    Actually those are reported cases of sexual abuse. The actual statistics are likely worse as boys don't tend to report abuse.

No offense is intended to those who were watching it regularly. I understand that she has other issues in her life but wasn't it supposed to be about weight loss? I just don't get it! And I think she is annoying too. Does she still talk in the baby voice? I was hoping to see a regular-sized Ruby by now.

    She lost a lot of that before the show started. That before pic they keep showing was at her heaviest but we did not see her that.

    I haven't seen her working at all. Did anyone mention how she can afford all of these specialists? Does she work? Inheritance? Anything?

    I'm sure she's making a nice bit of cash from Style Network. The show is pretty successful.
    Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov

    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

    How did she support herself before this show? Hard to find a job at 700 pounds.

    If I remember correctly from the early episodes, she received disability payments. Once she started getting paid for the tv show, those probably stopped.

    I am almost tempted to watch and episode of the show now based on the praise you all are giving this show. But every time I reach for the remote, I hear her voice in my head squealing "Denny."

    I dont watch but keep up here. I hope she will lose weight and realize that laboring over her past will only hold her back. I am a therapist so don't go crying foul. The past is over, time to embrace the now. I am atypical in this field, I know, but I am far from alone. It is the future.

    With all due respect to your experience and credentials shoepie, I disagree. Whatever happened to Ruby is causing her such unbelievable pain and torture, that I think she HAS TO remember it and deal with it. This is about more than just her weight gain --- this is about the quality of her life. If you were watching the show you'd see that she is in total misery over this -- and she needs to heal. Once she remembers it and can deal with it, then, yes, perhaps at that time it will be time to let it go and move on, but not until then. Dr. Phil gave a very good analogy of what would happen if she did not deal with the root cause of her problem --- that it would be like trying to sink a beach ball in the water -- it would keep popping back up until the root cause was effectively dealt with.
