I don't know how serious you feel your depression is, it's not unusual to get bummed out during the winter months, I sure feel it. The holidays are hectic, can be exciting and fun, then post holidays the bills come and it's back to the routine of life. I battle it by trying to pamper myself just a little bit more, don't let myself get too tired (I know that's easier said than done sometimes). Maybe even try something fun and new.

I'll add that when we got back from a 2 week trip last May, I had such a hard time getting back into the eating and exercise routine. I would do it just enough not to really gain (I gained 5 lbs overall), but not enough to keep losing. The mental aspect of weight loss game can be tough for me, especially if I start to overthink it. I do best when I have a routine and just stick to it. Hope that helps.
