I hate myself. I gained 20 lbs in a freakin' year. I feel disgusting and ugly. I can feel the fat too, when I sit, walk, lay down. I feel it in my face. I cried half the day away after stepping on that scale. And my stupid hair just makes it worse, I look hideous with this stupid haircut. I honestly don't know why my fiance thinks I'm attractive. I feel like a fat old ugly bitch :( I just feel like giving up on everything.

Before you give up on everything. Try eating healthier and excercising. I'm not saying that to be rude. Just be proactive about your situation. The weight will keep adding on until you commit to a healthy lifesyle. You are not disgusting. No matter what you weigh, be good to yourself. Do your hair pretty. Do your makeup. Wear flattering clothes. But yea.... we all have those moments lik eyou are having right now.... it sucks, but don't get depressed. Get active. :)

Well why don't you do something about it instead of just crying about it? Your DF obviously still thinks you are attractive if he's still with you and tells you that you are sexy.
And please don't get mad at me, I do know what you are feeling. I have been right where you are. And I gained WAY more than 20lbs. I finally lost the weight and feel much much better. It's worth all the extra work to lose it. Eat healthy and in 6small meals instead of 3 large meals. Slowly increase your daily activity, try dancing while doing your cleaning and dishes. Start walking more. Add in easy toning workouts. It's really not that hard to lose weight, I spent years thinking it was hard until I actually did it.

I know exactly what you mean.  8 years ago I gained 60 pounds in only two months after an operation.  I fell into a huge depression and thought bad thoughts about myself all the time.  I stopped caring about myself.  Last year I decided I needed to do something.  Last I started taking Karate with my sons and it has changed my life.  You have the power to change your habits and be in control of how you think about yourself.  It doesn't happen quickly or overnight.  I wish you the very best.  You can do it!

Do you exercise? Start slow if you can, going for a walk after dinner really helps and it sets a good example for your kids. Cut out as much processed food as possible and just work on it. Its not going to happen overnight. Once you start exercising you will feel much better about yourself.

Dude, 20 lbs is not that bad. You can lose the weight. If you can afford it, join a gym and get a personal trainer for a few sessions to set yourself on the right track. If you can't afford that, get an exercise DVD. Or just run and walk a lot. Limit portion sizes, cut out soda (if you drink it). You can do this!!

 I lost 20 lbs in one month on the HCG diet.  It's not easy but it is effective and I didn't gain the weight back.
