if she is on antidepressents, its not all her fault. those things made my mom go from a size 2 to a size 22. no lie. she's off them now and down to a 12. so, acknowledge that and then speak to her doctor.
being fat is depressing (i find) and the mroe depressed you get the less you want to do so the more weight you gain...its an ugly cycle...maybe you could encourage her to exercise with you. idk.
please, though, let her know beauty comes in all sizes and shapes and that even if she doesn't think shes beautiful, out there somewhere, is someone who will think she is the most beautiful thing on the planet.
