Our expert says:
It is unfortunate that both depression and/or some of the medications used to treat depression, can cause weight gain. You need to discuss this weight gain with the doctor who is treating you because he/she needs to determine if the weight gain is due to the medication or if you are not being adequately treated and that the depression is causing the weight gain. Do not stop your medication without the doctor's advice. Please point out to your fiancé that his attitude is not helping your condition and that you need support right now esp psychologically. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of a balanced slimming diet you can use. Continue with the workouts as exercise not only helps with weight loss, but also improves the mood because you make endorphins when you do physical activity.
Hang in there and see your dr ASAP
