ex-boyfriend who broke her heart. Along the way, Ruby seeks to inspire others to take the first bold steps towards a healthier and happier future.

Style's "Ruby" TV show is about Ruby Gettinger's genuine love of life, despite her struggle to lose weight. Even at her highest weight of 700 pounds, Ruby has never been afraid to go out—hanging out with friends, dancing or going to the movies—despite frequent disapproving stares and harsh comments by passersby. By sharing her positive and negative personal experiences and allowing viewers to come along on her weight-loss journey, Ruby hopes to help others realize that they are not alone and if she can do it, anyone can.

Viewers get to know Ruby's devoted friends and family—her nephew Jim, roommate Jeff and best friend Georgia, among others. They surround her constantly and adore her, but have inadvertently enabled her unhealthy eating and inactive lifestyle. Also figuring prominently in Ruby's life is the team of experts devoted to making her weight-loss dreams a reality, including the doctors and dietician who help her understand the ill effects of obesity on her body and her bad food habits; her trainer that gets her exercising; and the psychiatrist that helps Ruby confront her memory issues.

As Ruby struggles to lose weight and unravel the locked secrets of her childhood, viewers will be moved by her memorable and inspirational story.
