How many of you watch the show Ruby? It comes on Style Network. When I watch the show I have mixed feelings and reactions. At first I refused to watch Ruby because I felt that by doing so I was joining in on exploiting her during her weight-loss journey. I honestly thought that people would just make fun of her and I didn't want to be a part of that. However, I've caught a few episodes and I have to say that I love Ruby. I love the show and I love her. I wish I had her courage to face things like she does. And let me tell y'all that all too many times I've related with her.
Those of you that don't read my blog or follow it I've faced weight problems all of my life. And there are things that Ruby says that really hit home. So if y'all haven't seen Ruby I highly recommend you watch it. She truly is inspiring and not to mention funny.

I've watched 1 or 2 episodes and really liked the show. She is just too cute in her Southern ways! Stopping by from SITS and wanted to say hi.

Jen said...

Unfortunately we don't get the style channel so I haven't seen it! I have seen her on Oprah a couple of times.

Ha, I noticed that you were after me. I've totally messed up. I didn't put my URL. Oh well.

Hi Patty, you were actually the one I was meant to share with but Jen just squeezed in so I will have a look at you both - lovely blog BTW. Hmm I am not sure if we can get Ruby down under. I will have a look.

I love Ruby too!

She's funny, real, and just you want so much for her to get what she wants.

I felt the same way too in the beginning :)

Sorry I've been away from your blog so much to do this summer and so little time for me and the computer :)

I have never seen or heard of that show, but I will have to check it out!

OMG-I love that show! Her personality is so endearing and charming, you can't help but root for her! I'm totally hooked! I too think she's so brave and real and it's really refreshing to see that on a reality show.

I too have struggled with weight. Four years ago I had back surgery and gained 90 pounds! It's been such a struggle to get it off, especially since I am limited to the types of physical activity I can do. But I am happy to report that I've lost a total of 13 pounds this summer. Even though I'd prefer to lose it more quickly, I recognize that slow and steady wins the race!

Have a wonderful day!
