Marianela Ruiz y de Teresa is a sweet, overweight girl. She graduates with honors from a private school and returns to Mexico to live with her mother, Eva Ruiz y de Teresa and begin attending a university. When her mother is killed in a helicopter accident, Marianela is sent to live with her uncle, Emiliano, and his wife, Fedra (Juna Felipa Perez), along with her cousins, Emmanuel, Kristel, Gretel, and Axel.

Fedra is a cruel, money-hungry woman who has always envied Eva and hates Marianela because of her weight and because of the money she will inherit from her mother. Marianela is treated horribly by Fedra, Kristel, and Ilitia; however Axel and Gretel are supportive of her and Emmanuel is kind to her and calls her "gordita hermosa." Emmanuel has always been Marianela's love interest since childhood. Over time, Emmanuel develops feelings for Marianela and notices that he loves her.

Marianela also has a very supportive aunt, Netty who is an actress, and friends, Brandon, Doris, and Oliver. Fedra schemes and steals Marianela's inheritance from her mother, with a forged will that names her the sole beneficiary of Eva's millions. Fedra tries to kill Marianela many times. She puts poison in chocolates that Emmanuel gives her and she plays tricks on her. Fedra is the one that killed Eva as well as her father. And Gretel saw the whole thing and is faced with the crisis that makes people believe she is crazy.

Emmanuel asks Marianela if she wants to marry him. She says yes and then tells their family. Fedra, Kristel, Axel, and Ilitia were against them getting married. Axel was against it because after an accident where he almost lost his life Fedra sabotaged him to make him hate Marianela, but everyone else was happy for them. Ilitia was Emmanuel's ex-girlfriend and is "in love" with him. She is so angry that she and Kristel play a prank to stop the marriage. When Emmanuel goes to work that same day, Ilitia plans a bachelor party for him. The workers and Emmanuel get drunk. While they are getting drunk, Kristel goes to Marianela and gives her a fake invitation to Emmanuel and Ilitia's wedding. While Kristel is trying to convince Marianela not to get married to Emmanuel, Ilitia sends the workers home. Emmanuel falls asleep and then she puts Emmanuel on the bed, takes his shirt off, then she takes her clothes off and gets on top of him. Kristel takes Marianela to Emmanuel's workplace; when Marianela sees them, she leaves crying. Marianela calls her aunt in Spain and tells her she wants to visit her. The aunt agrees.

Emmanuel goes to Marianela's house the following day and finds out she is leaving. He rushes to the airport and tries to stop her, but he couldn't because he arrives too late. Emmanuel goes outside and sees her plane take off. Two guys go behind him and kidnap him. They put him in a truck; there is no one driving the truck and he has an accident. When Emmanuel wakes up in a hospital, he can't move his legs. At the same time, when Marinela got to Spain she had to go to the hospital because she fainted. The doctor told her that she was being poisoned, and the person that did this knew that she could not resist. Marianela gave the chocolates to the doctor, and after examining them, said that the chocolates had poison. He also told her that she had to lose weight because being overweight could give her various health problems. Marianela believed Emanuel was the one who was poisoning her when in reality it was Fedra and Bernardo.

Marianela started to exercise and, at the same time, Emmanuel started therapy to walk again. Two years later, Marianela had lost all her weight and Emmanuel could walk once again. Emmanuel asked Ilitia to marry him, and after winning a race but is still in love with Marianela, Emmanuel announces that he and Ilitia are to get married. Back in Spain, Aunt Carlota gets ill. When they receive a phone call, Fedra flies to Spain to kill Carlota after making her sign papers to transfer her money to Fedra while Marianela was at a business trip with Jorge a man who says is deeply in love with her.

While Fedra is in Spain, Marianela returns to Mexico when she finds out Emmanuel is getting married with Ilitia. On her wedding day, Ilitia is raped by Mauricio Fonseca. Marianela goes to Netty's house but the only one there is Doris. She talks with her and she finds out that Doris is a makeup artist. She asked her if she could disguise her. Ilitia arrives late to her wedding. During the ceremony Marianela arrives but no one is able to recognize her (due to her weight loss and her disguise). During the party they ask her what is her name and she lies by saying her name is Victoria de la Garza. She went to the office of the house and there she finds her self with Lirio de Plata. He ties her up and robs the place then leaves and Emilano goes in and unties her before the police arrive. She tells Brandon she is friends with Marianela. The next day Brandon takes her to Netty's house. She stays at Netty's house and brings with her Gretel, who is disguised as Victoria's younger brother Manolo. "Victoria" gets hired by Emiliano to work in the family company. A short time afterwards, Victoria gets control of the family company by orders of Marianela. Later, Marianela falls in love with Lirio De Plata without knowing it is actually Emmanuel and she becomes pregnant. Ilitia is pregnant with Brandon's baby. She discovers the truth about the pregnancy while Emanuel finally understands why he feels as if he's in love with 2 women: Marianela and Victoria are the same person yet he acts as if he doesn't know. He makes Marianela fall in love twice like she did with him. Fedra is burned alive by Lorenzo. Brandon and Oliver shoot and kill Lorenzo. In the end, Kristel marries Jorge, but they get divorced. Gretel and Oliver get married and have 2 kids. Ilitia and Brandon have 4 kids. Emiliano and Netty get married as well. Axel and Delicia stay married and have a kid. And Marianela and Emmanuel get married and have 2 kids. She opens up a center for Childhood Obesity and names the center after her mother. They all live happily ever after, except for Kristel who can't seem to find Mr. Right.
