I thought this week's focus on being honest with yourself was really interesting.

Liz- and i think she knows he will come running when she says "it's over." What's that saying 'it takes two to tango"? It's kinda sad to see because she is putting herself on the sidelines because of her size when it comes to men. So many over weight women really think they are not worthy when it comes to romantic relationships due to the size of their body. And while I'm on the true wagon, I'll tell ya it makes it hard when your a married person as well. There have been times when I'm really big and I didn't think my hubby would be interested in being physical with me. Heck, i didn't even want to be physical with me at a bigger size! haha! We've had to have those talks and it's so painful for me to go there. Maybe that's why I really feel for her.

I thought her comments about her relationship with food were right on, too.

Denny is hanging around again...I am very cynical about relationships so no one should pay attention to me, but it does seem to me that some people only want the people they can't have...and both of them seem in that category to me.

I found this week's episode really haunting - when Ruby talked about how her longest relationship was wth food, and how food 'never leaves you'.

The one thing that it really amazing is the she was over 700 pounds, lost lots of weight, and is still alive! I can't wait to see her in the 200's. I'm rooting for her every step of the way!!

I just started watching Ruby when I started to get serious about my weight loss journey, she really is an inspiring woman. To see where she has come from really makes you feel like you can do this.:smileyhappy:

I totally agree with you! I just really feel for her. There are so many layers to her issues. I hope someday she is able to reach down and find out what is at the root of it. I saw some clips from her mom and she also seems to be in a bit of 'la la' land for lack of better words. I've also wondered if I would have surgery some day. I have no idea what this body will look like -100 pounds. I'm in my early 30's but I'm not sure how well things can go back after being at a larger size for so long.
