She wants to get back on track with her weight loss, and starts the process by entering a charity baseball tournament with Denny, Georgia and Jeff.

Plus, she comes to realize she may have few precious moments left with her mom--and she doesn't want to waste them, so she sits with her to have a heart-to-heart about her past. Then, Ruby calls Reverend Paula White in hopes of finally conquering her missing childhood memories. watch
