i had a friend that was also on the depo. she was hoping it would help her gain weight, but it did the exact opposite. she lost a dramatic amount of weight while she was on it. so it is defiantly true that you can lose weight while on the depo.

the only way she was able to stop losin weight was by switching birth control. she tried everything while on the depo, they even had her on the pill too. but nothing seemed to work.
so i would probably recommend you do the same if you continue to lose weight.
