following: Stevens Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Diet
performance: losing 1.6 lb a week

I've been up and down the diet scale all my life. My baby pictures show a HUGE baby but I was slender up until my mid teens when the weight battle began. In the past two decades I've lost my entire excess weight twice, but I regained it both times. I hit my top weight of 258 in February of 2013, and for a 5'3" woman, that was extreme. It was at that time I decided to have the bariatric sleeve gastrectomy. I had to delay the surgery until December, and as of Feb 4, 2014, have lost almost 50 lb. (some before the surgery). My main problem right now is getting in my water, since I feel full all the time, but I don't regret the surgery at all. It is changing how I look at food for the first time in my life, which I believe will prevent me from regaining once I've lost the weight.

Starting dieting with stress and depression.
You may want to think about talking to a professional about your depression. A psychologist can help you fight the depression and motivate you to begin your diet. He or she can also make a determination to see if medication would be helpful to you, and would advise you to see a psychiatrist for prescription, but you may never have to go that extra step. In the mean time, treat yourself like you would treat your best friend. Be kind to yourself. And, you are not responsible for other people, so if your family does not want to join you in your new endeavor, don't judge them but just do your own thing. Make your health and well-being a priority.

I did HCG injections a few years back. Very expensive. I lost my weight, but once I stopped, I gained all the weight back and then some. For permanent weight loss, there needs to be a permanent change in your eating habits, and shakes and HCG is not the way.

Hey Grace! I have the same issue. I'm 60 and living in FL, so going out is not an issue but I can't seem to get motivated. I'd be happy to buddy with you!
