Your daughter will start noticing your weight and comparing it to other people. Young children are learning to see differences and similarities, categorize, and define. In a year or two she may even say or ask if you or someone else is fat. Talk to her about it and about how people look different for many reasons, etc, the same way you would handle a race, religion, of physical ability discussion.
I don't think you have to worry about her being embarrassed until she is a pre-teen and there is nothing you can do to stop the embarrassment then, your mere existence is enough (I was a middle school teacher and they are seriously embarrassed by everything about a parent- too fat, too thin, works out too much, dyes her hair, doesn't dye her hair, wear OMG MOM jeans, doesn't wear mom jeans and dresses too young, you name it some kid is embarrassed by it). Don't worry about that one, I was mortified that my mother would talk to people.
You can continue to set a good example. Exercise with her, play with her, encourage her in athletic opportunities as she gets older. Think about what she needs to be eating and eat it yourself. Focus on finding ways to get the minimum veggie servings in and work from there. I talk to my kids about nutrition and how veggies are so very important. Meat and carbs are important, too, but we need less of that than veggies. So we figure out ways that they will eat veggies. They like raw carrots, frozen peas (have to still be frozen), spinach tortellini, zucchini muffins (whole wheat, low sugar, lots of zucchini and apple sauce instead of the fat). We are working on it and trying to expand their menu. I can sneak veggies into sauces and smoothies, too, but I want them to know they are eating and liking the vegetable.
It will be fine. You are conscious of it, working on it, and it will all be fine.
