I'm going to have to set the TiVo for "Ruby," a Style Network show about Ruby Gettinger, a Savannah woman who weighs almost 500 pounds.

Just reading about the show is eye-opening, as you discover how she has to navigate the world differently from the rest of us. She can't fit into airport bathrooms, so she takes Immodium D before she flies so she won't have to go. And she has to ask for chairs without arms in her doctor's office so she can fit into them. Wow.
