bit and help her out.

Ok. Off my soapbox and raggin' on Gloria.

I'm looking forward to more episodes.

I'm in Calif. I'm looking at the schedule for my Dish network.

It's repeated today, Tues. at 5 PM, Wed. 7 AM and 8 PM, Thurs. 3 AM, Noon and 7 PM, Fri. 5 AM, 1 PM and 8 PM, Sat. 9 AM and 5 PM. For some reason, my schedule is showing episode 2 at 3 AM on Sunday and that is the one that is set to record. Hmmm.

I saw it last night and thought it was great! Really inspirational and I really want to see her succeed! She is soooo positive and definitely like a lot of you have mentioned, she says things that really stick with you and you may be able to relate to. I thought it was really awesome how her friend from LA is so supportive! Can't wait for the next episode!

I saw a commercial for it and it looked interesting. I may have to watch this now. Not sure my DVR can handle another show being taped LOL
