ruby.

I love Ruby. She is a spectacular person with such a welcoming personality.
She has a show on the Style Network documenting her weightloss journey. She started out at over 400 lbs and has lost 104 lbs in 7 months with a strict diet and exercise. Amazing.
She is an inpiration to me. I get discouraged when I think of the amount of weight I want to loose and she still has a goal of loosing more than I weigh now. She gives me the motivaton to keep on truckin' and finally overcome this battle I've been fighting for as long as I can remember.

Here is an exerpt from her most recent blog post...

Hi, y'all!
It is the finale for the first season, and yes, I will let you follow along my journey till the end. Can you believe it? In seven months, I have lost 104 pounds! That averages out to be about 14 pounds a month; that is 1 pound every two to three days. YAY! I am hacky wacky about it. I still have over 200 pounds more to lose! WOW!
But I am determined to win for me and you! It is the hardest battle of my life. But this is the battle for my life. For the first time, I really got it! I really got it that this was killing—and will kill—me. It is not only about the weight, y'all, it's what having 10 to 100, to 200, to 300 extra pounds will do to you. The scary thing to me, even knowing this, is that I have to fight to beat this. This is an addiction!
Check this out for more info.
Now get down with your bad self and get all hacky wacky. :)
