Dear Lara
Having 4 teaspoons of sugar per day which contain a total of 324 kJ (5,1%) of your daily energy intake will not hamper weightloss. The medication you are taking, also does not list weight gain as a side-effect. However, depression can hamper weightloss and/or cause weight gain. 2 weeks is a relatively short time for any diet or exercise programme to make an impact, so I would advise that you continue with the diet and longer cardio sessions (at least 1 hour x 3 per week)to see if you can lose those 5 kg. The closer you are to your ideal weight, the harder it can become to lose the last few kg.
Best regards
