Ruby

Does anybody watch Ruby on the Style Network? I haven’t really before and this weekend sat down to watch a few episodes. And I fell in love with Ruby. She seems so sweet and genuine, and is working so hard. She’s made big changes in her life and has lost tons of weight. The episodes I watched spent a lot of time featuring her struggles with staying on track, and I found that encouraging because despite her setbacks she is still having enormous success. It just goes to show that none of us are perfect and we shouldn’t expect to be perfect. It’s not diets but lifestyle changes that are going to make the difference: moving more, eating smarter, and learning how to beat whatever might derail our efforts.

I used to watch it, but my local cable network dropped the Style channel from basic cable. Recently I did catch a couple episodes, but the ex-boyfriend gets on my last nerve. :) Love Ruby, though!

I've never watched the show, but on your recommendation I'll give it a try. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

Can I just say that I totally heart Ruby? She's so cute! And she has different words for things-- like "hacky" (combination of happy and wacky).

She is very inspiring! What I love most about her is that she has lost a ton of weight and is still figuring it out!

I don't know the show but am totally in agreement with making lifestyle changes. I'm only just beginning to understand how my thinking sabotaged all my efforts in the past to get my weight under control and live a healthier life.

le sigh.
had to add that the husband DELETED MY RUBYS to make space on the DVR!
is that even allowed?

@rubyless, NO! tell him i said it's totally not allowed. of course i may have deleted some of my dearest's shows to make space for mine, so i can't say anything... :)

My husband deleted Ruby too and the biggest loser! I was so mad. He said he thought I already watched them.. so I missed the last couple of weeks ugh! After I threw a fit, i'm pretty sure he'll start asking before he starts deleting. :)
