'Ruby': Old Letters Reveal an Early Food Addiction (VIDEO)

Old Letters on 'Ruby'Ruby Gettinger needs to lose weight or she will literally die. At one time weighing 700 pounds, she's come a long way but her weight-loss journey is far from over. On 'Ruby' (Sun., 8PM ET on STYLE), she finds some old letters. She assumes they're notes passed between friends during class, but they're more like journal entries she wrote to herself.

"Not one was a happy letter ... But then I thought they may be answers to something that I've been looking for from 12 years of my life."

She reads, "'Take me to a place where ... I am no longer an outcast and out of control with my addiction.' ... In a way I don't think anyone could help me, and not even myself," Ruby says of those high school days.

Food addiction is more serious than most people believe it to be. Ruby is an inspiration to everyone that is trying to beat addiction of any kind. Eating disorders are difficult to detect at first, and once it has gone too far, it is usually full-blown. Here is an informational guide on eating disorders: http://www.recoveryconnection.org/addiction-eating-disorders/
