Was just wondering if any of you have been watching this show? It is really a great one. Ruby is a super sized woman (over 400 pounds) who is trying to lose weight to save her life. I'm not sure if she already has diabetes or is prediabetic. Whateve the case, she is sure on a mission. She is really beautiful and lives in Savannah, GA. If you haven't seen it, you should give it a look see. It truly gives some insight on just how hard it is to diet with well meaning friends eating hearty while you crave what they have. It is on the STYLE channel on Sunday nights. Here is the link to the show site so you can see what I am talking about. Enjoy!!

Absolutely LOVE this show. At one time I was 300 lbs and I had a really hard time lossing the weight, I now weight 170 and am still trying to get that last 20 lbs to get to my BMI. I also wish that I had the diet that she has but I had to do that myself. I live in the boondocks and have to drive at least 15 miles to get to the nearest town with a grocery store, 35 miles to get to a health food store. I really think that Ruby will make it because she has such a wonderful spirit and a great support system. We sometimes forget that the people around us are as important to our success as ourselves.

I'm glad someone besides myself is watching. It is motivational. I wish I could go and be on that diet she is doing. It would sure make it easier for me if I could have someone fix my meals. I tend to nibble as I cook. NOT GOOD!!!

I found out if I brush my teeth or put a SF cough drop in my mouth when I cook , I can't really taste anything, so it keeps me from nibbling…Debe
