Yes, I have DEFINITELY been through that whole thing, and have been battling depression for a while as well.
What luddy says, I totally agree with.
I'd like to add, you might also be feeling unmotivated because you're overwhelmed at the idea of having to move the number on the scale? I think if you move your focus from number of pounds to feeling better, you might get the psychological kick-start you need. In other words, maybe start making changes, little by little, that simply make you FEEL better (eating some fruit instead of dessert, getting enough sleep, cutting out soda and drinking water instead, taking a walk after dinner). That might make getting into health/diet mode a little easier and get you over whatever's holding you back. Also, you'll probably start losing weight that way without consciously trying, especially at first.
To total self-improvement, mind, body, and soul: Getting healthy, hot, and wise!
