I dont know anything about depression really, but if you can try to separate your depression and your weight concerns, that might help. What i mean is, dont let them be connected, when youre depressed, dont eat to feel better, do some exercise (that will most likely trigger feel good endorphins) or even get lost in a good book. Youre goals sounds great, and totally reasonable, and if you work slowly but surely at them, there is no reason why you should be your target weight one day!! Good luck!

WELL great job with loosing 20 lbs. The good thing is that you only gained 5 lbs!!! You and no one else could even notice. I used to gain and loose 5 lbs in a day! Dont be sad or depressed. Just think what youll look like and feel like one you do reach your goal!
