I am very embarassed with myself lately I have gained 12 lbs I dont have a job. Darling Husband supports us. Tonight I was doing Wii fit and he saw my weight, he did not say anything but he knew that I got embarassed and i broke down. He said he is not embarassed by me and I am still beautiful. I guess I was just lying to him about my weight because I didnt want to believe it myself. I feel guilty that I dont have a job im trying to find one but its hard to in the area that I live, I busted my butt in college to graduate and now I cant find a job. Im sorry that I am just complaning here, I guess I just need to vent. I feel like a failure, I dont know what to do. I am so embarassed by myself.

@kfraztobe: Until you can find a job, start volunteering. It sounds like you’re questioning you’re worth, which is silly, but easy to do when you’re feeling low. There’s nothing like volunteering and helping out where you’re really needed to make you feel a bump up in your worth.

Aww , I’m so sorry you are going through this! its hard enough being inbetween jobs, then to have the added societal pressure of wieght. That is just a number, and has nothing to do with beauty or self worth! Trust in your husband and what he says about you!
As the PP’s mention, if you can afford the gas and can get out- do some volunteering! Get out and about to keep your mind off the little things that we tend to over focus on.
Stay strong, you are an amazing women – inside and out!

Also , just wanted to say you are not alone. I worked my but off to get a college education and have gotten rejected from every job I applied for. Its almost been a year! I’m now getting certification as a CNA ( nurse assitant) so I can start some work in a field that has high demand and gives me some flexibility!
I also wen’t off my birth control during this time and gained 20 pounds in one month…talk about sticker shock! My husband has no idea, and thinks I am beautiful, just like yours.
Everything will work itself out, I promise!
