Our expert says:
It is possible that your depression is causing your weight gain and making it hard to lose weight. Depression is well know for its potential to cause pronounced weight gain. So you need to ask yourself if there are other factors in your life besides the weight gain that are making you depressed (personal problems, emotional problems, homesickness, etc). If you have such problems you need to get some professional help from a clinical psychologist who will help you to come to grips with them and if necessary, refer you to a psychiatrist if you require medication. I don't know how this works in the UK, but you must be able to get some assistance either from a private psychologist or someone on the NHS. Until you address the depression you may find that your attempts to lose weight do not produce results. Your diet sounds reasonable (it just needs the addition of 2-3 servings of fat-free milk or yoghurt) and should cause weightloss. Make sure that your exercise regimen concentrates on cardio or aerobic exercise (jogging, cycling, brisk walking, skipping) so that you use more energy. However if you originally weighed 34 kg (can this be correct?) then you may also be suffering from an eating disorder which once again requires assistance from a psychiatrist or psychologist.
So please get that help ASAP before you ruin your entire life
