Ruby is trying hard to save her life and deserves praise, not ridicule for doing so.

kills me how they add how she smells. Like .. because she can't fully scrub every inch of her body she might have an odor.. cause over time areas start furmenting causing a molding hue... almost like a damp basement ... thank goodness for masking purfumes !! HOOORAY

Loyal viewers know that Ruby is below 400 pounds with her eye on going below 350 very soon.

I tried watching her show a few times, but then gave up. What she's doing is hard work and inspirational, but wow, she was annoying. Her voice was like nails on a chalk board to me, so whiny, and she seemed very babyish and helpless. I wish her luck, but I won't be watching.

While I commend anyone's efforts to drop weight, Ruby and others like her will not be successful if they don't drop the behavior and victimization that got them to where they are right now. Losing 100 pounds is something to be proud of however when I see clips of her telling her trainers that 'something is not connecting', I want to scream. Here is the connection, get on the treadmill, stop your whining and nut up.

Really?    

#12...her knees were hurting her. At some point, you have to say "This is my body...and something isn't right." Her trainers shouldn't have gotten territorial and defensive. They should've listened to the advice of her physician! The trainers were soooo annoying in that episode. It's like they care about having her money (as a client) but don't care about the best thing for her health. Everyone knows that you shouldn't let a routine stay the same for too long anyway.

i'm certain the woman who made the remark about ruby smelling amazing was not making it as a slam to her! she probably had a great scent on and was being complimented on it. ruby has always been a beautiful woman not matter what her size!
