Ruby: The Story of a 500-Pound Woman

Ruby weighs 487 pounds. She doesn't know how she got that big, but she knows it is time to do something about all that weight before it kills her. A new reality TV series, bearing the eponymous title Ruby, is about the life or death story of this woman's struggle to survive. The show premieres this Sunday, Nov. 9, at 8/7c on the Style Network. To see a sneak peek, check out the video below.

I'm wondering how you feel about the concept behind this show and following an obese woman's weight-loss journey. Do you see it as an inspiration to live healthy, or is it degrading and insensitive to people with weight issues? It could be the Biggest Loser without all the game play. Are you going to tune in?
